Amoeba Review

Brian G, Hollywood 02/06/2013

Welsh post-metal drone-doom band Jesu, lead by musician/producer Justin K. Broadrick, released the holiday-themed Christmas EP digitally back in December 2010. The EP finally found a CD release this past December, and regardless of its title's implication of jolly yuletide singalongs, that's not at all what you get with Jesu. Perhaps a more inclusive title like "December" or even "Winter" would've been more befitting. "Christmas" is 9 minutes of dense, eardrum-exploding shoegaze-metal that's in the same vein as "Losing Streak" from Jesu's 2009 EP Opiate Sun. Broadrick buries his vocals in waves of thrashing noise, and explores his post-Jesu musical interests with his alternate aliases on the B-sides: a throbbing remix by JK Flesh that's almost trip-hop; a gentler remix under Broadrick's Pale Sketcher guise that enhances the acoustic elements of the song; and JKB's remix under his Final moniker that's nearly 15 minutes of trembling, pure ambient drone, and the most serene moment on the EP. Further enhanced by a beautiful photo on the cover, Christmas is a nice way to wind down the holiday season.
