I just think they are straight boring. Vocals are boring, guitar is boring, and songs are too long.

some kind of blend of post-rock (Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, Godspeed You Black Emperor) mixed in with a bunch of heavier stuff.


edit
haha, I see some people have gone and invented a new gerne for them and other similiar bands: post-metal

hell yes,.. the water feeling is particularly apparent on oceanic (duh!),.. but it really feels as if a massive ocean controls you,.. Carry would be my favourite off that album. They have a really dark vibe to their music too.

I've seen a bunch of people complaining that the new album (not out till October) sucks. How? I personally think its great, its typical Isis (in a good way) and they continue to lead the new genre that is atmospheric sludge (if you ask me) Probably better then Panopticion. Anyone heard the leaked album, what do you think?

...no offense but have you ever heard Opeth?

Isis is awesome, the more I listen to Panopticon the better it gets.

Turns out I'm not seeing them supporting Tool since

a) I'm not going to see Tool again
b) Mastodon are supporting them where I live.
