KILLING JOKE
HOSANNAS FROM THE BASEMENTS OF HELL
COOKING VINYL

England’s veritable metal machine Killing Joke has been in the game for over 25 years, and their experienced acumen is very much the driving force behind the nine-track HOSANNAS FROM THE BASEMENTS OF HELL. Progenitors of the industrial metal movement and undeniably one of the most influential bands you probably never full realized, songs like the Gothic electro-punk punch of “This Tribal Antidote” rivals Ministry and Sisters of Mercy, the mechanically pulsed “Walking With Gods” are hits both on the dancefloor and in the moshpit, and the spirit-esque vocals on top and atmospheric electronics underneath on “Gratitude” make for quite the cold, harsh hypnotic trip. Adorned with captivating artwork, a keen sense of composition, and a total disregard for the mainstream, Killing Joke always did things their way, and by doing so, continue to carve out a niche that no one else will ever come close to touching, If you’re disenchanted with the music industry, allow HOSANNAS FROM THE BASEMENTS OF HELL to reaffirm your faith that there still are warriors of the rock world releasing pertinent and utterly amazing records.
