Originally recorded in 1994, and released on GODFLESH mastermind Justin Broadrick‘s Avalanche Recordings, the highly sought-after GODFLESH EP Messiah was once available only via the official GODFLESH website. Containing four lost songs and ambient remixes of those same songs, Messiah is a dark, chilling glimpse inside the mind of one of heavy music’s most revered martyrs. Messiah faultlessly captures the utter strength and forward-thinking vision of GODFLESH.
