Godflesh To Release New EP “Decline & Fall” In June, Justin K Broadrick Unsure What Djent Is

Godflesh will have a new EP titled “Decline & Fall” out on June 02nd. The groups much anticipated new studio album “A World Lit Only By Fire” will follow in late September with both releases due on band frontman Justin K Broadrick‘s own Avalanche Records.

Broadrick also has a signature 8-string guitar coming out, which he used on both releases. Its existence led some commenter’s to joke that the new Godflesh would be djent. In regards to that Broadrick replied:

“To answer a few questions here, firstly, I am unsure as to what Djent is! I have been playing an 8 string guitar for a few years now, first release that was 8 string was the Jesu Christmas‘ EP in 2010. All new Godflesh, both the EP and the new LP, were written and recorded with an 8 string, mainly due to the ability to tune even lower coupled with the capability to achieve more complex dissonant chords and riffs. On the latest jesu LP ‘Every day I….’, ‘The Great Leveller‘ is with 8 string guitar….”

    Lots of metalheads don’t know what Djent is. It actually surprises me how many don’t.

      They play dumb. They know.

        Ha ha!

        And they actually look dumb when doing so. If it was true, how disconnected would they really be from current music? It’s not like djent is a ridiculously small sub-sub-subgenre played by 3 guys in a garage…

    Godflesh is way heavier than Djent will ever be.

    Broadrick has always done the “we have nothing to do with Fear Factory (or Korn, or whatever is popular right now)” thing.

    It’s called cementing your legend.
