Search Results for "Neurot Recordings"

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.

Sera Timms’ BLACK MARE to release album, tour with Junius soon

Posted by Metal Riot on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 5:10 AM (PST)
Amidst a backdrop of political strife wherein such fundamental principles as the health, safety, and common decency toward women continue to erode more with each executive order and Twitter fit, the spirit of BLACK MARE stands unbridled under the singular vision and limitless purview of its driving force, one Sera Timms.

Death Magick Mother is the second proper full length album from Los Angeles, California’s BLACK MARE. Seven songs in length, this documentation captures Timms amidst a dynamic cohesion and confluence of inspiration unlike any prior. Whereas previous output operated under a founding principle of rhythmic repetition and atmospheric simplicity toward trace-like escapism, Death Magick Mother is Timms stepping right in front of the lens for a closeup. Mixed by Andrew Clinco of Drab Majesty and mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering, bolder arrangements lend themselves toward soaring, dynamic vocal melodies and nuanced harmonization to highly-satisfying effect. Spot-on performances and command of all instrumentation across the spectrum further propels the sense of arrival in mastery over her chosen craft. In many ways, this album is an awakening for both its creator and listeners alike.

Death Magick Mother will see release digitally via Magic Bullet on September 15th with LPs to follow. Preorders are currently available at THIS LOCATION.

Yob to return to the stage this weekend at Northwest Terror Fest

Posted by Metal Riot on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 12:50 PM (PST)
Cosmic doom trio YOB will make their return to the stage this week at the Northwest Terror Fest in Seattle, Washington alongside Coven, Cephalic Carnage, Wolves In The Throne Room, and so many others. The performance serves as guitarist/vocalist Mike Scheidt’s first show since undergoing emergency diverticulitis surgery earlier this year. Diverticulitis is an inflammation of the digestive tract and is often life-threatening.

 

Said Scheidt in a recent Facebook post to fans, “…Everything is different on my insides, and I’m learning to adjust to both healing pains and new normals. Time will tell which is which. All the same, slow and steady is my mantra. I have a feeling of gratitude that is consistent, and we’re writing so much new music with YOB that I don’t know how we’re going to distill it all… I wish nothing but love and health, laughs and inspiration for our shared, diverse, unique tribe. For those who have sent me messages, shared love, their time and help with my survival during these trials of mine, I remain ever thankful and count myself as beyond lucky. My ability to weather all of this and continue working is framed by these blessings. We are so looking forward to these shows…seeing friends, watching bands, and getting to share the stage. It’s surreal to be able to do it again. Can’t wait.”

Multi-instrumentalist, song writer, and audio engineer THOMAS ANDREW DOYLE (TAD, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Hog Molly) will unveil the cinematic sounds of his Incineration Ceremony full-length via Yuggoth Records. Set for release May 16th, the adventurous nine-track offering is a return to roots of sorts for DOYLE.

 

Spending his formative years in music playing in jazz clubs while attending school studying classical and jazz music at Boise State University, DOYLE comes forth with a symphonic take on what is going on in his head. Spawned from the dark and dreary recesses of DOYLE‘s psyche comes an immense sound of textures, rhythms, and material suitable for film and standalone listening, disquieting all who are within an earshot.

 

People familiar with DOYLE‘s manifestations should expect the unexpected. DOYLE‘s entry into the world of symphonic composition is no novice beginner’s attempt. Incineration Ceremony is a musical journeyman’s expression that is genuine, heartfelt, honest, uncompromising, and authoritative.

Review: Corrections House – “Know How To Carry A Whip”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at 9:00 AM (PST)

CH_KHTCAW_ALBUMMINI

Corrections House don’t care about your feelings.

“Go back from whence you came and tie your shoes correctly this time”.

When the dust settles from listening to this new record, you won’t know if you have PTSD, are inspired or are a masochist.

Industrial influenced metal and punk has really made something of a tiny yet formidable comeback via acts like the brilliant UK act Hateful Abandon, France’s Crown, the doomy studio project Culted and the U.S.A.’s own vital, machine building, pacifist madman Author & Punisher or my pal Jay Gambit’s Crowhurst.

Even Nergal has been getting into Youth Code and it’s a good time to feel bleak and alive. Circle Of Animals was a cool record and even Ministry has had some solid late career surprises amidst their more speed metal direction, Theologian and Prurient thrill but the genre was mostly wheezing on paint fumes compared to other styles like thrash, death and metalcore which the public has clamored for more recently. That said, this shit is never gonna become standard mall kid fare, ever. Not unless Bladerunner ever really arrives in full.

Correction’s House return with sophomore album.

“Who made Hell… Hell made Who…” – “I Was Never Good At Meth,” CORRECTIONS HOUSE

 

CORRECTIONS HOUSE will unleash their long-anticipated, sophomore full-length, Know How To Carry A Whip, this October via Neurot Recordings. Darker, denser, and more despairing than their 2013-issued Last City Zero predecessor, the nine-track, forty-five-minute audio apocalypse was captured by the band’s own Sanford Parker (Minsk) and recently institutionalized minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury, in Vietnam. The record boasts a guest appearance by Negative Soldier and finds CORRECTIONS HOUSE – which features the fiery lineup of Parker, Fairbury, Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) and Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod) — at their most punishing, painting electronic mosaics of deviance and decadence with brushes made of bristles of the damned.

 

Immersed in experiences of longing and loneliness from the depths of their collectively decaying hearts, each movement contained within CORRECTIONS HOUSE’s Know How To Carry A Whip reveals a new, unsettling sentiment of danger, paranoia and looming defeat. An underlying theme of confinement and release bridges each track. Atmospheric and haunting; hypnotic and pulsing, songs writhe and wither, decay and peel. Distorted, doomed and oft static sodden, discordant and tribal, twined around Williams’ unassailable manic street preacher prose and intermittently juxtaposed by the smooth, cradling sounds of Lamont’s lingering saxophone, Know How To Carry A Whip is at once bleak, grey, glacially devastating and metaphysically cathartic. “The music is simultaneously suffocating and freeing,” expounds Kelly, “but it also has the energy of a whirling dervish.”

 

In a rare, lucid skype transmission from the mental facility in which he currently resides. Fairbury further elaborates of the production, “the songs typically originate from the loops and beats that are generated from Sanford, then the skeleton of riffs are built by Scott and Bruce. Mike IX adds his profound observations and I do the final production. These new songs are far more developed and fluid then the first record. There is a prevailing groove that dominates.”

 

(Fairbury, who was missing briefly last year, obsessed with seeking clarity and understanding beyond Who, What and Why we are to ultimately expose The Truth, continues his downward spiral towards madness and despair. Allegedly plotting an elaborate escape, Fairbury plans to rejoin CORRECTIONS HOUSE in their systematic propagation of auditory abuse later this year.)

Neurosis amazing vinyl reissues

b563609d-cf6f-4a6d-89bc-8872a421a70c

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.

Ides Of Gemini just sadly had to cancel their support slot on the Mountain Goats tour but if you listen to unstoppable new single “Carthage” you’d never assume there was any force capable of stopping the iron backbone in this music. CVLT Nation has the stream HERE. Seriously, when the heavier guitars first kick in I dare you not to have at least a tiny orgasm.

I just smoked a bowl and watched the half of The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies I had yet to see to celebrate Earth Day, after spending my afternoon in Woodstock, NY watching His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje (the peace advocate who the Chinese didn’t want to be allowed to speak to American students here for fear his message would spread), tell a warm and jubilant crowd that Woodstock’s hippies are similar to most Tibetan saints in “loving nature and unity”.  This “Carthage” track is about all I could have hoped to follow up such a day of sweeping fantasy cinema and my earlier outside spiritual afternoon revelation amongst like minded folk who care and know that compassion is a tougher face to wear than hate.

“Carthage” is full of resolve and beauty as well as a feeling of sorrow and somber, intricate textures. But the main thing is a stomping near grunge metal riff and soaring melodic banshee cries. It is the A side of their Record Store Day vinyl (the B side is a cover of “Strange Fruit” that will drop you to your knees). Head over to CVLT Nation and tell ’em Metal Riot sent ya.

Oh, such a shame.

Due to a medical injury sustained by drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson, West Coast sound enigmas, IDES OF GEMINI — who are currently in the midst of a tour with acclaimed indie rock unit, the Mountain Goats — are unable to play their forthcoming New York shows.

In an official band statement: “Due to Kelly’s injury, we will be unable to play the scheduled NYC shows with the Mountain Goats at Webster Hall (tonight) and the City Winery (Saturday and Sunday), as well as our scheduled headlining show at Saint Vitus Friday with Kosmodemonic and Steve Brodsky. With a few days of rest and a little luck, we’re hoping we can rejoin the Mountain Goats tour in Philadelphia on Monday night.”

Hopes for a speedy turn around. Great band. Their Magic Bullet Records new 2 song “Carthage/ Strange Fruit”- which is out April 18th for Record Store Day- is insanely gothy, triumphant and majestically good. I heard an advance.All copies are pressed on limited edition, one-time-only runs of clear and black vinyl. The title goes immediately out-of-print after Record Store Day. Exclusive cover art by Jas Helena (seen above), and music that will stay with your for possibly ever.

IDES OF GEMINI have announced additional dates in support of their Chris Rakestraw (Danzig)-produced Old World New Wave full-length released in September via Neurot Recordings. Read a full length interview on the record HERE.

When asked about his aspirations  for the band’s live performances last year, J. Bennett told me, “Definitely better. Hopefully bigger. I want it to be a real spectacle, with pyro and lasers and flying unicorns and shit, but I’m guessing I’ll get outvoted on that score.”
