Search Results for "Neurosis"

Neurosis are (and always likely will be) the reigning post-metal champs, a term that falls far short of capturing a sound that reaches into the depths with claw tipped roots, crosses the oceans with the spirit of the wanderer and screams at the heavens as the vastness of the void evokes awe, fear and desire. The seeds of their future were first sewn on the long out of print The Word As Law, a record that has been their most underground classic for too long. Seriously, for the longest time my friend Matto from Peterwalkee Records was the only East Coast punk besides me I knew who had even heard it.

Today Neurosis are streaming the record in full on their bandcamp, remastered by Shellac’s Bob Weston and featuring updated and tweaked art from Josh Graham that fits in nicely next to their other reissues and current ‘look’. But again, they were already anticipating “Tomorrow’s Reality” and the record itself settles in perfectly in their development to the listener while able to hang toe to toe with ANY of this years often ‘so-called’ hardcore albums.

“To What End” alone is so ahead of the curve it is almost laughable how long it took many other bands to catch on. This record perfectly combines their early punk rage with a more experimental hardcore approach (def feel the Rudimentary Peni influence they always talk about on some of these numbers). Pretty sure this is the first one with Von Till and their are no keys but man, the cool guitar tones and those punk ass basslines slay. This record has so much to offer new generations and hopefully many people will discover it again.

Much like my favorite Beatles album Revolver, you can hear the band having breakthrough after breakthrough as artists in real time.

Oh yeah! Went to a great Murder By Death show last night and I’m opening for Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel tonight but thought I’d do a little Metal Riot work first. Such sweet news for this Friday to help you start your weekend right. This from camp Relapse just in:

As the next chapter in Relapse Records’ ongoing 25th anniversary commemoration, heavy music visionaries NEUROSIS will have two of their most revered and long out-of-print titles reissued on super deluxe 180-gram double vinyl this fall. Through Silver in Blood (1996), which Fact Magazine recently deemed the #1 best post-metal album of all time, has not been printed on vinyl in ten years, while Times of Grace (1999) is seeing its first pressing in over fifteen years. Additionally, Grace, the 1999 Tribes of Neurot companion piece to Times of Grace, will also see a deluxe Relapse reissue, its first time ever on vinyl.

Each reissue will contain reinterpretations of the original iconic artwork and will be housed in heavy duty “tip-on” jackets and will be available in a variety of limited edition exclusive colors. The reissues are set for worldwide release  September 4th  and will also include full album digital download codes. Preorders for all of the editions can be currently found HERE.

Neurosis confirm Heavy Montreal appearance

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, May 4, 2015 at 11:24 AM (PST)

753

Neurosis are arguably the band the most heavier leaning and cerebral artsy types can all agree on as outright kings in their field. The long running band of psychedelic tribal warriors were birthed from the Pain Of Mind political days but evolved over the years into nearly a force of nature themselves. We even gave their Honor Found In Decay record a five star review. Yep, there might as well be a fifth season called Neurosis. The band of deeply rooted punk metal elite champions will trek north to make an appearance at Heavy Montreal this year amidst a line-up including NOFX, Faith No More, Slipknot, Mr. Iggy Pop, Testament and Korn.

Neurot family welcomes Yob to label ranks

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, February 14, 2014 at 11:57 PM (PST)

Neurot Recordings is pleased to welcome long-running Eugene, Oregon-based doom metal trio, YOB, to their expanding household of eclectic, thought-provoking music. The band — founding vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt, drummer Travis Foster and bassist Aaron Rieseberg — will release their seventh studio offering this Fall preceded by an appearance at the illustrious Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, The Netherlands in April.

Comments Scheidt of the recent union,YOB is very happy to have signed to Neurot for our new album. Travis, Aaron and I agree that Neurosis is the epitome of forward-thinking heavy music, made with zero compromise. Our love for their music is total. Neurot’s dedication to putting out uncompromising music is no different. To have this opportunity to put an album out on their label is an honor that runs deep. We cannot wait to share our new music with Neurot and our friends worldwide.

Neurosis’ Steve Von Till notes, “This was meant to be. Neurot has always sought out to work with those who share in the purification of spirit through sound and who harvest their sound from originality and intensity. When I listen to YOB, see them leave it all on the stage, or share a  conversation with them about life,  I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that they embody what Neurot stands for completely and we are so very honored that we get the opportunity to work together with them on their next album.”

 Adds Scott Kelly, YOB, as with all things that actually matter, there is only one. They have built their temple with a foundation concreted in absolute truth. The truth is the riffs, the truth is in the delivery, it’s in the unwavering commitment, and in the handshake and the look in their eyes. If you don’t know them, then you are fucking up your own lifes’ truth. There’s is nothing heavier on the face of this earth than this band. The Neurot Family is honored to be a part of legacy of this, the monolithic treasure of sonic achievement that is YOB.”

Album Review: Neurosis – Honor Found In Decay

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 7:17 AM (PST)

Neurosis keeps on giving, but they are doing it on their terms. This is not music for the sake of contractual obligations. It is closest in kinship to the true hardcore punk sense of “lifestyle”, with the band embodying the principles of integrity, community, evolution and success on their own terms. Take any Neurosis classic, from Times Of Grace to Sovereign to Through Silver In Blood, and you will be privy to musical soul searching of the highest magnitude. There are few bands that you can actually HEAR have mental breakthroughs on album.

“All Is Found…In Time”, one of the standout tracks from the new Neurosis album Honor Found In Decay, could just as well serve as a summary of the band’s philosophy. Through constant digging, trudging through darkness, catharsis and into blessed gnosis, the band manages to leave no stone unturned. This is not to imply that they genre hop like crazy time signature giddy college kids who just discovered Dillinger and Behold…The Arctopus. Of course not! What I plainly mean is that every record is a voyage, a harrowing of hells and a celebration of victories. The dedicated faithful listeners are rewarded with a passenger seat view of the trip and insight into one of the great “glass onion” bands in metal.

Neurosis release video trailer for upcoming album “Honor Found In Decay”

Posted by Fireball13 on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 8:17 AM (PST)

California doom metallers Neurosis have released a video trailer for their upcoming tenth studio album Honor Found In Decay.  You can check it out right here.

The video trailer was created by video architect Kenneth Thomas, also responsible for producing the mini-documentary for the band’s 2007 release, Given To The Rising. The intense look into the new album features details of its layout hand-crafted by the band’s visual specialist Josh Graham, personal commentary from guitarists/vocalists Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till on the creation of the album as well as the first brief moments of audio to be publicly unleashed.

In the early moments of the preview, Steve Von Till states, “A legacy can only be assured if we continually burn down the past and plant seeds in the ashes to grow new, greater things.” Scott Kelly adds, “If you don’t make a record that you think eclipses your previous record, then… you’ve failed.”

The album is slated to be released in Germany on October 26th, in the rest of Europe on October 29th and in North America on October 30th via the band’s own Neurot Recordings, with their cohorts at previous label home Relapse Records confirmed to handle the vinyl release of the album.
