The Obelisk Show on Gimme Metal Playlist: Episode 63 – Neurosis Deep-Dive Pt. 2

the obelisk show banner

You might recall that the last episode of The Obelisk Show on Gimme Metal was a look at the beginnings of Neurosis’ career, the first part of a deep-dive into their storied and wildly influential catalog. Well, as I said we would, we’re picking up where we left off. That was 2001’s A Sun That Never Sets, and this episode starts with the opening track of The Eye of Every Storm, which pushed those drone impulses even further and became the most spacious record the band has done to-date.

From there, we move chronologically into Given to the Rising and Honor Found in Decay as they renewed their commitment to crushing while still pushing into ever more atmospheric tendencies, having created the genre post-metal along the way, and ultimately ending with Fires Within Fires, their latest work, which encompassed a rawer approach nodding to the whole of what their sound has come to encompass over their 30-plus years. We close with “The Doorway” from Live at Roadburm 2007 as well to emphasize just how much of their impact is made on the stage. If you’ve never seen them, the answer is a lot of it.

Thanks for listening and/or reading. I hope you enjoy.
