Neurosis & Jarboe - S/T (2003) [V0]

I just recently saw Neurosis live and it reminded me of this album, and how many Neurosis appreciators are completely ignorant to it's existence. Metalheads who only like Neurosis for their riffs or "brutal" sound will not like this album. People who listen to Neurosis in appreciation for the combination of dissonance and ambient to heavier, crushing even epic sounds, will probably love this album. It revolves around much more synth with drums rather than the guitars, with Jarboe's very dynamic voice giving it a gothic feel. I really can't pidgeonhole this into a genre but it has elements of post-punk, sludge, doom metal or even post-rock.

V0 part 2


  1. excellent post and great intro to both artists! anything else from either is most welcome!

  2. I've had this on my MP3 for about a week and listen continually. I love Jarboe, her voice is haunting and is capable of such extremes. I started off with the SWANS. This album is exceptional and I will now start listening to Neurosis. I would like to reccommend her work on Skin's Blood, Women, Roses.

  3. Sludge is slow - this isn't and therefore cannot be sludge. AMG refer to this as Alternative Metal which is closer to the mark.

  4. As youtube to mp3 altercation is all set, you'll become a declaration display how you be inflict with to download it all the rage the aim of your automaton.
