1 - ALARIC - END OF MIRRORS - (LP) 
NEUROT


End of Mirrors is the new album from Oaklands Alaric. Operating at height of their powers, the quartet delivers a claustrophobic, gloomy, epically grandiose work. Shane Bakers lyrics are deeply personal and universal in scope. They reflect hard times in a fallen world at a time of monumental change in the lives of the band members. These are emotional and deeply physical journeys; inky, blackened stuff, but not without a glint of hope. It could be moonlight shining through a crack in the wall or maybe just a sickly glow visible out of the corner of ones eye. Jason Willer pummels the drums, driving forward with power and finesse, and then dropping down into a roiling boil of tribal toms. Bassist Rick Jacobuss woozy but solid lines carry the melody while filling out the sonic space with riding drone notes. "I am going for a sheets of electric rain guitar sound," says guitarist Russ Kent, a master of his craft. He creates scintillating, cascading moments of beauty that open into crushing and aggressive distortion. As with their previous efforts, the new LP was recorded and mixed by Skot Brown at his Kempton House studios. Browns contributions have been crucial to realizing the vision of the band, expanding on its creepy and complex soundscapes while giving the songs a chance to breathe and shine with exceptional clarity. The band also enlisted the sound artist and experimental electronic musician Thomas Dimuzio to contribute his unique atmospheric investigations to End of Mirrors. Dimuzio employs a Buchla Polyphonic radio tuner, modular analog synthesizers and non-traditional methods. Make no mistake, this is not passive listening. These are instant classics for a new dark age..

3 - BODY, THE & FULL OF HELL - ONE DAY YOU WILL ACHE LIKE I ACHE - (CD) 
NEUROT


Since their inception in 1999, massively prolific Arkansas band The Body has refined an uncategorized and unmatched sound. The duo writes and acts as one-a deafening wail against a failing species. Full of Hell was formed in 2009 in Ocean City, Maryland. With a similar ethos, the band is prolific and relentless, ever challenging themselves, channeling influences from across the spectrum of extreme music into a nihilistic wall of oppressive sound. Both acts are unstoppable tour machines, and in 2015 joined forces for a massive North American campaign. Recorded amidst the chaos at Machines With Magnets in Providence, Rhode Island, One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache is the debut collaborative work by the two likeminded artists..

4 - BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH - BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH - (LP) 
NEUROT


With a long-held reputation for some of the heaviest music from the the Pacific Northwest, Seattles legendary Tad Doyle (formerly of Tad, Hog Molly) delivers his strongest songwriting and playing to date with his newest band Brothers of the Sonic Cloth. This powerful trio of musicians-Tad on guitar / vocals, veteran bass player Peggy Doyle and drummer Dave French (the Annunaki)-present their long-awaited debut album on Neurosiss own Neurot Recordings. Brothers of the Sonic Cloth bring together the collective and extensive musical histories and experience of the three members in the worlds of punk, hard rock and metal. Recorded at Robert Lang Studios and Doyles own Witch Ape Studios in Seattle and mixed by Billy Anderson, Brothers of the Sonic Cloths self-titled full-length consists of five immense songs, with two bonus tracks on the CD. The record opens with "Lava," an ominous eruption of riffs forged from deep within the Earth, and continues on this path throughout; a mammoth, relentless spirit on a timeless journey. This album is as much a persistent, thudding body-punch of sonic destructive force as it is a thoughtful statement of awareness of the inescapable raw condition of life..

6 - CHRCH - LIGHT WILL CONSUME US ALL - (LP) 
NEUROT


Standing at a crossroads of light and dark, Sacramentos doom quintet CHRCH wields epic, lengthy songs, massive low end and an occult vocal presence in a perfect blend of height and depth. They have been hard at work crafting their particular sound since late 2013. There is no image or campy gimmick to uphold, only the humble glorification of their fundamental musical elements. The bands second full length, Light Will Consume Us All, carries with it the same quality of songwriting that caught the attention of fans worldwide on their first release, Unanswered Hymns (Battleground Records, 2015), a sprawling roller coaster of an album. Long form songs build and heedlessly dismantle as the band reaches sonic heights and beautiful plateaus. Severe, sometimes unrelenting, vocals contrast melodic singing; massive fuzz gives way to clean guitar parts. Building upon this unyielding foundation, this latest album continues the bands narrative, traversing lifes epic journey of loss, reclamation and, ultimately, finding hope within the darkness. Second album by Sacramento doom quintet has a sound influenced by traditional doom, psych rock, drone, and ambience Previous album Unanswered Hymns and split 12-inch with Fister on Battleground Records garnered them praise from numerous from metal sites like Cvltnation, Metal Observer, Metal Archives, and many more

8 - CORRECTIONS HOUSE - KNOW HOW TO CARRY A WHIP - (CD) 
NEUROT


The long-anticipated sophomore full-length from Corrections House is darker, denser, and more despairing than its predecessor Last City Zero. This 45-minute audio apocalypse was captured by the bands own Sanford Parker (Minsk) and recently institutionalized minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury, in Vietnam. Boasting a guest appearance by Negative Soldier, Know How to Carry a Whip finds features the fiery lineup of Parker, Fairbury, Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) and Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod) at their most punishing, painting electronic mosaics of deviance and decadence with brushes made from bristles of the damned. Immersed in experiences of longing and loneliness from the depths of their creators collectively decaying hearts, each of the nine movements reveals a new, unsettling sentiment of danger, paranoia and looming defeat. An underlying theme of confinement and release bridges each track. Distorted, static-sodden and tribal, entwined around Williams unassailable manic street preacher prose and intermittently juxtaposed by the smooth, cradling sounds of Lamonts lingering saxophone, Know How to Carry a Whip is at once glacially devastating and metaphysically cathartic. "The music is simultaneously suffocating and freeing," expounds Kelly, "but it also has the energy of a whirling dervish." In a rare, lucid transmission from the mental facility in which he currently resides, Fairbury further elaborates on the production. "The songs typically originate from the loops and beats generated from Sanford, then the skeletons of riffs are built by Scott and Bruce. Mike IX adds his profound observations and I do the final production. These new songs are far more developed and fluid then the first record. There is a prevailing groove that dominates." Allegedly plotting an elaborate escape, Fairbury plans to rejoin his brothers in their systematic propagation of auditory abuse later this year. Corrections House methodically creates and destroys through sonic disease and transcendent musical deconstruction. All things in all ways. There is nothing else..

10 - CORRECTIONS HOUSE - LAST CITY ZERO - (CD) 
NEUROT


Corrections House is the collective compulsions of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury. A mysterious cooperative of lost souls, forged unwittingly by the impetuous forces of nature and altered states of consciousness, Corrections House is without control of their destiny. Debut album Last City Zero conjures an impossible-to-pinpoint kaleidoscopic synthesis of mechanical decomposition, atmospheric abnormalities, and poetic putrefaction. Embracing the unkind, the diseased, the forgotten, the morose, the groups lush anti-soundscrapes and shadowy verses-at once beautifully hideous, graceful and terrifying-are a direct manifestation of societal ruin and psychological decay. The transformation of time and space; death begetting life and veils being torn; an imposing dissonance too penetrating to dismiss-Corrections House systematically creates and destroys through audio disease and transcendent musical deconstruction. All things in all ways. There is nothing else. "[U]nique and devastating" -Invisible Oranges "Its both heavy and definitely dirty" -Dig Boston.

11 - DARK BUDDHA RISING - II - (12") 
NEUROT


Prepare the mind, the body, the deepest recesses of the soul: the black gates that Dark Buddha Rising opened a decade ago with I open further in 2018: the bands II EP continues to twist spiritual gyres and follow calls from beyond. For ten years, this Finnish band has convened in the now-famous Wastement-set below their home city of Tampere-to roil in the sounds of the underground, to meet dark spirits, to breathe in time with rhythmic pulses sent from the skies, the stars and the very dirt around. On its face, the band emits the blackest of psychedelia; deep down, theirs are sounds forged in the blue fires of the ancients-exhalations of gods, goddesses and demons alike. Of this new offering, V. Ajomo says: "To drain our sonic temple, we wanted to record the new material which was made for 2016 shows in order to proceed towards the unknown with open minds and hearts. After the cleansing, we initiated our chamber with ambient meditation and opened the portals of inspiration for our future work." This EP sees the band returning to its purest incarnation: a three-piece rhythm section-J.Rmnen on drums, P. Rmnen on bass and V. Ajomo on guitar-and with J. Saarivuori on synths and M. Neuman on main vocals. "We have done a full cycle of the orbit and now is the time for gravitational slingshot towards the new dimensions in sound, deliverance and vision," Ajomo adds. Finnish psychedelic doom drone mystics return with a call back to their first album, I, released over a decade ago

13 - DARK BUDDHA RISING - INVERSUM - (CD) 
NEUROT


Since their 2008 debut Ritual IX, the ensemble known as Dark Buddha Rising has mastered its craft album by album, show by show. Ominous riffing, colossal doom, swirling psychedelia, repetition, repetition, repetition. The recipe is carved in stone, yet it leads to different endings-or bottomless shafts. Tension, tension, tension, lunacy. Inversum, their fifth studio full-length, is the opening of the Third Cycle of Dark Buddha Rising. It acts as an initiation for the new members V. Vatanen (guitar, vocals) and J. Saarivuori (keyboards), and is the first release through Neurot Recordings. Most of all, Inversum is the first album recorded, produced and mixed by the band themselves in the depths of the Wastement, the asylum of eternal feedback. The process that led to the manifestation of the Inversum, heavily guided by both intuition and determination, takes the bands musick further down its chosen path. Inversum is a monument built upon the foundation of their past work and is sculpted with the initial principles of Dark Buddha Rising to celebrate the Black Arts of Psychedelia. Hold tight. The winds are gathering..

15 - DEAF KIDS - CONFIGURACAU DO LAMENTO - (EP) 
NEUROT


Configuraao Do Lamento is a sound riot, a trance-inducing cacophony, a body-shaking mix of percussive rhythms and bending guitars. The seventh album by Sao Paulo, Brazils Deaf Kids is harmful for the weak-minded. An experimental mile marker on the bands journey, it is as treacherous on the ears as hypnotic to the mind. Expanding the bands D-beat origins, these eight tracks vacillate between demonic fever dreams, orgies of acidic guitars and percussive taunting. Sometimes songs are not songs anymore, but assaults which clatter and hum like rough metallic windchimes in gale force winds. The band was formed in 2010 in the industrial city of Volta Redonda / Rio de Janeiro as a solo fuzz-soaked blend of crust / D-beat before bass and drums were added. Seven years, seven releases, two European tours, gigs across Brazil and more than one hundred shows later, the band remains steadfast on a path of sonic mind control. Their releases explore different takes on the hypnotic rhythms that comprise D-beat. When the band moved together to Sao Paulo, they began to blend each members musical and aesthetic taste with a common interest in mesmerizing grooves and psychedelic rhythms from around the globe. They now produce overwhelming, sensory-driven dirges that carry a Brazilian (and Latin American) imprint. Deaf Kids is the legitimate bastard child of colonial chaos-trapped here and there, between both complementary and opposing worldviews, trying to balance the intensity and conflicted human condition.Sao Paulo, Brazil band turns D-beat on its head with mesmerizing and psychedelic Brazilian and Latin American grooves

17 - HALL, NATE - A GREAT RIVER - (CD) 
NEUROT


The debut solo release from Nate Hall, the driving force behind US Christmas, A Great River captures a brief, impulsive moment. Recorded in a single March evening, it is as pure and honest as music gets. The songs are regretful of the bad times, hopeful of times to come, and respectful of the great power that causes all thing to be. Reflecting a lifetime spent with the echoes of Dylan, Young, Petty, Springsteen and Van Zandt, A Great River draws from the rich musical history of America and the melancholy of Appalachia, and harnesses the "electric vacuum roar" of guitar slingers past and present. "The first time I heard Nate Halls voice I knew that I was hearing something that would haunt me forever. The unmistakable sound of mountains wind and the desperation and anguish of truth and experience. Authenticity isnt something you can acquire. Either you are or you are not. Nates work shows a depth of heart and a pure channeling that you wont come across ten times in your life." -Scott Kelly (Neurosis).

18 - HARVESTMAN - MUSIC FOR MEGALITHS - (LP) 
NEUROT


Ruins, monuments, and ancient sites of worship are multi-sensory experiences - at once residues of the sacred, the parchment on which the passage of time has been inscribed and templates for imaginative reconstruction, spaces in which to invest and immerse, to trade your bearings for an inexhaustible state of transition. Over the course of three albums, Steve Von Till has, under the guise of Harvestman, provided the sonic analogue, casting his net for what might have been and yet still be. Both a personal meditation and a tuning fork for the most ancient and enduring of resonances, his latest album, Music For Megaliths, further expands his journeys along the sonic ley lines that run between folk, drone, psychedelia, the osmische' outposts of krautrock and noise. Recorded over a period of several years in the dawn hours of creation. Artwork hand painted by Thomas Hooper.

"Recorded over a period of several years in the dawn hours of creation, this album is an aggregation of moments and recordings that have allowed themselves to spell out a greater whole. Utilizing repetition, manipulation and modulation, its a hallowed frequency dial that ranges across the pulse-regulated drone of "The Forest Is Our Temple," revving up like a generator powered by arcane currents, the blissful gaze of "Ring Of Sentinels," the ominous waves of interference on "Sundown," and "White Horse," with its rite of dissolution and regeneration, nomadic and devout. Music For Megaliths is a crossing over, whose multiple routes are testament to a singular and sensuously dilated vision." -Jonathan Selzer Latest side project by Steve Von Till (Neurosis) runs between folk, drone, psychedelia, krautrock, and noise

20 - IDES OF GEMINI - OLD WORLD NEW WAVE - (CD) 
NEUROT


In May of 2012, Ides of Gemini unveiled their debut full-length, Constantinople. Its mere existence was a triumph for the three band members-Sera Timms (vocals / bass), Kelly Johnston-Gibson (drums / backing vocals), and Jason Bennett (guitar / backing vocals)-but other folks had some nice things to say about it as well. Spin called Constantinople "Processional doom, [with] ethereal female harmonies and high-strung riffs [that] incite head-bowing, not -banging." The learned scholars at MetalSucks chimed in with, "Their accretion of small musical gestures inverts metals normal use of space. They imply terror without ever exposing it. Each song is an accumulation of outlines, a sort of sonic daguerreotype." In the fall of 2012, Ides of Gemini played a pair of shows with Old Man Gloom before embarking upon a European/UK tour that kicked off at Germanys South of Mainstream Festival and saw the band play direct support to Saturday night headliners The Obsessed-and later to a full house at Hollands Incubate Festival. In January of 2013, Ides of Gemini had the honor of opening for their labelmates (and label bosses) Neurosis at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. A month-long North American tour as sole support for the anonymous Swedes of Ghost B.C. followed in the spring. This incredibly successful journey across the continent coincided with two new Ides of Gemini songs on Hexagram 45, a special Record Store Day 7-inch released via Magic Bullet Records that had to be repressed before it even came out due to overwhelming record shop demand. Upon their return to Los Angeles, Ides Of Gemini played shows with Boris, Deafheaven, and True Widow before hibernating to finish writing and rehearsing the material that would become Old World New Wave. "The foundation for Old World New Wave was laid before Constantinople even came out," Bennett reveals. "We had the title, most of the guitar tracks and basic arrangements in place at that point. Weve been planning this record for a long time, so its incredibly rewarding-and a total relief-to finally have it out." Old World New Wave was recorded at Valley Recording in Burbank, CA, during the first week of February 2014. It was engineered and mixed by Chris Rakestraw, who did the same for Constantinople and is often noted for his work with Danzig. The album was mastered by Grammy-winning producer Matt Hyde, renowned for his work with Slayer, among others. The artwork and design, including the striking hand-drawn cover, were executed by drummer Johnston-Gibson..

21 - IRON TONGUE - DOGS HAVE BARKED, THE BIRDS HAVE FLOWN - (CD) 
NEUROT


"The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve. Lovers, to bed; tis almost fairy time." -Bill Q. Shakespeare The Iron Tongue of Little Rock, on the other hand, hath told about 4:53 A.M. Fairy times come and gone, and spurned lovers toss and turn and sweat out the sleepless nights chemical indulgences in lonely beds all over town. Theyre not singing of magical, moonlit escapades. These are songs of pain, regret and motherfucking heartache that recall everything from the proto-metal stomp of Blue Cheer and Grand Funk to the darkest hours of Kiss, Deep Purple, Buddy Guy and Skynyrd. The band formed when a group of veteran players with diverse musical backgrounds found a common interest in the need to get down and dirty and way, way gone. Iron Tongue has spent the last three years and change playing its soulful, heavy-amp blues steadily around the South, touring the Midwest and East Coast with Memphis kindred spirits The Dirty Streets, and sharing bills with Black Tusk, Scott Kelly, The Sword, High on Fire, Crowbar and Lita Ford, as well as fellow Arkansans Pallbearer and The Body. Neurosiss Steve Von Till called Iron Tongues debut "a solid slab of balls-to-the-wall shameless rock, with a power and an edge and soul that rarely exists in music today..

22 - KELLY, SCOTT/STEVE VON TILL - SONGS OF TOWNES VAN ZANDT - (CD) 
NEUROT


Townes Van Zandt never reached significant fame during his lifetime. Although highly respected by his peers and other songwriters, the mood and atmosphere of his music, coupled with his sometimes dark and sarcastic nature, was not suitable for the commercial country-industry of Nashville. Van Zandt's songs did, however, reach popularity in his day through artists such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Emmylou Harris. Within his circle of outsider singer-songwriters, he was adored, though ultimately depression and alcoholism overshadowed his life. Van Zandt's friend, singer Steve Earle, has been quoted as saying, "Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the whole world and I'll stand on Bob Dylan's coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that." Van Zandt's passed away in 1997, and the fact that artists as diverse as Robert Plant, Mudhoney, Norah Jones, Lyle Lovett and Dylan himself have kept his songs alive and vital is a testament to the influence and impact of his music. So now do Steve Von Till, Scott Kelly and Wino stand and sing his tribute, each focusing on the essence of Van Zandt's music and lyrics in his own personal way. The result is a great homage, whose intensity lies in fragility and elementary human truths. Van Zandt's broken-hearted love songs and gloom-ridden tales are most deserving of this tribute and praise. "Townes Van Zandt's music is not only brutally honest, he has an ability to paint a picture with his words that is so far beyond the reach and depth of anyone else I have heard to this day." -Scott Kelly "To be able to honor the music of Townes Van Zandt with this project is a true gift.... I hope that it may bring the soul-purifying, down-to-earth truths of Townes to others who may not have discovered him yet, and that those who already recognize his contribution to the world will appreciate this small offering." -Steve Von Till.

23 - KOWLOON WALLED CITY - GRIEVANCES - (CD) 
NEUROT


"All your grand plans and gritted teeth / All your pride / Theyll cut you down to count the rings / Measure out your worst years." The strings rattle. The guitars crackle and blister. The notes ring out, at turns bleak and beautiful-sometimes both at once. Grievances, the third album from Kowloon Walled City and their first for Neurot Recordings, finds the San Francisco band at its artistic peak, having moved even further from its sludgy, post-hardcore origins toward a sparser, sadder yet still de-tuned heaviness. This shift began with 2012s critically successful Container Ships, which Lambgoat described as "spacious" and "mildly hypnotic," with a "Shellac-like use of dead time and instrumentation," and The Obelisk called "cerebral in approach." On Grievances, the band takes these elements to even greater extremes. Guitarist Jon Howells unusual chord changes and discordant aesthetic channel Unwound and Slint. Bassist Ian Millers gritty bass adds a surprising layer of depth and melody, while drummer Jeff Fagundess drums resonate in what sounds like an impossibly large room. Vocalist and guitarist Scott Evanss shouted vocals are raw with frustration and disappointment, but without the typical veneer of macho aggression. The concept of work forms the thematic foundation of the entire record, from the cover art to the title and the lyrics. Whereas previous Kowloon Walled City releases were largely inspired by the bands hometown of San Francisco, Grievances focuses its attention on the complex relationships with work and the power ones employment-and employers-has over us..

24 - MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE - MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE - (LP) 
NEUROT


Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and producer / engineer / sonic warlord Sanford Parker are restless. While the two already work together in Corrections House, a project that also features the talents of Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod and Bruce Lamont of Yakuza, this inquietude has culminated in another collaboration. Where Corrections House is hell-bent on impersonal bludgeon and unfettered terror, Mirrors for Psychic Warfare are far more restrained. The bands haunting self-titled debut is the sonic manifestation of insomnia, complete with the tossing, turning and perennial dread that comes with facing another shabby daylight. These five pieces lurch and pulsate across a desolate landscape with a curious obsessiveness. Mirrors for Psychic Warfare may remind some of the best releases on the classic Cold Meat Industry label, but the familiar Kelly- / Parker-isms scattered throughout give the album its own identity. The work has more in common with a fever or a fitful wraith than a simple record. Mirrors for Psychic Warfare was realized and recorded by both Kelly and Parker at Actual 13 Studio and Hypercube over the course of 2015. The record was mixed and mastered by Parker..
