    Panopticon is my favorite by Isis


    Pelican is way better but that's just my personal opinion. Check out the self titled 4 track album and Australasia... the new one hasn't grown on me too much yet.


    Another band you might want to check out is Totimoshi. They just played here a couple of weeks ago and I thought some of their stuff souded like Pelican with vocals and a spanish guitar influence.

      Isis is one of my all time fav bands. Pelican is alright, but I dont think they have the songwriting skills Isis have. Some of their songs kinda leave me empty handed.

      You guys should check out Red Sparowes. Its one of the guys from Isis and some other dudes. It's not as heavy, but it is definately some great music.

BORING!!!

        Isis = puts people to sleep faster than recorded ocean sounds on tape


        I saw them open for Napalm Death in 2001 and unfortunately I would have to agree. However, the keyboard player had his keyboard on this highly flexible stand so he could sort of headbang while playing, which was fun to watch.

          Pelican is the ****************. But Agalloch is better. If you haven't heard "The Mantle", you have to. Now.

            You didn't need to edit. Your point was quite valid.

              I saw Red Sparrowes opening for Pelican fairly recently and I thought Pelican was great, but red sparrowes kinda left me cold. They were just kinda sloppy and not good; didn't do anything for me.

                  Their album is the same way, but I really appreciate what could be if they would tighten it up. The recording is terrible, too.

                    Isis rules. Everyone needs to listen to them.
                    Thanks be to God for heavy metal! (But praise be to Satan.)

                          yeah...I'm already planning on getting that.

                                oceanic is more like panopticon, both are a bit of a step down in 'heavyosity' compared to the earlier stuff, IMO
