Affliction, Endocrine… Vertigo (Candlelight)
by Scott Hefflon
A good opening band for Neurosis, when they’re in France. U.S. debut, on Candlelight, so you might never hear of it or be able to find it. Fans of sparse, dark, piano tinkling and a guitar noodle that creeps in periphery for five minutes will seek this out, and it’s got the droning thunder front-loaded, so you can chill by CD’s end. Should be on the mp3 CD in a perfect world.
