Soon to be touring in Europe for the very first time are Kowloon Walled City, radical reworkers of sludge and post-hardcore, supporting atmospheric metal masters Minsk. Their debut European tour takes in 12 countries and includes a performance at Porto’s esteemed Amplifest. This is an excellent chance to witness a band who, over the last decade, have refined their sound to a powerful zenith. Last year, they released the terrific album Grievances via Neurot Recordings (CD) and Gilead Media (LP).

Hear Kowloon Walled City honing in on their sparse, melancholic detuned heaviness on Grievances via their bandcamp. All dates, including new additions, can be found below:

"One of this year's true masterpieces." - ROCK A ROLLA 

"Grievances manifests its majesty in mounting despair: once your ears attune to its rewarding subtleties, the emotional rush begins to border on the epic. Manna from heaven for anyone who’s ever entertained the idea of Slint, Floor and Twelve Hour Turn locked in a glaring contest; beautifully bleak heaviosity for everyone else." - THE SKINNY

"The entire album is an eloquent and heartfelt rumination and, despite Evans’ assertion that “all of your voices are like silhouettes”, Grievances proves that it is possible to make your voice heard, and do so with real vigour." - MUSIC OMH

"A stunning record – big, clean guitars, used as knives, not hammers, over a vicious bass bite and drums that hang and resound, full of anticipation, tension and release.... And what’s most impressive is how the riffs all feel purposeful in an emotional and narrative sense. They evolve, twist and push the songs forward. They’re beautiful, brittle and brutal all at the same time." -THE LIST

Neurot Recordings Deep Cut #3: Final - 3

With the DEEP CUTS series, Neurot Recordings revisits the depths of our catalog, heralding the obscure, occasionally unsung and indisputably influential artists that we have had the honor of releasing. Our hope is to bring attention to the influential works that we have helped bring into the world. We believe these releases make up the core of who we are as a label.


DEEP CUTS #3
NR042
RELEASED: 2006

Justin Broadrick is one of those rare humans out there in the world that seems to be driven by the exploration of sound, with a similarly-evolving trajectory in art and music that we have. When we first met, we had both been around long enough to carve our own unique marks in the sonic landscape. Neurosis was, in part, inspired by Godflesh and the way they changed the sound of heavy music forever. As much as we found the need to deconstruct our rock band format and distill sound into its pure essence, Justin - alongside Diarmuid Dalton - seemed to be doing the same with his project, FINAL. In the first years of Neurot when we actually made the decision to release music other than our own, thus curating our own brotherhood of sound, Justin was one of the first people we wanted to work with.

In 2006, we finally got that chance, releasing Broadrick and Dalton’s FINAL: 3. It is a contemplative journey of hidden melody in a dreamlike haze: sonic cloud-like shapes, dissolving and reforming with an uplifting bliss. We’re proud to have had a hand in seeing it come to life. — Steve Von Till
