From Argonauta Records:

Italy’s southern metal act, Jena, is gearing up for the release of their upcoming, sophomore studio album, which will be out on December 3, 2021 through Argonauta Records.

Ever since the band’s 2015- debut, »Womandile«, lauded by both fans and critics alike, Jena went through several ups and downs, from frenetically acclaimed live appearances to personal struggles and line-up changes. 2018 seen them rising from the ashes, and their forthcoming album, entitled »Graboid«, will not only mark a rebirth of their sound but their awaited return to the heavy music scene!

Presenting their strong bond of a new line-up also reflects the band’s progress of a topnotch songwriting, which is immediatly evident while listening to their first single, the album title track »Graboid«: Powerful, decisive and never trivial. Inspired by the southern metal scene in the likes of Down, Crowbar and Pantera, Jena combines the heaviness of razorsharp metal riffage, vibrant sludge grooves, a powerful voice with an addictive dose of the stoner and blues.

“After quite some time and looking forward to get back on the road, we are proud and excited to release our next album with Argonauta Records soon,” the band states. “»Graboid« is the record of our rebirth, it brings Jena back on stage and into the studio. On the album you can hear the whole transition, »Graboid« is a path, a journey, an adventure on a clear and common road.”

»Graboid« may symbolize a fierce return, but one can be sure, Jena came to stay and their new album, is going to shake grounds!

Guido Richini – Vocals, Guitar
Erik Cimenti – Guitar
Stefano Righele – Bass
Marco Gelmi – Drums
