Biography

Oakland, CA, United States (1985 – present)

1) Neurosis is an band based in Oakland, CA, United States. Their unique sound draws influences from , , , , and even and . They are often considered as pioneers of the genre commonly referred to as and/or .

In late 1985, Scott Kelly, Dave Edwardson and Jason Roeder (formerly members of Violent Coercion) founded the band as a outfit, borrowing from British . It has gradually progressed through a variety of styles, arriving at a mixture of heavy metal and acoustic, minimalistic ambiance which has proved influential on the scene.

From 1990 to 1993, Adam G. Kendall was recruited to create the visuals and perform live with the band. Following his departure from touring, Pete Inc. took over the job, although Kendall continued to contribute visuals for the band until as late as 1997. Kendall also shot the footage for the “Locust Star” video. Josh Graham took over live visuals in early 2000, and was with the band until late 2012 when he left to pursue his band A Storm of Light full time. He also created album artwork for 2004’s The Eye of Every Storm and 2007’s Given to the Rising.

Often experimental and psychedelic in nature, the visuals have added to the reputation of Neurosis’ live performances. Many of the visuals for their tours supporting Through Silver In Blood can be found in Ken Russell’s film Altered States. Other images are included in the enhanced portion of the Sovereign mini album, and on the A Sun That Never Sets DVD video release.

    The Word As Law is underrated as fuck though, love the Black Flag meets Fugazi meets Melvins approach of that record.

    Souls at Zero, Enemy of the Sun, Through Silver in Blood, Times of Grace. Monumental, incredibly massive and rich albums. [3] That's their four best too.

    Очень спокойная и меланхоличная музыка, нет абсолютно ничего лишнего, но при всем этом звучание достаточно плотное.

    false. start with enemy of the sun, sun that never sets or eye of every storm. times of grace and given to the rising are a little overrated

    Through Silver and Blood, Times of Grace and Given To The Rising are probably good places to start and then just go for any other barring the first two albums if you're not interested in that style.

    "I've been listening a lot of bands that were inspired by them but never checked them properly. Can anyone tell which is the best album to start? " through silver in blood to souls at zero to enemy of the sun to a sun that never sets to times of grace then ditch them. if you like hardcore punk, try their first album. but it is not an exemplar hardcore punk album.
