Isis call it a day. by Jayson

Well, this is one of those things.

One one hand I completely respect their desire to quit before the music got bad and the concept that they had done everything they wanted to do as a unit, it still represents for me what is a ‘major bummer.’

Hearing Isis for the first time was one of those pivotal moments for me as a music fan. They opened up whole new worlds for me, any of the post-rock, post-metal, ambient instrumental stuff I love today I probably never would have heard of without first hearing Isis. Definitely one of the great formative bands for me.

So on the other hand I am sad to see them go. I have a genuine love for their music.

Here are two of what I consider their better songs, if you’re reading this and wondering what the big deal was.

Dang, that’s bunk.

The bunk is their last tour isn’t even stopping in the Midwest. Not even in Chicago.

I am happy I got to see them, though. Even though they aren’t in my specialized genre, they completely rule.
