Khost: Needles Into the Ground - Deconstructed and Reconstructed by Godflesh

Khost: Needles Into the Ground – Deconstructed and Reconstructed by Godflesh

Khost is a project of Birmingham’s Andy Swan, who used to be in Final with Justin Broadrick. I haven’t heard anything else by Khost, I have to admit that the presence of the name Godflesh is the main draw for me here. But holy hell, this is some of the hardest ripping Broadrick material I’ve heard in a while. “Inversion” is just searing and relentless. “Revelations Vultures Jackals Wolves” is so distorted that it chokes you. “Deathsset” is a new Khost track untouched by Broadrick, and it feels a bit less claustrophobic and punishing, although there’s more vocals and a bit more guitar-sounding guitar. It’s pretty good but Broadrick really brings his A-game here.
