THE BODY: Release Details Confirmed + New Track Available

As the official At A Loss Recordings release from Providence, Rhode Island’s THE BODY draws near, details on the release and on the band’s sinister plot slowly fall into place.

Already being dubbed as an incredibly original and ultimately creepy by those who have acquired an LP, the dense, diverse seven tracks on All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood could ultimately be one of the most twisted releases in recent doom metal history. While the main destruction caused by THE BODY is born of its two main members, the unit frequently join forces with other rogue assassins and collectives of musical militia on stage to bring their hymns to life. On All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood, the duo have teamed up with The Assembly Of Light Choir, adding a totally mind engulfing, spine-chilling and downright freaky twist to the band’s devastating doom.

This afternoon, Brooklyn Vegan is helping us spread the word on this tumultuous act by premiering the second track from All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood entitled “A Curse.” Tune in and drop out:

All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood
is set to see an official CD release via At A Loss on July 27th, 2010. The LP version is already available from the band directly and via At A Loss mailorder, and a digital download version will also be available in the coming weeks.
