For Isis, Oceanic and Panopticon are both comletely fantastic - the new one is a big let-down IMHO.

Red Sparrowes are more mellow, but still very good. I second the "...Soundless Dawn" recommendation.

indeed, the fennesz remix and the mike patton remix are the highlights of that whole thing.

I wonder what I did with that CD, i only have 2 of the 4 parts on vinyl.

If you're going to buy any Jesu / Isis / Red Sparoes / Sunn O))) then I'd recommend gettting the Japanese versions of their albums from here - INOXIA Records

Most have bonus discs with them as well. Price is around $20 - $30 and it only took a week for stuff I ordered to arrive from Japan.

Look under Mail Order - English - Daymare Recordings.

Here's a selection....

Giving them a go for the new Jesu EP - bit more expensive but we'll see if its worth it....

I'd recommend the SUNN 0))) reissues - I can't wait for the second batch this month.....

i'm still in love with panopticon. its the perfect album; for me anyway. Less heavy than oceanic but the way all the guitars and stuff come together and the melodies are just... yummy.

i don't agree that the new one is a big let down though. it is mellower, but i still enjoy a lot of it.

i really like the mosquito control ep. its kind of doomier, but with a bit of pace about it and some gorgeous riffs and stuff. the songs do tend to meander a bit though. I don't think much of The Red Sea, i'd avoid that.
