Trace Amount - Anti Body Language

Trace Amount is a New York City industrial music project that was inspired by the harsh realities of life in the city during the COVID lockdowns. This new album Anti Body Language is a sort of twisted extension on that. It's a demented offering full of harsh beats and screamed vocals. It's an intensely personal record that leaves listeners gasping for air and curious for more. I don't find a lot of industrial music that resonates on the same level emotionally as this album, but it's a fascinating one to really let yourself get immersed in. 

The twisted magic of Anti Body Language comes in its ability to distill influences. Jazzy saxophones are contrasted with harsh beats, pulsating dancefloor rhythms lie underneath harsh metal vocals. The end result is a song that borders on the terrifying, that leaves listeners unsure where to go next but utterly terrified with the devilish hate that they have developed. It's a delight to let yourself get lost in this and experience the dark visions that Trace Amount paint for us. The art that comes out of this depressing tale of an experience that we all shared is fascinating and will keep listeners deeply engaged but horrified at the same time. 

Anti Body Language is an extremely valuable, if at times challenging listen. It's a record that really showcases the darker side of the artists psyche and encourages listeners to examine their own. The harsh beats and monochromatic soundscapes paint a weirdly vivid picture of life under COVID. Trace Amount has quickly become an impressive and mind melting project that leaves you in terror. For industrial fans it's a delight to get immersed in the darkness and the suffocating beauty that this project delivers. 

Pre-order the album!

  1. I was married at 32 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with his medicine, i collected his contact and explain my situation to him he prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe by him. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy. I have my baby august 2019 to get pregnant at age 35 with my 2nd child in September 2022, thank you sir , this is his email contact if you require his help or Facebook at priest.babaka
