The Body is an American sludge metal duo formed in 1999 in Providence, Rhode Island and composed of Chip King (guitar, vocals) and Lee Buford (drums, programming). By 2016 they have released five studio albums and a number of other records.

History[edit]

Drummer Lee Buford started the band with hometown friend Chip King after one year of school at the Museum School in Boston and moving to Manhattan in a four-month stint with the infamous "Blue Man Group". 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.[2][3] They followed this in 2011 with a full length collaboration with noise project Braveyoung, called Nothing Passes.
