SotW 5/13/12: Neurosis - Aeon

Artist: Neurosis
Song: Aeon
Album: Through Silver in Blood

One of Neurosis' most crushing tracks, Aeon is a definitive masterwork of sludge. Deceptively calm pianos lead off into a monstrous barrage of riffs accompanied by Steve Von Till's and Scott Kelly's signature tortured bellows, and the climax is one of the genre's most memorable. At nearly 12 minutes, it's not easy listening, but since when have Neurosis ever been? This song encapsulates everything they're good at, and you'd be remiss not to give it a spin.
