I think it was about a year ago while on errands with a buddy of mine and we were listening to one of the SiriusXM broadcasts of the day and enjoying a really ripping and agressive tune. As neither of us had any clue on who this might be, the system soon showcased that this was a band called Jinjer. It was my first go at them and while I didn’t know too much at the time I was pretty certain that I was listening to something that was going to take the Metal world by the throat. Now as 2019 closes its doors for the brand-new year it would appear that I was correct. Here’s the latest news from their HQ.
