Album Review

Neurosis built their reputation on — to put it one way — long-winded compositions, making their albums a challenging listening experience for even the most dedicated fans. And their fifth album, Through Silver in Blood, doesn't buck the trend, diving headlong into the group's entirely unique experiments in ambient, progressive death metal with the mesmerizing 12-minute title track. With the exception of two minute-long interludes, much of the remaining material follows this blueprint, with abnormally long tracks like "Aeon" and "Purify" gradually building from simple melodies into trance-inducing epics. Conversely, other songs take an unbearably long time to develop, crawling toward their climaxes so slowly (see "Strength of Fates") — or toward no climax at all (see the tortured screaming of "Enclosure in Flame") — that one's attention span is severely tested. It is therefore of little wonder that Neurosis' appeal remains so selective. Approach with caution.

definately one of my favorite albums of all time.. and for those who compare to tool... sorry, but tool wishes they were in neurosis.. or could be as good.

Through Silver and Blood-Neurosis

Damn! This album gets five stars...only because you can't give more. Neurosis has tapped into a style that has not been matched and a truly original sound. Taking the vicious vocals of Scott Kelly and adding it to pulsing bass driven chords with shrieking guitars, then implementing some pounding drums with a slight tribal influence, and drop in a little...classical? The opening, title track is twelve minutes of pure Armagedon. "Purify" is another long journey into hell. And toward the end, "Aeon" offers a slower, softer side of the band, where the classical influence comes in. If Jesus himself listened to this album, likely would be afraid to return to Earth and would disown humanity. That is truly a work of art.

A pinnacle in modern music

Neurosis is one of a kind, and Through Silver In Blood is my favorite album of theirs followed closely by Times of Grace. This is tribal metal at it's finest. Very spiritual music. Highly recommended.
