You may recognize the name Jeff Caxide as a guilty party in one of the most influential bands of the early 2000s, Isis. With that stellar and much revered project behind him, Caxide has entered into a new venture with Crone and a new album Endless Midnight due on July 19th via Translation Loss. The new LP explores some of the ambient textures that Isis touched upon, yet goes further down the rabbit hole.

Dont think Jeff can escape his past that easily though. His former Isis cohorts Aaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer lend guest appearances on the record along with John LaMacchia (Candiria) while Aaron Turner joins Mamiffer bandmate Faith Coloccia on artwork detail. Check out the Endless Midnight art and a stream of "The Silver Hammer", the third track from the James Plotkin produced LP, below.

Meanwhile, Isis has unleashed the floodgate on older live material, releasing five live LPs via their website. Tracklistings and album details are also below...

"one of the most influential bands of the 2000s"

Serious? Maybe in the niche metal/prog scene, but I don't think their legacy has a widespread impact on music.

Yea, I was coming here to make the same comment. I like Isis well enough, but they're not that big a deal.

Isis probably broke up so that in 5 to 10 years, they can headline ATP and FYF Fests.

I think that in between Isis, their side projects, their related record labels (Hydra Head), and the number of bands that followed in their footsteps, I would say that they made a pretty profound impact.

But hey, thats my view.

Thanks for reading!

Isis broke up?
I was too busy jamming on that new Kanye joint. Kanye is brilliant, man.

Isis doesn't run Hydra Head.

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 10:55 AM

^ Who founded Hydra Head? Aaron Turner.

Please keep quiet. You are embarassing yourself.

Isis put all their final albums out on Ipecac. Not Hydra Head. You need to stop embarrassing *yourself.*

"Isis doesn't run Hydra Head"

No but they probably got crabs from a chicken head

Jeff, Aaron Harris, and Cliff are also working on new music together. Can't wait for it.

See, as not a huge metal fan, I don't know shit about what you guys are talking about. Isis is an ok band. No one cares really.

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 1:11 PM

11:38 Regardless of where they put out their albums, 10:55 is right. Aaron Turner from Isis founded Hydra Head. I think thats the point.

Isis was a good band but not great or influential

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 2:00 PM

Isis is fucking brilliant and is way better than any of the shit you listen to

Some people should stop wasting their time with posting nonsense. Thanks for the post, sounds good :)

How dare BrooklynVegan let that be published? Everyone knows that honor goes to LCD Soundsystem.

What is Isis? dubstep?

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 5:01 PM

Nevermind... not dubstep! I just listened to them... they're so awesome! They remind me of a more mainstream Radiohead but with real instruments... That drummer is redonkulous!

The record was also mixed by Aaron Harris of ISIS

John LaMacchia got the tasty riffs

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 7:34 PM

Aaron Turner's drum swells are beautiful, and Aaron Harris did a great job on the cover work

EMMURE BEST BAND EVAR!!! I SLAM DANCE TO THA WIGGER SLAM!! HAVING A SONG CALLED SOLAR FLARE HOMICIDE TOTALLY MAKES SENSE BECAUSE THE SUN MIGHT MURDER YOU!!!! BUT ITZ NOT MURDER IF ITZ DA SUN? WUT PLAYA YOU TRIPPIN!

"Isis" spelled backwards is "Sisi", or transliterated to "Sissy".
Coincidence? I think not.

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 8:57 PM

Isis is good, not great. I'd take Harvey Milk over Isis any day.

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 9:10 PM

Holy crap with all the haters!!! =o
Mr Caxide is one of my favourite bassists of all time and probably the biggest influence on my bass playing in the last ten years even though I already played largely in that sort of fashion.
Isis influenced modern rock and metal WAY more than anyone probably realizes!
Peace to all you motherfuckers! :D

8:21 - You don't know the one Aaron from the other.
