Today (June 2), Cody Jinks revealed details of his upcoming new “country” album. I, like probably most of you, first took the fact that he kept calling it a “country” album was just a way of reinforcing the fans that it would be a real country album, you know. , like us’ I expect from Jinks.
Well after a Davis neighborhood‘posted on a Cody Jinks fan page this afternoon, there may be more to it than that. It looks like Jinks’ repeated use of “country” in the post could go much deeper – it could actually be quite intentional.
You all remember that metal album Cody Jinks started talking about last year, right? Well, Davis posted a massive update on the (COMPLETED) project on Flocker’s Facebook page.
Here’s what Ward had to say:
I wanted to share something with you guys.
As you all know, I’m a huge supporter and fan of my mate Cody, and he’s always been the same way when it comes to me. I’m not the type to blow smoke out of her ass or someone else for that matter. I reserve my opinion on a lot of things for people with whom I think you should know. In today’s case, I wanted to share something with you, the flakes, that hold my friend in such high esteem, like me.
As many of you may have already figured out, Caned By Nod is the musical love child Cody sired with the 10,000 snakes in his head. I knew Cody had been talking about this “Metal Record” for several years, but I thought he maintained a level of sanity and objectivity to keep him from completely going into the background and entertaining his little wet dream.
I mean, Cody is our guy, right?
This is the voice and the songs that I, you and all other true country fans have been waiting for for years. Jinks walked in and opened the door for guys like me, and gave us all reason to believe country music was alive and well to the ears of the fans who needed it so badly. What the hell does he have to think of to step out of our little world to create something so far from such a pure form of American art?
Well, I don’t know what he was thinking, because after hearing the “metal record”, in the studio, I realized that there was more to my friend than I would ever know, because that the music he created for this Caned by Nod project, is a FUCKING MASTERPIECE.
The. I said it.
There are layers to this dude, man. I sat on the couch at the Sonic Ranch with my jaw on the floor for about an hour, as my old pal blew me away, over and over again. I like to think that the music Cody and I made together was one of his best, because I know it’s a part of mine. But this shit blows everything out of the water. I have no idea what the plans are for this disc. All I can tell you is I heard the record from top to bottom, and it’s literally one of the best things I’ve ever heard. When this mystique begins to spread, you will discover all that I suspected, and you will know it now for sure. Cody Jinks is a fucking genius, and the world will be delighted.
WOW. I’ll be honest here, I’m not even 100% what constitutes “metal”, but this afternoon Ward got me excited about this project.
Takeaway meals: Caned by the nod of the head is Jinks’ new side metal project. VSclick here to follow him (the group?) (the album?) on Facebook. We don’t know yet when we’ll have our first listen, but I’m intrigued. If you want to know more about the next news COUNTRY Jinks album, click here.
