Following their acclaimed All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood LP in 2012, and their collaborative Nothing Passes LP with Braveyoung in 2011, THE BODY‘s long out-of-print self-titled debut album will be reborn this June.
The re-released version of The Body will be made available on CD and deluxe digital download worldwide on June 26th via At A Loss Recordings — the label responsible for releasing both All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood and Nothing Passes.
THE BODY originally released the self-titled album on Moganono Records in 2004, before the duo began infiltrating their apocalyptic sludge hymns with lush vocal choirs, orchestral movements and industrial noise programming. But while a bit more atavistic in nature, the album bears nearly forty-five minutes of THE BODY‘s now renowned slow-motion dirge riffs, innards-shifting low-end tones, chaotic instrumental breaks, repetitive/building tonal movements, and sinister shrieking, sure to satisfy the doomsday urges within any fans of the band’s newer, more recognized releases. This new version of the album has been remixed/remastered at Machines With Magnets, where THE BODY has recorded all of their material to date.
The Body Track Listing:
1. ( )
2. The City Of The Magnificent Jewel
3. Hearts Ache, Even In Dreams (City Eater)
4. Culture Destroyer
5. The Mother And Tomb Of All Things
