The last official Godflesh release, though not the last recording. I say this because for reasons unknown to me this sat on the shelf for almost ten years before finally getting released by the nice folks at Relapse. Random tangent: Is Virgin trying to break this record by not releasing Satyricon ? Volcano in the states even...

The most polished outpouring in some years from this highly overlooked British band of all things heavy. Sometimes loved, sometimes hated, often imitated, Godflesh brings to the world Hymns, an inquantifiable collection of slow churning, chugging ecstacy that will crush your body into oblivion while dissolving your spirit into the aether. Never content to stick to a formula and not for...

Here I am taking my first crack at the world of DVD reviewing, although it's basicaly the same as reviewing a CD, except you need to keep the eyes involved too, otherwise you're no bloody good at all, now are you? This is a very short DVD, clocking in at just under 25 minutes. It contains only the four promotional...

Ok, this review is not as long as appears, because the first CD is a best of Godflesh, up to "Us and Them." So, I am only going to discuss the choice of songs for the first disc. When I say "discuss," of course, I mean, "rant at length." First of all, there is only one track from the first...

Ever since I started listening to metal, Godflesh has been something of an enigma to me. I never quite understood the appeal of electronica infused in a metal framework. The music was interesting, but it was difficult to absorb due to its overall simplicity. On the band's most recent album, Us and Them, the band further pushes...

Here we have the follow-up to one of my favorite albums ever, "Songs of Love and Hate." This album fits in the same category that "Selfless" does to a degree, namely it is a much better album than I remember. Unlike "Selfless," there are a few down moments on here that aren't remix related. The biggest of these moments to...

As I am sure you have noticed by the fact that I have reviewed all of the Godflesh catalog except Hymns, as it was done before I got the idea to do this, I am a big Godflesh fan. This is what makes this review all the more painful to do. For reasons I personally do not understand, Godflesh decided...

Yep, another Godflesh review from yours truly. What surprises do they have in store on this album? First of all we have the first time Godflesh used a live drummer as well as a machine. It was a good move too, as I think they had done all they could with just the machine. As much...

Did you ever hear an album that you don't think is that great and discover that it in fact rules the world at a much later date? I have, it is Selfless by Godflesh. I remember listening to this when it came out and all I thought is; it's a rehash of Pure. This isn't to say...

This is actually the Merciless that came with the re-release of Selfless, (I know the idea of an Earache re-release might shock you but stay with me here). This means it comes with two alleged bonus tracks. I say this because they are remixes of Crush My Soul and Xynobis from Selfless. If you are reading these...

Godflesh were at an interesting crossroads in the early 90's. Their last two albums could not have been anymore disparate. Streetcleaner was an odyssey into dirge and destruction while Slavestate was bordered on club music, though not without a touch of nastiness just to remind you whom you were dealing with. However now...

This EP was the follow up to the "Pure" album, though it is techically two songs and two remixes, and not four songs, so this review will end up being rather brief. The two songs in question are rather different in style. The first song,"Cold World," is kind of in the same vein as "Slateman," though not nearly as powerful....

This is one of the great musical mysteries of all a time. How did this album come out after Streetcleaner? Do not think I'm dismissing this as bad, just a strange follow-up. This was almost akin to Slayer trying to follow up on Reign In Blood by adding Prodigy to the band. ...

This album should have been called Earcleaner, because if you had anything in there, it got blasted out. I've had this one in heavy rotation for well over a decade now and with good reason, this is the Reign in Blood of industrial sludge metal, and I do NOT use Slayer comparisons lightly. ...

Right now you are reading a review of the first Godflesh album, it also happens to be the first industrial metal album I ever heard, so this is more of a fond recollection than a review. The first time I heard this was after a friend, who I later found out just wanted me to hear them, recommeneded this to...
