Free Sounds fer the Weekend - Godflesh!!!
Just goes to show just how out of touch me has been with extreme music is the fact that me wasn't even aware of the existence of a dub mix album of Godflesh's Songs of Love & Hate despite it being out there fer over a decade. (It was recently re-released as a two disc box set alongside the original long player).
Thanx to the joys of the Internet, me not only found out bout it but also got to download both albums. Those not familiar with Godflesh, just imagine one of those concrete steamrollers slowly grinding away & flattening the inner highways of yer cranium.
Slow, heavy, doom-laden sounds fer a wasted industrial age. Fer a traditionalist like who likes to see four-, six-strings & two sticks in band, me was pretty fooking blown away with what a couple of noiseniks could achieve with a drum machine. Of course, Godflesh went on to become an underground sensation paving the way fer the likes of Ministry, Pitchshifter & KMFDM.
So fer yer enjoyment this weekend, me presents to you a double download package. Both the original album & its dub companion.
