Quite an interesting EP here. Jinjer mixes the modern metalcore sound with a "prog-ier" edge and it surely distances them from their peers.

Micro shows Jinjer further improving on their sound and Tatiana yet again showing her amazing vocal abilities. The instrumentals on here are probably my favourite when compared to their two albums, which makes me excited for any future work they put out. I loved pretty much all of the tracks on here, but I don't feel like I'd be coming back to this EP much.

Favourite Tracks: Perennial; Teacher, Teacher!

Least Favourite Track: Micro
This EP is my favorite release by this band, it's a clear improvement sonically, instrumentally and production wise with way more prog influence but still, more or less, following the same formula from King of Everything.
Favorites: Perennial (their best song), and Teacher, Teacher!
This EP is just perfect.

Jinjer made me enjoy metal. I always come back to this EP. The vocals on this are impressive.

I can't describe the music in it's theory. But this tracklist makes so much fun. As I was listening to this the first time nothing had been predictable on this EP. And that gained my attention, after listening to this several times I enjoy it even more and somehow I find new elements in those tracks I didn't pay attention to earlier.
