Grimmrobe This is the spark that lit the entire metal world ablaze and introduced one of the greatest bands to ever grace the planet to an unsuspecting public.

Get swept the fuck away. Favorite track: Hive Destruction.

Alice M. I used to think obscure EPs from the beginning of a band's career were bound to be kinda disappointing. Gosh, that was dumb for sure.
Recognizable Isis style, but harsh – in a good way.

D.A.M. Glory is..

Relative to the ones who live in defeat

Pasquale Striano Rough and insane as every dark art should always be. Excellent, and in my opinion, never matched by Isis themselves afterwards. Not until Sumac.

Poison Eggs 06:42


Remastered 2018 reissue of the groundbreaking, debut 1998 EP

As ISIS’s first official release (originally on Escape Artist Records), Mosquito Control remains a testament to the band’s precocious nature with glimpses of their potential as a singular force. Even in this first peek into the oeuvre of the eclectic ensemble, ISIS established themselves as reflective and meticulous crafters, purposefully flowing each song into another and tying together each piece with their first overarching theme: mosquitoes. While the EP captures their penchant for long-form compositions and repetition, there is a desperate immediacy that grips the EP, offering some of the most abrasively affecting, raw, and urgent music of the band’s discography.
