The Body - All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood

Back in June, New York duo The Body released the incredible All The Waters of The Earth Turn to Blood. The album is not only one of the best metal album of the year but one one of the most original as well. The album throws just about every metal genre there is in to the mixing pot from Doom to Sludge to Black Metal. However, it also includes tons of elements outside of metal such as IDM style electronics, Post-Rock ambience and a 32 piece choir. However what makes this album so great, rather than the vast range of sources, is the natural beauty hidden behind the aggression of this album. What The Body have created here is a profound, powerful, emotional and truly underrated piece of art.  Check out the song A Curse below.
