Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: Stream Godflesh’s Cover of Slaughter’s “F.O.D. (F*ck of Death)”!
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…
Justin Broadrick remains The Man. Birmingham’s own is unveiling a new Jesu full-length next week, but the holy-shit news is that Godflesh full-length looming sometime in 2014. Both Decibel and MetalSucks are all over this massively-anticipated, long overdue comeback. We were honored to have the legendary industrial juggernaut grace the November issue’s flexi disc, covering (the not-shitty, Canadian) Slaughter’s “F.O.D. (Fuck of Death),” and just yesterday, MS ran an extended Q&A with Justin, in which the extreme iconoclast talks about the inspiration behind choosing Slaughter for the flexi, amongst many other things.
We all love this music, which means we’re all inherently cynical bastards, so shocker: after all that good news, we’ve got a little shit to sprinkle on your Corn Flakes. Allof the flexis were damaged by our printer during the insertion process (huh-huh). This is the first time this has happened in the three years we’ve done the series, but we’re busting ass to make things right. All subscribers will receive replacement copies of the flexi in a mailing in the coming weeks.
That said, if you CAN NOT FUCKING WAIT another second to own the first new Godflesh recording in 12 years on vinyl, there are an extremely limited number of copies of the issue in the webstore. These will be mailed with an extra, undamaged, totally playable copy of the flexi disc. So, snap it up, and in the interim, press play to get your Fuck of Death on right here.
The November 2013 issue of Decibel also features In Solitude, Morbid Angel, and Skeletonwitch. You can purchase it here. But why not just get a full subscription to ensure that you never miss an issue?
