WHO ARE THEY? The latter is the fire-breathing frontman of post-punk legends Killing Joke; the former is an Italian instrumental industrial duo who met Coleman’s high standards when they opened for his band in Rome.
WHAT IS THIS? A three-track EP that delivers more power, propulsion and dark beauty in 18 minutes than some bands do in a lifetime.
WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE? Well, Killing Joke, natch. But between the band’s pummelling grind and Coleman’s bombastic bellow, Ministry and Rammstein fans won’t be too disappointed either.
WHAT WOULD BE A BETTER TITLE FOR THIS ALBUM? Cerberus.
HOW SHOULD I LISTEN TO IT? As loud as you can, while sitting in the dark with a strobe light six inches in front of your face.
WHAT 10 WORDS DESCRIBE IT? Pounding, ferocious, unstoppable, massive, majestic, extreme, monstrous, cathartic, oppressive, punishing.
WHAT ARE THE BEST SONGS? With just three tracks, there’s not a lot of room for filler. But the bookends rock slightly harder than the middle cut.
WHAT WILL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY SAY? ‘You’re scaring me.’
HOW OFTEN WILL I LISTEN TO THIS? Well, it’s been four years since the last Killing Joke album. So fans have been waiting a while for a Jaz fix.
IF THIS ALBUM WERE A BALL, WHAT KIND OF BALL WOULD IT BE? A wrecking ball. A big one. In full devastating swing.
SHOULD I BUY, STREAM OR STEAL? Coleman always gives you plenty of bang for your buck.
