My friend Anthony at Decibel sent me the following email the other day:

Did you happen to read the recent issue of Metal Maniacs with Neurosis on the cover? In an interview with the guy from Dawnbringer, he responds to a question about Dawnbringer having a sort of idiosyncratic take on traditional metal by saying that he thinks he's exploring trad metal's limits, not perverting it. What IS a perversion of metal? Among other things, "Decibel comparing Nachtmystium to Missy Elliot with a straight face."

I didn't know comparing one of my favorite bands to one of the most creative, talented and successful artists of the last decade was so perverse.
