Great news everyone. This friday, as you may already know, Neurosis released their new album ”Fires Within Fires”. A lot of people (including myself) have been waiting for this album to come out. And now finally the time has come. Neurosis do not really need an introduction. They’ re one of the most influential bands out there. They’ re also one of our favorite bands here in Tzertzelos.
So the album was released on the 23rd of September through Neurot Recordings. First of all i have to say the album’s cover art puzzled me a lot. I didn’t realy get it. I think it’s mediocre. It’s as if someone ran out of inspiration. I didn’t really like it. But let us get back to the album. Neurosis’ 12th album contains 5 tracks. But, wait. Before you listen to this album be sure to put on your headphones. So let’s press play. First track is called ”Bending Light”. It’s another great song by Neurosis. It’s pretty obvious the band didn’t lower their standards at all. They gave us another track that immediately sticks to your mind. Next song is called ”A Shadow Memory” and i think i’m getting sunk even deeper in this album. ”Fire is The End Lesson” is the album’s third track. There’s no doubt in my doubt that it’s one excellent track with an immense groove. It’s of course heavy as hell. It’s one of my favorite tracks from ”Fires Within Fires”. Moving on we find ”Broken Ground”. And what do i think about it? Well, i loved it. There’s some much beauty in this song. It sounds trully liberating. A perfect soundtrack for you to leave all that’s been bothering you behind. Last but not least we find ”Reach”. Ladies and gents this is a brilliant song. Listen to it and find out for yourselves.
Overall i have to say i enjoyed this album. Neurosis released another great album. All five songs form an album of exquisite music. Is this the album of the year? I think it might be. All i know is that you need to experience this album. Just put on your headphones and let the music speak for itself. Here are some links where you can also listen to ”Fires Within Fires”:
