The metal experimentalists strike again.

The Body already took a crack at “the grossest pop album ever made” with this year’s excellent No One Deserves Happiness and now they’ve returned with a one-off single for Adult Swim’s singles series.

‘To Know And To Hide’ lurches on eerie synths and sluggish percussion before a crashing climax introduces screams that sound removed from most metal in their shrill agony. While the revelatory vocals of Humanbeast frontwoman and No One Deserves Happiness collaborator Maralie Armstrong-Rial are absent, it’s a reminder that The Body continue to find new ways to creep us out with every release.
