THOU, who are no strangers to covering songs (in the past they done Soundgarden, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Black Sabbath, Minor Threat) and this time along with THE BODY, they have reworked Nine Inch Nails‘ classic Terrible Lie into a ferocious and intense beast of a song. It’s available on THE BODY and THOU‘s new collaborative release You, Whom I Have Always Hated which is set to be released on 26th January via Thrill Jockey Records.
Now listen Terrible Lie to below:
THE BODY and THOU are bands with Southern US roots that have been pushing the boundaries of metal music for over a decade. Both have maintained relentless touring schedules, a dedication to DIY ethics & aesthetics, and a complete commitment to push their respective brands of extreme music into previously unexplored territories like no other bands in the genre. You, Whom I Have Always Hated is a new collaborative release that showcases both bands’ unique abilities to create music that is emotionally effecting and unrelenting with its power.
CD and digital versions of the release combine recordings by long time THOU engineer James Whitten (originally released only on LP as Released From Love on Vinyl Rites) and new material recorded by Seth Manchester and Keith Souza of Machines with Magnets, long-time engineers for THE BODY. THE BODY and THOU plan to reunite in the latter half of 2015 for some more touring shenanigans. THOU will also be making an appearance at Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands this April.
