They were awesome last night. They opened with "So Did We," but that's the only song I knew out of the 4 to 5 song set.

EDIT: Let me take a moment to fix and laugh at my spelling errors.

Noice! Definitely one of their best songs, and probably the best one off Panopticon

They have a lot of references to towers, especially in the early releases. Is that referring to anything particular or is it open to interpretation?

Got their dvd yesterday, "Cleaning Up The Eye". Pretty good, it involves a bunch of random song performances from both early and late days, and a full australian set, a video (can't remember what the song was, but they only have one video) and a photo gallery/discography. Good sound on most shows, except maybe for the early ones. Some reeeeeeallly overcaffeinated camera work on one of the videos. Presentation both cover and menus is pretty sweet too, fits the band and the music.

Isis are great they are currently touring with Tool. Panopticon is there best much better than Celestial and Oceanic. It's nice to mellow out to Isis after listening to Converge and Sikth.

Heh personally I prefer all their other releases over Panopticon, which is still a great album

I saw them live when they were opening for Tool. They're great live! My favourites are So Did We, and Backlit. Also, does anyone here know what tuning the guys from Isis use? Is it Drop D down 1 1/2 steps, or something else?

^ He speaketh the truth

And yeah, what tuning do they use? Whenever I attempt to play along with bands like this (Cult of Luna, Pelican, etc.) the lowest note is always a B, so I always just assume they use 7 strings, or down two and a half steps, but I may be wrong.

In Fiction owns. They are great for kindof relaxing metal. I find them unique in a way that no one really sounds like them.

Whole album is amazing

The Minus Times has to be a devastatingly loud song live

Wish they played their old stuff live still

Yeah, I'd love to see TMT live. I tend to like their early material just a little bit more than the Panopticon stuff
