Speaking of cohesive song structure, Isis throws all that out the window. This awesome band is all about density, vibe and structural development, which requires patience on the part of the listener. Sometimes it’s beautiful, sometimes it’s brutal, and it’s almost always hypnotic. They laid the colors of what modern metal can encapsulate. Disparager adores the colors that Isis has given metal. I suppose I can’t help but “piece” these colors into mostly conventional songs, but that’s my natural inclination, that’s what I’m going to fucking do. But Isis takes you on a journey, and they’re the best. There are many imitators, myself being one, to an extent, but there will never be another Isis.
