'The Death and Resurrection Show' tells the incredible story of post-punk, gothic and industrial rock legend Killing Joke. The band, formed in 1978, is known for occultism, provocations, and visions about the apocalypse, but also for hypnotic rhythms, unholy guitar sounds of Geordie Walker and the manic expressiveness of the band’s mystic vocalist Jaz Coleman. “You have to remember that Killing Joke started as a ritual”. Killing Joke has always been an experimental group. The experiments haven’t only been restricted to music, as mysticism and occultism have always been a central part of the band. Especially the prophetic lead, Jaz Coleman, has claimed fame through his eccentric actions, such as taking off to Iceland to escape the end of the world just as the band was starting to make a name for themselves. Gigs spiked with psychological manipulation and recording an album at a tomb in the pyramids of Egypt are also within the range of normal for this band.
