Dope Body have built their name in the underground with intense live performances of their intense studio recordings. On the back of their second album, 2012’s Natural History, they embarked on a rigorous nineteen months of almost nonstop touring, bringing their individual performance stomp to every bar, basement and backyard that asked for it.
It’s easy to picture the members of Dope Body emerging from their distant and hidden cave of rock with a new wave of grimey, Sabbath-refracted mayhem in order to torch Earth once again — but they’re actually a group of trained players and fine artists with vision. On Lifer, released October 2014, Dope Body redefines the aural yawp they have been venting for some time, honing wild windmills into surgical strikes, their gut-busting repulsion-sound continuing to expand without losing any of the feral energy that made a crazed reputation in the already-insane Baltimore music and arts underground.
Lifer juggles the rough spark of Dope Body’s sound, shuffling slow burners and their previously (and righteously!) established propulsive attack, making for a new yet satisfyingly heavy trip into the heart of Dope Body.
