Side A contains two separate Carcass sessions, recorded in 1988 and 1990 respectively, with John Peel purportedly saying following the first, "Is it too soon to nominate this as the session of the year?" Side B contains the infamous session from industrial metal pioneers Godflesh, recorded back in August 1989.
Godflesh are highly regarded as one of the pioneers of industrial metal (or debated as industrial rock music); they took industrial to the next level with their fuse of heavy guitars and mixing it with slow drum loops and effects. Godflesh has influences ranging from initially Swans, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and industrial music very much like Killing Joke, Throbbing Gristle and even some folk from Leonard Cohen (most of his song/album titles and some lyrics were borrowed from him).
Contrary to popular belief, Godflesh isn't grindcore or death metal; they were an experimental form of industrial metal. Their sound was constantly evolving; at times, Godflesh moved practically completely away from "metal" only to move back with the next release. All around, the "industrial" element always stuck with them.
Justin Broadrick formed this group after walking out of Napalm Death and having stints in other bands such as Head of David and Fall Of Because. He formed the band with Ben "GC" Green, a partnership which is seen as being the definitive essence of Godflesh. Justin saw this project as a "renaming" of the last band Fall Of Because (changing from that name to Godflesh).
