Brighter Than a Thousand Suns is the sixth studio album by English rock band Killing Joke. The majority of the album was recorded in Berlin during October 1985 with returning producer Chris Kimsey. The track "Victory" was recorded months later in Spring 1986, along with "Ecstasy" (the B-side to the Adorations single release), produced by Stewart Levine. The last track to be produced was "A Southern Sky" in August 1986, produced by Chris Tsangarides.

Brighter than a Thousand Suns (album). The entire cover: because the image is cover art, a form of product packaging, the entire image is needed to identify the product, properly convey the meaning and branding intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable as artwork on pirate versions or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original artwork.

In 1986 Killing Joke released their sixth album Brighter Than A Thousand Suns, hot off the heals of the mainstream attention grabbing Night Time. The new album had a polarizing effect on the fans, alienating many with its synth pop tendencies and conventional song writing. Gone were the monolithic harsh riffs, acerbic vocals and trance-inducing tribal drums: Brighter Than A Thousand Suns had a sound propelled forward by prominent keyboards and controlled, clean singing by Jaz Coleman. Recently, the band decided to re-release this wildcard of an album, but wait - there is a catch.

Brighter Than a Thousand Suns is a non-metal music album recording by KILLING JOKE released in 1986 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. Ultimately this album was the breaking point for Killing Joke, but it turned out to be for the better considering the cult following that they managed to achieve in the following years! star songs: Sanity (4:15) Chessboards (5:47) A Southern Sky (4:39) Rubicon (6:35). star songs: Adorations (4:28) Twilight Of The Mortal (4:14) Love Of The Masses (6:07) Victory (3:57) Wintergardens (5:32) Goodbye To The Village (5:18) Exile (6:27).
