Muze PNote Neurosis's 1991 art-thrash classic, SOULS AT ZERO, was a strange bird even at the time of release. Leaving behind their more conventional punk roots, the band began incorporating samples and electronic textures, as well as a marked tribal folk influence, with their still-monstrous rock. While a legion of atmospheric metal groups including Tool, Isis, and Pelican have since traveled the road Neurosis paved here, it was a virtual wilderness at the time.
Muze PNote Hypnotic and menacing songs like "A Chronology for Survival" build a sense of theatrical dread with repeated spidery guitar lines and cold washes of synths, while "Sterile Vision" and "Stripped" flirt with medieval acoustic folk. The injection of space and silence into what had previously been a more standard hard-rock sound changed Neurosis irrevocably, but that's not to say they didn't leave any room for pounding, industrial-charged heaviness. In fact, the tribal-inflected rhythms on SOULS AT ZERO may well be its defining trait, as the bursts of power hit that much harder when they come less frequently. Mysterious, mesmerizing, and eerie, SOULS AT ZERO is metal for modern druids.

Professional Reviews

Reflex (11/10/92, p.73)
- "..The sound on SOULS is so mammoth, it's difficult to believe the band only consists of five guys...Neurosis seem able and willing to challenge the boundaries of the recording studio and their own minds.."

Record Collector (magazine)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "By stretching their songs out towards the 10-minute mark Neurosis gave themselves room to breathe and to incorporate complex, atmospheric arrangements."
