Hello and good day to everyone except those stonewalling relief checks (of course they want them to arrive at last during tax season so they have to be given right back) and the fucking utter scumbags who stole Lady Gaga’s dogs and shot her poor trainer.
So yeah…I needed some good news today and we have it in the form of a killer doom signing!
Bold and experimental doomers Body Void have signed to tastemakers Prosthetic. The duo are one of the coolest bands I found during my tenure on the dumpster fire of Twitter. The group will release Bury Me Beneath This Rotting Earth 4/23 and you can pre order HERE today. I guess they recorded it in New Hampshire last year. I might stay up all night and then drive to that state tomorrow to impulsively go wired on caffeine to America’s Stonehenge, incidentally.
Read an in depth interview and hear massive new single “Wound” today at Metal Injection HERE.
Liking the shriek vocal on this one and the black and white footage was gorgeous. Strap in for a thirteen minute Hell-scape.
At Blackheart Sound in Manchester, New Hampshire the two members of BODY VOID worked with producer Eric Sauter, to process their feelings – both those that had been long festering, and those which were new and raw – into the four tracks that make up their third studio album. An additional layer of electronic filth was applied with the help of solo noise musician, and BODY VOID touring bassist, Entresol.
Of the single, Willow Ryan (Guitar, bass, vocals) comments: “Wound is a song not only about the ecological harm we’ve done to the earth, but the spiritual harm we’ve done to ourselves as a result of corporate capitalism. Saving the planet and our collective souls is a singular endeavor. We are the earth in both a physical and metaphysical sense, and we cannot continue as a species if we value profit above all life on this floating ball of dust and debris we call home. We are doomed to extinction if our only mode of existence is accumulation and exploitation.“
And speaking on the signing says: “We’re incredibly excited to join Prosthetic Records. Not only to be part of its historic and diverse roster full of bands we love and respect, but also to join with our dear doomy friends in Bismuth, Vile Creature, and Weltesser. The label has been incredibly kind and welcoming to us and we’re excited to find out what we’re able to achieve going forward.“
Prosthetic Records’ Becky Laverty adds: “I have admired BODY VOID from afar for some time now, so I’m thrilled that we get to work with them on this excellent album. We’re really looking forward to being a part of the BODY VOID story, and seeing what paths it leads us down.”
