* EpicInstrumentalOpener: Many songs, but the best is probably "Heart Ache" on the band's debut EP, which starts with a dark instrumental section that sounds a lot like Godflesh, before transitioning into a LighterAndSofter section more typical of the band, and then the vocal section. All in all, it takes about 12 minutes for the vocals to show up in the song.

Jesu is a British [[DoomMetal Drone Metal]] / {{Shoegazing}} band consisting of Justin K. Broadrick (also of IndustrialMetal band Music/{{Godflesh}} and formerly of Music/NapalmDeath), Diarmuid Dalton, and Ted Parsons.

The band is known for their lengthy, surprisingly soothing "metalgaze." Broadrick's lyrics are both personal and political, and somehow work for the genre. Shoegazing is known for being difficult in making a message in the music, seeing as vocals are usually not really worked with. Somehow Jesu succeeds in giving their music "something to say."
