The debut and best album from Killing Joke from 1980. It is a dark, obsessive and dangerous album. The band backed its occult-inspired, apocalyptic message with tribal drums, rubber funk bass…and droning guitars. Years later it still sounds inspirational and deranged.
‘Killing Joke’ – the classic debut album featuring such key tracks as ‘Requiem’, ‘Wardance’ & ‘The Wait’ (covered by Metallica in 1987).
The gatefold artwork has been lovingly recreated by original designer Mike Coles, the sole addition being a striking silver pantone on the sleeve.
