The Body

Experimental doom/sludge metal duo the Body formed in Providence, Rhode Island in 1999, tapping into the city's thriving noise and experimental scene when formulating their grating, punishing hybrid of brutal metal and difficult noise textures. Composed of Chip King on guitars and howling vocals and Lee Buford on drums and various other electronic sound-makers, the pair played locally and perfected their approach before releasing a self-titled album on Moganono Records in 2004. The Body frequently toured and released music in the form of smaller-scale EPs and split recordings with other bands. In 2010, the group released All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood on At a Loss Recordings, following the next year with both an anthology compilation on Corleone Records and Nothing Passes, a collaborative album with friends Braveyoung. Somewhere amid their touring and constant evolution, the Body relocated to Portland, Oregon.

Their 2013 Thrill Jockey full-length, Christs, Redeemers, found the Body employing samples, stringed instruments, and folky guest vocals along with their regular brigade of noise, drum blasts, and gruesomely slow metal churning. For their next work, the pair teamed up with the Haxan Cloak, who further deconstructed the Body's terror-inducing sound on their 2014 album for Rvng Intl., I Shall Die Here. That same year the band released a split LP with fellow Providence metalheads Sandworm on Thrill Jockey shortly before the two groups embarked on a tour together. Enjoying collaboration more and more, the band teamed up with like-minded Louisiana doom metal band Thou in 2014 to release an EP entitled Released from Love, which was released in a limited edition on the Vinyl Rites label. The collaborative effort was repackaged early the next year along with another batch of songs the bands developed together, released by Thrill Jockey as You, Whom I Have Always Hated/Released from Love. Two more collaborative albums appeared that year: xoroAHbin with Japanese group Vampillia and an album with American black metal group Krieg, released by At a Loss. In March of 2016, Thrill Jockey issued No One Deserves Happiness, the Body's most sonically diverse album to date, utilizing beats from a Roland TR-808 drum machine as well as faster tempos influenced by hip-hop and dance music. That same month, Neurot Recordings released One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache, the Body's full-length collaboration with Maryland grindcore band Full of Hell. The two bands toured together in support of the release. ~ Fred Thomas

I first learned about The Body when they played a small show at UNCG in North Carolina and I have been hooked on their work since. I tell everyone about them.
