A METALSUCKS EXCLUSIVE: NEURAXIS GUITARIST ROB MILLEY’S “MONTREAL ASSAULT” TOUR BLOG #1! PLUS THE PREMIERE OF NEURAXIS’ NEW “DARKNESS PREVAILS” VIDEO!!!
We loved Neuraxis’ 2008 release, The Thin Line Between, so much that the opportunity to have guitarist Rob Milley do an exclusive tour blog for MetalSucks was too good an opportunity to pass up. Below, check out Rob’s first entry; then, after the jump, check out the super duper special exclusive premiere of the new video for the band’s face melting “Darkness Prevails.” Enjoy, and check back here for more updates from Rob!
Hey people, Rob from Neuraxis here. Welcome to the first installment of “The Montreal Assault Tour Blog.” I want to send a huge hails to MetalSucks for giving us the chance to post our “extraordinary” road stories for you for the next month.
To start things off, for those who aren’t familiar with Neuraxis, we are from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Our name might sound like the band Neurosis, but we sound nothing like them. Imagine a sound that can be extreme and brutal and at the same time display a sense of melody and detail to challenging music. Neuraxis has been around for almost 15 years, with 6 albums under our belts including our new album The Thin Line Between, which was released this July on Prosthetic Records worldwide.
We’ve done a fair amount of touring throughout Canada, Europe and Japan over the years, but now we are really putting our focus on the U.S. As I write this, we are about to leave for “The Montreal Assault Tour,” which features a lineup of some of our longest and closest friends: Despised Icon, Beneath The Massacre, The Plasmarifle and Carnifex. Apart from Carnifex, its all Montreal bands invading the Red, White and Blue. I have a good feeling that there are going to be some good times to be had, and that’s something that we are going to report back on with this tour blog. Anyone who is reading this and planning to come to one of these shows, please come by our merch table to say “Hi” and hang out.
Most importantly, I want to announce the debut of our video “Darkness Prevails” from our new album. We finished this at the end of last summer before leaving for the Summer Slaughter Canada Tour. The video was directed by our good buddy Chris Alsop (Torn Within). The concept was very simple: Capture the intensity and energy that Neuraxis strives to give at every one of our live concerts. Simple as that.
Stay tuned for more blog installments from the other guys in Neuraxis as well. We will keep you updated a few times a week. Cheers!
