Founded back in 1987, Neurosis are a thrash/death metal band hailing from Colombia, South America. Their latest release is a three track EP called ‘Las Centurias de la Muerte’ (‘The Centuries of Death’) and is out now.
South American death/thrash metal…it’s no surprise that Neurosis’ three-track offering is all kinds of fast and heavy. Delivering head-banging fury wrapped up in a familiar but still exciting blend of thrashy death, Neurosis lengthy career has seen them perfect this kind of metal. Rough and raw but with purpose.
Fiery riffs, the crashing drums and nasty guttural vocals grabs the attention before the more rhythmic El Guardian stands up and demands the focus. The thumping beat is so exciting and just when you think they’re given all they can, a screaming guitar solo and fist-punching ending cap it off perfectly.
Over way too soon, Voces del Infierno ends the EP with everything you could hope for. The thrash-based tempo mixed with the death metal vocals is one thing but the scale of grandness that Neurosis deliver is another. Their longevity in this genre of metal is no fluke, Las Centurias de la Muerte is a brilliant release.
