Originally formed by Hydrahead Records owner Aaron Turner, Isis began life as a fairly straightforward sludge/stoner metal band. Their first two EPs "The Red Sea" and "Mosquito Control" presented a brutal and loud form of heavy metal which quickly gained them a following, making their debut album "Celestial" a hit in metal circles. The first signs of what they would eventually become emerged on the "SGNL>05" EP, where their intense guitar grooves began to additionally incorporate mellow, spacey segments.
2002's "Oceanic" would prove to be their breakthrough album, perfecting the band's combination of post-rock buildups and explosive, slow metal. Their evolution came into full circle with 2003's "Panopticon", which relied more on atmosphere and gradual progressions than musicianship and technicality…

‘Virus’ is the culmination of a musical thought experiment which started with the ‘Vector’ writing sessions in 2017 and holds intriguing potential for the band’s future, as vocalist Ross Jennings explains, “whilst ‘Virus’ can absolutely be enjoyed as a stand-alone work, it is thematically and conceptually linked with ‘Vector’, so our intention is to perform both albums back to back for a special performance someday”.

Lead guitarist Esa Holopainen and drummer Jan Rechberger formed the band Amorphis in Finland in 1990. To complete their lineup they recruited vocalist/guitarist Tomi Koivusaari and bassist Olli-Pekka Laine. They released a demo in 1991 called Disment of Soul. The demo was so successful in getting attention for the group that they acquired a record deal and released an EP the same year. They next released their first full-length album, The Karelian Isthmus, in 1992. The following year, their early demo recording session was released as Privilege of Evil…

If the glacial dynamics of previous metal and hardcore abstractions Celestial and Oceanic didn't prove that Isis was a heavy band in every sense, then Panopticon should do the trick. The title comes from 18th century philosopher Jeremy Bentham's prison design, which was later referenced by Michael Foucault in the 20th century. The idea is that a centrally placed guard or watcher can keep track of a large number of prisoners, and it excited Bentham and concerned Foucault. Heavy stuff for a metal band, huh? Both are quoted in the liner notes, bookended by aerial industrial photos laying out society's open sprawl. It fits perfectly with the epic music on the disc itself, which is as angular as post-rock forefathers Slint and as cosmically expansive as Neurosis, yet closer to the intensity of hardcore than either of them…

"I know where I'm headed, but I don't know what it is," says Devin Townsend in the initial episode of the seven-part documentary that prefaced the release of Empath, his first solo album since dissolving the Devin Townsend Project in 2017. For nearly 30 years, Townsend has erased artificial boundaries between genres. He has continually juxtaposed tracks ranging from extreme metal to progressive rock, classical, new age, ambient music, and even Americana on the same album…

Cellar Darling are storytellers who want to carry the listener away into a world of music. The goal is to unleash feelings and experiences by telling stories and drawing symbols, in the way mankind has done since the dawn of it's existence: through legends, folk tales, theatre, drama, spirituality - and through songs. Cellar Darling formed in the summer of 2016 out of the split of Switzerland's most successful metal act to date, the chart-topping Eluveitie. After the split with their former band in June 2016, the trio knew that their musical journey was far from over and instantly began working on their own songs. What quickly developed was a unique and fresh combination of grand and heavy riffs, powerful drumming and a unique voice, with the signature folky, earthy tones of the hurdy gurdy, confidently fusing heavy alternative and progressive rock with strong folk influences and poetic lyrical tales, creating what you may very well call a New Wave Of Folk Rock.

There's been a rise, both abundant and significant, of progressive rock and metal from Poland in the last decade. Notable bands include the mighty Riverside and it's spin off Lunatic Soul, but also Satellite, Division by Zero, Strawberry Fields, and Tesserakt to name a few more. Now welcome newcomers Xanadu and their debut album, The Last Sunrise on ProgRock Records. Without seeking comparisons, you can't help but notice the influences of Xanadu, from Pink Floyd to their comrades, Riverside. The music of The Last Sunrise, however, is notably melancholy, sometimes dark. Often heavy riffage and arrangements are colored throughout by wistful, ethereal, and sometimes spooky synth layers…

The twelfth show of the Nighttime Stories tour took place at the Grog Shop, a venue that has played host to many, many memorable Pelican shows over our nearly 20 year tenure. This night was no exception, as we were joined by our great friends Bloodiest and Six Kills Nine. Moreover, this leg of the tour - four shows in the Midwest over the course of a long weekend - kicked off with Trevor crushing a fingertip on his left hand while loading amps into the practice room two days before hitting the road. For this jaunt we enlisted the talents of our longtime friend and erstwhile live sound collaborator Matt Hannigan, who has a habit of recording multitrack audio of the shows he mixes. On listening back to the recordings, we were particularly into this one: it seems to really capture the excitement and energy of the night (and tour, overall).
