Interview with Drugmetal, Moscow, 2013
Moving on from their early days of creating harsh, dark sounds in the vein of bands like Paradise Lost and Killing Joke, they soon found a platform of incessantly rolling, churning repetitive riffs creating a relentlessness, a sense of inevitable extinction.
A feeling that definitely manifests itself throughout Selfless, which remains a ruthless auditory onslaught to this day.

Crush My Soul – Official video
In my view, the album is ”centered” around last track Go Spread Your Wings (which is not to be found on any of the vinyl releases of the album – which is in a sense a pity, since it stands so central as a final swansong for the album) – part experimenting drone, part relentless apocalyptic post-punk, with its sense of final downfall – the lyrics line “I’ll never escape” delivered with a finality that’s downright excruciating.
So, if you dare, allow yourself to be sucked into the selfless portrayal of Godflesh when they play the 013 on April 20 as part of Jacob Bannon’s curation. Beware, though. You might never escape.
