And now breaking in to the top ten of this list! At the tenth spot, it's the self-titled debut full length album from the enigmatic Rhode Island two piece, The Body...Now, this album is deffinetly not the only one to make the list that is, let's say...less tied down where genres are concerned or questioned, and it certainly deserves a mention on this list even though the band themselves have since gone in a slightly more adventurous, experimental direction. Still, behind the simplicity of their early sound with their very sludge like tone drenched in feedback, topped of with deeply depressive misanthropic lyrics, their is a slightly more complex approach to the structuring of songs where you can hear perhaps the Neurosis influence. Yet The Body never seem to aim for a dreamy or spacey sound as heard with many Post-Metal bands, instead ditching that for a more constant, suffocating atmosphere throughout this albums entirety!...The Body released this album in 2004 and only 6 years later did they wait to unleash another full length on the world, which is something that probably helps to understand how by that second album, they had gone for a way more experimental and noisy sound as apposed to the minimalistic approach of their debut!...Today the band wouldn't really be as easy to place in the Post-Metal subcategory but certainly with this release of theirs there is no surprise there are some comparisons being made and not only that, but they deffinetly are not the only band for whom such comparisons have been made!
