JUROJIN - The Living Measure Of Time

The debut release of this refreshing new Metal band from London combine the hard, melodic and gritty elements of the genre with a precise experimental edge and World influences that opens up the appeal. This may polarize those on the opposite ends who want hard & heavy and nothing else, and those who want it mild without the aggression. It's that middle ground of open-minded listeners who will find this a fascinating and rich listening experience. Fans of bands in the vein of Tool, Incubus and The Mars Volta will instantly click with Jurojin. The blend of hard and catchy tunes with its clean melodic vocals also get acoustic, technical and even jazzy passages, while the Eastern influences come in the shape of Tabla percussion and the exotic string sounds of the Santoor. Most of the tracks were mixed and mastered by Drew Mazurek, who has worked on high profile rock projects like Linkin Park and HIM.
