Godflesh - _Songs of Love and Hate_
by: Adam Wasylyk (
To start off, this isn't the average CD I listen to, but I did find myself enjoying this. Godflesh return with 11 songs of industrial metal that is very bass driven, which is what I love to hear on a record. Songs like "Wake", "Sterile Prophet", "Gift From Heaven", and "Kingdom Come" really drive the bass sound home and are very catchy to listen to. Accompanied with the strong music are painful lyrics from vocalist J.K. Broadrick, whose vocals I thought really stood out. Musically these guys very much reminded me of Misery Loves Company. The use of samples and the synths were also very well done, which I felt truly enhanced the music. Not much else to say, other than if Godflesh made a fan out of me, then I'm sure older fans will like it and perhaps others who haven't heard of Godflesh will dig it too. I look forward to seeing them on their North American tour.
