Jesu finds ex-Godflesh mastermind Justin Broadrick getting reacquainted with his inner guitar hero, with chest-caving help from drummer Ted Parsons (Swans, Prong). Akin to bands like Isis and Pelican, Jesu rumbles and bristles into the new wave of heavy guitar fog generators, swirling metal, shoegazer and grunge tonalities into pulverizing shitstorms of sound. Nevertheless, Jesu is Broadrick‘s most melodic project yet. His songs stive for ascension and redemption, but they‘re burdened by woebegone.
