DrugMetal.ru conducted an interview with reformed industrial metal pioneers GODFLESH prior to their August 24 concert at Moscow Hall in Moscow, Russia. You can now watch the chat below.

GODFLESH will release its first new recording in over 12 years through Decibel magazine’s Flexi Series in October. A cover of the track “F.O.D. (Fuck of Death)” by legendary death thrashers SLAUGHTER (Canada) will be included in the subscriber version of the magazine’s November issue (streeting October 5).

You can now stream the track at this location.

In a recent interview with the French radio station Le 106, GODFLESH‘s Justin Broadrick stated about the band’s forthcoming album — which is tentatively titled “A World Lit Only By Fire” and due in May 2014 — “It will be [musically] similar to the first two or three [GODFLESH albums]. I just think, like we’re playing these shows, we feel very pure about we’re doing and honoring the initial intentions with what we originally set out to do. Which, I think, like most bands and musicians and all the rest of it, by the time you get on to your fourth album, it’s somewhat of a dilution going on to what you initially tried to achieve. It will definitely sound aggressive and it probably won’t sound like any of the other records we’ve made, but it will have the minimalism of the first few records.”

Added GODFLESH bassist G.C. Green: “It won’t sound like the first two record; it will be more the spirit… When you make records over the years, you change as people, you change as musicians, you progress, you develop and you take other styles on, but I think, having had a break from it and come back to it, it seems that we’ve gone straight back into what the essence of it was originally, and that’s why it feels good.”

Continued Justin: “It’s getting straight back to the core of what this is all about. And I think having a break from it has probably even more inspired… It’s like refocusing and obviously, we’re somewhat older and wiser. It’s gonna be a really interesting record. It’s extremely minimal and very, very brutal — a fairly unforgiving record, really, I think.”

GODFLESH‘s seminal debut full-length album, 1989’s “Streetcleaner”, was remastered and reissued in a deluxe digipak in Europe on June 21, 2010 and in North America on August 10, 2010 via Earache Records.

“Streetcleaner” was GODFLESH‘s second release, proving to be one of the band’s finest and most recognized albums and helping them to become one of the most influential industrial bands ever. Now “Streetcleaner” was brought up to date as a special expanded version, with all tracks remastered by GODFLESH founding member Justin Broadrick. The album also includes a bonus disc featuring 12 previously unreleased live tracks, alternate mixes and demos, and comes housed in a deluxe multi-panel digipak with detailed liner notes.

Indie Recordings has set a September 21 release date (September 24 in Germany, Austria and Norway) for “Vertikal II” from Sweden’s CULT OF LUNA. The four-track effort contains over 36 minutes of music.

‘Vertikal II’ is the continuation of our journey into the harshness of the monotone city landscape,” commented CULT OF LUNA‘s Johannes Persson. “The songs were written during the ‘Vertikal’ session and we always intended them to be released close to the album. Justin Broadrick‘s (GODFLESH) remix was not a part of the original plan but since it came out phenomenally good we thought that it would fit perfectly as closer of the whole ‘Vertikal’ project. With ‘Vertikal II’, we complete and end a chapter that, for the last few years, has been a big part of our lives. Now we leave the inner city and look up into the vast void above.”

“Vertikal” marked a much-anticipated return for CULT OF LUNA after five years spent cultivating the ideas and directing the influences that have helped form a concept for the album. Distilled throughout are themes of machinery, repetition and clear, linear structures honed to the visual imagery of Fritz Lang‘s classic expressionist science-fiction film “Metropolis”. The music broods, builds and boils as you may expect from CULT OF LUNA, but never overcomplicates itself or veers from its intentions; it is arguably their finest and most cohesive piece of work to date.

The CD version of “Vertikal II” comes in a limited digipak, with three new songs plus a remix of “Vacarious Redemption” by Justin K. Broadrick. The total running time is over 36 minutes.

“Vertikal II” CD track listing:

01. Oro
02. Light Chaser
03. Shun The Mask
04. Vicarious Redemption (remix by Justin K. Broadrick)

The vinyl version is limited to 1000 copies with die-cut sleeve, different cover artwork and several different vinyl colors

“Vertikal II” 12″ EP/mini-LP track listing:

Side A:

01. Oro
02. Light Chaser

Side B:

01. Shun The Mask
