‘Kinjiru’ (a Japanese word meaning to forbidden/prohibited) is the moniker given to the latest outing by Demons Of Old Metal producer and frontman, Roger B. A marked departure from his day job, Kinjiru sits comfortably next to the likes of Pitchshifter, Pain and Ministry while still absorbing Roger’s distinct love of eighties thrash.

Releasing the 4D EP on Halloween, PureGrainAudio is exclusively premiering one of the tracks on the EP, “Never Ever”.

“Never Ever is about two people that have an irresistible attraction to each other yet have to deny how they feel because of the scandal, hurt and outrage it would cause in their social circle or family.”

“The 4D’s are Deviance, Desire, Depravity and Debauchery, all of which are covered in the lyrics of the songs. It is a play on the old saying that you need 4 D’s to succeed; desire, dedication, determination and drive. I’ve been a metalhead all my life, but I do have a weak spot for catchy chart pop and some trance, so this was an opportunity to see how I could merge the different styles. Also. we’re living in pretty dark times at the moment, so this EP is intended as a bit of light relief for both myself and the listener!”

4D Track Listing:

01. Never Ever
02. Come Join the Freaks
03. Safeword
04. Voodoo Sex Doll

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
