''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."

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:

* ChristmasEpisode: They have a Christmas ''EP''.
* DreamTeam: They released a collaboration album with the folk rock band Sun Kil Moon, with Jesu providing the music and Sun Kil Moon providing all the vocals. Most agreed it turned out pretty well.
* EpicRocking: Many, many times. Most of their songs are over 7 minutes long, with a few surpassing 15 minutes, and the one song ''Infinity'' EP being 40 minutes in total.
* IAmTheBand: Justin Broadrick is the only constant member of Jesu as well as the sole composer of the band, with various other members providing instrumentation either live or in the studio.
* LighterAndSofter: They can basically be seen as Music/{{Godflesh}} minus the harsher, darker elements.
* LimitedLyricsSong: Most of their songs will just repeat a couple lines of lyrics over and over for the duration.
* 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.
