Killing Joke’s fourth full-length album Fire Dances was first released in 1983, but the time is now right for a reissue. There is a bit more brightness in this album than in the group’s work up to this point, although there is still a sharp edge to their post-punk style. Pressed to picture disc vinyl bearing a fiery image. Edition of 1000, out on the Caroline label.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 16th December 2016This was the first Killing Joke record to feature bassist Paul Raven. Whilst not as dischordant as the previous Revelations, Fire Dances has a lot of power and intense rhythm. I classify this as the most 'primitive' KJ album, in that the lyrics and music actually sound like they are made by tribal warriors. Take a look at the firedances video, watch the people dancing round the fire! It captures the joy and exuberance of living life at it's simplest. Songs like "The Gathering", "Song & Dance" and "Feast of Blaze" shine pure simple emotion.
