Godflesh is a band from Birmingham, England, one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s of IndustrialMetal and an influence on many other bands, including Music/{{Isis}}, Music/FaithNoMore, {{Converge}}, Music/{{Korn}}, Music/{{Ministry}} and Music/FearFactory. The band's core lineup generally consists of vocalist/guitarist Justin Broadrick and bassist GC Green; the band usually uses a drum machine, though they have also used real drummers in their music.

The band's original incarnation was formed in 1982, under the name "Fall of Because", by Green and guitarist Paul Neville. Justin Broadrick, who had played guitar in the legendary {{Grindcore}} outfit Music/NapalmDeath, joined the group as vocalist and drummer in 1985; two years later, the band fell apart. In 1988, Broadrick contacted Green and they reformed Fall of Because, Broadrick taking up the position of guitarist and deciding to use a drum machine. The band also changed its name to "Godflesh". Throughout their career, Godflesh was known for its [[EpicRiff crushing guitar riffs]], plodding bass, robotic percussion, and Broadricks's HarshVocals and minimalistic lyrics.

In 2001, Green left the band. During this time, Broadrick's relationship with his girlfriend had dissolved, and Broadrick [[CreatorBreakdown suffered a nervous breakdown]]; he disbanded Godflesh in 2002.

In 2009/10, the band reunited, and released an album, ''A World Lit Only by Fire'', in 2014.

As stated above, the primary lineup of the band consists of Broadrick and Green; however, they have had other, [[GuestStarPartyMember temporary members]]. These include:
* Paul Neville guitars (19891991)
* Robert Hampson guitars (19911992)
* Bryan Mantia drums, percussion (19941996)
* Steve Hough guitars (1999)
* Diarmuid Dalton samples, moog (1999)
* Ted Parsons drums, percussion (19962002)
* Paul Raven bass (2002)
