No. 17: Isis, ‘The Beginning and the End’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs
Isis' sophomore album, 'Oceanic' is widely considered as one of the most significant metal-based albums of the 2000s. The band made a formidable 180 with 'Oceanic,' evolving from a crushing metal act to a more progressive and melodic experiment.
'The Beginning and the End' starts off the album with a unique attraction, luring in listeners with it's bizarrely beautiful mix of floating aggression. Although the track sounds like a deep cut, it serves as a brilliant introduction to a truly unique accomplishment.
