Best New Music: POST SELF by Godflesh

 

Post Self is the eighteth album by Godflesh, the experimental project by Justin Broadrick  and G. C. Green, two artists who have achieved with their long and influential career the status of legends of industrial metal. After dismanting the duo in 2002, Broadrick and Green reunited in 2009 and produced since then two more albums under the moniker of Godflesh: the vigorous 2012’s A World Lit Only by Fire and, now, the beautiful follow up Post Self.

Post Self has been released on 17th November 2017 and contains 10 original tracks.

From a musical point of view the album manages to blend the immediate, brutal and inspired approach of the early years of the band with a sort of new electronic sensibility which in my opinion represents a definite improvement with respect to the previous works.

The fans of the band will find many citations and influences from the earlier works of this group. Those who approach only today with the music of Godflesh, be prepared to start a journey into the most punishing, depressive but beautiful industrial sounds you have ever heard in music.

The harsh intensity of Godflesh‘s sound is coupled with themes that deal with anxiety, depression, fear and mortality, as well as paternal and maternal relationships, which add a whole other layer to the album’s dark atmosphere. Even though Post Self isn’t exactly what was expected, it’s a masterful release from two musicians who seem to be incapable of creating anything short of exquisite (Exclaim)

Selected Songs: Post Self, Parasite, Be God.

The album can be streamed and acquired on bandcamp.

The albums is also available in Spotify:
