After 18 years since the release of Bloodjinn’s first full length album, ‘Murder Eternal: Seven Short Stories For The Slightly Psychotic’ will be re-released with new artwork and fully remastered by Jamie King (Between The Buried & Me, For Today, Killwhitneydead, The Contortionist).
Original album bio:
It all started in 1999, with the release of their debut EP, To Bleed The Demon (Flatline Records), Bloodjinn unveiled an uncompromising and chaotic blend of hardcore and metal. Murder Eternal picks up where To Bleed The Demon left off, only they matured into a full-fledged metalcore powerhouse. This North Carolina quartet observed no boundaries in regards to the construction of their songs dynamics.
Bloodjinn could be described as “a whirlwind of sound,” as many songs drift between moments of unbridled metallic ferocity into lush and subtly textured guitar passages, ultimately keeping the listener on their toes. Reference tracks: “The Adventures of Johnny Blue-Collar,” “Forsaken On 52” and “Four Seconds” for prime examples of what Bloodjinn do best. They ROCK! – Matt Rudzinski (Tribunal Records)
