Oakland, California’s Neurosis headlined the Apocalypse Stage (we’re actually finding ourselves checking out a lot of performances on the small third stage) on Day 1 of Heavy Montreal, and they drew an intense crowd. This is, after all, “serious” for “serious” metalheads. It was a dark, ambient, and haunting set, as any fan might expect, but the sound was perfect and heavy. It was darkly beautiful, and so awesome to witness the crowd engaged in a hypnotic trance.
