Incidentally, the only thing I've heard since Sabre Dance, the only thing I've ever come across that was similar, was the guy in the original Banshees on The Scream.
Apparently that guy had just learnt to play, and he came out with these chord structures that I found very refreshing. The guy's been ripped off so much, he started that flanged chord thing.

Kim: "When we started the band we were all listening to hardcore and new wave: The Minutemen, Meat Puppets, Hüsker Dü, Joy Division, Wire, Killing Joke, Bauhaus.
At that time, in Seattle, The Melvins were slowing down their music. Malfunkshun, Green River and Soundgarden, all the bands that had started playing fast, started to slow down.
This is, like, and everyone was sick of trying to be Minor Threat. The name Soundgarden "Not intentionally meant to throw people off", laughs Kim is supposed to represent the many roots of the group's style, a virtual plethora of cutting edge rock that spans Sabbath, Velvet Underground, Meat Puppets and Killing Joke.
There's some Zep and some Metallica; Gothicism and sublime poetry. The almost ethereal flavour of the name betrays the brutality of the music but never pins Soundgarden in one corner.
Metal Hammer. Q: What were your influences? Were you listening to a lot of new stuff, or going back to the old stuff?
A: Well as I've gotten older and a bit more jaded, I imagine, y'know [laughter] I've found myself, on this record, really getting back to some old records, rather than new stuff.
Y'know, I'm not saying that there aren't any new bands that I find interesting, but I was much closer, I was studying, say, [ Ministry: The Lost Gospels According To Al Jourgensen loan required.
Boston, MA: Da Capo Press. Just as we were debating who would play bass on the Rio Grande Blood , Raven from Killing Joke contacted Angie and asked if she knew anyone who needed a bassist.
I was a big Killing Joke fan for a long time, and Raven just happen to be e-mailing Angie right when I was thinking of doing a record.

When I First Saw Myself Reflected on Screen. Editorial Lists Related lists from IMDb editors. When she arrives and overpowers Franz, he makes her lose control and give him a savage beating, stopping just short of killing him.
Realizing Batman was right, she retires from crime-fighting. Later, Batman investigates a murder scene with Detective Harvey Bullock and concludes that the Joker , currently held at Arkham Asylum , might be behind the crime.
He goes to Arkham to talk to him, only to discover that he has escaped and put a decoy in his place. Joker then attacks Barbara and her father, Commissioner James Gordon.
He shoots her in the stomach, paralyzing her from the waist down, and takes Gordon to an abandoned amusement park. There, Joker strips him naked and subjects him to torture, including showing him photos he took of Barbara, naked and in pain.
The story is intercut with flashbacks of Joker's origin. It is revealed that he was once a lab technician who quit his job to become a stand-up comedian, only to fail miserably.
Desperate to support his pregnant wife Jeannie, he agrees to help two criminals rob his former workplace. The criminals tell him that he has to use the Red Hood 's mask and caped costume, secretly intending to frame him.
During the planning, the police inform him that Jeannie and their unborn child have died in a household accident.
Grief-stricken, he tries to withdraw from the plan, but the criminals strong-arm him into keeping his commitment to them.
At the plant, the criminals and the costumed comedian run into security personnel, and a shootout occurs. The criminals are gunned down and the comedian is confronted by Batman.
Terrified, the comedian trips and falls into the chemical plant's waste pond, and is swept through a pipe leading to the outside.
As he removes his mask, he sees the chemicals have permanently disfigured his face, giving him a clown-like appearance. His disfigurement, combined with the loss of his family, drives him insane and transforms him into the Joker.
In the present, Batman finds and saves Gordon, while the Joker flees. Despite his ordeal, Gordon remains sane and demands that Batman capture the Joker "by the book".
Batman follows the Joker as the latter tries to persuade him that the world is just one big joke and that "one bad day" is enough to drive an ordinary man insane.
Batman subdues Joker, tells him that Gordon has remained sane and concludes that Joker is alone in his madness. He then attempts to reach out to him, offering rehabilitation.
Joker apologetically declines, saying it is too late for him. He then says that the situation reminds him of a joke about two patients in an insane asylum who try to escape by leaping over to the adjoining building.
The first patient makes it across, but the second patient is afraid that he will fall. The first patient gets an idea and says, "Hey, I got this flashlight with me.
I'll just shine it across the gap between the buildings and you can walk across the beam and join me".
But the second patient says, "What do you think I am, crazy? You'll just turn it off when I'm halfway across!
Batman and Joker then have a good laugh at the joke as the police arrive. The Joker's laugh trails off while Batman continues to laugh, leaving the ending as ambiguous as the comic.
In a mid-credits scene, Barbara is in her wheelchair entering a secret room in her apartment. She says " back to work " as she turns on her computers, the Oracle icon appears on her screen.
In , during San Diego Comic-Con International , actor Mark Hamill , who wanted to quit playing the Joker at that time, stated that he would be willing to voice the Joker for an adaptation of The Killing Joke , encouraging fans to campaign for said adaptation,   most notably in a tweet on October 24, Sam Liu would direct and Timm would executive produce the film.
The film features a minute prologue that sets up the story. In January , Timm revealed that the film would be screened at San Diego Comic-Con in July.
He added that the team had to "add a lot more story" for the film due to the source novel not being long enough to make a feature-length film.
Animation and Warner Digital Series president Sam Register explaining, "From the start of production, we encouraged producer Bruce Timm and our team at Warner Bros.
Animation to remain faithful to the original story—regardless of the eventual MPAA rating CBR has an exclusive clip from "Batman: The Killing Joke" that features the Joker and Commissioner Gordon in a key confrontation.
The nationwide special screening event did exceptionally well in anticipation of the film's Blu-ray and DVD release next week. Timm discusses what the film says about Joker's sexuality, and its approach to the graphic novel's sexual violence.
Brian Azzarello and director Sam Liu reveal why the decision was made to take the iconic DC Comics characters' relationship into new territory.
Tara Strong, Ray Wise, Brian Azzarello and more introduced the film adaptation of "Batman: The Killing Joke" at San Diego Comic-Con.
A newly revealed scene from "The Killing Joke" depicts an unexpected romantic encounter between Batman and Batgirl.
Due to popular demand, "Batman: The Killing Joke" will now have a second night of theatrical showings. The film brings together three decades of archive footage with two decades of never before seen new documentary footage and unprecedented access to the members of Killing Joke, their management, music producers, industry figures and associates.
You get more or less what you would expect with two possible exceptions. Firstly, the members of the group profess an affinity with mysticism and the dark arts generally with many references to metaphysical events which they claim to have experienced and which permeate their music or at least that's what they say and if you could actually hear any of their lyrics, this may well be true.
Secondly, the "front man " is a remarkable individual called Jaz Coleman. A very intelligent and talented man but as is so often the case with such people,deeply flawed with self-confessed stays in psychiatric hospitals and narcotic addictions.
I was not particularly engaged when watching this film as I found the group members and attendant managers and disgruntled former managers to be by and large the sort of people I would very much wish to avoid.
I am sure that if you took any well known past or present rock band and put the members under a microscope, threw in some archive footage and vague reminiscences from people who claim to know or have known them, you would not see very much different than what is portrayed here.
I can't see that this film would appeal to anyone other than a die-hard Killing Joke fan and surprisingly there are plenty of them..
