OK, this man is easily one of my favourite musicians, multi instrumentalists (does that word exist?) and more importantly, one of my facourite musical visionaries.
He started a band called final when he was 13 (thirteen!). And its not some kind of childish thing: The band still exists today (i saw them live on monday and they kicked ass) and releases ambient/industrial music.
Moving on, when 15, he was the guitarist of napalm death and played the guitars for their first album "scum". That album can easily be credited as THE beginning of grindcore. And can also be credited for the invention of the blastbeat as we know it today.
Next up, godflesh. The founder/frontman was justin. Needless to say, the number of bands that it influenced: Everything from fear factory, to nine inch nails to isis.
After the demise of godflesh, he founded jesu. All of this, ignoring his involvement other projects/bands such as techno animal, head of david, pelican and a countless other bands.
I cant say this to any other person or band but i really like EVERYTHING that this man has released, which is why i opened this thread.
OK, fanboyism aside, is there anyone else who likes any of his bands/work?
