Marketing Highlights

Rooted in the heavy metal and punk/hardcore aesthetic, Isis' music relies just as heavily on ambience, atmosphere, and tone as it does complexity and aggression. Not so much a band per se as a musical collective, the members of the Boston-based quintet layer their compositions with feedback, power chords, quiet/loud dynamics, and vocals that are sometimes shouted, frequently screamed, and occasionally sung. The band was formed by Hydra Head Records owner Aaron Turner, who was hoping to combine the minimalism of Earth and the Melvins with the experimentalism of Godflesh, backed by the depth and power of the band's most obvious musical counterpart, Neurosis. It was the union of Turner with bassist Jeff Caxide and powerhouse drummer Aaron Harris that formed the core of the Isis project in 1997.

In 2010, Isis announced their decision to break up, and later that year they played their last show in Montreal.

Aaron Harris, Jeff Caxide, and Clifford Meyer went on to form Palms with Deftones singer, Chino Moreno in 2013. Aaron Turner continues with his many bands like, Mamiffer, Sumac and Split Cranium.

Recorded from a Soundwave side show at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne, Australia on Feb 25, 2010.

Bio

Although rooted heavy metal and the punk/hardcore aesthetic, Isis’ music relies just as heavily on ambience, atmosphere, and tone as it does complexity and aggression. Not so much a band per se as a musical collective, the members of the Boston-based quintet layer their compositions with feedback, power chords, quiet/loud dynamics, and vocals that are sometimes shouted, frequently screamed, and occasionally sung. The band was formed by Hydra Head Records owner Aaron Turner, who was hoping to combine the minimalism of Earth and the Melvins with the experimentalism of Godflesh, backed by the depth and power of the band’s most obvious musical counterpart, Neurosis. It was the union of Turner with bassist Jeff Caxide and powerhouse drummer Aaron Harris that formed the core of the Isis project in 1997.

In 2010, Isis announced their decision to break up, and later that year they played their last show in Montreal.
