Originally released in 1994, and hailed as one of Godflesh’s greatest works, Selfless gets a reissue though its original label, Earache. Melding metal riffery with industrial drum programming Justin Broadrick and Christian Green set a benchmark with pretty much every Godflesh release, and it’s great to revisit them.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 26th May 2016
Selfless and the Merciless EP are basically Godflesh's brief stint with Sony. While Merciless was a gloomier record, Selfless has more accessible qualities. Think Pure but without of the gruff vocalisations (but are still present), and spacier delayed ridden "clean" vocals. What makes me laugh is these same people that slag off this record are the same meatheads that claim to love bands like Fear Factory, Slipknot, or Ministry. These bands owe a hell of a lot to Godflesh whether they realise this or not.
