5 stars Isis return for a masterpiece.

Isis, arguably the godfathers of post-metal along with Neurosis, release a stunning album after 2004's genre-defining Panopticon. Aaron Turner experiments with more melodic vocals, building along with slower climaxes than earlier Isis albums. Drummer Aaron Harris keeps the drumming more tribal than previous albums, and I see some clear influences from Tool. The guitar duo of Mike Gallagher and Aaron Turner keep the guitars light and spacey when it's necessary and brutally heavy when the epic climaxes occur. Isis take it where they've never been before.

Recommended for all fans of post-rock, post-metal, and progressive metal in general.
