• Godflesh "Songs of Love and Hate" Cassette
Of the many excellent Godflesh albums released during the '90s, Songs of Love and Hate will appeal to fans of traditional heavy metal more than any of the other albums. The preceding albums -- Pure, Merciless, and Selfless -- integrated a strong sense of industrial mechanics with their machine-driven percussion into Justin Broadrick and G.C. Green's aggressive, detuned guitar poetry. Succeeding releases -- Songs of Love and Hate in Dub and Us and Them -- integrated even more computerized manipulation into Godflesh's emo-heavy metal with these albums' hip-hop, dub techno, and drum'n'bass flavors.
