For over a decade, the metal world has had to endure without any new music from Godflesh, the industrial metal project of Justin Broadrick and G.C. Green. That all changed earlier this year, with the release of the Decline & Fall EP, the first new material from Godflesh in thirteen years. To say that it was an excellent listen would be a great understatement. Now we’re being given an even bigger present – a new full-length Godflesh album, entitled A World Lit Only by Fire, is scheduled to be released on October 7th. After thirteen years, a new Godflesh album is finally happening, and if that’s not reason to celebrate, then I don’t know what is.
The first new track from A World Lit Only by Fire, entitled “New Dark Ages”, was released earlier today on the band’s SoundCloud page. Listen to it right here and bask in the glory. The rest of the album is equal in quality, so be prepared to see Godflesh dominating Top 10 lists when the year is out.
