If you don’t follow Jesu too closely, it’s easy to get a bit confused by their output. Justin Broadrick’s presence is the only constant, with their releases swinging between ethereal puffs of minimalist misery and full-bore industrial metal. Their albums are for the disenfranchised Godflesh fans craving that trademark crush, with their EPs being where the ghosts of songs manifest themselves around gentle drum programming and breathy, barely-there murmurings. Everyday I Get Closer To The Light From Which I Came breaks that pattern by being a full-length ‘Jesu-gaze’ release.
