22 Years Ago: NEUROSIS release Through Silver in Blood

We basically knew what we were going for. I'd say this record is more of an epic undertaking than the last one. We know how to get a lot more out of one note these days and we are a lot more trance-oriented in our music as far as wanting it to be overwhelming and aggressive but at a constant flow. We were trying to develop a record that was like one song that actually means more from the beginning to the end than it does individually.
The process was a lot more natural and that was something that we had started to experience on the last record. We didn't have to be more cerebral, we could actually be more gut with the way it came out and trusting the engineer [Billy Anderson] we were working with.

NEUROSIS released their fifth album, Through Silver in Blood, on this day in 1996.

Regarding the date: 2nd April is the earliest corroborated date I can find, but it could have been later (23rd being another possibility).

[the meaning of the album title] is one of the vague ideas that mean something to us and not the listener. I don't know if I can really go into it but basically, it is a very spiritual statement to us dealing with humanity's place in the cosmos and dealing directly with alchemy and psychedelics.
