honor found in decay is the eleventh full-length studio creation from neurosis. the music on 'honor found in decay' is both torturous and transcendent. it is the ongoing exposition of a vast internal dialogue that seems to carry the weight of eons. with the right kind of ears and eyes, it can seem like the trials and tribulations of mankind are being channeled through five individuals: steve von till, scott kelly, noah landis, jason roeder and dave edwardson. and yet? they will be the first ones to tell you that they are just regular people trying to make sense of the world around them. aided by josh graham, their resident visual guru, they transmit their interpretations through multiple sensory planes. the degree to which neurosis allows them to step out of their everyday lives is the distance between one and zero, the distance between thinking and doing, the distance between this minute and the one that may or may not follow. which is to say: neurosis takes them outside of themselves and brings them closer to themselves. simultaneously.
