Vampillia and The Body are two creative forces that are
no strangers to the worlds of experimental and abrasive
music. Although both have touched upon various types of
metal styles in their previous works, also has each entity
shown an obvious penchant for compositions that lean
heavily into the worlds of electronics and experimental
music. On this LP, xoroAHbin, we sit between each of
those realms, experiencing them in equal parts.
Neither group is new to the collaboration game. Vampillia
counting Lustmord, Jarboe, Nadja, and -Ziq amongst
their past collaborators, while The Body has a
discography just as long and varied, with the likes of Thou,
Haxan Cloak, Full of Hell, Braveyoung, Krieg, and more.

Each track on xoroAHbin serves a narrative throughout
the 30-minute album. Distorted electronic rhythms surge
and create atmosphere as heavily-effected vocals and
guitar wail from the depths. Then give way to mellow
passages of strings and ambient tones, before surging
again with abrasive textures for which both Vampillia and
The Body are well-known.
