“Killing Joke have influenced many later bands, such as Nirvana, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Napalm Death, Amebix, Big Black, Tool, Prong, Metallica, Primus, Jane’s Addiction, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters, Faith No More, and Korn, all of whom have at some point cited some debt of gratitude to Killing Joke.”
“By 1982, members of Killing Joke, especially Coleman, had become immersed in the occult, particularly the works of occultist Aleister Crowley. In February of that year, Coleman, with Geordie and Youth following shortly after, moved to Iceland to survive the Apocalypse, which Coleman predicted was coming soon.”
After that they sucked.
