The Fall Mansion
This Nation's Saving Grace Beggars Banquet 1985
Godflesh Nero N
Purge Avalanche 2023
Lead single to Godflesh's newest album, officially released tomorrow (6/9)! Been six years since we heard from Godflesh. According to the band, Purge "revisits and updates the concepts explored on Pure" released in 1992.
Swans Half Life
Cop / Young God Mute 2015
Opening cut from Swan's 1984 second studio LP. Then based out of NYC, Swans combined elements of industrial, noise, and No Wave to create a pummeling, dark sound on their early recordings. Early Swans was also an influence on Godflesh.
Black Flag Scream
My War SST Records 1984
Divisive second studio LP from Black Flag, particularly Side B which found the band diving head-first into sludge and away from the hardcore punk sound fans came to expect. The main riff on this cut dates back to 1982, as the band would play it on-stage between cuts when dealing with equipment. Ginn would revisit the riff and stretch it out to a complete song, heard here as the closing cut to My War.
