Through their unique and heavy sound, over the top live performances and the mesmerizing voice of singer supreme Tatiana, Ukraine based band JINJER have quickly become one the most talked about names in the heavy metal landscape today. Fresh off a short North American tour, that saw multiple sold-out shows and the band’s first ever appearance at the Heavy MTL Festival, JINJER are set to return to the U.S. as direct support to DevilDriver. The tour kicks off October 23rd in Phoenix, AZ on October 23rd and runs through November 18th in San Diego, CA. A complete list of dates can be found below.
The reviews of JINJER‘s first live shows in North America have been nothing short of spectacular:
These guys blew me away, fierce, fast and hungry. For me they stole the show, can’t wait to see them again.
If there is only one thing to be said, it is “Holy Fuck!”
They sifted through their six-songs set striking a great balance between musical complexity and brutal neck-breaking groove
Their sound is unique and implements a ton of groove which bodes well with Tatiana’s complex vocal range which goes from incredibly low harsh tones to a beautiful and melodic singing
Says the band of the upcoming tour:
“It is hard to express how delighted we are to join the upcoming tour with mighty DevilDriver this Fall. Folks, be prepared for a devastating force on stage this October-November. JINJER will come back to the US with new songs, and our American fans will check them live first. It is gonna be hell of a tour!”
Watch a commercial for the tour HERE.
JINJER‘s groundbreaking second album “Cloud Factory” was re-issued in February 2018 via Napalm Records. (Order HERE) The band is currently hard at work on new music, which should be released later this year!

We have never been to some of these cities so we are looking forward to invading them and throwing down with you guys!!

New Album “Beast Reborn” Out August 24th via SPV/Steamhammer
Northern German Metallers MOB RULES have released a new single and lyric video for the song “Sinister Light” which is taken from their forthcoming studio album “Beast Reborn”.
Singer Klaus Dirks describes the song as: “Very spontaneously written, the song is based on a riff, which mainly puts the rhythm into the foreground. It quickly turns into a gripping goosebumps chorus with catchy and equally varied arrangements with a dense atmosphere. It also contains slightly folky influences with a triolic feeling. The content is based on “The Dog of Baskerville”, a Sherlock Holmes novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Supposedly an ancient curse presses on the Family Baskerville: A demon hellhound ambushes the family members in the moor next to the Baskervilles estate. The song takes its title from the mysteriously glowing moor, that enhances the sinister and dark ambience of the story. The Hunter turns into the hunted, as falling victim to his own curse.”
You can watch the video below:
“Beast Reborn” will be released through SPV/Steamhammer on August 24th as limited Boxset (incl. CD, 2LP, towel, hand signed photocard, 2 track bonus CD, patch, sticker etc….), CD DigiPak, 2LP Gatefold (incl. 1 bonus track), download and stream.

They’re back!!! The kings of comedy rock PSYCHOSTICK have a new album out now called “DO” and it only took four years to follow their extremely fan loved “IV: Revenge of The Vengeance”. And it wasn’t because they were lazy… NO! But because these geniuses of blending comedy, metal, heavy rock and the occasional spoof cover have been super busy releasing viral videos and touring the world.
“DO” may have passed fans by real quickly as the band just recently surprised the globe by releasing it during their live webcast on Twitch on July 24th. The band was originally going to reveal just album details but decided what’s better than sharing the whole darn thing with them.
“Whelp, here it is! “Do.” This whole “surprise, nerd! New album!” experiment was extremely fun, and we’re beyond appreciative of your patience and understanding. We agree with you – four years is way too long. We hope to fix that despite what Murph says!
“Do” is our first 100% independent, label-free release since 2003! Our production process is still completely internal, but this time all profits go straight to Psychostick. This is extremely huge for us and we can’t thank you enough.
2018 marked the fifteenth anniversary of our first album, and we’re beyond excited that we’re still kickin’, making globs upon globs of comedy metal. We aim to do this until they kick us out of the old folks’ home or off of Mars. That’s right. We’re goin’ to Mars, damnit.”
“DO” continues PSYCHOSTICK‘s reign as one of the funniest band’s to listen and laugh to. The album features over an hour of variety of laugh track headbanging tunes including singles “Adulting”, because who really wants to grow up and “From The Heart”, a ballad for those you really dislike.
Watch their videos for yourself!

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, and a style of music they’ve coined as ‘humorcore’. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.
Now residing in Chicago, IL, the almost 100 percent do-it-yourself laugh factory Psychostick have released five full-length albums–‘We Couldn’t Think of a Title’ (2006), ‘Sandwich’ (2009), ‘Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D’ (2011) and ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance’ (2014), ‘DO’ (2018) —and two EPs—their holiday album, ‘The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride’ (2007), and ‘The Digital Appetizer’. With their signature sound (Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed sexing Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic), Psychostick are crazy to share with fans many more comedy sing-a-longs on the road and more!
