Spawned in Birmingham in 1988 by Justin Broadrick (formerly the guitarist with Napalm Death) and bassist Christian Green - The simplicity of the line up characterised Godflesh’s infamous appeal, with the on-stage use of a drum machine and various collaborative contributions from musicians within the industry. ‘Songs Of Love And Hate’ shows the evolution in Godflesh’s sound with studio drummer ‘Bryan Mantia’ the album a more traditional heavy metal sound.
