Post Self is simultaneously inventive and classic GODFLESH. The blue and icy atmosphere of Post Self can reach levels touched on in the happenings of early '90s Norway innovations. From the opening track, it's clear that the vocal performance is JUSTIN BROADRICK's best in ages, utilizing new approaches ranging from higher tortured screams to truly brutal and barbaric low roars not heard since Streetcleaner (1989). Within those extremes, mystically effected vocals coming from an industrial corner support the classic "post punk" style voice that became a hallmark dating all the way back to HEAD OF DAVID, as well as the bonus tracks heard on the Streetcleaner CD version and the ultimate hypnotic Godflesh track "Flowers." Throughout the whole of the record is a pervasive cold that settles into the atmosphere of Post Self under which nasty and vile machine rhythms create an '80s nighttime rainy streets groove. Dark, hard, heartbreaking, and beautiful, Post Self feels like the culmination of all of Broadrick's various musical interests and achievements in his 30 years of dedication to subcultural music: industrial, noise, post punk, ambient, extreme metal, bass music, and more-- but it is also quintessential Godflesh in its monumental and timeless feeling of existentialism and the human condition. A World Lit Only By Fire (2014) was Godflesh's mortal return, but Post Self feels like Godflesh's immortal soul. Cassette with foil stamped cover.
