Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: Godflesh to Release First New Recording in Twelve Years Via the Decibel Flexi Series!!!
Before there were blogs there were these things called magazines, and the only metal magazine we still get excited about reading every month is Decibel. Here’s managing editor Andrew Bonazelli…
It’s breaking news time, messageboard warriors, so let’s cut right to the chase. Fucking Godflesh are back, and we’re the lucky bastards who are bringing you the first taste of new music in 12 years. One brand new song of, well, mostly hate is manifesting on black-on-white plastic, courtesy of the Decibel Flexi Series (which is on a Miggy Cabrera-style hot streak after those new Watain and Carcass jams, no?). The skullcrusher in question is a pummeling cover of Slaughter’s “F.O.D. (Fuck of Death).” No, not these puds [(sorry, I’m contractually obligated to write that—this song actually fucking rules). These dudes. Likewise a mid-’80s artifact, but just slightly more important in that Canada’s Slaughter were bona fide proto-death metal. Plus, who doesn’t like a good fuck of death? The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup—followed by a fuck of death.
If you want this killer new piece of history, subscribe to Decibel by 9 a.m. EST on September 3 to ensure its arrival. Current subscribers, ixnay on the panty-bunching—anyone who currently has an active subscription will receive the Godflesh disc. In the meantime, just to minimize that long-wait thumb-twiddling, if any of you guys know Paul Neville, put in a good word for us. We’d obviously love to do a Streetcleaner Hall of Fame, but he’s long been the missing link. Clickbait rising forever.
