Godflesh - Decline and Fall

Godflesh releases their first album since 2001 with, Decline and Fall.

A crisp, in your face, and well mixed EP. Godflesh packs lots of punch with various old-school rock, metal, and punk tendencies that culminate into a dark, futuristic, and industrialized aesthetic on Decline and Fall. This album is a refreshing take on alternative rock music with more traditional and less experimental song structures, giving perhaps a glimpse at the possible revival of genuine "popular" alternative music as well as Godflesh's upcoming full length due in September.
