Jinjer is a progressive groove metal powerhouse from Ukraine. After one of the biggest years in their career, the four-piece band confirmed its gig on the Main Stage at Pol'and'Rock Festival 2022.
Jinjer was formed in 2009, but the official launch of the Ukrainian metal wrecking machine falls in 2010, when the incredibly gifted and versatile vocalist, Tatiana Shamilyuk, joined the group. Working on their sound and honing their style to perfection, the band released their now cult first album in 2012. 'Inhale, Don't Breathe' was followed by "Cloud Factory" in 2014. In the meantime, Jinjer was named Best Ukrainian Metal Band. In 2016 the band signed with Napalm Records and went on to release "King of Everything". The album was promoted by the "Pisces" single and video which garnered tremendous interest from fans and positive feedback from music critics. To date, the video surpassed 32M views. A relentless touring schedule followed suit - first taking the group across Eastern and Central Europe and then to Israel, UEA, the UK and Canada as well as Latin America, Australia, and Southern Africa. Jinjer and their raw, compelling take on progressive groove metal and metalcore went global.
The four-piece band lives and breathes touring, and when on stage, they are a force to be reckoned with. Led by the charismatic vocalist, who can effortlessly switch from deep growling to clear melodic vocal, Jinjer presents the rawest power and an impressive mixture of progressive groove metal and metalcore with inlays from funk, reggae and even jazz music. Tatiana's vocal range transports her from the depth of the darkest hell with its growling and screaming to heaven with the clear, beautiful sound of melodic signing. The rest of the band is not far behind - Jinjer is versatile, not shying from creative experiments and committed to producing the best music they can
