Pandemonium is the ninth studio album by English rock band Killing Joke, released on 2 August 1994 by record label Butterfly. This album marked Killing Joke's return after a four-year-long hiatus, the longest the band had taken since it was initially founded. This album also featured the return of founding member Youth, who replaced Paul Raven on bass. The vocal tracks for "Pandemonium", "Exorcism" and "Millennium" were recorded in the King's Chamber of The Great Pyramid of Giza.
An expanded and remastered version of Killing Joke’s live album THE UNPERVERTED PANTOMIME, this CD/DVD collection presents the British post-punk in its raging early incarnation. Highlights include the pummeling tracks Wardance and Change, along with fierce rare tunes such as Malicious Boogie and You’re Being Followed. The video portion of the release features Killing Joke performing other classics (most notably The Wait and Requiem ) on a 1981 American tour.
Not sure if this is the original Unperverted Pantomime from MANY years back - (if Animal turns out to be the (better !) cover of Sex Pistol's Bodies then I'll know). IF it is then this is one of the best post Punk albums ever 2003 seems to be a busy year for the Joke, with a new album out in July. But to get us started, out came this release, full of jems from their early days.
