I listened to about 4 Isis albums last night. "Altered course" is possibly the most moving piece of music I've ever heard. I will forever regret not seeing them last time they were down here

negative, they played shows throughout the summer.

Well yeah, but they announced them breaking up then I believe. I almost saw them on the farewell tour, but my ride bailed ;_;

Been listening to Mamiffer and Jodis. Pretty cool stuff. Didn't Aaron have a black metal project going, as well? I wanna say it was Old Man Gloom, but they aren't exactly black metal from what I've heard.
My gear:
Schecter C-1+ w/ Seymour duncan Jazz (neck) and Full Shred (bridge), with Sperzels
B-52 LG-100A 4x12 half stack
Rogue LX405 Bass
Yamaha classical
Some sort of acoustic Squier
Boss Flanger
Lyon Chorus

Aaron is a part of Old Man Gloom, but they are definitely not black metal, they're another post-metal group.

He's the guitarist in Twilight, a USBM band. Don't know what they sound like though.
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

Yeah, it's Twilight. Someone on the SMN boards posted a song a few months back, I thought it was good.

EDIT: Is he just the guitarist? I thought he was the vocalist too, for some reason..

I'm waiting for Old Man Gloom to pick back up. And that album is my favorite of theirs.

Oh wow, I'll have to get on that. I went on an Isis binge a few weeks ago, forgot how much I love them.

I already have a shirt by them, so I think I'll just download the albums. I'm excited for them, though.

Yeah I'm not fussed about the shirts. I probably can't even afford all the albums, so I might just get a couple.

Now, if they were to compile it into a giant vinyl collection, I may bite..

I'm positive he does at least some backing vocals. I can definitely hear him at the end of Red Fields.

Did you know that Harris, Clifford Meyer and Caxide are recording some shit together and they're looking forward to publish it ? Should be interesting. (ok Turner was the genius and the ''mind'' of the band but Harris is a superb drummer and I quite like Clifford Meyer's shit with Red Sparowes).

So I just started listening to ISIS (apparently years late, but oh well. Didn't used to listen to any growling. I really like their growling for some reason). Pretty much I've had Wavering Radiant on repeat.

For someone who doesn't like metal a whole ton (but is very open minded) is it worth diggin into the rest of their albums? Or does Wavering Radiant stand apart so much that I'd be displeased?

All of their albums are worth checking into in my opinion. But you can see a clear progression with each album until Wavering Radiant. They all have their own flavor and I would highly recommend Panopticon and Oceanic most definitely.

I'd say work backwards. Definitely agree with Panopticon and Oceanic, although they're both a lot more claustrophobic with less clarity in the vocal department.

I have Isis' "Wavering Radiant". What albums should I get next? I'd like to dig more into their work.

Panopticon and Oceanic are the ones to procure, the latter featuring a particularly interesting theme of water.

Yeah, those two are the greats. Can't really go wrong with any of their stuff really though.

Thank you! I'll check out "Panopticon" first.

Imo the first 3 albums (Celestial, Oceanic, Panopticon) are essential. ITAOT and WR are less adventurous and more conventionally post-rocky; judging from some recent interviews Aaron Turner seems to be really underwhelmed on how they turned out. I think they're good albums but definitely not on par with their early stuff.

Their EP ''Mosquito Control'' deserves a spin too, Sam.

Disagree with that. I think the last two albums were both fantastic and I don't really find them to be any more conventional than the older stuff.

Don't get me wrong, I like them, there are some fantastic songs in both but I feel the first 3 records were more stylistically and thematically coherent.
