JINJER RETURNS WITH WALLFLOWERS
Wallflowers by Jinjer is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. The band has been rising through the ranks these last few years and has not only become one of the hottest commodities in metal. But helped establish Napalm Records as one of the premier labels in metal.
While labels have been gobbled up by huge corporations. Or pigeonholed themselves by only promoting one form of music. Napalm has really taken a step forward and signed a lot of exciting bands. They are also releasing, as alluded to above, music by all types of metal bands. As sacrilegious as this may sound, positioning themselves alongside legendary names like Nuclear Blast, and becoming a modern-day version of what Roadrunner was during their hey-day. If only we could get them to work on their shipping costs!
Wallflowers sees Jinjer continue their evolution as a band. They are more ferociously heavy than ever before. When the band needs to bust out complicated passages, they shine as always from a progressive standpoint. And when necessary lead singer Tatiana Shmailyuk’s voice can cut through the madness with either her guttural or clean vocals. It all depends on what the composition calls for. Either way, both styles are equally deadly.
If you’re looking for a loud, angry album, well then Jinjer’s Wallflowers may be a good fit for you.

I recently had one of my Patrons tell me that they were not familiar with Danko Jones’ work. Being the music nerd that I am, I instantly had to provide him with a Danko Jones playlist to help him prep for the release of Power Trio.
The album’s title is very appropriate. Throughout the band’s career, they have always oozed swagger, spit, and sweat. But it is often difficult to wrap around your head that there are only three guys behind these monstrous songs. The band has been going at it for a quarter of a decade, and although you would think they would have perfected what they do by now, this album proves otherwise.
The silver lining for Danko Jones during the downtime caused by the pandemic is that they have really keyed in on their sound. The guitars sound extra thick, extra heavy. The drums sound louder than ever, and the bass helps glue everything together. Along the way, you can always count on Danko Jones music having melodies galore. The band has always done this so well.
Their songs have always made me move. Whether that means standing up, shouting out lyrics, and headbanging. Flooring the gas and driving faster in my car. Or just turning the volume up so everyone in the neighborhood feels the music with me.
If I’m in a shit mood I can put on Danko Jones to either get me out of my funk. Or say fuck ’em all you all, and just rock out. There are very few bands that say let’s move, let’s have a good time, let’s take things to the next level through their music without actually having to say it. Danko Jones is one of them.
Power Trio is one of Danko Jones’ finest hours. How many bands can you say that of after being in the game for 25 years? Power Trio is the perfect album to get into the band. Or make you remember exactly why you’ve always loved them.
