Neurosis
Neurosis
Formed in Oakland, California in late 1985, Neurosis developed a style blending industrial, heavy metal, and alternative rock with often spiritually focused lyrics. Members Steve Von Till (guitar, vocals, percussion), Dave Edwardson (bass, vocals), Scott Kelly (bass, vocals), Jason Roeder (drums), Noah Landis (keyboards, samples, tape effects), and Pete Inc. (visuals) debuted in 1987 with the album Pain of Mind, but it took nearly five years for any follow-up to be released. Both Souls at Zero and The Word as Law appeared in 1992, followed by Enemy of the Sun a year later. Released in 1996, Through Silver in Blood became the band's most popular release, and 1999's Steve Albini-produced Times of Grace helped build upon that breakthrough. Sovereign followed a year later. In 2001, Sun That Never Sets stuck with more tribal-like beats and composition, while 2004's The Eye of Every Storm, despite retaining a patina of smoky folk, found the group returning to its sludge metal roots. Given to the Rising, the band's ninth studio album, which was voted the 76th greatest metal album of the decade by Decibal magazine, arrived in 2007, followed in 2012 by Honor Found in Decay, their fifth outing to feature Albini behind the board.

John Dyer Baizley, guitarist/vocalist/artist for Savannah, GA's BARONESS, will be playing a rare solo show tonight at the First Unitarian Church. This will be Baizley's first musical outing since the bands horrific bus accident in the United Kingdom which had left himself along with other members of Baroness and their crew with collapsed lungs, broken limbs, internal bleeding and other injuries. After months of being wheelchair bound, metal plates and screws holding bones back together, learning how to re-walk and play guitar, John and Baroness are almost ready to jump back into things full swing. Please welcome him back from a long road of physical therapy tonight in Philadelphia.
