4.0 excellentAlabaster Jones | January 16th 17

The Body have always been one of the most forward-thinking sludge/doom acts or their time, putting out release after release of unnerving, depressing, hateful, and sometimes even the slightest bit hopeful droney doom. The use of choirs, strings, and operatic female vocals juxtaposed with nervous ambient drone, crushing sludge riffs, intensely plodding drums, and wailing vocals is in full effect on Christs, Redeemers. It may not be quite as dynamic as their last solo full-length, but what it lacks in that department it makes up for in palpable passion and a smothering atmosphere. In this regard, it is somewhat of a transitional album for the duo, who would strip down this formula even further on I Shall Die Here whilst cranking up the heaviness and the oppressive atmosphere. That said, this isn't some lukewarm mixture of the predecessor and successor, but rather an efficient and wonderfully well done concoction that stands on its own as an excellent release.

cool stuff, not what i was expecting, pleasantly surprised, sonically massive at times, graceful at times.
