Boomkat Product Review:
ISIS' third-full-length album, "Panopticon", one of the most sought-after post metal records of the 2000s - now available again.
"'Panopticon' is considered as one of the greatest albums in the field of post-metal, post-rock's much heavier and riffier cousin. With frontman and guitarist Aaron Turner at the helm, ISIS broke further and further away from the sludge metal of earlier releases into much more atmospheric and dreamy territories, featuring textures lent from shoegaze, dream pop, and prog. Thematically, 'Panopticon' concerns surveillance and the government's role in implenting such technologies. Tool bassist Adam Jones guests."
