  • The Body & Full Of Hell – Ascending A Mountain Of Heavy Light (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1612066 The Body and Full of Hell are both unique and in?uential forces in heavy music.
    Both artists welcome challenges and eschew self-promotion. Each artist seems
    driven to take risks and push boundaries of what is considered heavy. A clear
    example being that on recent tours The Body have performed without any live guitar
    or drums. Both artists enjoy the creative growth and music and good times that
    come out of collaborations. Each has collaborated often with other unique but likeminded musicians such as Thou, The Haxan Cloak, Krieg, Merzbow, The Bug and
    the list goes on. Despite their obvious differences in songwriting, The Body and Full
    of Hell are unifed by their shared aesthetic, catharsis through the manipulation
    of emotions transformed by visceral noise and fueled by an inescapable sense of
    dread. They have returned to collaborate again not because of their commonalities
    but because of their differences and what those differences yield in performance.
    With Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light, The Body & Full of Hell have integrated
    a love for electronic noisescapes with abrasive, precise sonic assaults into a sound
    unlike anything either has produced before.
    Written and recorded in one week at Machines with Magnets in Providence, the
    music of Ascending draws from unexpected sources such as reggaetón and jungle
    (“Master’s Story”). There are some familiar guests to The Body fans, namely vocalist
    Chrissy Wolpert (Assembly of Light Choir) and Ben Eberle (Sandworm), as well as
    frst time collaborator drummer Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt, Black Pus), whom
    both bands share a strong aesthetic of individualism. Samples, synth, saxophone,
    and a drum orchestra (led by Chippendale) all throb, and sputter, coagulating under
    the weight of the two bands. Programmed drum patterns and loops taking cues
    from hip hop are bent and twisted throughout, ?awlessly emboldening the distortion
    drenched guitars and howling vocals. Each element, though meticulously crafted,
    is visceral, as the exhilaration of improvisation has not been curtailed by editing.
    Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light casts aside the dogmas of heavy music.
    Extremity in The Body & Full of Hell’s music is not based on macho musings or
    competitive trendiness, but rather is an integral tool to exploring the anxieties of
    modern life and the bridges between personal and political strife. As leading voices
    in DIY and underground music communities, The Body & Full of Hell, along with
    peers such as Thou, are expanding the possibilities of extreme music by shaping
    worlds of sound with a palette of diverse in?uences seldom seen in “heavy music”

    “It’s a rare show of restraint from two of the underground’s most
    pulverizing groups. When the Body and Full of Hell pull back, they
    somehow hit even hit harder.” – Pitchfork
    “The music oscillates between dirty, fuzzed out house beats and
    dissonant sludge riffs, a combination so devastatingly heavy it feels
    like being trapped inside seven torture devices all at once, then
    being thrown into a fery pit of molten lava. It’s that desperate feeling
    and upsetting.” – Metal Sucks
    ““Earth is a Cage” is about as ugly and feedback crunched as you’d
    expect from a meeting of the minds between a grind band and a
    noise peppered doom duo, but it’s also surprisingly fun.” – Invisible
