CORRECTIONS HOUSE: Revolver Premieres New Hymn From Last City Zero

Today the deviants at Revolver unveil "Bullets and Graves," the latest paean of mechanical decomposition from audio offenders, CORRECTIONS HOUSE. An industrialized melee of primal animosity and subsonic grit, "Bullets and Graves" comes by way of the cult's impending debut, Last City Zero, set for release via Neurot Recordings late next month.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE is the collective musical extractions of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury. Already commended for exploring "a soundscape that is doomed and destroyed without using the traditional sounds of extreme metal," in an 8/10 review by Decibel Magazine, Last City Zero was produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu's Lair and provides an eight-track, near 50-minute investigative excursion of verse and orchestration that is at once beautifully hideous, graceful and terrifying - a true manifestation of societal ruin and psychological decay.

"Bullets and Graves" is the planet-rupturing sound of steel falling from the sky. Get injured, courtesy of Revolver Magazine, at THIS LOCATION.

Additionally, gluttons for punishment can still sample the mournful tide of "Run Through The Night," currently streaming at Vice/Noisey (Germany) at THIS LOCATION as well as opening track, "Serve or Survive," at Pitchfork HERE.

Last City Zero will be released in North America on October 29, 2013 via Neurot Recordings.

  • 11/23/2013 Roseland Theater - Portland, OR w/ Tragedy, The Body [info]
  • 5/03/2014 Temples Festival - Bristol, UK [info]


In 2012 NEUROSIS released their monumental tenth studio album, Honor Found In Decay, which went on to receive countless plaudits from the press on a global scale, and was positioned highly in end of year polls, as always reaffirming why the band remains one of the most significant heavy acts in existence. Since 1985 NEUROSIS surpassed the boundaries of any genre, never ceasing to mutate and progress their songwriting and sonic delivery, and never failing to mesmerize audiences both in the studio and onstage.

"Those who prefer their epics harrowing, their atmospheres apocalyptic and their metaphorical gut punches landed squarely on the emotional solar plexus will not be disappointed." - Decibel

"For 27 years, the members of Neurosis have demonstrated what metal can be and what it can aspire to: transcendent, cathartic, graceful, innovative." - National Public Radio

“…officially upped the ante for all the post-metal bands who ought to be paying these guys royalties for their patent on psychedelic purgation...” – Spin

"Another spiritual journey into the very heart of mankind. Completely and utterly mind-blowing." - Metal Hammer

“The most stunning aspects of Honor Found In Decay come from Neurosis' grasp of ever, in the hands of these uncompromising sorcerers, true heaviness can be as much about the directness as disorientation, and as much about the sinister rumble as an unearthly roar. 5/5” - Terrorizer

"...doesn't abandon the moody sprawl of the band's last few full-lengths, but it does help restore urgency to an aesthetic that seemed in danger of growing soporific... It's a record that proves these grizzled artisans still know how to flex their muscles." - Pitchfork
