Jesu is a British [[DoomMetal Drone Metal]][=/=]{{Shoegazing}} band consisting of Justin K. Broadrick (formerly of IndustrialMetal band {{Godflesh}}), 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".

Their 3 albums and several [=EPs=] have gotten critical recognition matching shoegaze legends Music/MyBloodyValentine. To say that this band is epic is an understatement.

!!Jesu contains examples of the following tropes:
* EpicRocking: Many, many times.
* LighterAndSofter: They can basically be seen as {{Godflesh}} minus the harsher, darker elements.
* LyricalDissonance: Their lyrics are quite depressing despite how soothing their music sounds.
* PerishingAltRockVoice: Works surprisingly well against metal.
* SelfTitledAlbum: They have one.
* XMeetsY: Music/SunnO meets Music/MyBloodyValentine.
