The album I’ve decided to choose for the heavy and weird album of the week is the third album from ISIS which is called “Panopticon” – the reason I chose this album is because I believe this album is one of the first real classics of the modern era. In fact I think considering the rather uninspiring decade we just came out of it is no wonder that some of the best and most forward thinking music from 2000 to 2013 came from Metal bands, a genre that continues to thrive and evolve regardless of the demands of modern youth culture.
Being a well adjusted music fan in the last ten years has been challenging but if you’re committed to the cause you’ll dig deep into all areas of the music world to find something to move you. ISIS is one the bands that renewed my faith in music. Everything about ISIS is amazing. They really are one of a kind and I have to admit that after trying to become a post-rock fiend I found that I much preferred what ISIS did and I still believe they are a million times better than any post-rock band.
I could have picked any album from ISIS because they are all brilliant but I went with “Panopticon” because I’ve been listening to it quite a bit lately and it always changes my life when it is playing through my headphones.
This album puts a smile on my face and each day is made 100 per cent more awesome when I get to listen to ISIS on my stereo.
