Jinjer is a progressive metal band from Ukraine. They emerged in 2008 with the original singer Maksym Fatullaiev, guitarist Dmitriy Oksen, drummer Vyacheslav Okhrimenko and bassist Oleksiy Svynarand. These founding members came out with their debut EP in 2009 titled, Objects in Mirror Are Closer than They Appear. During their early years, the band underwent several line-up changes and dropped self-released EPs. In 2013, the band won the Best Ukrainian Metal Act award held by Kyiv's InshaMuzyka label.
In 2014, the band released its debut album, Cloud Factory. The album was later picked up and re-released by the independent heavy metal music label Napalm Records. Jinjer started to tour overseas. This time the line-up comprises vocalist Tatiana Shmailyuk, guitarist Roman Ibramkhalilov, bassist Eugene Abdukhanov, and drummer Yevhen Mantulin. In 2016, the band’s singles “Pisces” and “I Speak Astronomy” from their second album, King of Everything, became viral on Youtube. Moreover, Metal Hammer named “Pisces” one of “The 100 Greatest Metal Songs of the 21st Century.” During the summer, the band’s consistent tours all over the world were commended by the Ukrainian government. Hence, Jinjer was named the official ambassador to the country.
Grammy-nominated Christian metal band P.O.D. will support Jinjer on this much-anticipated tour. The band has released 11 studio albums and sold over 12 million copies worldwide. Their 2001 studio effort, Satellite, earned triple-platinum status after selling more than three million units.
