The Body Beneath releasing Rise of the Insidious with two shows this weekend
It’s not talked about nearly enough, but the Twin Cities have truly been a hotbed for some incredible technical death metal bands over the course of the last several years. Last year The Crinn were able to secure a recording deal with Nuclear Blast, earlier this year Iron Thrones self-released a new album to a national audience, and now the brutal death metal quintet known as The Body Beneath is poised to release a brand new EP of savage, shredding, blast-beat laden progressive death metal insanity. Rise of the Insidious is receiving a April 4th release via The Fifth Moon, and to support the release, The Body Beneath with be playing two shows – one at Station 4 on Friday and another at The Rox in St. Cloud on Saturday.
Rise of the Insidious is the first time that we’ve heard from The Body Beneath since their 2007 album Compelled to Suffer. Having now evolved far beyond being simply a With Dead Hands Rising off-shoot, The Body Beneath is sounding extremely confident and more capable than ever. Any hardcore influences are hard to detect on the preview tracks from Rise that are posted over at the band’s MySpace; instead its more of an onslaught of the most brutal sounds, taking cues from heavyweights like Hate Eternal, Krisiun, and Aborted. “Crushing all who oppose” is this band’s motto, and it’s an apt one. Really folks, this is some brutal metal!
