When the five members of Neurosis aren't cranking out their usual pummeling prog-sludge output, they're either doing rather interesting psychedelic folk records (like Scott Kelly on his own or Steve Von Till's Harvestman), or they're creating experimental material as the ambitious side-project, the mysterious Tribes of Neurot. To explain Meridian in simple terms, this is ambient music for people who hate ambient music. What this isn't is background music, as it demands your attention throughout. The first four minutes of "Duality" consists of hypnotic drones from machine created patterns before unraveling itself into a superb climactic melody. The title track is quite blissful, which can be surprising considering it's coming from the same group of people who created the sludge metal masterpiece 'Through Silver in Blood'. "Sub Aqua" sees them achieving the accomplishment combining artificial sounds with something completely organic at the same time. While every song on Meridian is pretty unique, like most ambient music, they all seem to follow a similar structure, so it's really difficult to speak in depth about about what makes each song different.
