Product Description

I Shall Die Here is the fourth full-length album by The Body. Sharing their moribund vision for I Shall Die Here with Bobby Krlic (aka The Haxan Cloak), the tried and true sound of The Body is cut to pieces, mutilated by process and re-animated in a spectral state by the newly minted partnership. The Body's brutal musical approach, engraved by drummer Lee Buford's colossal beats and Chip King's mad howl and bass-bladed guitar dirge, becomes something even more terrifying with Krlic's post-mortem ambiences serving as both baseline and outer limit. I Shall Die Here sonically serrates the remains of metal's already unidentifiable corpse and splays it amid tormented voices in shadow.. A handful of precursor releases readied the band for seasoned explorations across their debut self-titled album (Moganano, 2003) and on the widely-acclaimed All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood (At A Loss, 2011). The Body's curtailing of formal classification figured heavily on All the Waters. The album's employment of the Assembly of Light Choir's classical chorales alongside more industrial music techniques such as vocal sampling and drum programming in turn prompted RVNG to inquire with King and Buford which darker corners of the electronic universe they were presumably interested in exploring. The earnestly experimental undertaking of I Shall Die Here is expertly aided by Seth Manchester and Keith Souza, The Body's longstanding engineers and creative collaborators, and noted producer Krlic. Krlic's own work as The Haxan Cloak struck a similarly despairing chord to The Body with last year's celebrated Excavations (Tri Angle, 2013), itself a minimalist evocation of the afterlife. I Shall Die Here shares similar nether space with the morbidly deviating darkness of Excavations, but remains sculpturally frozen in a sort of earthen purgatory. On album opener To Carry the Seeds of Death Within Me , a dramatic pause partitions the seismic caterwauling and savage whump of the first half from the ambient, suffocating ripple of the second. From there, the dimensional doom marches on in procession, ceaselessly alternating between shape and shadow. According to the band themselves, they sought to create something wholly experimental with I Shall Die Here. In the course of its creation and recreation, they have attained that rare artistic goal: an album with few precedents and a paradigm shift richly realized. Bobby Krlic's downcast electronic visions laces seamlessly into The Body's already volatile mix of fissured doom metal and fused verbal spaces. The onset of a new music emerges with I Shall Die Here, and in its shifts, shadows, and reeling voices, the darkest possible formulation of electronic music has been realized.

This album takes Christ Redeemers and crushes it into an even more apocalyptic creation which is both dark and insane.

This,as far as I know is a fairly recent release,slightly different from previous releases thanks to The Haxan Cloaks involvement.Ambient parts,electronic pieces,samples,screams.This is a really impressive collaboration.Recommended.

???????!!!!!!! 17 April 2014
By Scott Rosenbluth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Those like myself who are unfamiliar with The Body should probably look to past releases for a more clear picture of what they represent, but for those interested in incredible music that doesn't conform to any specific genre standards, pick this up right now. This is a drone, doom, industrial, electronic, death, "metal" record that offers swells of discomfort, trance, and vitriol in equal portions. I had never really heard anything like this before, so it made me listen to it over and over again. Fans of drone should really love this but every fan of experimental metal can find something to like about this. There are several guests on the album that add nuance and flare, and the production really augments the entire album into something cohesive. I'm not normally a fan of electronics in metal, but these sound rooted in Godflesh territory so it's all good. The actual case is a stupid cardboard sleeve which I hate but the lack of information on it as well as its totally nondescript nature, make it seem like some underground snuff soundtrack that some guy gave you. Basically it adds to the whole filthy/strange aspect of the album. All in all this release speaks volumes about the state of modern metal. The Body do whatever they want, and in doing so have created something different and most certainly evil.

somber themes 6 May 2014
By BeeBeeBeee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This recording deserves more attention than it will probably get. Six songs with serious, dark themes... I was in a rather unhappy mood when I first listened and this matched that dark mood perfectly. Good work.
