This LP is rooted in Krieg’s depressive BM style, as interpreted & filtered through The Body’s dark noises. The opening track sets the nihilistic atmosphere and moves the main ideas with its swirling high frequencies & pulsing beat, yet being a chord-based song. On a Krieg LP, it would be paced by traditional blast beats & tremolo picking. Instead, The Body turn it into a scathing anthem, as the vocalists engage in a bizarre call & response, a blackened bark & high pitch squeals. Hopelessness.
Favorite track: Bottom Of The Bottle, Bottom Of The River.
