Oakland kvintetten Neurosis har siden 1985 været et helt unikt band, der har overskredet grænserne for enhver genre de har indvolveret sig i. Fra Hardcore og Crust punk til Doom Metal og Post-rock med elementer fra Dark Ambient, Industrial og folkemusik.

De har altid holdt sig i bevægelse, og er aldrig stoppet med at mutere og udvikle deres sangskrivning, lydbillede og udtryk i studiet såvel som live. Således står Neurosis i dag som et af de mest toneangivende bands indenfor den hårdere rock.

Sidste år udsendte Neurosis det monumentale ? og tiende ? album, ?Honor Found In Decay?, som fik fremragende anmeldelser over hele kloden og endte højt på utallige lister over årets bedste albums.



"It is the overwhelming physicality of their monolithic riffs that remains their most incisive musical tool. An underlying sense of disquiet and existential yearning has long thrummed at the heart of Neurosis, but even by their usual standards the grim restlessness of the opener, All Rage in Gold, packs a devastating punch. On the extraordinary dynamic peaks and troughs of At the Well, the band wield near-silence as a weapon, its unsettling fragility emerging from clouds of ugly distortion and snail's-pace tribal percussion. Similarly, the sprawling Casting of the Ages forces the subtle and the grotesque together in an exhilarating but doom-laden embrace. In less skilful hands, this relentless sonic oppression would be gruelling, but by expressing human frailty with such visceral abandon, Neurosis have once again turned darkness into euphoria." - 4/5 GUARDIAN

"Neurosis have taken a more complex route: skillfully weaving strains of folk, prog and even chilled ambience into their patented doom metal/hardcore tapestry and often obtaining staggering results in the process...Low poiints are refreshingly absent, while at the record's heart are two epic, 10 minute set pieces. The maximum heaviosity of Casting Of The Ages initially seems an impossible act to follow, yet the breathtaking, Porcupine Tree-style scope of My Heart For Deliverance manages it with style to spare, throwing down the gauntlet for all would-be-future-shaping rock'n'roll alchemists into the bargain." 4/5 RECORD COLLECTOR

"Craggy riffs and swathed in misty synthesiser, and a firm control of dynamics lend "Bleeding The Pigs" and "Casting Of The Ages" a compelling sense of ebb and flow, raging intensity giving way to sombre piano lamentations and vocalist Scott kelly's weathered, Tom Waits growl." - 8/10 UNCUT

"Another spiritual journey into the very heart of mankind. Completely and utterly mind-blowing." - METAL HAMMER

"The most stunning aspects of 'Honor Found In Decay' come from Neurosis' grasp of dynamics...as ever, in the hands of these uncompromising sorcerers, true heaviness can be as much about the directness as disorientation, and as much about the sinister rumble as an unearthly roar." - 5/5 TERRORIZER
