Godflesh (1988-2002) - Mission is Terminated

"On April 10th 2002, I disbanded Godflesh. This was something I had painfully been pondering since GC Greens' departure from the band in Oct 2001. Regrettably it took until the day of leaving for a lengthy U.S tour for the realization to finally take its toll on me.

"Unfortunately the finality of the decision and the responsibilities of making the decision proved too much for me to bare, and I collapsed under the weight. I found that without GC Green, Godflesh is not Godflesh, and him leaving proved to be an omen for me. I also feel that everything we originally intended or even imagined with Godflesh we have done....

"JUSTIN K BROADRICK / MAY 2002"

Before Greymachine, J2 or Jesu, there was Godflesh, the highly influential industrial metal juggernaut featuring Justin Broadrick in one of his first post-Napalm Death roles (check out our interview with Justin HERE). Godflesh has announced that they will reform for a single European performance at Hellfest in France on June 18-20, 2010.

Nice. I was a fan way back in the day, so here's to hoping the band comes to New York!

I'd say it's a one-off for a big fat paycheck that'll help pay for all the rest of the music he's in the process of making.

Wish I could be there.

I had Godflesh's first three CD's when they came out and listened to them constantly especially Pure. Justin's a smart guy.
