Metal Monday – Jinjer – Pisces

And so, we are a week further and things on the Ukrainian front has still not let up. While I feel helpless to do or mean anything to the individuals effected by the war, I try do my part with this section of the blog. I can but wish that it will be resolved soon or that some one finally gets the balls to drop the nukes and blast us all to kingdom come. I am tired of feeling that all our lives are are for naught but fuel to some one else’s greed…

Today’s song is from another band hailing from Kiev. I heard some songs of them in the last few years as they have been making quite a name for themselves. When I hear some of the songs I can just imagine this is what Opeth would sound like with a woman vocalist. Make no mistake, Jinjer are their own thing and I do not compare them to Opeth, merely a personal observation of my own. This woman has got a lot of talent. From soothing you into near sleep to scaring the shit out of you with her brutal vocals. Jinjer is a great way to wow an unsuspecting friend that does not know his metal. Her band mates equally talented, from what I have heard they can Djent, play symphonic melodies, Death Metal, Groove Metal, Speed Metal to name but a few.

Stay strong.

Lyrics:

Step forward and meet a new sunrise
A coward is shivering inside
Today I’ll be a friend of mine
Who swallows suffering with smile
I drew a different reality
With unconditional loyalty
Ego hardly can be piqued
‘Cause I’m selfless

Scale armour blaze
Virgin innocence
One being brings life
Another runs for death
Scale armour blaze
Virgin innocence
One being brings life
Another runs for death

No promises I ever give
Don’t rely on me and I won’t deceive
The beginning or the end you can’t tell
When I wave my fin and shake my tail
I grew in different normality
With unblamable morality
Hooks and nets are there for me
But I’m skittish

Scale armour blaze
Virgin innocence
One being brings life
Another runs for death
Scale armour blaze
Virgin innocence
One being brings life
Another runs for death

A Neptune’s child shivering inside
Drowns in the liquid gold
Cherished his life to the underworld
Meet me flashing when winter cries

Pisces swimming through the river
All their life against the stream
Searching for a hook to catch on and see their sun beam
Then suffocate in painful tortures
On cutting tables of callous men
Under a knife of handsome butchers
Emeralds are ripped away
Emeralds are ripped away
Emeralds are ripped away
Emeralds are ripped away
