Stream The Body and Full of Hell’s Ascending A Mountain Of Heavy Light in Full


The Body and Full of Hell - Ascending a Mountain of Heavy LightAscending A Mountain Of Heavy Light is the second collaborative album between The Body and Full of Hell, following One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache last year. I was quite taken by “The Earth is a Cage” — the song they released this past summer — and now the full record finally sees the light of day via Thrill Jockey.

The song we heard back in August was no anomaly; this record is full of visceral noise, sludge and heavily manipulated sound effects that are sure to unsettle even the most hardened of stomachs. It’s the kind of music your parents feared you’d listen to when they first learned you were into metal. It’s the type of record that’s sure to make your day worse, in the best way possible. It’s one of the heaviest and most unique sounding releases I’ve heard all year, and I’m very, very into it.

Check it out below, and order via Bandcamp.
