Jesu are a British post-metal band formed in 2003 by Justin Broadrick. The band are known for their dense and layered sound, influenced by ambient, drone-doom, shoegaze, downtempo and industrial music. Jesu rose from the ashes of Godflesh. Their debut came in 2004, with the EP “Heart Ache” - on which Broadrick played all the instruments and sang on all the tracks. That same year, they released their first album, with Diarmuid Dalton on bass and Ted Parsons on drums.
With the EP “Silver”, released in 2006, the Jesu sound became more melodic - which led to people comparing them to bands like My Bloody Valentine. In 2007, the band released two albums – one of which was the masterpiece “Conqueror” - and two EPs, alongside a collaborative LP with American musician Eluvium. Jesu have also released works with the Japanese band Envy and the American band Battle Of Mice. In 2011 they released their seventh album, “Ascension”.
