Why change a winning formula? Due to the outstanding success of our
first tribute to Trent Reznor and co., here's a second helping!
Featured are the best up and coming industrial bands paying their
respects to the "high-tech, raw edged aural assaults" that have become
synonymous with the "Nails". The Nine Inch Nails story remains one of
modern rock's most inexplicably alluring with front man Reznor
creating a legend of almost impenetrable mystique around himself and
In the early part of the 80s, Killing Joke singer Jaz Coleman became
obsessed with the occult and felt the world was coming to an end. He
figured what better place than to spend the apocalypse than Iceland
and vanished to that island for awhile. After some time had passed, it
became evident the world was in fact still spinning and Coleman and
the rest of the gang reemerged in 1985 with one of their best LPs,
Still featuring the band's signature danceable armageddon soundtrack
music, the eight songs on Night Time rank among some of the best for
the band. "Love Like Blood" and "Eighties" are both notable for
different reasons. "Love Like Blood" may be one of the band's best
singles of their entire career and is the one track I'd suggest a new
listener find if interested. "Eighties" is better known for having a
very familiar guitar riff that Nirvana would "borrow" for "Come As You
Are" six years later. The rest of the albums stands up very well. With
guitarist Geordie providing razor sharp and gripping licks over the
mildly danceable rhythms with slight hints of keyboards behind it all,
Jaz Coleman is provided a solid base for his ranting. However, he does
offer some good vocals throughout Night Time, hinting at paranoia and
anger. But most importantly, the songs are all a bit catchy, despite
the prevelant darkness that seeps through the album.
Strange career detours and lesser albums notwithstanding, Killing Joke
has a few good moments under their belt and Night Time happens to be
one of them.
