Godflesh Kicking Off 2014 U.S. Tour In New York

godflesh-justin

Godflesh, the darkly influential industrial metal band from England, will be touring in the United States in April 2014. Led by Justin Broadrick, Godflesh has produced starkly haunting and unforgettable industrial metal that has drawn praise from notoriously hard-to-please Glenn Danzig, who complimented Godflesh as actually being original. Justin Broadrick, who is the driving force behind Godflesh, was even asked to join Danzig and Faith No More, but turned down both offers to focus on Godflesh.

Godflesh broke up back in 2002, but has since reformed in 2010 to tour. They will be touring in April in New York on the east coast, and will eventually make their way back to the west coast with dates slated for Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon. Below is the track “Streetcleaner,” and once you hear the track you will never forget it.

GWAR Lead Singer Oderus Urungus Found Dead

Oderus-Urungus-Dead

In shocking news, lead singer of heavy metal mainstay band GWAR Oderus Urungus, has been found dead. Oderus Urungus was the very visible and well-known frontman of GWAR, and frequently did entertaining and over the top interviews. His real name is David Brockie, and he never failed to entertain and defend his brand of shocking, but humorous, brand of music and theatrics. He was found dead in his Richmond, Virginia home, and there is NO suspicion of foul play. Although I don’t want to speculate on his death, the history of musicians and early deaths has added another member. RIP Oderus Urungus.

Song of the Day “When All Is Said And Done” – Napalm Death

Napalm_Death

Blindness feeds the world to madness
Faith’s crumbling, there’s no doubt about it
Religion and science fighting a new kind of war

Helpless – wander the streets in desperation
Fearless – to the path they tread
Shameless – the powers that butcher
Ignorant to the deeds that they commit

When all is said and done
Heaven lies in my heart
No slave to beliefs that propagate pain
When all is said and done
Heaven lies in our hearts
This life is a gift to be lived and loved

Fracturing the structure of nature
Iconic catalysts to slaughter
A stalemate bursting bound by contradictions

Heartless – divine blueprints of hatred
Selfless – Diseased masterplans
Shameless – the powers that butcher
Ignorant to the deeds that they commit

Decoded treachery shielding the tyranny
Black Bible tyrants behind masks of righteousness
Relentless – the onslaught of misunderstanding
Descending into a unified chaos

One more chance for a shot at redemption
Lost within, can we summon the might?

Song of the Day “Lithium” by Nirvana

I’m so happy ’cause today
I’ve found my friends …
They’re in my head
I’m so ugly, but that’s okay, ’cause so are you …
We’ve broken our mirrors [Alt: We broke our mirrors]
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care …
And I’m not scared
Light my candles, in a daze
‘Cause I’ve found god

Yeah, yeah, yeah [6x]

I’m so lonely, but that’s okay, I shaved my head …
And I’m not sad
And just maybe I’m to blame for all I’ve heard …
But I’m not sure
I’m so excited, I can’t wait to meet you there …
But I don’t care
I’m so horny, but that’s okay …
My will is good

Yeah, yeah, yeah [6x]

[2x]
I like it – I’m not gonna crack
I miss you – I’m not gonna crack
I love you – I’m not gonna crack
I killed you – I’m not gonna crack

I’m so happy ’cause today
I’ve found my friends …
They’re in my head
I’m so ugly, but that’s okay, ’cause so are you …
We’ve broken our mirrors [Alt: We broke our mirrors]
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care …
And I’m not scared
Light my candles in a daze …
‘Cause I’ve found god

Yeah, yeah, yeah [6x]

[2x]
I like it – I’m not gonna crack
I miss you – I’m not gonna crack
I love you – I’m not gonna crack
I killed you – I’m not gonna crack
