Killing Joke, Czar
From England, post-punk band, on tour to support their 35th anniversary release "The Singles Collection 1979-2012" Heavy and slow, Killing Joke (at least early in their career) were a quasi-metal band dancing to a tune of doom and gloom. They eventually became less heavy and more arty (the latter seems almost impossible) -- more danceable even -- but early on they made some urgent slabs of molten dynamite that oozed with the power of thick guitars, thudding drums, and over the top singing.
Since the release of their acclaimed 2011 debut album Vertical Mass Grave, the members of CZAR have been busy playing shows, swinging east for a short tour. CZAR is back with a new album written and a handful of demos recorded in the hopes of finding a label to release their follow up to Vertical Mass Grave. The new tracks, recorded and produced by the band themselves, head in a more brutal and thought-provoking direction.
