Released in January 2019, Jinjer‘s music video for the song “Perennial” — off their Micro EP — already has over 5 and a half million views. Super fan Mychailo Halinin has watched it more than a few times — something that is made readily apparent by his jaw-dropping new LOGO remake of the clip that the band just released via their official YouTube channel. Producing the brilliantly exacting reenactment also provided Halinin with a great outlet for his creativity amid the boredom and isolation of these social-distancing times.
“This video was made by Jinjer fan and supporter Mychailo Halinin,” the fast-rising Ukrainian progressive metal group commented in the description for their YouTube posting. “The band was so impressed by his LEGO remake of ‘Perennial,’ his talent, creativity and drive that they approached him to release this on their official channels.”
Jinjer bass player Eugene Abdukhanov added, “Who has not played with LEGO as a kid? Who has not secretly dreamed of starring in their own LEGO MOVIE!? What a wonderful gift and pleasure this was to watch and now to release Perennial LEGO to the world … these are indeed very strange days but thank you Mychailo for making our day a little bit more bright and positive!”
The Micro EP was released in January last year, and followed a few months later by the follow-up full-length Macro. Jinjer embarked on their first-ever North American headlining tour in support of the LP, and were set to return to side of the pond this spring with Suicide Silence and more, a run that had to be postponed due the COVID-19 pandemic.
