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?

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