The Body - All the Waters of the Earth Shall Turn to Blood (2010)

if Fuck Buttons made a hardcore album, it might sound like this. it draws you in until you're so focused on what's going on that you feel every shift in the music. each track features a unique element, and they don't beat you over the head with it like a lesser band would (check the sick stutter cuts in track 3). great sense of timing and restraint throughout - even the vocals are used well, for texture or emphasis. basically, you could write a master's thesis on how awesome this album is. definitely on my short list for album of the year.

Best of 2010

    i'm bad with genres. what would you call it? post-hardcore? i threw in a doom tag, but it basically sounds like puffed-up hardcore/metalcore to me
