Fires Within Fires is the eleventh studio album by Neurosis, a band I have been following since I was a teenager, that’s 25 years!!!! The album was released on September 23, 2016, via the band’s own record label, Neurot Recordings. I am very grateful to have teamed up with their record label Neurot and my good friends at Deathwish to make available for the first time, museum quality prints of the art I created for this album.
Making art for them has been a dream of mine and always seemed like it would be out of my league. So when I started making t-shirt art for the band and working with them on solo album projects I was honored and humbled to say the least.
When the opportunity arose to make an album cover for them, I jumped at the chance and poured every bit of creative energy into the project, creating not just a cover but a full album package and layout for the gatefold LP, even down to hand painting the bands logo, album titles and writing the lyrics page with recording info.
I wanted this piece of work to be a landmark achievement for my creative outlet that I like to call painting but at times feel is just illustration. It was a hard project to get a visual grasp of as I didn’t want to embed my artistic personality into their music and also wanted to represent their monumental legacy and iconic visual identity without repeating previous art they have used.
Carrying themes from their lyrics and weighted music, this was the final outcome……
Like Neurosis’ previous albums, Fires Within Fires combines “elements from the post-metal genre they co-created with elements of industrial, doom, punk and folk”.
