Jinjer – Wallflowers [2021]

Jinjer Wallflowers Track List

Wallflowers is the fourth studio album by the Ukrainian progressive metal rock band Jinjer, released on August 27, 2021 via Napalm Records. It can be clearly seen that Wallflowers continues from where its predecessor - Macro (2019) ended. The quartet has once again demonstrated their exceptional ability to mix groove, prog, alternative and experimental influences to create a sound unlike anything that has ever come before. The first single and video Vortex contains the typically dark and brooding sound of Jinjer combined with the intensity, fury and rhythm of an electric guitar. With powerful drums paired with guitar tones and inimitable screaming vocals from lead singer Tatiana Shmailyuk, the band presented a four-minute tale of destruction and darkness. Using our talent as a performer to switch between a melodious and beautiful voice and a deep, harsh scream that focuses the listener's attention, we easily recognize Jinjer. Towards the end of the song, the melody is interrupted for just a second before exploding with a powerful roar, paired with heavy guitars. This is a triumph of beautiful chaos. Wallflowers not only represents a methodical and well thought out new level in the band's impressive career, but also reflects the personal adversity they have faced due to world events over the past year.
