Post Killing Joke VS Paradise Lost?
Both English, both genre explorers and have even explored the same genres, both innovators (pioneers of doom metal, key influence on industrial rock) and have inspired many bands (check wiki) To me they have a lot in common even though theres 10 years between their debut albums but PL are only one album behind. Both have not been metal (no KJ in Encyclops yet they win one of the best METAL albums of 2015) and some dont call certain PL'bums metal yet they started of playing one of the most extreme genres.

Its probably a ridiculous thread but it makes sense to me! I thought of it comparing those Maiden/Priest albums and decided to do the same with KJ & PL as they have almost the same amount of albums. Then I realised they have a lot in common even though they are a decade apart.

Paradise Lost. The only Killing Joke song I liked was 'Millennium', I bought the album but was not impressed. I admit I don't know much else about them but it's fucking Paradise Lost!

By a great cold distance? Killing Joke did In Dub, PL had an EP called In Dub. KJ have done World Music, so has PL with Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra & Choir. Love Like Blood named themselves after a KJ song but influenced by PL (and covered both).

Well now, let's see.

One band is a perennially groundbreaking and frighteningly visceral juggernaut that will almost certainly, by the time of their (god forbid) demise, be considered a part of the British rock counterculture every bit as much as Hawkwind, Motorhead, The Fall, and so on.

The other is the drone of a fart, and this forum's equivalent of 'Birds Of A Feather' being on TV all the fucking time when I was a kid.

I'll leave you to work out which is which.

^ Good thinking! A cup of Yorkshire tea VS a Ladbroke Grove spliff! Both dodgy!

They came from completely different scenes though!

Artistically I'm giving it to KJ but I've spent more time listening to PL.

Is the Paradise Lost obsession a Euro thing? Because no one (bar maybe Statters) gives two hoots about them down here.

They have never been that popular here, even in their heyday. When they played in Aus a few years ago the turnout was poor apparently.

KJ. By a long way. I don't understand how you can compare them to PL, they're two completely different bands who don't sound like each other at all.

My dad likes Birds of A Feather!!!


Anyway the answer is Killing Joke. Because....well, they're Killing Joke.

Although to be honest I friggen hate the 21st century Joke - all the subtlety and cryptic nuances of old have been eradicated and replaced by thumping power chords and the kind of idiotic conspiracy theory lyrics that most of us grew out of around the time we got our driver's license and started shagging.

But still, yeah, Killing Joke.

Ironically, Killing Joke have a song called 'Birds Of A Feather'

PL are more popular in Europe. Europe, European Super State. I rest my case!
