A long wait has come to an end. Ukrainian modern metal powerhouse Jinjer are back with their new album Macro, the follow up to 2016’s, King of Everything, and the release of the Micro EP earlier this year. Due out on October 25th via Napalm Records, Macro will feature what you’ve come to expect from Jinjer; punishing guitar riffs, aggressively blended vocals, and deep lyrics which will make this the band’s most advanced release yet. It will take listeners on a journey of trauma, power struggle and greed with its progressive groove metal backdrop.

Commenting on Macro, the group said, “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!”

To give you a preview of what to expect, the foursome has released the music video for “Judgement (& Punishment).” Reacting to its release, the group stated, “How many times have we reacted harshly to something just because we simply do not understand it? It seems like there is an innate human trait in all of us, when there is something unknown or unfamiliar that we tend to question the substance, to attack and finally to destroy it ... just like primitive apes. But when it strikes back it might be too much to bare. Every action causes a reaction. ‘Judgement (& Punishment)’ is a reaction. Just keep that in mind.”

While Micro was a short dose of metal brilliance, Macro will defy all boundaries, with frontwoman Tatiana Shmaylyuk defining the unique character of the band with her menacing whispers, enthralling clean vocals, and brutal growls over the lethally groovy riffs you’ve come to expect. There is also space for a tiny, small bit of reggae in “Judgement (& Punishment)” that exists within all the heaviness, the double bass is beautifully out of control on “Pausing Death,” and technically superior tracks like “Home Back” will defy all expectations.

01. On the Top
02. Pit of Consciousness
03. Judgment (& Punishment)
04. Retrospection
