Killing Joke in Babel-Malmö. Sweden on March 22, 2013. A great event that everybody would like to enjoy. Have a nice Monday, Yareah friends!
Killing Joke are an English post-punk band formed in October 1978 in Notting Hill, London, England; other sources report the band formed in early 1979. Founding members Jaz Coleman (vocals, keyboards) and Geordie Walker (guitars) have been the only constant members.
A key influence on industrial rock, their early music was described by critics Stephen Thomas Erlewine and John Dougan as “quasi-metal … dancing to a tune of doom and gloom”, which gradually evolved over the years, incorporating elements of electronic music, synthpop, gothic rock, and alternative rock, though always emphasising Coleman’s “savagely strident vocals”.
Finding modest commercial success, Killing Joke have influenced many later bands and artists, such as Nirvana, Ministry, Amen, Lamb of God, Nine Inch Nails, Porcupine Tree, Napalm Death, Behemoth, Amebix, Big Black, Slipknot,Opeth, Murderdolls, Godflesh, Scorn, Hole/Courtney Love, Dead by April, Marilyn Manson, Tool, Helmet, Prong, Metallica, Primus, Jane’s Addiction, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters, Faith No More, Nick Harper, Blacklist, Shihad,Pitchshifter, Das Oath, Rammstein, and Korn, all of whom have at some point cited some debt of gratitude to Killing Joke.
MMXII (2012 in Roman numerals) is the fifteenth studio album by Killing Joke with Jaz Coleman on vocals, Kevin “Geordie” Walker on guitar, Martin “Youth” Glover on bass, and Paul Ferguson on drums. The album was released on 2 April 2012 on Spinefarm Records, and is distributed worldwide via Universal Music Group. The album was released on October 30th in the USA.
The album, which features ten tracks, was engineered and mixed by Clive Goddard, Tom Dalgety, Michael Rendall, and Reza Udhin, and produced by the band. It was released as a CD, a double coloured vinyl, and as a downloadable album viaiTunes with “New Uprising” as an exclusive track.
