Relevant as ever:
With your love for hollowbodies, I should have pegged you as a Killing Joke fan!
They are no less relevant these days. Still in regular rotation for me...
"I wonder who chose the color scheme. It's very nice."
Great spark, fire, and light right out of the starting gate, though they've guttered a few times in the past decade.
As a Killing Joke fan since Turn To Red came out in 1979, I think their last 2 albums are among their best.
I actually think their genius. I like all the albums. I have all the albums.
The s/t debut, what this for, Revilations, and Fire Dances are all great, not a weak moment in any of them. Tried a few later cuts, couldn't get into it. Any post 1985 stand outs?
I love it when people stay with, and allow a band to grow and evolve.
Opinions may differ and thats fine - but since the question was asked, here's what I think is a standout from their most recent release. The tension and release, and dramatic build up make this a potent blend of their core sound and yet brought forward into new turf at the same time.
Their 90's albums Pandaemonium and Democracy are pretty good, especially Democracy imo.
OK - here's a real treat: A preview of a new track in the works - to further respond to the question of what to look forward to post 1985?
Pandemonium is one of the most overlooked albums of the 90s. IMO.
