Enlarge The song, which is nearly a decade old, has never sounded this good.

Bloodjinn Release Remixed/Remastered/Reworked Version of “Grey Worlds”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Bloodjinn’s 2002 album, Leave This World Breathing, has always been killer — but the upcoming remixed/remastered/reworked version is more than just a ploy to get fans to buy something they already have.

To wit: this new iteration of the Breathing track “Grey Worlds.” This song has always been awesome, but it has never sounded this good. The remix by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me) is on par with the work Josh Wilbur did cleaning up another seminal NWOAHM release from the same era, Lamb of God’s As the Palaces Burn.

Like Palaces, Breathing used to sound kinda muddy. Not the worst problem in the world — the excellence of the songwriting and musicianship still managed to shine through — but still… now every detail of “Grey Worlds” is now crystal clear, and the track sounds like it was recorded last week (which also speaks to the fact that Bloodjinn were waaaaayyyy out front on the whole metalcore thing, and really never got their due).

Listen to “Grey Worlds” 2021 below (and heck, I’ll include “Grey Worlds” 2002 down there as well, for comparison’s sake). The new edition of Leave This World Breathing comes out September 3 on all digital platforms. A limited edition cassette tape (only 50 copies will be made in each color) is available now in Bloodjinn’s online merch store. The first-ever LP version of the album will come out in 2022 (due to vinyl delays). 

The band will play Furnace Fest at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL on September 25. Other acts scheduled to appear include Killswitch Engage, Converge, Cave In, Andrew W.K., and Darkest Hour.
