I'm liking Wrists of Kings and especially Not in Rivers, But in Drops. My queer bassist made to mention how he thought they were trying to sound like Opeth. I think he's a tool. Best part of Not in Rivers, But in Drops for me is 2:43

I concur that your bassist is a tool. At least on this occasion lawl.

Not in Rivers... is awesome

Mega-bump.

These guys are amazing, I have In The Absence of Truth and Oceanic at the moment, Panopticon is next on the list. Perfect chilling music.

listening to isis while high was probably one of the greatest things i've ever experienced in my life.


i was leaned back in a car looking up through the sun roof as the clouds flew by, blazed.


it was beautiful.
#126
Ah, this reminds me I still haven't gotten Panopticon. I've been digging Oceanic lately. The atmosphere is absolutely crushing.

Get Panopticon.


Now.


It's fantastic. I like it more than Oceanic, even. Slightly. But I like it more. Which says a lot, coming from me.

Oceanic IS fantastic, though. It's the album that got me into the band, and the only album I had, until recently.

2:30-3:04 on Grinning Mouths is one of the most orgasmic sounds I've ever heard.

I'm going to be getting "In the Absence of Truth" later on tonight. My connection's being all wonky at the moment, and I'm afraid that if I start downloading, my internet will go out, and stop downloading until I get home from work and restart it.

Sorry for the double post.

I downloaded "In the Absence of Truth" tonight, and I absolutely love it.

So far, I think it's pretty even with Oceanic, though they're pretty different albums all together. A lot more clean vocals than previous albums, but still one HELL of an atmosphere.

I'm loving this album. A lot.

Listening to Mosquito Control right now, the heaviness makes you want to **** your pants. Oceanic and Panopticon are my favorites though. ISIS can do no wrong, every release has something different about it, yet its always amazing.
#136
Mosquito Control is definitely their heaviest work. Celestial is still my favorite, but Oceanic is a close second.

It's a great album, that's for sure. Garden of Light or Holy Tears are probably my favorites from the album.

^Broadsword: After my first listen, "Holy Tears" was my favorite, so far.

Mosquito Control is so heavy because they were basically Neurosis Jr. back then.

They hadn't COMPLETELY developed their own sound, and were just a Neurosis clone.

Nothing wrong with that, of course, but it's true, nonetheless.

I downloaded Celestial (which got me interested in the band), then Oceanic (sounded even better), then I bought Panopticon, which was my favorite for a long time, especially In Fiction. It seemed like they'd fully developed the sound they began in Oceanic (still a great album). I bought In The Absence of Truth last week. It seems slightly mellower, but at the same time just as intense and heavy as something like Panopticon. Being a drummer foremost, the more tribal rhythms are very intriguing (a bit of a Danny Carey influence, I think). I have to say that at the moment, my favorite song is the final one, Garden of Light, especially from about 5:15 to the end.

Simply put, a groundbreaking band, more people need to listen to music of this level.
#140
The drumming does a lot for the album, that's for sure. It was one of the first things I noticed upon hearing it for the first time.

I tried downloading Panopticon about two weeks ago, and you know what happened? Take a guess.
#147
I didn't know until last week that Isis collaborated with Aereogramme and released an EP. I heard it for the first time last week and I've been hooked on it. It's THE BEST EP ever, bar none.

Have you guys heard this EP? "In the Fishtank."

Quote by af_the_fragile
Hey guys...
I'm getting into Isis here.
So can anyone recommened me a good album to start from??


Hopefully you've heard their discography by now, but if you haven't, listen to "In the Absence of Truth" and "Panopticon." They're my favorites.

I'm reallllllly hoping wavering radiant won't be as lame as Absence of Truth...but we shall see. There's a live video of 20 hours / 40 days on youtube and it sounds sick...

I've been watching the "Backlit", "Grinning Mouths" and "In Fiction" live videos on YouTube so many times.

Panopticon is sooo good. But I think the one album that has changed my musical senses is Oceanic. I adore that album very much.

The Beginning And the End is one of the most amazing songs, and the lyrics are beautiful.

Panopticon was the first Isis album I got.. and wow. They blew me away. There aren't many bands like Isis around.

I think that the Mosquito Control EP is some amazing stuff as well. Love the production and riffing.

have they already released it? I've been so out of the loop with Isis, and bumped into a friend yesterday who told me they had a new album or something or other, which was a complete surprise to me

In the Fishtank was a collaboration with a post-rock band, Aereogramme. It was out in '06 and it's an amazing EP. You gotta get it if you don't have it yet.

And Wavering Radiant, their new album is coming out in May.

Correction.

There are A LOT of bands like ISIS, it's just a matter of the band being as good, and as innovative as ISIS.


There are a lot of so-called "NeurIsis" cookie cutter bands out there, and they're growing. Basically, they're just bands that took the Later Neurosis/Early-mid Isis sound, copied it, and maybe added a few tweaks.

A few bands make the formula work, like Mouth of the Architect, but the sheer amount of mediocrity out there is just insane.
