Neurosis Albums From Worst To Best

My favorite photograph of Neurosis is the one posted on their Wikipedia entry. It’s a grainy shot of the band performing in Seattle in 2008. You can make out the band members, but only just. The blue-white eclipse projected on the wall behind them washes out their features.

It’s a great picture, despite… More »

Stream Neurosis Honor Found In Decay

Tomorrow, Bay Area slow-build metal gods Neurosis will release their bleak, apocalyptic new album Honor Found In Decay, their first full-length since 2007’s Given To The Rising. We’ve already posted opening track “We All Rage In Gold,” and now you no longer have to accept my word that the rest of the album fucking rules. More »

Neurosis – “We All Rage In Gold”

Every new Neurosis release is cause for celebration; over the last quarter-century, the band has built one of the strongest catalogs in heavy music and, really, changed the course of metal, slowing it down to the cadence of an underwater war march, adding elements of goth, industrial, and post-punk. There aren’t many bands that ca… More »

Neurosis Honor Found In Decay Trailer

Slow-churning Bay Area metal folk heroes Neurosis haven’t released an album since 2007’s great Given To The Rising, and they’ll finally make their grand return this fall with a new one called Honor Found In Decay. If you’re already a part of their cult, that’s awesome news. If you’re not, allow me to direct your… More »

The Top 20 Steve Albini-Recorded Albums

Infamously cantankerous studio rat/national treasure Steve Albini doesn’t like to be called a record producer. He prefers the term “recording engineer.” That’s a dry, clinical term for what Albini actually does, but it makes sense that he’d prefer to be seen that way. Over the past few decades, Albini has overseen the creation of countle… More »

Mastodon – “Spectrelight”

Georgia metal demigods Mastodon have already shared “Black Tongue” and “Curl Of The Burl,” two tracks from their new album The Hunter, and now they’ve dropped another one via kaleidoscopic YouTube video. The song is called “Spectrelight,” and it’s closer to the mercilessly stomping Mastodon of the Leviathan era than those other two songs are. More »

A Storm Of Light – “Missing” (Feat. Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil & Nerissa Campbell)

(Instead of doing… More »

Stream Mastodon’s Crack The Skye

Crack The Skye’s clearly the least immediate release in Mastodon’s oeuvre. Which isn’t to say it’s bad. It just takes a few more close listenings (and, as you’ll soon discover, an acceptance of their increased progginess). Instead of the raw crustiness you found, even amid the most ambitious arcs of Remission, Leviathan, and Blood Mountain,… More »
