i didn't really rate In the absence of truth very highly compared to their older stuff, although it was still brilliant. Panopticon's production is just amazing, the writing is phenomenal, the build up for So did we (opening track) is just something else, and when it breaks at 6mins 14secs...well...wow.


Grinning Mouths for me. So crushing at the end; simply exhilirating. Panopticon is in my top three albums of all time, probably only behind In Their Darkened Shrines.

Anybody who likes Isis should probably check out the following:

Red Sparowes (more rock than metal though)
*shels (perfect mix between Isis and Red Sparowes with a theme of the African savannah)
Pelican
The Ocean Fracture (a bit more raw, but good nonetheless)

I would highly recommend *shels' Sea of the Dying Dhow, Red Sparowes' At the Soundless Dawn and Pelican's The Fire in our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw.

Well, I might as well plug two other bands Isis fans would like....

Mouth Of The Architect (= better than Isis, by far)
Cult Of Luna

I hope you realize that < and > are the traditional symbols for 'greater/better than' and 'lesser/worse than.' It just seems pointless to use the symbols at all when it doesn't actually economize the amount you type.

Anyway, I will make a note to check out Mouth of the Architect.

Yeah, I should have thought of that.



Autumncurve, check out "The Ties That Bind," then "Time and Withering." They also have a split with Kenoma.

...and that's pretty much their discography. A new album comes out July 8th.

They are classic. Amazing band with amazing lyrics. Check out some of their older CD's, i think they are a lot better than the newer stuff.

^ yecchh case in point sry im just being a dick. i used to jam celestial a lot in the car when it first came out. they sound huge live if you can get right up front and feel the bass. tight band. better before they got too spaced out imo.
