10/10 Jack 16th December 2016The true Godfathers of almost any modern heavy music out these days, these guys were/are criminally overlooked and undercredited for their influence and vision. The debut album by post-punk band Killing Joke is a sonic assault on the senses, but to fully grasp the extent of this, one must look at the timeline of its release. 1980. It was heavier, grimier, and more bizarre than nearly anything else at the time, and though countless have taken note and gone on to create louder, more abrasive works (even KJ themselves!), this one tops on a scale of quality and consistency.
