The Body - All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood
Finally got around to listening to this and this is definitely a hidden gem of this year I'd say. Further, I think this just may be the first time I'm posting a local band on this blog... That's right folks, The Body is a local sludge band out of Providence, R.I. They are playing in a few weeks with Dropdead too at AS220, so for any of you local fucks reading this, you should go make sure you can go to that.
Musically though, this album is some fantastic and crushing sludge. But what really sets this apart... is the choir vocals courtesy of The Assembly of Light Choir in all their magnificent glory, and the additional use of various others instruments such as violas and synths to add to the sound. This is really an album you need to hear for yourself, and experience, even if sludge may not be your thing.
Give this shit a listen.
