Through Silver in Blood is the fifth album from the California-based avant-garde metal band Neurosis. The album was released on April 23, 1996, and was their first record to be released under record label Relapse Records. The album was reissued in July 2009 on Neurot Recordings.

Bassist and vocalist Dave Edwardson described the album as "more of an epic undertaking than the last one. We know how to get a lot more out of one note these days and we are a lot more trance-oriented in our music as far as wanting it to be overwhelming and aggressive but at a constant flow. We were trying to develop a record that was like one song that actually means more from the beginning to the end than it does individually."[4]

Through Silver in Blood is the first Neurosis album to feature keyboardist Noah Landis.
