Khost [Deconstructed And Reconstructed By] Godflesh | Needles Into The Ground
Needles Into the Ground contains material by Khost which has been elementally transformed by Justin Broadrick of Godflesh. The original Khost material – taken from their second album Corrosive Shroud – is dense, multifaceted and purgatorial with no straightforward ‘stems’ based approach. Broadrick has extracted what he needed for his work whilst in pure Godflesh mode. As a result, the outcome is claustrophobic and frenetic, the experience akin to being in the proximity of a large, unstable machine on the verge of meltdown. In addition to these pieces, Khost has added a new track.
“If it was a painting it would be about a kilometer wide held up by old, thick metal supports and wires that creak in wind, in parts abstract, in parts quite hard to decipher, and the materials would be oil like and seeping, never quite drying out” (Khost).

Terrorizer: “The result of this collaboration between the two Brummie scrap meal merchants is suitably corrosive as they mangle together bruising beats, jagged riffs and a cold industrial clamour… Heady, heavy and harsh, these needles puncture with dramatic effect.”
