Ronin I like to walk during the night. Listening to music. Just bought this album and went out for my late night journey. Never Worth Your Name starts. Triggers fucking anxiety attack. Best late night walk in a long time. Great music or whatever you call this. You should check it out if you are looking for something oppressive, depressive and different.

xhrl_ 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.

about

Formed in mid-1990's and late 1990's respectively, KRIEG and THE BODY metin the mid 2000's, being different sonically but sharing a bleak world view and inspirations musically far outside of the genre of metal. When NEILL JAMESON (sole constant member of KRIEG) showed up to MACHINES WITH MAGNETS with only a acoustic guitar and a few pedals, members of THE BODY knew the collaboration would be something really different. Written and recorded during the long sessions of both Christs, Redeemers (THRILL JOCKEY) & I Shall Die Here (RVNG), the end result is a blackened industrial crush of noise and anguish.

Noise, dirge, triggered percussion w/ Kings screeches and Jameson's growls take the audience to the BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE, BOTTOM OF THE RIVER. Crawling booms, chimes, roars, and moans to static plodding low-end and hopelessness moves to industrial tones, accusing roars. Erie keys, wails of misery lead to brief period of sonic chaos and pure madness. Madness leads the listener lumbering down the final path, complete with discordant percussion, electronic beeps, forlorn screams, cavernous blows, and ending in the sounds of the otherworldliness!

The whole package is completed by the amazingly realistic charcoal drawings
and design of Jason Bartell (also of FANG ISLAND fame).
