Entertainment Reviews:

Uncut - p.105
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]ime has only strengthened Jaz Coleman's resolve to pen music that sounds like your eardrum pressed against an industrial sander....[The tracks] motor along at land-speed-record velocity..."


Product Description:

Killing Joke: Jaz Coleman (vocals).
Personnel: Geordie Walker (guitar).
The studio follow-up to Killing Joke's fierce 2003 self-titled comeback album, HOSANNAS FROM THE BASEMENTS OF HELL finds the veteran U.K. industrial-rock ensemble returning to its early-1980s "primitive" sound, as clearly announced on the surging opener, "This Tribal Antidote," which showcases Geordie Walker's wire-tight guitar riffs. Although this record doesn't benefit from the rhythmic attack of Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), a guest on the aforementioned outing, drummer Ben Calvert proves to be a worthy successor, as revealed on the pummeling title track, which also shines the spotlight on frontman Jaz Coleman, who mixes guttural screams with moments of subtle melody. While HOSANNAS may not win the group many new converts, it boldly reinforces Killing Joke's apocalyptic vision and sheer sonic power.
