Isis return with a fine record. After "In The Absence Of Truth", which I found slightly patchy (and wasn't overly fond of the drum sound), they have changed their approach to recording by actually all being present and correct in the studio for long periods. This has paid off, with a very cohesive recording. It really works as an album, I find that if I put it on that I have to listen to the full record in its entirety.

Standouts for me are the bookends, "Hall Of The Dead" and "Threshold Of Transformation", whilst "Ghost Key" incorporates more of Cliff Meyer's keyboard stylings than we've heard in the past. The title track neatly splits the album into two halves, and provides some nice respite amidst the generally heavy music. Turner still bellows and screams, which for me is the only downside to Isis, as I prefer clean vocals and can only really accept that people go for guttural shouts because they can't really sing. But vocals aren't really the point of Isis - the music is the reason that you're here in the first place. Harris' drumming is excellent throughout, improving on what I felt became too repetitive on ITAOT. Interestingly enough I think the standout players on this album are the bassist Jeff Caxide, who has a very nice tone throughout (listen to "Ghost Key", I always find that type of tone sounds "watery" or "aquatic" for lack of better words); and Cliff Meyer coming to the fore with some nice turns on the keyboard.

Overall, Isis didn't really need to do too much to improve on previous efforts, but what they have achieved on "Wavering Radiant" is a qualitative improvement in style. It incorporates all of their best elements and brings them together to make a most engaging metal record. If you like your metal with intelligence and imagination, then you will find this one of the best albums of 2009.

Isis are one of those bands that create debate.
Amongst the metal crowd they can be critized for being too dull, a bit samey or simply not heavy enough.
I guess this all depends where you are coming from as a listener.
I am a huge fan of extreme metal for example, but have a passion for what is termed "post-rock", so coming across bands that lean this way always excites me.
When i first got switched on to Isis (a friend forced me to borrow Oceanic) they were highly criticized by another friend for being a simple Neurosis rip off. But then i did argue, if your going to rip off anyone, Neurosis is a pretty good place to start.
Isis seem to blend chunky heavy riffs with a mezmerizing beauty, which is why i believe they are so special.
They are one of a few bands (Neurosis included) that, no matter what mood you are in, you can put on one of their albums and be instantly satisfied.
This is a rare thing and i guess very subjective, but i think Isis hit the nail on the head. The swirling high pitched sustained lead guitar cuts through the thudding chunky riffs and elavates the music into something euphoric.
A fine example is the albums closing track "Threshold of Transformation" which thuds along kicking and screaming for just over 5minutes before suddenly slowing the pace right down and creating something of sheer beauty akin to Mono or Godspeed You! Black Emperor, which demands to be put on repeat the moment it fades out.
So in essence, Isis are a spendid band who create some awesome music.

Please, please, please, listen to this with an open mind. This is easily their best album. It includes lots of organ work, some great inventive guitar and bass and the drum work is amazing. IT IS NOT HEAVY METAL (1 star crazy, pete), IT IS POST ROCK, at its best. Touches of Pink Floyd in places but not the nicey nicey Floyd, the sound is very much Meddle, rough sounding as well as beautiful. All the album should be listened to as one like all great albums but the last two tracks are really something else. Don't expect Metal Music, ISIS HAVE NEVER BEEN METAL, you will be dissappointed and so you should be, open your mind and let ISIS in.

Progression doesn't have to be extravagant, oh no. Isis have progressed over the years, whilst maintaining the consistency that has seen them rise to prominence. Its difficult to believe that this is Isis' fifth full-length and that they've been around for longer than a decade because they still play with the same enthusiasm that took their sound to new heights back in the early days, at the turn of the century. Alongside the consistency, Isis have always managed to maintain there delightful sludge roots and hardcore background, shown most fittingly in the . Though the sound has evolved along the same lines as many other bands - towards sounding like Neurosis - Isis have managed to do what countless other bands have failed disastrously at - keeping their identity intact whilst still being able to induce similar feelings that bands like Neurosis have classically provided for many years now. Aside from the obvious influence, I cannot help but relate some of the material back to bands like Tool, who're subjected to a lot of criticism from die-hard metal fans though, of course, there is a section that is in love with them. Isis, like Tool, construct unfamiliar and almost tribal sounding songs (which comes across in the subtleties of the record, not the most impacting elements) that disparage the normality of the scene, whilst welcoming experimentation with a passionate embrace. Although Tool have received a lot of criticism from sections of the metal public for being overly pretentious and downright dull, Isis have never adhered to these criticisms.Read more ›
