On 13th November 1989, underground hardcore/death metal label Earache Records released the debut full-length album by a duo called Godflesh (20-year-old Justin Broadrick and his friend GC "Benny" Green). It wasn't a hit. However, those it did resonate with took it deep into their hearts and the album and band became cult favourites. Influential yet overlooked.
Twenty-five years later, to mark the anniversary of this momentous release, I gathered together friends and colleagues from both the Avalanchers message board and further afield to interpret songs from this legendary album in their own way, in tribute to its timelessness and power.

If you're a Justin Broadrick fan or possibly a huge fan of the album Pure you'd be silly to pass on this album. Feels like a blend of Godflesh, Jesu, and JK Flesh. Justin is a musical genius shinmegamitensei

Massive fan of all of JB's work from his very early Napalm Death days right through to his current work with Hospital Productions. This EP is one of his best Pale Sketcher releases & is pretty much on loop in my car & my house these days. All good, no filler, but the standout pieces are Air Tight and Roads Less Travelled. stevedt
