they're fucking brilliant, just discovered them.
panopticon is totally epic
Awesome band - check out Oceanic and the 'In the Fishtank' collaboration with Aereogramme.
But before hearing them i know they're not better than Dylan.
ISIS (always fully capitalise. ALWAYS.) are all kinds of awesome. You definitley need Oceanic next but also investigate the more recent stuff - don't be put off by the metaler-than-thou brigade who pour scorn on the most recent 2 albums because they have the odd 'clean' vocal part.
Panopticon is great but Oceanic...nothing can compare.
He has a really good singing voice. The metal voice is not as strong imo.
Its all I have listened to all week. The bit on "Ghost key" were everything breaks down apart from the guitar and then everyone joins back in is sensational.
I can't wait to get into Oceanic, as its supposedly the best. I would listen to it now but Wavering Radiant is keeping me entertained at the moment.
and holy shit!
that's what i thought!
then it was get everything i can by them
but the first three songs on In The Wrist of Kings are fucking incredible, shame that that album lulls a bit in the middle whereas Panopticon is so fucking tight all the way through it's not even funny. Oceanic and Wavering Radiant are still both excellent but don't aren't on the same scale as those two for me.
is their best to me, especially in terms of mix and mastering, it has much more personnality than panopticon for instance, which has a more average production. technically probably better, but less interesting.
that really reminds me of The Cure's Disintegration.
Sorry to be a twat, but the record referred to above as In the Wrist of Kings is in fact called In the Absence of Truth.
on in the absence of truth
Probably rewrote it after reading someone elses. Balls.
I just knew they would be my kind of thing after seeing the name floating around for years. Stunning set.
