|Origin||Providence, Rhode Island, United States|
The Body is an American experimental metal duo that was formed in 1999 in Providence, Rhode Island by guitarist and vocalist, Chip King, and drummer/programmer Lee Buford. As of 2021, they have released eight solo full length albums as well as ten collaborative LPs, and one collaborative live album.
Drummer Lee Buford started the band with hometown friend Chip King after one year of school at the Museum School in Boston and moving to Manhattan in a four-month stint with Blue Man Group. They released their eponymous first full-length album in 2004. Six years of touring and small releases passed before they released their second full-length album, All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood, in collaboration with the Assembly of Light choir. This album was met with some critical acclaim. They followed this in 2011 with a full length collaboration with post-rock band Braveyoung, called Nothing Passes.
