Product Notes

The first new long player from Godflesh since 2001's HYMNS which saw the band implode and then eventually split up following it's release. Since the band reformed in 2010 new material has slowly emerged. A WORLD LIT ONLY BY FIRE, like the DECLINE & FALL EP that came out in June, have been works in progress for almost 2 years. 'The music speaks entirely for itself, this is pure Godflesh, as the concept was originally intended; minimal, brutal, dissonant, driven by machines yet paradoxically dominated by organic and harsh down tuned guitars and bass, clean dub inflected vocals offset against harsh raging minimal shouts, and this is not to forget the worship of the omnipresent groove. Although the band could now be considered mature, and often with this maturity comes peace, this album has been perceived as the most aggressive and consistently fierce release in the band's career, something that the band are very proud of.' Themes of futile battles against the institutions that control our everyday lives, social conditioning, submitting and resigning oneself to the savage within, slavery and the abuse of power permeate and fuel these songs. GODFLESH is Justin K Broadrick's yin to Jesu's yang.
