NEUROSIS

One of the few hardcore punk bands to successfully transition to heavy metal, Neurosis was a hardcore band (their first record was released on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles record label, and they also released music on classic pop/punk label Lookout) before they gradually transformed themselves into a much more atmospheric and almost tribal-sounding metal band, that wisely chose not to follow the glam metal examples of other bands such as TSOL, who made the transition much less successfully. Sometimes the keyboards-based Neurosis could even be mistaken for an art rock band, if the music was not so incredibly dark. Neurosis has helped to redefine the punk/metal nexus. While most of their music is recommended, A Sun That Never Sets and Enemy of the Sun are the band’s most consistent. They are also a key influence on many modern metal bands that experiment with dynamics such as the Swedish band Cult of Luna.
