Godflesh mastermind Justin Broadrick is appearing in an excellent interview at Decibel. The new father is slowly working on new Godflesh material and preparing for the band’s November appearance at Britain’s Damnation Festival.

(E)xtreme dissonance (is) central to a lot of black metal and I find that really exciting. It’s genuinely fucking abstract sounding; it conjures up images that are beyond the silly satanic stuff or vikings with big swords. Just again, discordance: there’s a real examination of discordance, which is another thing I love about guitar.
