Killing Joke - Revelations (LP, vinyl rip). 1982.

   Killing Joke’s gothic rock grew exponentially more sludgy and brutal with each passing album; by the mid 80s they were basically a metal band. Still, their early records were terrific: particularly their third, Revelations, which they recorded with krautrock overlord Conny Plank
   During the making of the album the band immersed themselves in the occult, succumbing to the paranoia that such an obsession inevitably yields, especially when paired with heavy drug use.
    In 1982, right after the release of this record, singer Jaz Coleman moved to Iceland, in order to survive the imminent apocalypse, with his bandmates following soon after. The apocalypse never came, and Killing Joke duly lost their mojo (from Fact magazine).
   This third album is characterized by "the wall of sound" production with Kraut rock elements. Two of their best tracks are here: "The Hum" (a gothic/metal/kraut masterpiece) and the speedy metal-punk "Land of milk and honey".

  1. Γειά σου Γιώργο. Ωραία παρουσίαση στο "Revelations" και γενικά στους Killing Joke. Είναι από τα συγκροτήματα που ακόμη και σήμερα παίζουν φανταστικά, ακόμη και αν έχουν σκληρύνει κάπως τον ήχο τους. Και τι με αυτό, άλλωστε; Έχουν σκληρύνει και οι εποχές που ζούμε, έτσι;

    1. Συμφωνώ! Ακούγοντας και την καινούργια δουλειά τους MMXII ενθουσιάστηκα.
      Ακόμα και τα παλιά τους κομμάτια ακούγονται εντελώς σημερινά. Οι άνθρωποι είναι μεγαλοφυίες!
