Pick of the Day – August 26th: Killing Joke – Killing Joke

Killing Joke – Killing Joke

Something old today – listening to this hard today.  It’s really had to know exactly how many bands owe (at least some of) their sound to this band, and specifically this album.  I only recently found this album myself, maybe a year ago….but I find it unusually current in a lot of ways.  I go back to it when I listen to bands like Nirvana…and then bands I like now, i.e. Queens of the Stone Age, who probably listened to The Joke’s music and found some inspiration in the funk rock sound.  I do wish the vocals were recorded better, but shit that was like 30 years ago.  Recommended for metal heads, and people interested in the predecessors to bands like Metallica, Foo Fighters, Tool, and many others.  Still pretty dope.
