Jesu

Jesu is another musical project spearheaded by Birmingham-based musician and producer Justin Broadrick -- a fixture of England's extreme music scene since his membership in the earliest recording lineup of Napalm Death in the mid-'80s. Also an occasional member of several other bands (Head of David, Techno Animal, etc.), he is probably best known for his decade-plus leadership of pioneering industrial ensemble Godflesh. Finally having officially laid that hallowed institution to rest following a reported nervous breakdown in 2002, Broadrick turned his attention to a new entity, Jesu, which he named after the last song on Godflesh's swan song, Hymns. Essentially a solo project with Broadrick handling vocals, guitars, bass, and programming, Jesu's 2004 debut EP, Heart Ache, consisted of two 20-minute-long meditations melding uncompromising sonic textures with seemingly abstract musings and a few hard-won melodic rewards.

But with the next year's eponymous full-length release, former Godflesh associate drummer Ted Parsons (also ex-Prong, Swans, etc.) and bassist Diarmuid Dalton were called in to help flesh out a more evenly paced, and certainly more focused (though only slightly shorter, at ten minutes average per piece), set of ambient, droning, and semi-industrial extrapolations. Jesu, the album, received almost unqualified critical acclaim across the world, and encouraged Broadrick to move ahead with his new endeavor, resulting in another form-challenging EP in 2006's Silver. At the end of the year Broadrick was performing with Sunn 0))) on a tour of the U.K. while Jesu's next album was leaking across the Internet. Early in 2007, Conqueror was officially released. A U.S. tour with Isis was supposed to coincide with the release, but work permits were not cleared in time and Jesu was not allowed entry into the country as the tour began.

Pale Sketches, a compilation of stray material that didn't fit on any of the prior Jesu releases, was issued that October. A pair of split recordings came in 2008: one with Envy, and another with Battle of Mice. Toward the end of 2009, Jesu issued the Opiate Sun EP, on which Broadrick performed all instruments and vocals without assistance. Infinity, a nearly 50-minute, suite-like composition that featured Broadrick on all instruments including live drums, also arrived in 2009. The following year, Broadrick unveiled his Pale Sketcher alias; he remixed each Pale Sketches track and issued the results as Jesu: Pale Sketches Demixed on Ghostly International. Later in the year, Heart Ache was reissued and combined with Dethroned (previously unreleased material dating back to 2003). Broadrick's Jesu re-emerged in 2011 with the more conventional, songlike Ascension on Caldo Verde. Broadrick went deeper and darker on 2013's Everyday I Get Closer to the Light from Which I Came, a five-track album that indulged not just his melodic art metal, but also the influences of dub, post-punk, and electronic music. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

What is your place in the world? And how much longer do you think you will have to figure it out? Try to make sense of it all, the chaos, the confusion, organized chaos. .. Innocent amid horror. Just a footnote in this eternal story that has no endings or no meaning or no explanation to anything you want to know. You will never know how long till the other place is going to be there. So get ready for infinite madness.

that transition in Lifeline where they come off of the chorus back into the verse may be one of the best things that I've ever heard...

What do you do when none of the answers anyone gives makes sense and it seems like the only answer is that nothing makes sense and never will, the world's eroding around you and you don't know if it's in your head and all the people screaming in agony around you might be experiencing the same hallucinatio n you are or if you're simply experiencing the symptoms of getting old or if this really is just one gigantic ball of random nonsense flying around you at incredible speeds?

A really beautiful sounding band, really amazing in it's simplicity. Nothing really can compare to how amazing this band is. Truly amazing, I'm really nothing more than a blabbering idiot when it comes to Jesu.

The first listen is really hard from him but niiiice when you have looked inside to see what is truly there. I really like the meditative work he has done. "Friends are Evil" is a good song and what I kinda feel shows what he is about in a way (also listening to it right now so maybe a little bit of bias). Mellow out

I stumbled upon this when trying to build a guitar laden Industrial channel - which is really hard to do without polluting it with Rammstein and Filter - and it's absolutely fantastic. He can soundtrack my life anytime he wants.

I like wondering how his life must have evolved much as his music, when you consider godflesh. Stunnning.

Yeah. What she just said.

Wow...really haven't heard anything quite like them before. And, their more recent stuff/sound is entering shoegaze-y territory, which is completely great.
