Neurosis - Sovereign 2000, EP
7.5
Heavy Prog Sludge Metal
Originally released in 2000, this legandary EP is scheduled for rerelease in September 2011 with a previously unreleased bonus track on it.

From beginning to end, the listener is in for an unpleasantly dark and entrancing journey through heavy and sludgy music, ranging from the almost Ennio Morricone-like (well, Ennio Morricone suffering from a massive depression, that is) over 'An Offering' - which offers both traditional doom, drone doom, and groovy sludge doom - to the soundscape infused 'Flood' and 'Sovereign'. And then there is the previously unreleased bonus track 'Misgiven' which, with its use of various drill sounds, certainly is not for those who suffer from fear of dentists.

Although the music is heavy and lumbering, and entrancing, the tunes on "Sovereign" are quite varied in their own way, and, if you like unpolished sludgy music, you definitely should have a go at this release.
