Written and recorded during the long recording sessions of THE BODY’s Christs, Redeemers (Thrill Jockey) andI Shall Die Here (RVNG Intl.) LPs at Machines With Magnets in Providence, KRIEG’s Neill Jameson showed up with only an acoustic guitar, a few pedals and a bottle of whiskey, Lee Buford and Chip King of THE BODY knew that the this material would produce something vastly different than their prior collaborations. The end result is a blackened industrial crush of noise and anguish. Noise, dirge, triggered percussion with King’s screeches and Jameson’s growls lead things off, and continuing through the nine tracks, crawling booms, chimes 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 otherworldliness, with nearly forty minutes of material.
Featuring new music from the impending LP, the harrowing new trailer for The Body & Krieg was produced by Chariot Of Black Moth, also responsible for intense trailers for Antigama, Rwake, Cowards, Dead To A Dying World, Trial and countless others.
