God – Lord, I’m On My Way

Grindcore and free Jazz get an industrial Avant-Rock makeover replete with cavernous production. Kevin Martin’s heavy duty outfit really go for it on the 1992 release ‘Possession,  which is possibly their high point; though final album ‘Anatomy of Addiction’ is a colossus beast and just as awe-inspiring.

God – Tunnel

Malevolent Noise Rock from the UK acts final album, 1994’s ‘The Anatomy of Addiction’. Squealing horns, rumbling bass, and more space in the mix than your average Noise Rock track.

God – White Pimp Cut Up

Free Jazz and Dub effects pepper this raucous Noise Rock piece from God’s final album, 1994’s ‘The Anatomy of Addiction’.

God – On All Fours

Noice Rock In excelsis here; from Kevin Martin’s bands final album, 1994’s ‘The Anatomy of Addiction’.

God – Bloodstream

1994’s ‘The Anatomy of Addiction’ was sadly the final release by God, as Kevin Martin wanted to eschew the contraints of a band, and immerse himself in the studio. When one listens to tracks like this, you wish he’d found the time to do both. This mighty piece starts off with echoing horns; moves into grinding doom metal; then becomes a piece of sublime Krautrock influenced music topped of with luscious wah wha guitar and bongo drums.
Then to top it all off some serious dub bass kicks in and the track expands outwards.
it is a winner.

God – Head On Collision

Voodoo Noise-Rock in true God style. For our money, it’s a shame that Kevin Martin totally abandoned this project, as it feels like it could have expanded and mutated further; but we will have to just make do with what was. This is from their third album, 1993’s ‘Consumed’.

God – Lazarus

Horns like buzzing wasps make way for a wailing that gets picked up by a brutal rhythm section; before the song gets into its tough, nasty groove. Suffer eternal!

God – Body Horror

Some gnarly Noise Rock from UK band God; Nasty, noisy, but with some space, light and shade in what is essentially bad trip music. This is from way back in 1994, and from their album ‘The Anatomy of Addiction’.

God – Appeal To Human Greed EP

This is the entire 1995 EP of remixes from the ’94 album ‘The Anatomy of Addiction’. Most notable are the two remixes of ‘Bloodstream’ (the mightiest track from ‘The Anatomy of Addiction’); especially ‘The Evening Redness In The West Mix’ version with its ultra-heavy sub-bass. The 2nd mix of that track is channeling ‘The Gospel Comes To New Guinea’-era 23 Skidoo, and is almost up there with the previous mix. However, there are plenty of other goods on display, such as the doom-laded ‘Tunnel’, or the Industrial Trip-Hop (akin to Martin’s other project, Techno Animal) of the ‘Gold Teeth’ remix. Makes one wonder if Martin would ever bring God back to life.

Tracklist.

(00:00)- Gold Teeth (Charles Atlas Mix)

(04:45)- Bloodstream (The Evening Redness In The West Mix)

(15:18)- On All Fours (Biomechanical Mix)

(20:04)- Tunnel (Electro-Convulsive Mix)

(26:48)- Bloodstream (Peckinpah Mix)

God – Soul Fire

Grindcore, Jazz Skronk, and Psyche Rock blended together in a heady brew from this UK act. Like Dark Magus-era Miles on a steady diet of Painkiller, Swans, and Napalm Death. From the bands tough as nails 1992 album ‘Possession’.
