1. NEUROSIS: Fires Within Fires

Sheer beautality! Nothing compares with the raw emotion and intensity of Neurosis. And on their new platter Fires Within Fires, the deep fissures and overflowing passion is as unrelenting as you would expect from the Oakland five-piece. Less ambient and more downright punishing than more recent efforts, Fires Within Fires has had a permanent place on my turntable since it’s release.  My favourite album of 2016 - check it for equal parts brutality and beauty.
