Killing Joke has been citied as an influence by the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Slipknot and Tool. T
Pandemonium, one of the band’s biggest selling albums to date, was recorded and mixed during the spring, summer and autumn of 1994 in York Studios, New Zealand (which Coleman co-owns) and Youth’s Butterfly studios in Brixton, and saw Killing Joke returning after a 4 year hiatus with a new/old line-up. The album featured drumming by Geoff Dugmore (not a full-time band member) and vocal tracks recorded in the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid in Egypt. Fusing sheer intensity, alongside fierce power and inventiveness, Killing Joke enjoyed their greatest success as the song ""Millennium"" received major airplay on US radio stations.
Following the release of Pandemonium, Coleman retreated to Sedona, Arizona where the first seeds for Democracy were sown. The album features the immense Democracy, Prozac People a poetic statement of denial inspired by the 18 months Coleman spent on the drug while being treated for depression and Aeon, an eight minute, hypnotic adrenalin borne gale of chorded guitars.
