If you’re a fan of singer and songwriter Cody Jinks, the fall of 2021 promises to be an exciting time for you. The 41-year-old Texas native plans to release not just one – but two – albums before the end of the year.
Making that even better, the two albums will be from two different genres. According to The Boot, one of the albums is titled “Mercy.” This album is a solo country effort by Cody Jinks. The other album is a metal album titled “None the Wiser.” For this project, the singer worked with his band, Caned By Nod.
Both albums will be available on Nov. 12.
Interestingly, Cody Jinks recorded both “Mercy” and “None the Wiser” at the same time. This was a new and “very different” experience for the artist.
“Literally, it was being in one studio and walking next door. And going from this beautiful country song that we’re doing to just this really angry metal song, flipping a switch,” Jinks explained.
Cody Jinks reportedly wrote songs for the “Mercy” album while he was in quarantine due to the global COVI-19 pandemic. It is an album that will, of course, his usual “electric country” style. It also has touches of rock, blues, and soul.
With the “None the Wiser” album, Jinks has returned to a genre he is familiar with. Before his country music career took off he was a member of a metal band. Also, some of the songs on this album were penned years ago. For example, some tracks have their origins during the early years of the century. This album is described as having elements of “classic rock, thrash metal, and psychedelic-tinged grunge.”
