Published Dec 11, 2012Back in 2001, Exclaim! called industrial experimentalists Godflesh's Hymns LP their "most ambitious album yet," and now the Justin Broadrick-led crew are revisiting the collection with a two-disc deluxe reissue.
The End Records will issue the tweaked-up album on February 19, describing the record as a "challenging and inspirational slab of crushing industrial metal." The reissue will come on double-LP and double-CD, with both editions featuring a remastered version of the original album on one disc and a second platter containing demo recordings of album tracks and "If I Could Only Be What You Want" (previously delivered on the Loud Music for Loud People compilation in 2002). The reissue also comes with a booklet featuring liner notes and never-before-seen images of the band.
Hymns was the Godflesh's final LP in their original run before splitting in 2002, but the band got back together in 2009.
