Isis (6)

Profile:
ISIS (original official capitalization) were a Los Angeles, California-based experimental / psychedelic / progressive metal band originally founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1997, in the vein of Neurosis, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Godflesh.

On May 18, 2010, the band announced that they were disbanding. The statement said that they had "done everything we wanted to do, said everything we wanted to say," citing an agreement the band made early on to end before pushing "past the point of a dignified death." The final lineup reunited on October 13, 2018, to pay tribute to Caleb Scofield, and performed under the name Celestial due to the association of their namesake since disbanding.

Final line-up:
Aaron Turner - guitar, vocals
Bryant Clifford Meyer - electronics, guitar, vocals
Aaron Harris - drums
Michael Gallagher - guitar
Jeff Caxide - bass

Former members:
Chris Mereschuk - electronics, vocals (1998-1999)
Jay Randall - electronics, vocals (1999-2000)

ISIS (6) is also credited as copyright holder.

Within their respective genre, I feel like Isis is at the top of the heap. You could compare them to other bands like Neurosis, but that would be a disservice all around. Isis is vastly different and just superior, as far as I'm concerned. If you want aggressive walls of sound that tear your face off, choose Isis. If you want beautiful soundscapes that send chills up your spine and give you goosebumps, choose Isis. Oceanic is a great album if you want a taste of everything they're capable of.

For the first time, i read about this Boston band in the local newspaper and decided to give it a listen. They are certainly worthy of praise and appreciation and far from being Neurosis clones as some people label them. Each album is conceptual - it have its own subject (for example - water or skies). In terms of vocals, Aaron Turner provides screaming/whispered vocals in the vein of afromentioned Neurosis, but the band is also adding ambient interludes between some songs. Hopefully, with the release of their new album, they will get more attention.
