GODFLESH stream “Post Self” title track

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 4:35 PM (PST)

Industrial metal colossus GODFLESH have streamed the title track to new record Post Self (due out Nov. 17th). Check the song out right here.

I am a lifelong fan of this band and have never criticized them, but this song sort of feels like a walk through. It didn’t light me up and make my hairs stand on end like the vast majority of their material, though I do like the 2:40 sort of more dissonant and thumpy ride out section a lot. This section kind of reminds me of Love and Hate in Dub a bit, which I have spent many hours very, very high absorbing and totally love.

While this song didn’t grab me as much as most of their stuff, it is Godflesh so you know the record will have many amazing components.

“Streetcleaner” returns to vinyl.

Available in two color options from the Earache Webstore.

These days it is harder to find original things. Most art and music has nostalgia so embedded in it that we recognize new songs with a familiarity that makes them more easy to market. That’s not always bad. American Horror Story: Hotel is a lot of fun, for example. Gaga is a hoot and even if every other scene recalls The ShiningThe Lost BoysSe7en or Devil In The White City‘s murder hotel, there is plenty of genre tribute, glam and gore.

That said, in life we only have so much time. I’m drawn the most to bands that sound unique, be it a human voice that is distinctive or something that doesn’t need signifiers because- like the Ramones, Motorhead or our main subject Godflesh, it can’t be fully replicated.

Streetcleaner is a template that turned the underground on its collective ear. Like Neubauten’s Kollaps, it was just such a huge game changer for possibilities, one of those rare records that becomes a landmark. The closest any other act has really come to Godflesh sonically might be recent Author & Punisher release Melk En Honing, to my ears – though they have many disciples. Still, Streetcleaner remains pretty untouchable. Even Godflesh themselves, who have many incredible releases to their credit, have rarely sounded as intense as during fan favorite “Like Rats”. The kick heavy punch of “Christbait Rising”, the harsh mantra of “Locust Furnace” or the rolling groove of underrated bonus track “Dead Head” soundtracked the cold alienation of many of the underground’s truest disciples at their most solitary.

In case you were having a nice day that feels nothing like licking the rust off a corrosive barrel while listening to super fucked up samples about someone strangling a woman to death or violent fantasies, don’t listen to the new super depressing and intense blackened industrial face fuck of a tune from Dragged Into Sunlight/Gnaw Their Tongues mutual collaboration disc “N.V”.

These are both bands whose names or artwork have repulsed people when I have mentioned them in recent years, so it is fitting that a collaboration between them would be really disturbing like a marathon of serial killer documentaries. It frankly makes you feel like a sick bastard for liking it, but the music is a next level nuclear bootprint to the squished guts of our lovely modern times.

Produced by Justin from fucking GODFLESH!!! and Tom Dring, it is the dark fruit of a long planned endeavor. CVLT Nation has the new tune “Visceral Repulsion” HERE and it is seriously freakin’ evil.  I already was having a radioactive steaming ear day due to Brad from Fad Nauseam turning me onto this sick ass band KVØID (who have a great James Plotkin mastered full length out that rocks kinda like Leviathan on a mechanized date with Batillus). This has really been a fan-fucking-tastic year for super harsh, darker industrial influenced extreme metal.

“N.V.” is available now for pre-order on CD or LP (including limited pressings in black, piss yellow and transparent milk w/ black splatter) via Prosthetic‘s webstore (http://store.prostheticrecords.com). Digital pre-orders will launch tomorrow on iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp, with “Visceral Repulsion” offered as an immediate download with purchase.

Carcass and Godflesh Peel Session available this week

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 at 6:25 AM (PST)

1000x1000

This coming Thursday at 2pm EST, the second release from the Earache Peel Sessions will be available to order from the Earache Webstore. Carcass get the A side and Godflesh the B side and since Peel was an important taste maker and it is an honor to be part of a Peel Session, you know both of these sessions deliver serious fuckin’ aggro goodness. Peel kinda helped Napalm Death gain more notoriety and helped showcase many bands John believed in over the years. And how gnarly is this art?!

As always, make sure you get there quickly if you’d like the most limited color from this vinyl release, as it will sell out quickly!

Deep Cuts: Godflesh

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 2:31 PM (PST)

Every Godflesh song is essentially a deep cut. There’s that pesky disclaimer again. Hey, people know “Christbait Rising” more than the b-sides from Pure, for example. So that warrants a column, in my book!!!

Click HERE and see what songs I am right about revering above numerous others in the band’s nearly inexhaustible potential songbook to choose from.

Godflesh begin writing new album

Posted by Metal Dude on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 3:43 PM (PST)

British industrial metal pioneers Godflesh have begun writing new material for their first album in over a decade. Band founder Justin Broadrick explained this to Decibel magazine:

“[The songwriting process is going] really, really slowly. I guess because I’ve had my son, it’s slowed things down a bit for us. I mean, [fellow Godflesh founding member] Ben Green got married last year and he still holds a very good job, so he’s very busy, we’re both very busy but we have a lot of ideas. Also, there’s no way we’d approach a new record just to milk the newfound popularity of Godflesh. I mean, it could take another year before we release something, and even the intitial impact of the reformation could have subsided by then, but that’s kind of meaningless, really; it’s just making another really good, cold and bleak record. And it’s more than in us, it’s in me, it still translates the same emotions that I’ve been struggling with all my life.”

Godlesh released their final studio album, Hymns, in 2001. After splitting up in 2002, the band got back together in 2009.

Posted by Tommy on Thursday, June 9, 2011 at 9:38 AM (PST)

British industrial metal pioneers Godflesh are back and are headlining their first show in London in 12 years!

The band is set to play the HMV Forum in London proper on June 16th. Band founder Justin Broadrick had this to say about the show,

“We are excited to be playing our first GODFLESH London headline show since 1999! In fact, the last time GODFLESH headlined London as originally intended – two men and machines – was around 1995. We hope our bleak sound and performance impacts like it did some years ago.”

Godlesh released their final studio album “Hymns” in 2001 prior to disbanding in 2002.
