Isis: Celestial

This may be the bones that later work would add flesh and blood to, but Isis's 2000 debut -- reissued now on Robotic Empire -- has its own harrowing pulse. If it's more direct than future albums, it's still no less vital of a sound.

Even though Isis's musical progression is cautious at best, the band is still miles ahead of its peers.
