Body Void are a band from San Francisco, California that plays a mixture of drone, sludge, doom metal and crust and this is a review of their 2018 album "I Live Inside A Burning House" which will be released in May as a joint effort between Seeing Red Records, Crown & Throne and Dry Cough.
Atmospheric drones start off the album and also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs while the riffs also bring in a small amount of dark sounding melodies along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the riffs bringing in the heaviness of sludge and doom metal.
Vocals are mostly high pitched sludge style screams while some of the amp distortion also brings in elements of harsh noise along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats, crust and grindcore elements can also be heard and when guitar leads are finally utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion, clean guitars and melodic chants can also be heard on the closing track.
Body Void plays a musical style that takes drone, noise, sludge, doom metal, crust and grindcore and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover queer identity, mental illness and how they impact the push-pull relationship between material and immaterial existence.
In my opinion Body Void are a very great sounding mixture of drone, sludge, doom metal and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Haunted" and "Given". 8 out of 10.
