What we’ve got here is everything that’s always been typical for Neurosis - apocalyptic soundscapes, tribal drums, lyrical mood, gloom... Given to the Rising is emotionally diverse, but not colorful... more like gray, embracing the whole black-and-white spectrum. This is maybe one of the most varied doom albums ever released, shrouding all of the genre’s faces in 70 minutes. The louder you listen to this album, the deeper it takes you. And, believe me, there is definitely some depth in there.

On Given to the Rising, Neurosis have taken all they've learn't from years of pummelling and all the side projects the've ventured into and created another monster. It's got the trademark riffage of course, but it's interspersed with passages that could be from Kelly or Von Till's folky side projects and ambient electronics that could be Tribes of Neurot. 'Shadow' and 'Nine' are even short spoken word pieces. Close listens really show how much time, effort and soul Neurosis put into their music. Given to the Rising shits all over 95% of heavy music nowadays and shows us why they're still here and still making awesome records like this
