Isis, one of the best underground, artful and doomy metal bands ever, were the type of band you had to experience in the live realm. Onstage is where the band came to life.
So it's no surprise that Isis are digitally releasing live recordings of some of their shows, many of which were recorded by their fans. Check out ARTISTdirect.com's exclusive video interview with the band, where hot topics such as how songs changed and morphed in the live setting and how they rearranged songs by extending parts that eventually lead into other songs, are discussed.
The band also opens up about the story behind "In Fiction," which was one of the first songs the band wrote after they were forced to take a break.
The band also speaks about their finale release,Wavering Radiant, as well as their personal discovery of Slayer –which happened when one of the members was a teen working as a dishwasher!
The band also talks about what's next... since they've broken up.
