Neurosis are a sludge metal/post-metal band, based in Oakland, California. Forming in 1985 initially as a hardcore punk band for their first two albums. Chad Salter joined as a second guitarist and appeared on the band's 1987 debut Pain of Mind before being replaced by Steve Von Till in 1989. The following year, the lineup further expanded to include a keyboardist and a visual artist. Beginning with their third album Souls at Zero (1992), Neurosis transformed their hardcore sound by incorporating diverse influences including doom metal, dark ambient and industrial. The band in essence is distinctive and thus difficult to categorize, with guitarist/vocalist Steve Von Till stating in a 2016 interview that he feels the band "don't feel like we're in a genre" and that "it seems pointless to try and define things the way we often feel reduced to.".[1]

Neurosis, along with being a major influence on the sludge genre, are also considered to be major pioneers of the "post-metal" subgenre, and by many, considered to be one of the first bands to play this sub-genre of hardcore and metal. In regards to the band's influences, Scott Kelly would state the following in a 2000 interview: "Mainly ourselves at this point, but our foundation ranges through Black Flag, Pink Floyd, Die Kreuzen, Amebix, Jimi Hendrix, King Crimson, The Melvins, Celtic Frost and, of course, Hank Williams."[2] In 2007, Steve Von Till stated that lyrically he and Kelly are inspired by literature, alluding to writers such as Cormac McCarthy, Jack London, and Paul Bowles.[3]

Neurosis also attained notoriety for their intense live shows, notable for their live visuals and the total lack of stage banter with the audience. To date the band have released eleven studio albums through a variety of labels including Relapse Records, Alternative Tentacles and their own label Neurot Recordings. Along with their main studio works the band has released a handful of EPs and a collaborative effort with former Swans vocalist Jarboe among music from their experimental/dark ambient alter-ego Tribes of Neurot. Neurosis have performed at a wide range of locations throughout the world, be it their early touring years or later on as a sporadically touring marquee band.

History[edit | edit source]

Formation, Pain of Mind and The Word Is Law (1985 - 1990)[edit | edit source]

Neurosis would be founded in late 1985 by Dave Edwardson, Jason Roeder and Scott Kelly. Prior to the band's formation the trio had played in a hardcore punk band known as Violent Coercion. Neurosis' sound in their formative years continued the hardcore punk theme, with elements of crossover and crust punk, drawing influence from the likes of Black Sabbath, Crass, Amebix, Discharge and Rudimentary Peni.[4][5] In their early years the band played with punk and hardcore bands such as Christ on Parade, 7 Seconds, Econochrist, Spitboy and The Adolescents among others.[6]

Not long after forming Chad Salter would join in 1986 as a second guitarist and vocalist. This quartet lineup would largely perform in California, recording a demo and eventually releasing a debut album in Pain of Mind via Alchemy Records (A label owned by Mark Deutrom) in 1988.[7] An EP in Aberration would follow circa January 1989 but not long after it's release Salter would leave the band with Steve Von Till (Transgressor, Peace Test, Tribe of Resistance) taking his place. In an interview with Revolver Magazine Scott Kelly would explain the events leading to Steve Von Till joining Neurosis:

"Right after my oldest child Damon was born we were playing this show at the Gilman St. project in Berkeley. Damon's mon... Something had happened, I don't know if somebody broke into our car or what it was but she had come into the club with Damon and she was trying to get my attention. This guy like, just jumped up on stage and ran over and stage dived right onto my kid when he was like eleven months old. But I remember looking into the audience and just seeing this guy grab the guy around the throat and just start fucking strangling him, y'know.

Flash-forward six months or a year later when we're looking for a second guitarist and Dave's like "I know this guy Steve.". So we went down to Steve's house to see what he was all about. We walked in and there's this guy. The guy who strangled the guy who accidentally jumped on my kid. So you know it's kind of like one of those moments where you're like "Yeah, this is our guy."."

— Scott Kelly, Revolver[8]

Signing with Lookout Records and recording in December 1989 with synthesizer player Simon McIlroy, the quartet would release a second album in The Word As Law circa 1 June 1990. The band's sound began to incorporate longer songs and already expanding beyond their crusty hardcore sound.[9] In the same sessions the band recorded a cover of "Day of The Lords" by Joy Division and a series of Discharge covers for a split tribute 7". Notably when McIlroy joined a close friend of his in Adam Kendall would also join to provide visuals, having played in experimental projects prior).[10]

Alternative Tentacles: Souls at Zero and Enemy of The Sun (1991 - 1995)[edit | edit source]

Following touring through the Midwest and the East Coast in support of The Word as Law, Neurosis would begin work on a new album. Signing to Jello Biafra's label Alternative Tentacles, the band would begin exploring new sounds, experimenting with new styles of playing while attaining multitudes of footage for visual displays to compliment their ever-changing live experience. The band also would draw heavily from the likes of Joy Division, Coil and Throbbing Gristle, along with the 1973 film "The Wicker Man". The band would even make their own straw effigy for the album cover.[11] In an interview with Invisible Oranges, Steve Von Till would explain the band's evolution in sound and the process in making Souls at Zero:

"[On recording the album] I assume it was probably about 1991. I know we demoed some songs first. We toured with the The Word as Law quite a bit, but we realized that some of the sounds we wanted couldn't be produced by a guitar. We needed to bring in new elements.

We started to pay attention to what Coil and Throbbing Gristle were doing. There was a whole sound palate outside of traditional instruments. We heard about people using samplers and wondered if we could do it. If you wanted to make your music sound like a train crash, you could get a sampler and make the train crash. Why not have sounds of the environment and beasts and nature all be part of your palate? There wasn't anyone playing like that. We found a guy who was into goth and had a synthesizer and sampler and we dove in. We tried every cliché in the book.

[On creating the immersive experience] Absolutely. It's when we started using visual projections and borrowing ideas from psychology about using archetypes, throwing them so rapidly at people that you break them down. We wanted to use the technique to being the audience where we were. We became the medium for the music. We borrowed a little bit from 1960s psychedelia. We raided all this (film) footage from the past 40 years because we didn’t know how to do it. Pain of Mind and The Word as Law were steps, but Souls is where we pushed the doors wide open.

Still, it was a baby step because we hadn't learned the biggest lesson. The biggest lesson came on tour when we realized we were too caught up in our heads and too technical. We needed to have out-of-body musical experiences, [to] almost make trance music. But we didn't need to create it cerebrally. If we surrendered, it would flow. That’s the lesson we learned touring the material.

[On The Wicker Man] I was obsessed with the movie. It seemed in line with my spiritual views and with the trancelike nature of the music and where we were going with honoring things from a time long gone. We wanted to use a still from the movie, but we couldn't without paying a few thousand dollars. So we got together a bunch of guys and built our own Wicker Man and took it out to the beach at Santa Cruz and burned it. We had a bunch of friends with cameras. Right before the damn thing fell over we got the picture we needed."

— Steve Von Till, Invisible Oranges[12]

With signs of their drastically changing sound indicated by their radically re-imagined cover of "Saturday Night Holocaust" of the Dead Kennedys on Virus 100 (Released circa 1 May 1992), Souls at Zero would see release on 19 May 1992, displaying a sound drawing elements of doom metal, industrial, psychedelic, folk and post-punk. Ultimately Souls at Zero would attain universal acclaim upon retroactive observation and, along with being cited as influential to the then-developing sludge genre, would be cited as a pioneering album in post-metal.[13][14][15]

Neurosis would tour to support the album, including their first ever shows in Europe. Working with engineer Billy Anderson, work would quickly begin on a follow-up. Drawing in more tribal elements and more samples to further expand on this ever-evolving sound,[16] Enemy of The Sun would see release circa 17 August 1993. The band would begin touring heavily to support Enemy of the Sun through North America and Europe. Like Souls at Zero, retroactive praise for Enemy of the Sun has been universal, with The Quietus observing that "at the time few could have predicted this black hole of agonizingly precise metal riffs, unnerving backmasking, industrial folkisms and extensive sampling".[17] The band would also form a project known as Tribes of Neurot which would see the core members of Neurosis exploring dark ambiance, field recordings and sonic experiments as a sister project to Neurosis.

Following touring in support of the album McIlroy would quit music entirely[18] and a childhood friend of Dave Edwardson in Noah Landis would take over on keyboards and effects. The band would also sign with Relapse Recordings when searching for a label for Tribes of Neurot and thus would sign with the label.[19]

The Relapse Years and Neurot Recordings (1996 - 2002)[edit | edit source]

With a new label and a bigger audience ahead of them, Neurosis would record at Brilliant Studios and Coast Studios in Oakland, California in December 1995, working again with producer Billy Anderson. Through Silver In Blood would see release on 23 April 1996 to critical praise at the time of release, over time attaining universal praise[20] and cited as an important album in the development of post-metal and sludge genres. Terrorizer would rank it #2 among the heaviest albums ever made[21] while Fact Magazine would cite it as the greatest post-metal album of all time.[22]

In a 1996 interview with Chronicles of Chaos, bassist Dave Edwardson would go into the challenges of making Through Silver in Blood:

"The process was a lot more natural and that was something that we had started to experience on the last record. We didn't have to be more cerebral, we could actually be more gut with the way it came out and trusting the engineer we were working with. We basically knew what we were going for. I'd say this record is more of an epic undertaking than the last one. We know how to get a lot more out of one note these days and we are a lot more trance-oriented in our music as far as wanting it to be overwhelming and aggressive but at a constant flow. We were trying to develop a record that was like one song that actually means more from the beginning to the end than it does individually.

[On songwriting] It has always been personal. Strictly personal. We could give a fuck what anyone else thinks. It sounds like a cliche statement but when you put your full emotion into anything you couldn't care less what anyone else thinks. We really want to be raw when we do stuff. We are used to turning our fans off. Our first record was a punk rock record so when we added metal on the second one we lost some of our hardcore/punk fans. We shocked the shit out of them with the next record when we added keyboards and samples. When people thought we were gonna go prog-rock, we came out with _Enemy Of The Sun_ which was a sludge/tribal-fest, and the new one is an amalgamation of all of the above, and where we are at right now. We always lose somebody but that is probably because they are close-minded or it might not be their taste. If someone is adamantly against it, then the poor bastard must have some confines on their beliefs."

— Dave Edwardson, Chronicles of Chaos[23]

To support Through Silver in Blood Neurosis would tour through North America and Europe, along with appearing at the inaugural OzzFest. Pantera would contact the band in regards to touring together the next year as they were fans of the group, with Phil Anselmo citing them as "the most dangerous band in the world". That January Neurosis would tour with Clutch and Pantera through North America, followed by a full tour at OzzFest.[24][25] The band would close out the year touring Europe with Entombed. In 1998 Neurosis would tour Europe again, sharing the stage with the likes of Pantera, Coal Chamber, Helloween and Black Sabbath.

Following the 1998 European tour and a North American tour, Neurosis would begin work on their sixth album that October and November. It would be the first album the band would record at Electrical Audio, beginning a working relationship with Steve Albini that would maintain for every subsequent album. Times of Grace would see release on 4 May 1999 to critical praise, in particular the production of Albini.[26] Critics such as NME,[27] BBC[28] and A.V. Club[29] would all praise the album. Tribes of Neurot would release a complimentary album entitled Grace on 13 July 1999, created in concept to be played simultaneously with Times of Grace to compose a multi-dimensional sound experience. Neurosis would tour heavily in support of Times of Grace, sharing the stage with the likes of Hatebreed, Skinlab, Cave-In, Today is The Day and Voivod among others.

In the late 1990s the band would begin to officially establish a label known as Neurot Recordings means to further their musical vision while achieving control of their own destiny.[30] Through the 1990s the label largely put out releases by Tribes of Neurot but would eventually sign other bands and, once Neurosis' contract with Relapse had finished, would begin releasing their own works through the label. Aside from re-issues of early albums and a bootleg known as Short wave Warfare, Neurosis' first studio release through Neurot would be Soveriegn circa 31 October 2000.[31] Along with Neurosis and the members' respective side projects the label would begin to sign more acts, eventually attaining distribution through Southern Records and Revolver USA. Josh Graham would also notably join as visual artist in 2000.

Neurosis would largely take off from touring to concentrate on their next album, working again with Steve Albini and finishing it by the Spring of 2001.[32] A Sun That Never Sets would see release on 7 August 2001, noting a shift in the band's sound. Neurosis began incorporating more clean vocals and acoustic instrumentation with a growing folk music influence, more noted presence of classical string instruments as well as slower tempos and a more contemplative sound. A visual DVD was also composed to compliment the audio release. A Sun That Never Sets would see generally positive reception both at the time of it's release[33][34] and retroactively.[35][36]

Neurosis would only perform a handful of shows throughout 2001, namely with the likes of Botch and Shellac, while 2002 would prove equally sporadic with a handful of shows, namely the 2002 edition of Beyond The Pale.[37] Notably along with Tribes of Neurot, the respective members of Neurosis would embark on new side projects and careers among their main band, Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till both releasing solo albums in between their respective personal endeavors.[38]

Collaborations and The Eye of Every Storm (2003 - 2006)[edit | edit source]

With Neurosis leaving Relapse and focusing entirely on releasing through Neurot, the band would re-issue some of their early works on the label in the early 2000s. Having performed with former Swans vocalist Jarboe at Beyond The Pale, the two artist would collaborate together for a studio album. Neurosis & Jarboe would see release on 21 October 2003 to critical praise. Around the same time as the collaborative album would see release, Neurosis would begin recording a new studio album at Electrical Audio,[39] finishing it by January 2004.[40]

The Eye of Every Storm would see release on 28 June 2004, the band's first album being released through Neurot. Notably it would continue on the folk themes established on The Eye of Every Storm but push into different musical territories, incorporating more ambient tones and eliciting a sound similar to post-rock. The Eye of Every Storm would see positive reception from several critics such as Pop Matters,[41] Your Last Rites,[42] Scene Point Blank[43] and Pitchfork[44] to name a few. To support the album Neurosis would play four dates, featuring Jarboe and spanning 2 1/2 hours with no openers.[45] Following an appearance at Fury Fest in France circa 2005[46] and a string of shows in 2006 with Grails and Grey Daturas, work would begin on the next album, recording at the end of 2006 at Electrical Audio.[47]

Given to The Rising and Honor Found in Decay (2007 - 2015)[edit | edit source]

Recording and mixing at Electrical Audio in just six days[48] and following with a string of shows in California, details on Neurosis' ninth album would surface.[49] Returning to a heavier direction, Given To The Rising would see release on 8 May 2007 to widespread critical acclaim.[50][51][52][53] Along with critical acclaim, Given To The Rising would also chart in the United States for the first time, peaking at #31 on the Heatseekers.[54]

To support Given To The Rising Neurosis would make a headlining appearance at Roadburn Festival, followed by appearances at Hellfest, Hovefestivalen and FunFunFun Fest. Following a string of short winter residencies sharing the stage with the likes of Converge and Mastodon, Neurosis would tour Europe again that Summer, touring with A Storm of Light and appearing in seven different countries.

In 2009, following an appearance at Scion RockFest.[55] Neurosis would return to Roadburn Festival. Along with performing the band would also serve as that year's curator with their theme of "Beyond The Pale", including several of the band's side projects and bands associated with Neurot Recordings.[56][57] The band also toured through Europe alongside Amenra. In an interview with Brooklyn Vegan, Scott Kelly would explain the sudden resurgence of European touring and the band's sporadic performing schedule:

"It's always possible, as far as a larger scale tour is concerned. I mean, we all work and have got a gang of kids so it's difficult. The kids are the priority as far as touring goes so it's totally possible that things in the future will happen that way, you know. Europe was the first place ever gave a shit about us, outside of Seattle and San Francisco. So we go back there and it's a comfortable place for us. It's also easier to get around there. In the US, you are fucking driving forever and that's difficult when you have limited timeframes like we have to deal with. We tend to hit and run in the states right now. I don't know, well see. We have definitely talked about it. When we initially stopped, we came off the road for about two years and we hadn't gone to Europe for almost seven years. It's only been recently that we've started going back over there... the only dates we were doing were in the states for quite a while. We're going to Finland and stuff... we've never been there. We just try and find interesting gigs to do... doing something different is what interests us now."
— Scott Kelly, Brooklyn Vegan[58]

Building up to the band's tenth album, Neurosis would perform at the 2010 edition of All Tomorrow Parties' Nightmare Before Christmas, followed by an appearance at Maryland Deathfest and a tour of Europe, sharing the stage with the likes of Amenra, Ufomammut and Karma to Burn among others. On 30 August 2010 via Roadburn Records and 7 September 2010 Neurosis would release Live at Roadburn 2007 while announcing plans to record their next album.[59] Classic Neurosis albums would also see re-issue on CD and vinyl for the first time in years.[60]

Recording again with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, finishing by the Spring of 2012.[61] Details on the band's tenth album would surface by August[62] with an album title, songs and artwork being revealed. Honor Found in Decay would see release via Neurot Recordings on 30 October 2012, peaking at #10 on the Heatseekers charts,[63] along with attaining significant critical acclaim.[64] A release party would be hosted at The Fox Theatre on 17 November, with support for Yob and Voivod.[65] Following an appearance at ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas (Curated by Shellac) the band would embark on a winter mini-tour, followed by touring Europe the next year surrounding appearances at Primavera Sound and Hellfest. Notably longtime visual artist Josh Graham would amicably part ways with the band, leading to the band to cease using visual media at their shows.[66]

In 2014 Neurosis, following a string of shows in Canada, Europe and an appearance at Temples Festival, would tour Australia for the first time in their career.[67] The band would also make marquee appearances at Bestia Festival in Mexico City[68], Southwest Terror Fest in Rialto, Arizona and Husecore Horror Fest in Austin, Texas. In 2015 Neurosis would return to Maryland Deathfest and embark on their most extensive North American tour in over fifteen years.[69] The band would announce plans for their thirtieth anniversary in the Fall, along with working with Steve Albini and Electrical Audio for their eleventh album.[70]

Fires Within Fires (2016 - Present)[edit | edit source]

Neurosis would begin 2016 having announced a series of special shows for their thirtieth anniversary as a band. The band would perform three sold out nights at the Regency Ballroom from 4 March to 6 March, each night featuring a two hour set with songs spanning the band's entire career. The band would follow up on this theme with two performances at Roadburn Festival the next month. Along with the special residency shows the band. Along with vinyl reissues,[71] The band would also announce and release a career spanning box set entitled Strength & Vision, featuring eleven CDs and nineteen LPs, comprising every studio album to that point.[72] Decibel Magazine would also release a special issue that August dedicated entirely to Neurosis, along with inducting three of their albums into the Decibel Hall of Fame.[73]

With recording taking place at the end of 2015 going into 2016 at Electrical Audio with Steve Albini,[74] an eleventh album would be recorded and mixed in seven days to coincide with the band's anniversary and career-spanning box set. Following a tour of Europe, Fires Within Fires would see release on 23 September 2016, peaking at #8 on the Heatseekers and charting in several other countries.[75] Fires Within Fires would attain critical acclaim despite it's shorter length, even being cited as album of the year by both Terrorizer[76] and CVLT Nation.[77] In an interview with Echoes and Dust, Steve Von Till would speak about Fires Within Fires and the band's ever-evolving sound:

"[On Steve Albini] I mean, you never know what the future holds, but what we like about Steve is he’s such a professional in a traditional sense of being a knowledgable engineer. He’s got more experience than anybody we know. He’s literally made thousands of records and he’s fast and efficient with the highest quality we could possibly ask for. It’s top of the line analogue recording like all of our favourite albums ever were always recorded. There’s not any sort of modern bullshit getting in the way. We just set up and play live and we’ve spent thirty years crafting our tone and we don’t want anyone to fuck it up! His main goal in his engineering life is to not fuck up your record and he would say that, like I don’t want to fuck up your record. There’s no fixing stuff later, there’s no special tricks. There’s just him catching a very high fidelity, very pleasing quality recording of what we sound like in a room.

[On Fires Within Fires and maintaining creativity] Yeah, there’s not much conscious that goes into what we do. We don’t have any sort of any philosophical or intellectual conversations of where we want the music to go. By this point in our career, we pretty much want just to trust the process and we know that the sound will evolve her ever it is supposed to evolve and that if we surrender to that higher ideal of letting it flow and letting the music take us instead of us take the music then we’ll consistently just evolve to new places and become, each time we do it hopefully, older, wiser and be the best version of ourselves that is possible.

Again, I think it just has to do with being forward thinking and never wanting to rest on our laurels, never looking back to any sort of heyday or any kind of crap like that. I think the moment it really started when we found ourselves and made a commitment to this band and to this music was a commitment to evolution and change and a commitment to embodying the spirit of the music and I think each time we get better at it. Each time we get closer and closer to that true spirit of Neurosis is supposed to be and it feels that the inspiration we’ve been lucky enough to tap into is fairly infinite so with that in mind we fully expect to die trying to find the sound is always elusive."

— Steve Von Till, Echoes and Dust[78]

Neurosis would embark on their most extensive world tour in years to support Fires Within Fires, beginning with a tour of Australia and New Zealand,[79] a short European tour including the band's first ever show in Iceland and an extensive North American tour with Converge and Amenra.[80] After appearances at Psycho Las Vegas and Days of Darkness the band would embark on their first ever South American tour. The next year would see a return to Hellfest and Copenhell surrounding a tour of Europe, another North American tour with Converge and Amenra, followed with a headlining appearance at Muddy Roots Music Festival.

In 2019 Neurosis would tour with Converge for their first ever tour of Japan, followed by appearances at Rock im Roma, Dour Festival and Supersonic Festival, rounding out the year touring North America with Deafkids and Bell Witch.
