The music of the band ISIS is a suitable metaphor for their thirteen-year career: patient, meticulous, fraught with tension and gradually building towards an apex of seismic proportions. From the hypnotically bludgeoning down-tuned riffs of their early years to the gracefully sprawling passages on their pivotal sophomore album ‘Oceanic’ and continuing through the intricate rhythmic textures and increased melody of 2006’s ‘In The Absence Of Truth’, ISIS have successfully navigated the process of growing and evolving without disavowing their initial vision. ‘Live VII’ is the seventh in their post break-up series of live albums and their first to be released by Ipecac. The seminal show was recorded at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne, Australia on February 25, 2010 as part of the Soundwave Festival’s Sidewave shows.
