Christmas comes early, drone-metal fans! Today, the fine folks at Robotic Empire are releasing CD and vinyl versions of Jesu’s Christmas EP (both in a one-time-only pressings of 500 warm cups of hot art-sludge chocolate). Jesu originally digitally released the frosty, sun-glinted, dreamy, nine-minute snowglobe dirge “Christmas” as a holiday treat in December 2010. The original EP included remixes by Jesu frontmam J.K. Broadrick’s electronic Pale Sketcher alias and dronecentric Final alias; and the new physical version appends a brand new exclusive fourth version from his doom-dub alias JK Flesh. Dude has more side projects than Santa’s got reindeer, real talk.
