Let’s just cut to the chase, people: Godflesh are back, and we’re bringing you their first new recording in 12 years!
Justin Broadrick’s seminal progressive industrial outfit has chosen the Decibel Flexi Series to relaunch. And they do so in a big way with a corrosive, crushing cover of Slaughter’s “F.O.D. (Fuck of Death).” Don’t worry: We’re not talking the glam metal posers, but Toronto’s proto-death metal heroes of the mid-’80s. In keeping with Godflesh’s stark and menacing aesthetic, “F.O.D.” arrives on black-on-white plastic. It will not appear on the Birmingham boys’ forthcoming new LP (!), which should arrive sometime in 2014.
Subscribe to Decibel by 9 a.m. EST on Tuesday, September 3 to ensure that you’ll receive this important new chapter in Godflesh’s vaunted history. Current subscribers will also receive this flexi disc.
