One of the most unique musical acts in existence, featuring nearly two dozen members, the ASSEMBLY OF LIGHT choir is a secular all-female choral faction, unifying their incredible range of voices into beautiful, and often undeniably eerie, ethereal hymns, which blend classical styles through their own artistic experimentation and tactics. Formed in 2008 by vocalist Chrissy Wolpert, the unit has showcased their craft live across the nation, and following their unforgettable collaborations both live and in the studio — playing a major role in The Body’s All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood as well as The Body & Braveyoung’s collaborative Nothing Passes LP — the choir released their self-titled debut album via At A Loss Recordings in 2012. Wolpert also makes ethereal vocal contributions to The Body’s anticipated upcoming Master, We Perish release.

“All six songs will teleport your whole being into another reality as you fly away on some very ethereal voices.” – Cvlt Nation
“…this record really showed me the power of the human voice and the utterly stunning and emotional things it can create. If you give this record a chance I can promise you will be moved emotionally and spiritually. 9/10” – American Aftermath
“The Assembly of Light Choir’s collaboration on The Body’s All of The Waters of The Earth Turned To Blood are some of the most compelling tracks on the record. The juxtaposition of the all-female choir against The Body’s rumbling low-end blasts is a study in eerie contrast, and one that continues on AoLC’s debut LP.” – Brooklyn Vegan
“They are one of the most interesting and certainly unique group of artists out there, and they are pushing boundaries in ways most metal bands fear. This is a breath-taking, imaginative effort that you might find will break down the walls of your genre fiefdom with the power of a wrecking ball.” – Meat Mead Metal
” Subliminal and meditative, this music projects either the innocence of a human being’s birth or the unbelievable sadness of one’s passing.” – Metal Reviews
