Isis - Celestial (CD)
Catalog number: EA07.7
Boston's Isis release their first full length on Escape Artist Records. This much-anticipated record is overwhelming in its heaviness and awesome in its expanse. Celestial simultaneously escalates their thunderous assault and explores infinite shades of mood and sound. Precise, devastating, and unmercifully chaotic, Isis have brought us one of the best 'heavy' albums of the year.
These lads play super heavy yet groovacious metal with that token Neurosis sound mixed with the a little Godflesh. They've achieved a very hypnotic droning landscape leaving behind their more crunchy hardcore roots.
