Isis

So great. I'm into the sludgy atmospheric post rock/punk stuff these days (whatever you want to call it). Neurosis, Pelican and Cult Of Luna as well, but this is on ISIS... They are good... Really good. I have their discography and Panopticon and Oceanic are some wicked awsome albums. Any opinions?

Yeah, Isis is a great band, along with all the ones you mentioned. Just really atmospheric stuff that doesn't get boring. Oceanic is an awesome album, "False Light" is an excellent song.

if you took the vocals out of that, and blindfolded me, i'd say it was opeth :P.

I got Oceanic a while back. I feel like I'm missing something because I don't see what you guys are talkin about. I'm not too keen on the vocals. I'm more into riff-based sludge anyway (Iron Monkey/Eyehategod kind of stuff)


But yeah I'll give it a few more listens just because I love you all so much.

Always prefered Neurosis and Pelican over Isis to be honest, but all three are damn good.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

The Red Sea EP is well worth getting hold of, seems a thousand years from Panopticon.


Dirty boy Aaron Turner.

The PigDestroyer split is pretty good too.

Thanks for this!


I love me some Isis. As cliche as it sounds, the best time to listen to them is at night with your door closed and lights turned off. Really atmospheric and they have that underwater feel to them.

Upon another listen, Isis are pretty good very atmospheric and moody which I liked. Still not digging the vocals though.

Isis are pretty awesome, although I agree with the general consensus that Neurosis is better. I am a bit of a Neurosis freak...
