The only flaws I can think of are the lack of the sludge element that was prominent before, and really added a certain dynamic to the music, and the other being the keyboards use of semi cheesy leads. It is pretty much an ambient track that has some sort moans from some ghastly being in the background. They arranged the track with some refreshing organs. These journeys into melody are so successful vocal harmonies, no less that you wonder why Turner still bothers with the pseudo- death metal vocals at all. The music flows fluently from the start to the very end which is both great and a bit worrying considering the lack of any real stand-out moments. The screeching of the guitar is also an interesting contrast.

It seems that genre’s pioneers found their product to be half-dead and gone seeking for inspiration somewhere else. Also, the bass is a very important part of Isis’ sound, contributing a lot to the heavy and thick sound that the band creates. It has to be because they are better than the norm. This page was last edited on 21 Aprilat Sometimes they get a dreamy psychedelic mood going that reminds me of the late 80’s shoegazers.
Also, as I mentioned earlier, ‘Threshold of Transformation’ has waverign Tool sound to it with the radianr, complex bass line. Isis – Wavering Radiant CD. The last time radiang happened waswhen they transformed from brutal sludge metal to something altogether more delicate. It is only then that you find out that only a specific portion of the band’s discography is actually worth checking out. Instead it features more of a soundscape feel than wall of sound. Hand Of The Host The lighter, more post-rock oriented moments of ‘Wavering Radiant’ turn out incredibly; mixed generously with psychedelic effects and experimentation with noise effects.
Turner himself had this to say of the album, fully cognizant that it would be the band’s last: Each track has plenty of room to develop because, with the exception of one short track that serves as a bridge, tracks stay in the range of 6 to 11 minutes each. So my appreciation is usually diminished by a couple of weaker tracks.

ISIS Wavering Radiant reviews
The music is well- played, but moreso in the great choice of timbres as opposed to any flamboyant technical playing, of which there is none here. There are some added organ I think? Other sites in the MAC network: Good enough to warrant a 4 star rating this time. There are still some shrewd instrumental sections but some of the riffs and vocals don’t engage the entrancing vibe that music like this needs.
Except for the Japanese release, this is the last track on the album, and possibly, ending with a ‘Tool-like’ track, maybe that is why the comparison is made, but one track doesn’t make an album, and the track is still good anyway, because in the last half, it veers away from that sound to a heavier and brighter guitar solo.
