Godflesh is the eponymous first release by the influential[2] industrial metal band Godflesh. It was originally released in 1988 on Swordfish Records, and was later reissued on Earache Records with two additional songs.[3]

Musically, the album's generally slow and extremely heavy riffs are virtually a polar opposite to Broadrick's fast-paced work with Napalm Death on their genre-defining grindcore debut, Scum.
