1MM: Neurosis/Mastodon @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple

NEUROSIS: Still an enemy of the sun

While we don’t subscribe to the theory that bands like Isis are simply ripping Neurosis off–well, some bands ‘borrow’ elements from both of them, but that’s besides the point–the Bay area vets certainly showed their followers how it’s done Thursday night at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. Words honestly don’t do this show any justice, so here are some shots from the band’s never-ending set. (Some other recommended photos are here at Crustcake too.) Oh, by the way: Mastodon was incredible as well in their hour-plus supporting slot despite rampant sound problems–namely the fact that every song sounded like a distorted collection of labyrinth-like chords. Photos and MP3s after the jump …
