4 stars ISIS in my opinion is one of the greatest post-metal and sludge metal bands out there. Not only did they help post- metal and sludge metal evolve, they also helped establish post-metal. Oceanic is an over an hour long but it does not get boring. Aaron Turner and co. deliver an epic that is atmospheric and heavy at the same time. There is also minimal vocals on this album, with the main focus being the instrumentation. Oceanic is a great start for someone getting into post-metal, sludge metal, or just the band. While it is not their best offering, it is a great start for anyone looking for it.
