Jinjer just released their newest modern metal milestone, ”Macro”, on Friday, and there’s no stopping them now – their gripping third official video for the song “Pit Of Consciousness” is out today. The video, presented in full black and white, emphasizes the inner dissension pictured as the narrators “Pit of Consciousness” – lifted musically by a demanding rhythm between punishing riffs, Eugene’s distinctive base lines and Vlad’s intense drumming-together with Tatiana’s impressive voice, the song pushes the genre to the next level.
“I keep on losing the keys from reality
Bassist Eugene states this about the new song:
“This is a song that can be applied to each of us in the band. Living a life at a full pace after years of touring, have we accidentally let someone else into our heads and become foreigners to ourselves? Holding on to the hope that we can keep those doors shut …”
While January 2019’s ”Micro” EP proved to be a short exercise in madness and technical brilliance, fans still aren’t prepared for what Jinjer has in store with the absolutely unbridled Macro. Defying all boundaries, the aptly titled opening track, “On The Top”, features the band`s eclectic trademarks and obeys one law only – their own. Frontwoman Tatiana Shmaylyuk defines the unique character of the Ukrainian act with menacing whispers, enthralling clean vocals and brutal growls whilst lethally groovy riff cascades melt into twisted songwriting. There is space for a microscopic bit of reggae “Judgement (& Punishment)” in all the heaviness, the double bass is beautifully out of control on “Pausing Death”, and technically superior tracks like “Home Back” defy gravity.
The band states this about the new release:
“Going from small things to bigger ones is the natural order of things, and we’ve paved a path from Micro to Macro, carrying the weight of feelings, emotions and experience. This is a monumental point in the story of JINJER, the quintessence of what makes us what we are now as the people and as a band. We are proud of every single note sung and played on Macro and can’t wait for you to give it a listen!”
Macro is available in the following formats:
After Jinjer finishes their current North American tour on November 2 in Portland, OR, they will begin their almost completely sold out tour of Europe – with just one week’s break in between!

In less than 10 years, the four-piece progressive groove metal wrecking machine known as Jinjer have carved their very own place in the heavy metal landscape and are poised to go even further in 2019 and beyond. Hailing from Donetsk, this Ukrainian musical oddity formed in 2009 but consider the official start of the band with the addition of the incredible vocalist and femme fatale, Tatiana Shmailyuk, in 2010. Since then, Jinjer have been nominated and won the Best Ukranian Metal Act award for Best Ukrainian Metal Band multiple times.
This year’s ”Micro” EP was received with open arms by fans and critics alike, climbed to the top of many industry charts and radio station lists worldwide and once again showcased the musical depth and songwriting talent of the band, as well as Tatiana’s amazing vocal range. The band will build upon these successes with ”Macro”.
