The Body and Thou covered "Terrible Lie," one of the best inclusions in the Nine Inch Nails milestone release, Pretty Hate Machine. The electrified tension Trent Reznor was able to conjure back in 1989 has undergone an horrific, blood-chilling and brutal treatment with this rendition, which is featured in the groups' newest collaboration, You, Whom I Have Always Hated. The album will be out later this month.

The Body & Thou cover Terrible Lie (Nine Inch Nails)
Taken from new collaboration release "You, Whom I Have Always Hated" out 26th January
"Thou's Bryan Funck issues searing verses, while The Body's Chip King shrieks the "terrible lie" hook, until righteously dumb-as-hell breakdowns slam this industrial sad-bastard fest into the damn ground" - NPR
Thou, who are no strangers to covering songs (in the past they done Soundgarden, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Black Sabbath, Minor Threat) and this time along with The Body, they have reworked Nine Inch Nails' classic "Terrible Lie" into a ferocious and intense beast of a song. It's available on The Body and Thou's new collaborative release "You, Whom I Have Always Hated" (out on 26th January).
Just premiered on NPR Music, you can hear their version of Terrible Lie on Soundcloud below!
LISTEN: Terrible Lie:
The Body and Thou are bands with Southern US roots that have been pushing the boundaries of metal music for over a decade. Both have maintained relentless touring schedules, a dedication to DIY ethics & aesthetics, and a complete commitment to push their respective brands of extreme music into previously unexplored territories like no other bands in the genre. "You, Whom I Have Always Hated" is a new collaborative release that showcases both bands' unique abilities to create music that is emotionally effecting and unrelenting with its power.
The CD and digital versions of the release combine recordings by long time Thou engineer James Whitten (originally released only on LP as "Released From Love" on Vinyl Rites) and new material recorded by Seth Manchester and Keith Souza of Machines with Magnets, long-time engineers for The Body. The Body and Thou plan to reunite in the latter half of 2015 for some more touring shenanigans. Thou will be making an appearance at Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands this April.
