Sometimes in life you have to make a change. And sometimes you have to make a whole bunch of changes.
So it is that JIRM is born and stands where once stood Jeremy Irons And e Ratgang Malibus.
Having dropped the cumbersome moniker, the Swedish heavy rockers embark on a new era with Surge Ex Monumentis – marked as much by a tightening of sound as name.
For their rst record as JIRM, the Stockholm-based four-piece of vocalist/guitarist Karl Apelmo, guitarist Micke Pettersson, bassist Viktor Källgren, and drummer Henke Persson cast o the shackles of expectation entirely. eir style is no less expansive, but it’s become entirely their own, a driving mind meld between psychedelia, classic metal, heavy rock, and individualized realms beyond. Surge Ex Monumentis brims with newfound energy at the same time it benets from the lessons JIRM have learned since rst getting together in 2004 and releasing albums like Elefanta (2009), Bloom (2011) and Spirit Knife (2014), a record Mass Movement crowned, “a blissful mixture of Soundgarden at their grooviest and Pink Floyd...a terric album of sunny day, top down, cruising music.” With as much progressive force as raw sweat behind them, JIRM has never been more themselves than they are on Surge Ex Monumentis, and even as they redene who they are and what they do as a band, they remain singularly powerful in their delivery and completely unmistakable. e seven-track oering was captured at Puch Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, mixed by Oskar Lindberg at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg, Sweden and mastered by Chris Gooseman at Baseline Audio Labs in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
