The Grey Wolves - "No New Jerusalem" (Zeal SS) 1986

Oh dear, here we go again! For those of us who don't know, Grey Wolf, was the code name for a certain Herr A. Hitler. We are again treading familiar Power Electronics ground with a plethora of references alluding to the Third Reich. Not so much Grey Wolf, as a Grey Area, concerning the ambiguous message involved with this genre. Are they Nazi Sympathisers, Ghoulish Obsessives, Nihilist shock rockers, or just provoking a reaction by confronting us with ourselves? Who gives a Fuck? Musically, you can also guess what they sound like. Ear piercing squealing electronic noise fuzz, processed unhinged vocals, and obscure tape recordings of probably someone with right wing connections(I did recognise the Reverend Jim Jones reciting his awe inspiring final speech from Jonestown, cropping up amongst the noise fog). This sounds like it was recorded in a indoor public swimming pool,every VU meter well in the red zone, with the band submerged in the deep end like a sinking U-boat dodging depth charges. Basically great stuff!  

Track Listing:

A1 The Tell Tale Heart
 A2 Golgotha Requiem
A3 Pagan Easter
A4 Gillick
A5 Pyrrhic Victory
A6 The Passover
B PA Recording Of First 3 Tracks Followed By Speech Tape Used At Back Of Hall

Yep, someone told me this before, and wasn't Jesus essentially a socialist?

Yep. Jesus was a commie. He confirmed it when I was piggyback at the beach one dark summer day. Right before he told me he loved me and it got weird.
