Who know them?
Finally i listened to "The Machine" the other day... and it's quite Godflesh-like, i guess. Sounds pretty dark at all. Any thoughts?

I think they have been discussed many times in all the incarnations of this messageboard. Basically a Godflesh/ Pitchshifter clone band (for some reason I think they are Greek?) that, to my ears, never managed to elevate itself above the level of emulation... They were not bad but decidedly second rate...

They were from the US as far as I know. released 3 CDs on Relapse and one on some other label.

"The Machine" and "This Will Hurt Someone EP" are probably among my favourite 2nd rate GF-Clone albums. "Collusion" and "Thanatos Descends" were more or less bleh with some better moments.

Grab the EP if you can. That's all you need.

Speking of Godflesh clones. Does anyone remember Candiru?

Yeah, Candiru is somewhere up there with Dead World (not Greek? well, then there you have it) but my favourite GF clone badn have to be Soulstorm (discussed here some 2 years back or so) who were kinda dumb metal take on Godflesh but somehow charming. Of course, none of these bands REALLY understood what the actual appeal of Godlfesh is all about but hey, they were trying...

Soulstorm? Never heard of them. And believe, back then I used to buy anything that didn't move fast enough and was somehow guitars combined with drum machine. Ah, those were the days...

To be honest I guess I bought some really horrible records back then. But tell me more about this Soulstorm, please.

Well, I think TIM brought them up on the old board (see how easily I slipped into calling that board old) some two years ago and then we discussed them a bit. I think they were Canadian. Indeed, they had a drum machine and were somewhat slow. And the singer definitely made a point of alternating between rough yells and 'emotional' whails... They had the baddest distorted bass guitar ever too. The album is called 'Darkness visible' and as soon as I fix my Internet at home I'll upload it for you to get it...

Soulstorm is terrible, Dead World is American.

Does anyone need any further clarification?

K30T3 - Soulstorm is terrible, Dead World is American.

When you consider that neither band is very good, it's plain to see that Josh is using this comparative construct to equate "American" with "terrible". While I agree with him on some aspects, there are so many great things about America too... it's too bad Josh's self-loathing has seeped out into his worldview to this degree.

Actually, what I'm saying there is that Soulstorm is obviously terrible, since they're Canadian, and IN CONTRAST, Dead World is American, and therefore neither terrible nor Canadian -- although, of course, saying a band is both Canadian and terrible is an obvious tautology.

You're not making any sense.

For others confused by Josh's meandering, vaguely whiney, and self-consciously far right ultra-nationalistic comments, I'd say go 2 above this to my previous post and re-read for clarity on the issues at hand.

I remember hearing the song "The Machine" in '96 when I picked up the "10 Years Nuclear Blast" compilation CD. It was probably my favorite track on the comp, and I never could find the full-length CD.

I ended up putting away the comp for years after I got tired of it, and pulled it back out not too long ago - a few years after fully discovering and immersing myself in Godflesh. Definitely pretty generic now.
