Xynobis? Crush my soul? Mothra? Like Rats? Love is a dog from hell? veins? The beginning of Weak Flesh is possibly my favourite 20 seconds of music ever.
Mothra is damn fine!!
Brilliant, brilliant track. The first album (Godflesh) is amazing (in an proto-industrial kinda way), as is the first album proper (Streetcleaner). Get one of them next.
if you like JK Broadrick's hiphop tendencies(techno animal etc).
Pure's the 'one'.
But you've gotta admire someome who leaves Napalm Death when he's 17 because he's bored of them!
are GREAT. Try and track down their first Peel session (think they only did one?). They were an important band in many ways - they were a rare UK signing for Blast First, which says alot.
but I've always preferred Jesu to Godflesh.
I see Jesu as the continuation of Godflesh.
But then I also see Final and Techno Animal as the continuation of Godflesh.
Justin Broadrick is pretty much my musical hero.
parts of 'songs of love and hate'. Some of the melodies in that are incredible.
And xynobis is still the most beautiful/ugly thing he's ever done.
heard Halo on relapse records? They seem to have taken the godflesh blueprint and made it even harder and more evil without sounding shite.
very good stuff.
I shall investigate. Thanks!
can't get into jesu the way i can with this band
I prefer Jesu to Godflesh too, but would definitely not be prepare to debate it. Pure is such an intense listen, i barely ever play it but can accept its genius 100%.
Anyone heard Jesu's 'Conqueror' yet?
