Killing Joke – What’s This For…! (1981)

What’s This For…! is the weirder younger brother to the Killing Joke self-titled. And yes, whilst Geordie’s peircing guitar sounds rang out even in the opening moments of the debut, here they really come into their own, finding their own unique brand of maddening dissonance. It reminds me of Voivod in some regards, whilst of course also being completely different.

Admidettely there aren’t as many bangers here track wise (compared to the debut) but this is still an absolutely solid and incredible effort from a legendary band.
