Preaching three anti-life messages, Master We Perish takes the distinctive, matchless attack of earthmoving cult THE BODY to its most corrosive and ominous yet; blackened bursts of noise-drenched, doom fueled by hypnotic, tribal rhythms and penetrating vocal torture. Recorded at Providence, Rhode Island-based Machines With Magnets (Battles, Daughters, Lightning Bolt, Chinese Stars). THE BODY also recruited Leslie Weitz (Otesanek), Chrissy Wolpert (Assembly Of Light Choir) and Reba Mitchell (Whore Paint) for vocal contributions throughout the torrid endeavor adding an array of eerie dynamics to the songs. Master, We Perish is out now on 12″ EP, CD, cassette and digital download via At A Loss Recordings.

Stay tuned as more updates on THE BODY‘s upcoming release and tour schedule continues to expand, with a new full-length, collaborations with Thou and Krieg and more touring through the year all just a part of what remains in store for 2013.

THE BODY’s the horrific videos created for two of the hymns on Master We Perish were both directed by Richard Rankin. Witness “The Ebb and Flow of Tides in a Sea of Ash” and “Worship” below.
