Jesu is an experimental rock band formed in 2003 by Justin Broadrick following the breakup of Godflesh. Jesu was the name of the last song on the final Godflesh release, Hymns, and Broadrick decided to adopt it as the name of his new project. Justin Broadrick is also an ex-member of Napalm Death, the famous grindcore/ death metal band. Also he worked with Kevin Martin (the brain of The Bug) on the projects God, Ice and Techno Animal.
Jesu’s sound is heavily layered and textured, drawing from and incorporating an eclectic mix of influences, ranging from ambient music, post-metal and drone doom, to shoegazing, downtempo and industrial music. Their recent releases have been described as “avant-pop” and avant-garde doom.
The members of Jesu are: Justin K Broadrick, Diarmuid Dalton, Ted Parsons and Dave Cochrane.
