|Neurosis (Inc.), metal band from Colombia - (South America) was formed in mid 1987. At first they began playing songs of bands such as Slayer, Destruction,
Kreator, Venom and Exodus. The very first concerts were carried out in Bogota starting from January 1988. Then the band began to compose their own songs
that later on were recorded (May of 1991) in their first and only demo entitled "Mas Alla de la Demencia" ("Beyond Dementia"). This demo contains 10 songs
in Spanish and 2.000 copies were sold of its original version. This demo was re-released in December of 1997 with an improved artwork but conserving the
original front cover. It was re-released again on CD format (including 4 bonus live tracks) in 2005.
In 1993 Jorge Mackenzie assumes the leadership of the band and also changes from playing the bass guitar to the guitar. There is a change in the line-up
and with this new line-up the band begins to compose new songs with the purpose of recording a CD. In September of 1994 Neurosis Inc. enters one of the
best recording studios in the country called "Audiovison". Eleven new songs are recorded (5 in English and 6 in Spanish) and the CD is entitled "Verdun
1916", which later was released by an independent Colombian label called "Talisman Music". Two thousand copies were sold and this album definitely
opened space for the band and got the band to be known all around the country. Concerts were held in the most important cities of Colombia such as
Medellin, Cali, Bucaramanga, Tunja, Pereira, etc. and a professional video clip on the song "Verdun 1916" was recorded for Latin MTV and rotated during
several weeks in "Headbangers Ball". All this happened at the end of 1995 and beginning of 1996. By March of this same year Neurosis Inc. carried their first
international show in Quito (Ecuador) sharing stage with Mexican death metal band Cenotaph for 800 brutal fans.
On its return to Colombia Neurosis Inc. enters once more the "Audiovison" studios to record their second album entitled "Karma". This CD was mixed in the
United States and released in October of 1996. It was distributed in Spain by Repulse Records, in Japan by Soundholic Co., Argentina by Furias, Belgium
and Holland by Painkiller Records as well as in other countries such as Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. At the present time this album is sold out as the 1.000
copies pressed were sold.
During this time the Neurosis of the United States contacts the band to inform them of their existence and the problems that could arise due to this fact. The
Colombian Neurosis decides to add the particle INC. to their original name to differ a little and to try and avoid confusions.
In 1998 Neurosis Inc. planned to record a live CD which was finally recorded on December 5th, 1998 in Bogota with a complete new line-up. Songs of the
whole discography of the band were recorded and also 2 tributes : "Black Magic" of Slayer and "Ace of Spades" of Motorhead. During this year the band also
played in Medellin and Bogota with the band Criminal from Chile and visited new cities such as Ibague and Villavicencio.
The band also appeared in a CD compilation of the Canadian label "Impaler Records" with the song "The White Man" taken from the "Karma" album. One
thousand copies were distributed worldwide for specialized media in countries such as Italy, Germany, Russia, the United States, Canada, Sweden and
Colombia among others.
In June of 1999 the third CD of the band entitled "Odas en Concierto" ("Odes Live") is released including 13 live tracks and 4 new studio bonus tracks. Now
their South American Tour begins "Disturbing the Continent 1999" which crossed 4 cities in Colombia, 2 in Ecuador, 3 in Peru, 2 in Bolivia, 1 in Chile and
1 in Argentina, something never done by a metal band before. This tour lasted almost 2 months and generated the best comments on behalf of the assisting
public and the specialized media.
In July of 2000 the band entered the studios to record 3 new songs and Black Sabbath´s "Children of the Grave". Keyboards were included and also a new
vocalist, Harold Escobar. The recording was a complete success turning out to be the best recording ever done by the band. All the songs were recorded in
English and finally released in May 2001 by Neuro Music.
In July 2002 "The Box Records", an independent Colombian label realeases the CD-ROM "15 Years at War", which includes 14 remastered tracks and 2
videos. This is a special CD edition to conmemorate the 15 years of the band.
Right after this the band played in different cities in Colombia : Cali, Tulua, Cucuta, Bucaramanga, Manizales and Bogota. In May 2003 the second edition
of "15 Years at War" is re-released by "Eternal Night Records" and the band continues playing around the country (Ibague - audience 5,000) finishing in
Bogota at an Open Air Festival which lasts for 3 days called "Rock al Parque", the biggest open-air rock Festival in South America. After a series of bands,
Neurosis Inc., headlining the "Metal Day" plays just before Monstrosity (USA) in front of 80,000 people.
In November 2003 the band enters the studio to record a new CD entitled "Subversivos Espirituales" ("Spiritual Subversives"), in this recording Hamilton
Castro recorded the drums and Jorge Mackenzie all guitars, bass and keyboards. A new singer is included in the band, Diego Melo and it´s him who records
the vocals for this CD. Now with Diego and other new members, the band plays a few shows in Bogota and other cities.
"Spiritual Subversives" features 11 tracks - 8 new songs, from these 7 are in Spanish and 1 is in English - one Venom cover "Countess Bathory" with Jorge´s
arrangements and the remaining 2 tracks are songs previously recorded in other albums, in 1995 and 1996, but re-arranged and re-recorded - now sounding
faster and more powerful. In April 2005 Neurosis Inc. signs to metal Colombian label "Hateworks" and the CD is released in July 2005 and distributed by
Century Media Records world-wide. The band performed several shows nationwide to promote the new album headlining different metal festivals all around
Colombia. In October 2005 Neurosis Inc. played once again at "Rock al Parque" Festival (after a series of knock-out rounds the band finishes in 3rd place
among more than 200 bands). The "Rock al Parque" Fest is the biggest open-air festival in Latin America and in 2005 Neurosis Inc. shares stage with
Apocalyptica and Suicidal Tendencies among other bands. IN April of 2006 Neurosis Inc. tours Venezuela with five shows and returns to Colombia playing
in other cities promoting "Subversivos Espirituales". In December 2006 the band enters the studio once more to record their eighth album "Masters of
Thrash". This CD includes cover songs to bands that have influenced the band´s career such as Hallows Eve, Slayer, Asphyx and more (check the whole
