Killing Joke are a band from England that has a very long history and are one of the originators of industrial metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "MMXII" which was released by Spinefarm Records.
Drums range from slow,mid paced, to fast playing with no fast drumming being present on this recording, while the programming brings in elements of industrial to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark toe with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine industrial, metal and dark alternative together to create a sound of their with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals range from c lean singing to harsh sounding industrial vocals, while the lyrics cover political and metaphysical themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Killing Joke and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fema Camp" "Corporate Elect" "Glitch" and "On All Hallow's Eve". RECOMMENDED BUY.
