THE BODY WITH MUSLIN, LINGUA IGNOTA, ‘CUSE ME

Tuesday, February 21 2017
8:00PM
 
 

“There’s heaviness. There’s brutality. Then there’s The Body.” It has been said by more than a few intrepid listeners that The Body is the most brutal band on the planet. With ravishing grimness and impenetrable walls of noise, the duo of Chip King and Lee Buford create music that goes beyond what is normally considered harsh and violent, advocating a doctrine of misanthropy to those brave enough to take the plunge. Since their recording career began in earnest in 2004, The Body has expanded the definition of what it means to be a metal band, incorporating elements of noise, avant-garde composition, and experimental electronic music into their crushing doom and searing black metal foundation. One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache, the duo’s latest transmission of loathing and revulsion, finds King and Buford collaborating with grindcore luminaries, Full of Hell, pushing even further into the horrifying unknown. 

The Body will be joined by the pitch-black spectral sounds of Muslin, the spine-tingling and soul-crushing noise-ballads of Lingua Ignota, and the shape-shifting doom of ‘Cuse Me.
