If you call yourself a death metal fan, especially a connoisseur of the technical kind, and you are not familiar with Neuraxis, then shame on you. Simply put, Neuraxis were releasing kick ass tech-death when it wasn’t “cool” and the fact that they don’t seem to get the recognition that they deserve kind of boggles my mind. Neuraxis have proved, especially with 2005’s “Trilateral Progression” and it’s predecessor, 2002’s “Truth Beyond” that they are in fact leaders, not followers in the tech-death scene.
Asylon: Origin of the word asylum (ancient Greek). I only know this because the inside cover of “Asylon”, the sixth and newest release from French-Canadian, tech-death stalwarts Neuraxis, tells me so. A very fitting title, for after spending some time with “Asylon” my mind felt like an asylum might be in need of. Honestly folks, my opinion on “Asylon” has gone from mediocre, to thoroughly impressed, to finally landing somewhere in the middle of the two.
