JESU / Heart Ache E.P (2004)
I had no idea prior to hearing Heart Ache that Justin K Broadrick's voice was so well suited to the kind of melodies offered here. Some unexpected piano punctuates and then supports the down-tuned guitars with lush softness, helping it achieve the near impossible: atmospheric, ambient drone that's typically hypnotic but also really quite beautiful.
