Neurosis, 'Given to the Rising' (Neurot)

8
Given to the Rising
Critical Mass
Label: Neurot

by Joe Gross

As prog-metal bands multiply like flies on a rotting corpse (Isis, Pelican, Cult of Luna, etc.), these Bay Area vets produce the genre's heaviest album since Bill and Monica. "To the Wind" Rolodexes their skill set, from a gorgeous, spacey intro that mocks imitators with its casual beauty to full-contact rock to Scott Kelly's 29-second, senses-shattering scream. Track after track, pretenders to the throne are slashed and burned with detailed dynamics, elephantine riffs, and actual grooves. As Steve Von Till puts it on "Hidden Faces": "I. Will. See you coming!" Your move, Tool.
