You need to wait for the chorus. Don't skip forward to it, just wait for it.
based on the responses I had to give it a listen. Not my cup of tea but that was unexpected.
A co-worker sent me the link to that Jinjer video, and I liked it enough to go check out some of their other stuff out on Spotify.
A friend of mine said "that's gotta just be effects. She's not really doing that?". Yeah, she is.
It seemed to me like maybe there's just a touch of a chorus effect, very briefly, in a couple of spots; but yeah based on the live concert clips I found of the band, that's really her doing that.
5 years ago I would've said "not my cup of tea" too. Since then, I've come to terms with growled vocals. My acclimation process consisted of starting with one of Opeth's later, non-death-metal albums (Pale Communion
), and working my way backwards through their entire back catalog, all the way to their debut (Orchid
). Opeth, Benjamin Button style I guess.
Another recent (to me) metal find that I'm really getting into is Colored Sands
by Gorguts. I find this album strangely, irresistibly compelling. It is somewhat dissonant (OK, maybe very
dissonant depending on your definition), and sometimes feels like it is teetering on the brink of chaos. Yet there's also enough melody and structure to hold things together, and I think it may be that tension between chaos and order that I'm finding so appealing. Damn, this is good!

Oh, and speaking of unexpected... track 5 on Colored Sands
(if you make it that far).
And no, I haven't abandoned the other musical genres I enjoy. This past week I've also been chilling out to Djam Karet's new album A Sky Full Of Stars For A Roof
(one of the tracks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSjno9GEF1k
). And the latest from singer/songwriter Sam Phillips (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQUxFfz ... xIiVhL4V60
It's all good.
