The Body/Master, We Perish/At A Loss Recordings/2013 CD Review


  The  Body  are  a  band  from  Providence,  Rhode  Island  that h as  been  featured  before  in t his  zine  with  a  musical  style  on  the  new  recording  that  I  would  describe  as  being  a  mixture  of  noise,  sludge,  drone  and  doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "Master,  We  Perish"  which  was  released  by  At  A  Loss  Recordings.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  drumming  with  no  fast  playing  or  blast  beats  being  present on  this  recording,  while  the  sound  effects  bring  elements  of  drone  and  noise  to  the  recording,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  riffs  that  combine  sludge,  drone  and  doom  metal  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  along  with  a  good  amount  of  heavy  sounding  distortion  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  as  well  as  some  soft  and  clean  playing.

  Vocals  range  from  high  pitched  sludge  screams,  spoken  word  parts  and  operatic  female  vocals,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  depressing  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  dark  sound  with  the  last  song  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  The  Body  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  band,  you  should  enjoy  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Worship".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
