Isis announce fifth album

By | Published on Friday 23 January 2009

Epic metallers Isis have announced details of their fifth album, ‘Wavering Radiant’. It will be released later this year via Ipecac. Lovers of digital music will have to wait until 5 May, but vinyl fans will be able to get their hands on it from 21 Apr. In the US, anyway. I would like it right now, please.

Speaking about the album, frontman Aaron Turner told Billboard: “[This album is] perhaps a little more orchestral in feel. There’s more layers going on and more interplay between the instruments, rather than layering of parts. This is a better sonic representation of what the band actually sounds like. In the past I think some of the recordings were a little too clean in their final form. There was something about the energy that seemed to be lacking. It seems to feel more like us than anything else has”.
