Messiah

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
Following the release of 2002's indifferently received Hymns opus, industrial grindcore legends Godflesh were finally retired by their sonic architect, Justin Broadrick, who, quiet exit notwithstanding, could proudly look back upon more than a decade of committed service to the cause of extreme music.
