In less than 10 years, the four-piece progressive groove metal wrecking machine known as JINJER have carved their very own place in the heavy metal landscape and are poised to go even further in 2019 and beyond.

Since then, JINJER have been nominated and won the Best Ukranian Metal Act award for Best Ukrainian Metal Band multiple times. Continue reading

I don’t know if he had any idea this is the same building he played all those years ago. Continue reading

Mickey Thomas joined Jefferson Starship in 1979 and immediately jumped in and recorded the album Freedom at Point Zero. That album produced the hit single “Jane” which climbed to #14 on the Billboard Hot 100.
