As Killing Joke continue down the path, enlightening new listeners to their tribal antidote it is worth considering that they are the true fathers of industrial rock.
That alone is not enough to guarantee a good review and in comparison with the first and previous KJ albums this doesn't quite hit the mark, but I would take issue with some of the other reviews on show, the rhythm section is rumbling away in full swing and perhaps they have decided to hit a new furrow with a straight forward rock feel.
The chunky sound of Tribal Antidote is followed by the exceptional Hosannas and then into the Communion world of track 3. Imposion is stunning and crunching in its intensity, yes the production is muddy in places, but that doesn't mask the quality of songwriting.
KJ have represented an all important strand in my life as a band who have still carried on the punk ideals, who start trends rather than follow and who still thrill me every time a new release appears. Hosannas is no different.
I've shown my Gratitude in buying this record, I strongly suggest you do the same.
