If you know either or both of Full of Hell and The Body, you’ll realise that this first-time collaboration cannot fail to be a scouring blast of sonic brutality. And so it came to pass: One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache is a furious explosion of screaming and distorted guitar power. Essential stuff for heaviness fans, on Neurot.

Giving grindcore their sternest glare, Full of Hell team up with doom pop stars the Body for a record of quite unkempt intensity, and it’s actually special: you might think otherwise considering the fact that the Body can and will collaborate with anybody at any time (I’m hoping and predicting that their next guest will be Grimes), but these acts have toured together and seem to share an unbridled enthusiasm for noise. Tinkering with some of the things they did with noise master Merzbow, Full of Hell offer a smattering of harsh noise for the Body’s puncture-drums and lowest-end chords to fixate on.
It’s called ‘One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache’ and it sounds like a demonstration -- the noise and its slow movements just is that aching, occasionally kindled with blastbeats as if they were a sudden outburst or an onsetting rash. Those who’ve heard the Body’s recent record, the fluorescent doom missive ‘Nobody Deserves Happiness’, will spot those high-pitched opera howls, and we’re also treated to skittering electronic beats and what sounds like vocoder-processed vocals. It’s easy to see both bands have long since ditched their original metal practices -- grinders and doomfolk respectively, you can only occasionally hear remnants of their initial sounds pushed through, such as on “World of Hope and No Pain” (though even then, Full of Hell have always scarred any blastbeat in noise, and do so here). With an openness to uncorking metal and doing lots of weird things with it, they create the year’s most terrifying record.
