With a reputation forged in fire, brimstone & dark magick, Killing Joke have long been one of rock’s most iconic & influential outfits, with a string of revered recordings to their name.
Famously described by drummer Paul Ferguson as “the sound of the earth vomiting”, this collection of UK musicians once again tours & records with its original line-up intact, and the last two studio albums – ‘Absolute Dissent’ (2010) and ‘MMXII’ (2012) – have been amongst its finest achievements ever.
Covered by Metallica, Foo Fighters and more, KJ’s apocalyptic vision continues to draw praise from a great many high-profile peers, and the band’s considerable musical legacy can be heard in the works of Nirvana, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails and more; meanwhile, the predictions of front-man Jaz Coleman appear to be coming to pass at an ever-increasing rate, shining a spotlight on a world seemingly spiralling out of control.
If the end is indeed nigh, then Killing Joke are the ultimate soundtrack. Put on the headphones and wait for oblivion
