((Jesu)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

England's Justin K. Broadrick is the main visionary behind the dark drone-experimental psych-ROCK band Jesu. He also used to be the Godflesh guy (1990-2003), a pioneering industrial band that paved the way for better known acts like Ministry and Nine Inch Nails. His new band, Jesu, is a thunderous trio that perfectly executes dynamics in song. Their sound is an epic, layered journey through steady sonic build-ups that often leads to an explosion of distorted noise.

Speaking of noise, Hydra Head Records (Pelican, Isis) sure was right to sign these guys, as they fit perfectly with that label's sound. And Jesu definitely delivered the goods with the release of their self-titled full-length in 2005. It was on many critics "Best Of" lists and their follow-up EP in 2006 was even stronger. There's something both scary and sweet about the atmospheres these guys create. One thing is for sure, this rocks hard.
