Would you call that in any way heavy metal?

Some of their stuff is a bit heavy metal I guess. Im not so keen on their really heavy stuff. Jaz has got a great voice when he actually sings!

He has sung more on the later albums , I think in particular it was Hosanna's he screamed on most of the time . The music on that was pretty intense but I didn't see the need to scream on every song . Not sure I'd say they were heavy metal at times , possibly the description is more industrial ......a band a bit like KJ and Motorhead combined is Amebix - I quite like them , but it all seems like a bit of progression of hard core punk which I liked usually . Amebix - try Arise , that's bloody good .
All quiet ..........

Ok thanks John I might give them a listen. I've never really listened to Motorhead either so might give them a try as well. Going back to Jaz Coleman, his singing style went downhill imo from the Pandemonium album onwards but he has much sounded better in the last 3 albums. I'm really looking forward to the next album.

Just seen a pic of Jet on F*c*b**k with that newish Killing Joke book, I didn’t know Jet was a fan of Killing Joke!?
Thought Jet might be more into Acker Bilk?
:grin:

Anyone heard of Pulphea? He's done some covers of some tracks from BTATS and it's pretty good! Just discovered it! 😊

I think this lot are featuring in Vive Le Rock soon. Does that mean their new album is coming out soon? Does anyone know anything about this?

Cheers Jet. I thought there was supposed to be a new album this year though? Maybe the virus has delayed it.
