Killing Fucking Joke
 
Or: How does a band very rarely suck for forty goddamned years











No fucking idea how they do it

Shadaloo 12-01-2019 01:04 PM

Turbulence is certainty
Turbulence is friction between you and me
Suffering and pain crystallized in a brain that recreates the process again
Draws borders, cites laws
Monopolies of food and trade start wars
Every time we try to impose order we create chaos we create chaos - breakdown

I have my doubts
A state of eternal conflict is all I have found
We build a wall that is made of tears
Watch the house fall down
And at the end of my life
Yes at the end of my life
All shall be well all is as it was always meant to be...

Blessed are the meek it is written they shall inherit the earth
Watch her dying of cancer after a lifetime of caring for the poor
Child with her arms blown off screams as she bleeds upon the rocks
Sickened by my self-flagellation but i don't know how to stop
Where is your love, my loving god? - breakdown

I have my doubts
This base stand of filth and the people around
We build a wall that is made of tears
Watch the house fall down
And at the end of my life
Yes at the end of my life
All shall be well all is as it was always meant to be...

Globalism and the UN neutralized by ethnic cleansing
Animal aggression and a mind to perceive this terminal conflict
Awareness is a curse - the more you open your eyes the more you despise
Fashioned in the creator's yolk
It must be some sort of practical joke
And in the corn, circles of chaos - breakdown

They opened for Tool and the mix was atrocious

And I think you’re overrating their studio output a bit; they tend to be very repetitive and tonally narrow (like most of Marilyn Manson’s music). I mean, they’re fine for what they do I guess.

Shadaloo 12-01-2019 01:16 PM

The show I saw in 2012 remains the absolute best I've ever seen in my life. They're not a stadium band

Walking with Gods is repetitive as fuck but I still love it

Overrated is impossible here, they do not get enough love

No Eighties no Come As You Are

TuralyonW3 12-01-2019 03:44 PM

I could see them being cool in a small club on drugs

FoolofaTook 12-01-2019 03:45 PM

Small club is on drugs? When did this happen?


We should do an intervention.

Shadaloo 12-02-2019 12:27 PM



Fucking yes

Mals Marola 12-02-2019 04:56 PM

always thought these guys were more of a Skinny Puppy/Ministry type industrial act, but i guess not? I like what you posted, in any case

Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:04 PM

this is actually the worst of the industrial acts along with ministry and skinny puppy

Mals Marola 12-02-2019 05:06 PM

rats!

Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:06 PM

they WOULD be the band to open for fucking complete ass would rather be deaf than finish a song Tool

Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:07 PM

Cab Vol or dieeeeeeeeeeee


Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:09 PM

23 skidoo


Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:13 PM

Throbbing Gristle...


Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:13 PM

Nurse with Wound


Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:15 PM

in fact you can't go wrong with Industrial as long as it isn't Skinny Puppy, Ministry, or Killing Joke

Shadaloo 12-02-2019 05:19 PM

I think literally the only thing Elph has ever posted that I've agreed with him on is Fad Gadget

the last thing he posted that I listened to was Scars and it was basically the same song six times over or something

Cabaret Voltaire is boring as shit regardless of period

I coudl take or leave Gristle, mostly leave

Anyway enough of his troll attempts

"These bands border on the mainstream and so are bad by definition"

Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:22 PM

Scars is a great coldwave band

it's a feature of the genre that the songs are samey generally...but it's actually not even that much the case for Scars

take or leave Throbbing Gristle makes no sense to me if you actually like Industrial

you know, the band that makes the word mean anything

don't give me something about popularity, TG is the premier Industrial act

so so wrong

but yeah that's the thing

I would expect no less from a Killing Joke fan

Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:31 PM

I would die for NAG NAG NAG

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh *headbangs skull off*

Closer to Ministry. They basically started out post-punk, kinda moved into industrial rock over a very long period. Dipped into new wave through the mid-eighties, were forced to re-brand the lead singer's abysmal solo album as a KJ album. Nearly killed the band. They went away for a while, slowly came back through the 90's as an actual industrial rock act. Went full industrial metal with their self-titled in 2003 which blew everyone the fuck away. Most every album is worth checking out, just stay the fuck away from Outside The Gate. Recommend the 1980 self-titled, Night Time, Pandemonium, Democracy, the 2003 self-titled and Hosannas From The Basements of Hell in particular.

Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:37 PM

Frank Tovey was inspired you are right on that at least, honestly that's good enough for me

love love love Fad Gadget

I'm DJ'ing in Austin this weekend might slip in a Fad Gadget track

Shadaloo 12-02-2019 05:44 PM

And if you need further evidence that Elph is hilarious, behold another example of his well-established "lol metal" attitude of his as a proud industrial fan which has led him to try and derail this entire thread.

Actually bringing up Throbbing Gristle as a viable alternative to Killing Joke as if the music was in any fucking way similar

Posting eighteen minutes of farting into a mic






checks out

Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:53 PM

lol never expand into real industrial then

always stay comfortable with the 2nd rate

Elphenor 12-02-2019 05:55 PM

need to water it down for consumption first

add metal to it so the dunderhead jocks in a different uniform can get in on it

don't bother with anything clever or subversive, don't push boundaries

Shadaloo 12-02-2019 06:14 PM

Industrial rock is not industrial and I don't know why you're even bothering to try and make this comparison. Narcissism?

Oh that's right

Accessible means bad to you

I could throw a cinder block down a rusted ventilation shaft, put a rabbit on an old Korg, mumble three sentences over it about a dolphin contracting herpes, record the whole thing and you'd praise it as "authentic".

Let's be real, you'd be shitting on Reznor for ripping off Dig It in 1988 if Skinny Puppy had never made music videos

Why you gotta be the guy that can't just let people enjoy things

Shadaloo 12-02-2019 06:15 PM

You don't think this pissed anyone off back in the day? Didn't cause a stir?

because people have this terrible mentality that if something challenges them it must be that people are pretending to like it as demonstrated here

Elphenor 12-02-2019 06:38 PM

and my life sucks and I'm a sad sack with nothing better to do tbh I realize it's a dick move

this shouldn't matter to me at all but yeah the "Industrial Rock" genre is some BS watering down of some really mindblowing music

normies reeee
