Killtown Bookings i samarbejde med Den Grå hal er stolte over at præsentere Neurosis’ længe ventede tilbagekomst til Danmark på deres forestående Europa tourné ”Honor Found In Decay”. Deres europæiske tour bringer dem forbi Christianias Den Grå Hal tirsdag d. 25. juni 2013. Dette bliver det første klub show i Danmark siden de spillede på Loppen i 1999.

Forsalget starter FREDAG 22.03 KL.10.00 på www.billetlugen.dk
Oakland kvintetten Neurosis har siden 1985 været et helt unikt band, der har overskredet grænserne for enhver genre de har indvolveret sig i. Fra Hardcore og Crust punk til Doom Metal og Post-rock med elementer fra Dark Ambient, Industrial og folkemusik.
De har altid holdt sig i bevægelse, og er aldrig stoppet med at mutere og udvikle deres sangskrivning, lydbillede og udtryk i studiet såvel som live. Således står Neurosis i dag som et af de mest toneangivende bands indenfor den hårdere rock.
Sidste år udsendte Neurosis det monumentale – og tiende – album, ”Honor Found In Decay”, som fik fremragende anmeldelser over hele kloden og endte højt på utallige lister over årets bedste albums.
NEUROSIS ANNOUNCE LONG-AWAITED EUROPEAN TOUR IN SUPPORT OF HONOR FOUND IN DECAY!
It is said that great art has the power to take us outside of ourselves and bring us closer to ourselves simultaneously. Few bands have accomplished this rare feat on a more profound and consistent basis than NEUROSIS. For nearly three decades, their music has touched the hearts and minds of men and women seeking contact with something beyond the physical world, something intangible, something that expresses the inner tumult of the human condition in a way that transcends time and space. Something that not only provokes questions but maybe even hints at answers.
Since 1985 this matchless force has surpassed the boundaries of any genre, never ceasing to mutate and progress their songwriting and sonic delivery, and never failing to mesmerise audiences both in the studio and onstage.
In 2012 NEUROSIS returned with the monumental release of their tenth studio album, Honor Found In Decay which went on to receive countless plaudits from the press on a global scale, and was positioned highly in end of year polls – reaffirming why NEUROSIS remain one of the most important heavy acts in existence. But their journey does not stop here, for NEUROSIS have announced a full European tour in support of the album and we are especially delighted to announce the dates today…

Thank you for your time and ill leave you with a selection of notable praise from the press…
“It is the overwhelming physicality of their monolithic riffs that remains their most incisive musical tool. An underlying sense of disquiet and existential yearning has long thrummed at the heart of Neurosis, but even by their usual standards the grim restlessness of the opener, All Rage in Gold, packs a devastating punch. On the extraordinary dynamic peaks and troughs of At the Well, the band wield near-silence as a weapon, its unsettling fragility emerging from clouds of ugly distortion and snail’s-pace tribal percussion. Similarly, the sprawling Casting of the Ages forces the subtle and the grotesque together in an exhilarating but doom-laden embrace. In less skilful hands, this relentless sonic oppression would be gruelling, but by expressing human frailty with such visceral abandon, Neurosis have once again turned darkness into euphoria.” – 4/5 GUARDIAN
“Neurosis have taken a more complex route: skillfully weaving strains of folk, prog and even chilled ambience into their patented doom metal/hardcore tapestry and often obtaining staggering results in the process…Low poiints are refreshingly absent, while at the record’s heart are two epic, 10 minute set pieces. The maximum heaviosity of Casting Of The Ages initially seems an impossible act to follow, yet the breathtaking, Porcupine Tree-style scope of My Heart For Deliverance manages it with style to spare, throwing down the gauntlet for all would-be-future-shaping rock’n’roll alchemists into the bargain.” 4/5 RECORD COLLECTOR
“Craggy riffs and swathed in misty synthesiser, and a firm control of dynamics lend “Bleeding The Pigs” and “Casting Of The Ages” a compelling sense of ebb and flow, raging intensity giving way to sombre piano lamentations and vocalist Scott kelly’s weathered, Tom Waits growl.” – 8/10 UNCUT
“Another spiritual journey into the very heart of mankind. Completely and utterly mind-blowing.” – METAL HAMMER
“The most stunning aspects of ‘Honor Found In Decay’ come from Neurosis’ grasp of dynamics…as ever, in the hands of these uncompromising sorcerers, true heaviness can be as much about the directness as disorientation, and as much about the sinister rumble as an unearthly roar.” – 5/5 TERRORIZER

Ash Borer (us) – Profound Lore Records
Ash Borer is a black metal act from Northern California formed in the winter of 2008. After releasing 2 demos, a split with Fell Voices, and a self-titled full length, Ash Borer have unleashed a new full-length onslaught, Cold of Ages, via Profound Lore Records. This new material proves to be their darkest, most ferocious, and strongest to date, drawing influences from from second-wave Norwegian black metal, psychedelia, dark ambient, funeral doom, and more, all while retaining a sound that is distinctly their own.
Fell Voices (us) – Analog Worship Records
Fell Voices are an atmospheric black metal band from Santa Cruz, California, that also incorporates drone, ambient and doom qualities into their inspired breed of black metal. They released a self-titled cassette demo (sometimes referred to as In the Hands of the Blind God) in 2008 on Featherspines, and followed that up in 2009 with their self-titled full length debut on Human Resources, pressed on 180 gram vinyl. A split with Ash Borer followed on tape in August 2010; a demo CD-R was released around the same time. The 2010 demo and the split were both pressed on vinyl by Gilead Media and released in March of 2011. The 2008 demo was pressed on vinyl by Analog Worship in late 2011.

The Baboon Show (swe) – Kidnap Music
“The Baboon Show then rip through 60 minutes of ferocious punk rock, punctuated with affectionate words for the admiring crowd… Lead singer Cecilia Boström is a star. She swings from the lights, runs around and jumps up and down like a woman possessed. Energetic Håkan Sörle provides the driving guitar riffs and looks like Wolverine after a hair cut and 15 espressos. Sörle, drummer Niclas Svensson and bassist Helen Lindberg all share backing vocal duties, creating an exciting dynamic. The mixed crowd of young fashionistas and aging punks show love to the band, without ever becoming very lively… The Baboon Show make catchy songs, give a great live show and are well worth going to see.”
