On the heels of their monolithic collaborative LP Mental Wounds Not Healing,
the collaboration between industrial-noise post-everything bands Uniform &
The Body returns with a second entry, Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back.
Comprised of an amalgam of abrasive influence that spans Swans-y dirge and
purge, Whitehouse’s clenched-jaw noise, middle-period Ministry’s penchant for
metallic post-industrial everything, New Order’s nose for melodic emotionality,
and Juicy J-inspired beats, Uniform & The Body’s approach delves deeper down
the rabbit hole than before, igniting a sonic world of terror and bliss poised to
grip the throats of fans yet again. Prepare for a record that the band self-describes
as “the middle ground between Robyn and Corrupted, but weirder.”
Much like the collective’s bombastic debut, Everything was built over a series of
collaborative sessions with Seth Manchester at Machines with Magnets in Rhode
Island, mixing industrial-influenced synths, squalls of harsh noise, manipulated
guitar, oodles of samples along with hard rock-inspired riffs, saccharine pop, and
the alternately antagonistic and harrowing vocals of Michael Berdan and Chip
King. The result is nine tracks of ear-bleeding and confrontational fury with
defined moments of beauty that bring to mind equal parts No Trend, Merzbow,
and Information Society while forging a path that is distinctly their own.
Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back is specifically culled from the immortal
Bruce Springsteen effort Nebraska, joining a long line of literary and cinematic
references that pepper the album. And while the title is specific to that lyric, the
sentiment also ties into author James Elroy and his notion that closure is an
illusion, a conclusion found in his 1996 effort My Dark Places. Dealing with tragic
loss is never a closed book, and the details, circumstances, and inherent emotions
that surround coping never end, they just morph into something else, only to rear
their ugly head again later in life.
