Neurosis are a band from Oakland, California that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording played more of a mixture of crust, d beat, hardcore punk and extreme metal and this is a review of their 1990 album "The World As Law" which will be re-issued in August by Neurot Recordings.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album along with some melodic guitar leads and powerful bass guitars being added onto the recording a few seconds later which also take s the music more into a hardcore punk direction along with some shouting style vocals and the music also mixes in elements of d beat.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and elements of noise rock can also be heard at times and acoustic guitars also return briefly as the album progresses and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody along with a couple of tracks being very long and epic in length while some of the more aggressive riffing also adds in a touch of thrash and one of t he songs shows signs of the future experimental style.
On this recording Neurosis played mostly a d beat style of hardcore punk while a great amount of metal influences can be heard along with an experimental touch, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover devastation, evolution through pain and spirituality themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Neurosis and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Double-Edged Sword" "To What End?" and "Blisters". 8 out of 10.
