ISIS (1997-2010). Aaron Turner (vocals, guitars), Randy Larson (guitars, replaced by Mike Gallagher), Jeff Caxide (bass), Aaron Harris (drums), Chris Mereshuk (keyboards/samples, replaced by Jay Randall, replaced by Cliff Meyer).
Isis are one of the new wave of innovative and groundbreaking metal bands that are revitalizing the current scene. The band was started in Boston in 1996 and pioneered a mixture of heavy dynamics and atmospheric riff-based, constantly evolving music that could almost be labeled post-metal. The Red Sea remains a high point in late-nineties metal.
