Dark and moody, Kijera is the real deal. A bedroom artist with all the skills to create these unearthly tones that border along the lines of the darkest of grunge songs, then blast into a full-throttle screaming vocal layered over a brash metal track – but still retaining that signature sludgy tempo.

“I Don’t Mind” is the soundtrack to the descent into hell and before you imagine it – no, it’s not the heaviest thing in the world. But it hits just the same, if not harder. A real command of dynamics is shown here, building up until an all-mighty ending that doesn’t attack your senses, but still provides an all-engulfing experience.

“War Within Me” dials it back slightly and implores a more early-2000s nu-rock sound with melodic vocals ands a big, open drum patterns and breakdowns galore. A catchy track that shows another side to this multi-faced artist.

Then we end with “Take A Chance With You Soul” which is almost a straight-up grunge track, but it’s overall demeanour still resonating with the previous tracks as the song reaches its end.

Kijera is clearly still experimenting with his sound, but it’s not lost on me that his talent and ability to write dark, heavy music should be admired. Once he’s figured out his path, whichever way that may be – we should all be ready to hear a lot more of Kijera!
