ISIS reissue their landmark full-length debut, Celestial, on July 8 via Ipecac Recordings. Originally release in 2000.
The hard to find and long out-of-print release will be reissued with new artwork from Aaron Turner as well as the audio having been recently remastered by James Plotkin
Well the good news is that it sounds amazing. It's still huge and full of bombast, while being meticulously detailed in the process. It just sounds clearer now. This is by no means a cynical release; time and pride have both been lovingly poured into this thing that much is evident. Both band and label are known for quality, and quality ye shall receive. Hopefully that means that a whole new wave of people can have the opportunity to explore this post-metal masterpiece for the first time. It's as fresh and vibrant now as it was 13 years ago, maybe even more so given its sexy makeover.
Go back and relive why you loved
Isis in the first place. This is the absolute perfect way to rekindle a noisy love affair all over again. I suggest that you invest.
