The Body are an American sludge metal band, who were formed in 1999. They released their eponymous first full-length in 2004. Six years of touring and small releases passed before they released their second full-length album, All The Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood, in collaboration with the Assembly of Light choir. This album was met with some critical acclaim.[1][2] They followed this in 2011 with a full length collaboration with noise project Braveyoung, called Nothing Passes.[3][4]

Preparing for a new full-length release in fall 2013 through Thrill Jockey Records,[5] the Body released their new EP, Master, We Perish on April 30, 2013.[6][7][8]
