Amoeba Review

10/29/2012

Goth and industrial pioneers Killing Joke may be on their 15th studio album and 34th year of existence, but they haven’t slowed down; in fact, they’ve released one of their finest albums to date with MMXII. From its outset, MMXII rocks fast and furious, making the most of Jaz Coleman’s cutting vocals and the instrumental chemistry of its founding members, all once again in the band, for the second album in a row after 2010’s Absolute Dissent. The mood is heavy in songs like “Colony Collapse,” whose industrial-electo touches help the song drill its riffs into you, while Coleman’s vocals soar overhead. The mellowed-out “In Cythera” is an absolute highlight in the band’s catalog, showing how powerful Killing Joke can be when they turn down and streamline their sound. It’s an album that should please longtime fans of the band, touching on many phases of their career, while sounding pretty current, as they’ve made an album stronger than that of many younger bands whom they’ve influenced, either directly or indirectly. 2012 probably won’t produce the apocalypse, but MMXII finds the band soundtracking our time as if it’s coming tomorrow.
