Godflesh - Messiah

Label: Avalanche
Year: 2000

Self released in 2000 as a limited fanclub CDR, with approximately 1000 copies in circulation, this ep was actually recorded in 1994 around the same time as the 'Selfless' lp, and the original four tracks have a similar pounding avalanche warp versus proto -and-bass approach as 'Selfless'. A year or so after sitting on the songs, the band made dub remixes of each (which...I mean...ok, I guess), and proceeded to sit on those even longer. It wasn't until they broke up that Justin Broadrick decided to package all eight tracks together and give it away. Which was very nice of him.
The record was re-released in 2003 by both Relapse and Ritual / Howling Bull (and again by Relapse in 2008).
