Published Sep 29, 2014Next week, Justin K. Broadrick will fully resurrect his beloved industrial metal act Godflesh with the release of A World Lit Only by Fire, the duo's first new album in 13 years. Your patience has been rewarded, as you can now stream the LP in full.
A press release promises that the album explores the divide "between high definition clarity and raw, visceral heaviness, inducing a meditative state via seething minimalism that hinges on ritualistic riff repetition and the tenuous membrane between anxiety-inducing dissonance and cathartic minor key melody."
The album is said to draw on influences from both Broadrick and GC Green's other projects, though it's still very much a Godflesh record.
