Frail Body is a hardcore/punk band from Rockford, IL that embodies the spirit and soul of what many define as "screamo". "A Brief Memoriam" combines a new four-song recording session with their sought after "At Peace" session into one proper album. Both sessions were recorded by engineer Zack Farrar at Choir Room Audio.
A-side opener "Pastel" erupts with unhinged emotion driven by discordant guitars and hyper-speed drumming. This leads to the powerful "Your Death Makes Me Wish Heaven Was Real" a moving song of mourning and remembrance. "Aperture" then explores concepts of identity and growth amid a tangle of beautiful musical debris. Lastly, the poignant "Tradition in Verses" unfurls with a ground shaking emotion that is hard to capture in words. The B-side of "A Brief Memoriam" is comprised of their incredible "At Peace" session; a recording that shows Frail Body even in their earliest state was a heartfelt, creative force.
