When it comes to Rangda’s third album, The Heretic’s Bargain, Sir Richard Bishop, Ben Chasny, and Chris Corsano speak a business-as-usual musicianship. Rangda’s press release says different, “They planted a False Flag in the blood-soaked turf of the contemporary rock-politik. They were Formerly Extinct before you ever even THOUGHT about

2015 bore a lot of fruit for The Body: releasing three collaborative efforts (my personal favorite being ‘xoroAHbin’ with Vampillia), touring and recording with Full Of Hell, and recording a new solo album on top of it. How? How do you guys find all the creative energy and time to

Crushing waves of dirge are washing over me as I listen to their cover of Leonard Cohen’s “The Butcher” from the upcoming The Body and Full of Hell collabo album entitled One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache. What’s a trip about this tune is that it has a creepy as fuck Screaming Jay

Ahh, this is the kind of shit that should end up on a split 7″: two almost completely different bands – not more of the same, the space is limited, no one wants to hear more of the same. This is why this Palace of Worms / Thoabath split is so
