Isis live, they play their stuff perfectly live, maybe even better than on record.

recently saw both of these bands live(last week), and would most definetly go with isis. their sound comes across perfectly on stage, with all of the atmosphere of the lp's intact..i believe there set was mostly composed of tracks from wavering radiant...it was all excellent stuff. pelican was good too, although they sounded a bit muddy live, perhaps it was the venue.

Isis hands down. Pelican's pretty cool, but Isis is the bee's knees as it were. They just have a larger catalog, and overall more dynamic approach in my opinion. However, they are a great pair for touring purposes; the show in Chicago on the 12th o' June will be amazing no doubt Big smile

I've seen both, but Isis was headlining, so thats not fair to compare.
 
I'd see Pelican. I like them a bit more, and there music just seems so uplifting and monumental to me, especially their earlier stuff. A band that has yet to make a bad album IMO.
