"Requiem" as written by Bradley Baker, Thomas Cohen, Sam Kilcoyne, Melissa Rigby, Huw Webb and Jolyon Vaughan Thomas....
Man watching video
The clock keeps on ticking
He doesn't know why
He's just cattle for slaughter

The, requiem

When the meaningful words
When they cease to function
When there's nothing to say
When will it start bothering you?

The, requiem

Only a hint of religion
Uncensors to its false depravity
The sound of breaking glass
This is a reflection

The, requiem

    General CommentApocalyptic stuff. Reminds me a bit of the BBC Drama "Threads" (the most disturbing thing ever made, some say) - this was earlier, mind you.

    Considering this album came out as Britain went into particularly dark times (Thatcherism just around the corner) its quite paranoid and sounds like everything has broken down.

    General CommentI'm from 1968, 'grew up' in eighties, but somehow missed Killing Joke. Now I'm catching up and say Requime is strong song. Powerful, indeed apocalyptic (thx DrLorenzo), an introduction to metal music, especially Requime - what's something like salute to soul of deceased person (or persons).

    (By the way, if you got nothing else to do, google Jaz Coleman, frontman of Killin Joke. Interesting guy!)
