Jinjer shows promise to become the next big band in metal, joining titans like Gojira. However, they do have ways to go. This album can sometimes drag on, particularly in the middle section, but there are plenty moments even there to showcase great musicianship
When I first saw a pic of this band I thought they're just another generic symphonic metal band but it turns out they make really cool shit. While I love their sound this album is really inconsistent and a lot of the songs sound totally the same. Also need to mention Tatiana Shmayluk's interesting vocal range, her clean vocals and screams sounds so extremely different from each other, you'll think it's a man and woman.

These reviews are gonna be a bit shorter so I can get through all the recommendations. Like every living metalhead in 2017, I'm already somewhat familiar with Jinjer due to their fantastic live performance of Pisces. And while I would say I prefer the live version over the studio version featured here, it's still very quality stuff. The rest of the album is pretty much on the same plane.
King Of Everything is a pretty good follow up to Cloud Factory and pretty much improves on the things that I didn't like about that album. This album is definitely the more memorable one of the two and is overall more interesting and intriguing. Furthermore, I do think that the quality was more consistent with this record. However, I do have to mention the fact that this did get a bit boring about half-way through, but it picked up again.
