Godflesh – Decline and Fall EP
The be-all-end-all industrial metal pioneers are back after thirteen years of silence. (They’ve played reunion gigs intermittently, but cancelled both times I tried to see them.) Lumbering, bass-heavy riffs with pounding drum machine beats recall the first few albums, complete with the classic tambourine on the downbeat. The duo hasn't lost their gritty Brummie roots. Crank this loud! All tracks are kickass and FCC clean.
RIYL: Skinny Puppy, early Swans, golden age of Earache Records

1. (6:23) Lumbering, dissonant doomy riffs
2. (3:52) steady thudding, pummeling drums and chugging riffs, whiplash guaranteed
3. (6:02) almost catchy headnodding groove, dissonance trades off with thundering low riffs
4. (4:17) off-kilter syncopation, rabid and vicious riffage, gets almost to grindcore speeds by the end! NON-FCC ALERT: lyrics actually say “fork”
