The Body And Thou - You, Whom I Have Always Hated FLAC album
Rather than a Split Album, The Body and Thou crafted a Collaboration Album that is nothing but a masterpiece.
Beyond the Realms of Dream, That Fleeting Shade Under the Corpus of Vanity" is from the album "You, Whom I Have Always Hated" by The Body & Thou, out o. .
You, Whom I Have Always Hated is a collaborative album by American sludge metal bands The Body and Thou. Released on January 27, 2015 through Thrill Jockey record label, the album was included on the reissue of bands' first collaborative effort, Released from Love EP (2014).
The Body and Thou must get bored easily. During the last decade, both of these delirious doom metal squads have issued records at startling clips, the pace sometimes so speedy it’s as if they’re desperate to outrun the doomsdays of which they so often yell. Despite several dozen releases, they’ve managed but four (intriguing, at worst, and inescapable, at best) full-lengths. It’s important that You, Whom I Have Always Hated marks the shortest effective span between successive LPs from either the Body or Thou. Perhaps together, they can continue to avoid boredom.
Record/Vinyl + Digital Album. The Body and Thou are bands with Southern roots that have been pushing the boundaries of heavy metal for over a decade. Both have maintained relentless touring schedules, a dedication to DIY ethics and aesthetics, and a commitment to push their respective brands of extreme music into previously unexplored territories.
2015’s You, Whom I Have Always Hated, the latter of which will be discussed. I first heard The Body via the band’s 2010 release, All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood, which was the closest thing to sonic misery I think I’d heard at the time. With aid from the Assembly of Light choir, a vocal group who provided the album some melodic presence, the duo’s full-length was replete with assault and shriek, a brand of experimental metallic nuance I would almost label Stress Metal, as if Doom simply wouldn’t cut it for definition’s sake. Two heavyweights of metal have joined forces to usher in 2015 in characteristically brutal style. A thunderous collision of sludge metal and doom, the resulting record is a nightmarish vision of anguish and torment communicated through a cacophony of feedback, cataclysmic percussion and a death rattle of guitar and bass.
27, New Orleans sludgemongers Thou and Portland doom duo The Body are releasing the collaborative album You, Whom I Have Always Hated, via Thrill Jockey. And if you’re familiar with these two bands, you know that they make a lot of burly, gut-wrenching noise. And now they’re doing it all over other people’s songs. Thrill Jockey just unleashed a stream of the bands’ cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Terrible Lie, and it’s a big fucking mess in the best way possible. You can still recognize the song, of course, but it’s much noisier, sludgier, and pretty terrifying.
A team-up with equally sludgy Baton Rouge doom metal act Thou was a suitable next chapter when the two entities teamed up in 2014 for the collaborative EP Released from Love. The burning, suffocating walls of downtuned guitars and battle-ready drums found an expanded bedding for both Thou vocalist Bryan Funck's slithering demon whispers and the Body vocalist/bassist Chip King's distinctive high-pitched screams. Two of the album's standout tracks come with its covers. The ensemble delivers a sinking, depressively spare take on Vic Chesnutt's tune "Coward" as well as a more faithful rendition of early Nine Inch Nails classic "Terrible Li.
For The Body, doom has always been a mere starting point on their avant-garde adventures, and on tracks such as Coward this is as ever the case, its reedy, plaintive cries of pain fleshed out at the midpoint by Thou’s notorious heft, defiant anchors of guitar amidst the formless despair. So roams the majority of the album, meandering through bewildering cacophonies, their cover of NIN’s Terrible Lie a familiar comfort mangled almost beyond recognition. A curious exercise in gleefully pulling apart the fundaments of metal and picking over the corpse, piece by agonising piece.
The Body and Thou are bands with Southern roots that have been pushing the boundaries of heavy metal for over a decade. You, Whom I Have Always Hated is a new collaborative release that showcases both bands’ unique abilities to create music that is emotionally effecting and unrelenting.
