When "Fletcher-Munson" began to sprout up in columns, we settled the question whether we would be hearing something from Neurosis or more before a project that follows, more or less faithfully in the footsteps of Scott Kelly and Co. In fact, the British Naisian not only must be familiar with the work of that seminal band or the deceased Isis, also one of its key references.
