Jinn

Although this band shares their name with at least three other groups, this release is pretty solid. The United Kingdom’s Jinn brings a little bit of punk and thrash to their metal sound, sounding somewhere between Mind Eraser and At the Gates. It’s not too dissimilar from the rise of bands like Isis, in some of its slow, epic parts as well as the artwork. The vocals can be indecipherable, which is par for the course of this genre, it can, however, make it hard to listen to at times. But the album progresses well, bringing in different beats and guitar work throughout to keep you engaged. The recording really benefits the heaviness of their sound as well. Even if this is not innovative enough to make Jinn huge, their intensity and heavy sensibilities definitely make this worth checking out.
