Hot off the heels of THE BODY being announced to make a very rare appearance to Europe in 2014 for the famed Roadburn Festival, and since it’s Halloween, THE BODY have released a video for ‘Shrouded‘, taken from their new album Christs, Redeemers which was released via Thrill Jockey earlier this month.
As with their previous videos for ‘An Altar or A Grave‘ and ‘To Attempt Openness‘, this new one again is drenched in pure eeriness. As Noisey puts it: “What is always so frightening about videos by Portland-by-way-of-Providence duo The Body has nothing to do with Satan, beasts from folklore or anything truly supernatural; the horror of reality that is far more disturbing”, now check out this ghoulish masterpiece below:
Since their humble origins back in 2004, THE BODY have evolved and refined their craft in order to absolutely nullify the spirit in the most harsh and violent way sonically possible, pushing their emotive yet harrowing doom into the horrifying unknown that is perfectly reflected in the punishing Christs, Redeemers which is out now via Thrill Jockey Records on CD, 2xLP, Digital formats and you can read Jamie’s recent review HERE and an interview with drummer Lee Buford HERE.
