Biography

“There’s heaviness. There’s brutality. Then there’s The Body.” – Metal Sucks

It has been said by more than a few intrepid listeners that The Body is the most brutal band on the planet. With ravishing grimness and impenetrable walls of noise, the duo of Chip King and Lee Buford create music that goes beyond what is normally considered harsh and violent, ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Harrowing 19 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great album, probably one of the heaviest things out there at the moment. Not what you'd call 'accessible', it's very punishing and relentlessly brutal. Definitely worth a listen if you like your music very dark.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Body - Christs, Redeemers 9. - (95%) 11 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With a reputation as one of the weirder, more over-whelming and just down right nasty left-field experimental doom bands, The Body bring their perfectly judged cacophony of masoconventionism to eerie new spectacular heights with the much anticipated `Christ's, Redeemers'. With murderous folky ballads provided by a female vocalist over droning tonal poems, there is also new emotional threads being sewn, particularly in `Night of Blood In a World Without End' when the line "The pain of living holds no victory" reigns out over the preceding filth ridden, amp blowing scuzz fuzz and battery.

I could always imagine Lee Buford and Chip King wryly grinning as they implemented their earth shattering compositional arsenal, but during `Christ's, Redeemers' it feels like the earth, sky and waters turn to grey and happiness or joy is recognised as just a pitiful little spark, neurons firing to protect and blanket us, an emotion that serves very little evolutionary purpose and, actually, the pursuit of joy or beauty or contentment could be reflected upon as a very counter intuitive or destructive thing, seen as though it is always relevant to one's circumstance. People who wilfully pursue their own happiness probably only enjoy short lived relationships, are unreliable, are at a base level deeply selfish. But they're happy so surely that's the meaning of living? If you ask me, that's cold and wrong and sort of fundamentally ignorant. Once again, happiness is no more than a fizzy bit of electricity in your head. The vast majority of life doesn't even have the capacity to be `happy'. It just does and is and fulfilling real instincts that nurture the body is energy better spent than hungering for a mirage of a feeling that just moves further away every time you grasp it for a moment.

`Denial of the Species' is one of the stronger tracks The Body have ever produced, with that characteristic trip-hoppy glitch under the dredging hopelessly punishing guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars We're Not Worthy! We're Not Worthy! 21 Oct 2013
By Bingo Sanchez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
The Body are the leading voice in avant-metal. I can't think of anyone else that can convey raw terror and pummeling force better than this duo. The groups use of walls of blackened noise, slowed-down doomy tempos, and sickly crow howls. Chip and Lee are big on using the studio to their advantage. They bring in tons of guests to get all sorts of instrumentation. Christs, Redeemers is a thoroughly diverse listen and is one of my favorites of 2013. Check this out y'all!
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Record 24 May 2014
By To you - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a very good record. I purchased their newest record "I Shall Die Here" and think it is way better than this one but I like being able to see the progression and maturity in their sound. This is still a solid recording and is inspiring to other musicians who can appreciate truly creative and inventive music.
5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy. 20 Jan 2014
By BeeBeeBeee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A rather heavy, dirty sound with distinct "noise" overtones. Interesting lyrics and singing. For those interested in more extreme music.
