Being a fan of most types of underground metal, as well as most "progressional" music, this album was a god-send for me. Released in 1993, a time when the grunge scene was starting, Tool were preparing "Opiate" and Morbid Angel released "Blessed are the Sick", this album fitted in seemlessly to what was going on around it. But now it seems harder to categorise as it fits in with nothing around today, which is what makes Neurosis so compounding. Combining spoken words in with the lyrics and msuic, in "Burning Flesh in Year of Pig" is a report from the Burning Priest in Vietnam- the same scene depicted on the cover of Rage Against the Machine's eponymous debut, this albums is also very disturbing in some ways. Dave Edwardson's vocals are emotional, a cross between Ozzy Osbourne and Dom Lawson (Matter/Bowl Rider)and his bass is prominent and riddled with effects.
This album is a very risky experiment in music, and the risk pays off, with and album that intertwines a message with agression and also beauty. I highly recommend this, but not neccecarily worth the money on import.

HASH(0x8fea148c) out of 5 stars Powerful God-like Metal 16 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Neurosis' unconventional(for its time) integration of smaples and keyboards into a basic band setup transformed 'Souls at Zero's standard three-chord rage into a post-hardcore apocalypse, but it was 'Enemy of the Sun' that truly scorched the earth. Baleful opener 'Lost' threatened to buckle under its own devastating weight, 'Raze the Stray' was like a giant star collapsing, the three-pronged vocal attack of Dave Edwardson, Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till screaming and bellowing as though their children had just been slaughtered in front of them. Yet for every blast of cauterising noise, there were passages of eerie quiet, and increased dexterity with samples yielded organic rather than incidental effects and were employed for maximum impact. It was their finest, most consumed moment-one that has yet to be matched, even by themselves.
