about

Stagnation and musical complacency are components completely unknown to Jesu mastermind and sonic alchemist Justin Broadrick. From record to record, and sometimes even from song to song, visible transformation in the molecular make up of Jesu is made plain to any and all willing investigators. While the core personality remains perpetually intact, the outer trappings continue to shift and fluctuate, which results in renewed vigor and vitality for Jesu, rather than providing fractured evidence of a shaky identity. With this new five track EP (2 songs of which originally appeared on the vinyl-only split 12" with Eluvium), Broadrick has set aside the heavy foundation of pounding guitars prevalent in past Jesu recordings and brought to the fore elements of texture and melody that previously hovered at the periphery of his monolithic compositions. While this may prove frustrating to metal idealists, those with a greater sense of adventure will find the results both illuminating and heartrending.

Track Name: Farewell
I just can't be it
Leave me behind
I don't want to go with you
unless they go
but they won't
they're far too inwards to
and curse them
the situation's out of hand
but they know
there's no answer
I can't do what they all want you to do.
So now
we'll lose
everything we start to keep
for our lives
their hands
I don't see how they will change
for you
And your goodwill
they take what they can
for themselves
on its belief
and bid them a last farewell and
we'll show them
and we show them
