Death In June

Death In June

Profile:
Death In June arose in June 1980 from the ashes of classic '77 British punk band Crisis. Guitar player Douglas Pearce and bassist Tony Wakeford were joined by drummer Patrick Leagas.

Douglas P. is the solo member of Death In June since 1985.

Their music started in the postpunk area and later evolved towards a mixture of acoustic ballads and synth-wave music. Death In June are often credited as the forefathers of the so called "apocalyptic folk" or "neofolk" genre.

One of the Neofolk's most prominent exponents, celebrating romanticism and the apocalypse on equal terms, Death in June produced some of the most confrontational and uncompromising music, mixing symbolic menace with sexual, political and the occult leaving little choice to classic listeners that usually find this kind of music repulsive, offensive or at its easiest - thought provoking.

From their early Joy Division-flavoured post-punk statements veering towards military fashions, often explicitely delivered by Douglas P. as the project's only constant (evocative of his unusual masked appearance), DIJ tried out also in electronic dance and acoustic ballads that dominated their mid-80s period highlighted with albums like 'Nada' and especially 'The World That Summer', considered by many as the group's finest work - of course several dozen of albums later, Death In June still continue proving their artistic strengths, although drowning themselves in endless (read: tiresome) apocalypse preaching of 'Europe', pulling inspiration from controversial subjects among which fascist and nazi flirting gained them much condemnation from conventional music sources that don't scratch beneath the surface.
