Bloodjinn to Re-Issue Leave This World Breathing, Share Remixed/Remastered “Goodnight But Not Goodbye”
Seminal North Carolina metal act Bloodjinn were one of the very first American bands to combine hardcore with European-style metal into what would end up being called metalcore. They were right there with Converge, Cave In, Killswitch Engage, Every Time I Die, Shadows Fall and the like, and while they never achieved the success of those bands, they left a lasting impression on the metal world and their output stands the test of time.
Now Bloodjinn (pronounced “bludgeon”) will re-release their 2002 album, Leave This World Breathing, in September, and they’ve just unveiled a remixed and remastered version of “Goodnight But Not Goodbye.” The newly refreshed cut features an appropriately vintage cast of collaborators: producer Jamie King (BTBAM) on the boards and redesigned artwork by Mike D’Antonio of Killswitch Engage, who provided cover designs for countless bands from the era (including his own).
You can give the new version of “Goodnight But Not Goodbye” a spin below and buy it here for a buck.

7/10 – A.M.P. Fest – Wytheville, VA @ The Pit (Helheim Haunted Attractions)
9/25 – Furnace Fest – Birmingham, AL @ Sloss Furnaces
