Cody Jinks teases return of middle finger tagging on HARD METAL
He’s in this Hard Metal again. Don’t worry, Cody Jinks isn’t leaving the country. If you hadn’t heard this fall, Jinksy will be releasing two albums; a country and a metal. Today Jinks gave us a first listen to the new metal project of Caned by Nod.
At the end of last spring, Jinks announced his new album “country” Pity. Specifying it as a country seemed strange at the time, because of course it would be a country. It all became much clearer when we learned that the Fort Worth native was at the helm of a new metal band, Caned By Nod. This side project would also release a new album, and this “metal” album would be called None The wise.
I know, it’s hard to follow.
And if you are worried about Cody’s artistic endeavors, don’t be. Ward Davis is not. In fact, it was Davis who announced his buddy’s upcoming project. In June, he joined a Cody Jinks fan page and shared this:
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. – Davis district
Jinks has already informed his fans that he will be integrating his new metal songs when he hits the road in September.
