The Spawn of Sabbath: 10 Bands That Followed Black Sabbath’s Unholy Template

Black Sabbath

By Ryan Reed, ContributorBlack Sabbath's self-titled debut, 1970's Black Sabbath, set the unholy blueprint: Tony Iommi's blood-curling riffs, Ozzy Osbourne's demonic howl, and the versatile rhythms of bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward. Even still, few could… more »

eMusic Exclusive: Jodis, “Broken Ground”

Jodis

Jodis

By Andrew Parks, ContributorAnyone still mourning the loss of ISIS needs to pause for a second and consider just how prolific its former frontman (Aaron Turner) has been since the band's split a couple years back. Aside from the art projects Turner happily shares on his Feral Pig blog, and the growing roster of his vinyl-driven SIGE Records imprint, the singer/guitarist seems to be in a new band every other month.

By Andrew Parks, ContributorWhile Aaron Turner's spent most of the past year cranking out left field LPs on SIGE Records — a side label with his wife/Mamiffer bandmate, Faith Coloccia — the former Isis frontman gets back to his glass-guzzling roots on Split Cranium's debut album, a collaboration with Circle's Jussi Lehtisalo that's about as crusty as hardcore punk gets. And just in case you forgot how widescreen Turner's last full-time job was, the record's closing track ("Retrace the Circle") tortures your speakers for more than eight minutes, running the singer's melodies straight into an electrical fence repeatedly.

ISIS, Wavering Radiant

By Dan Epstein, ContributorFive full-length studio albums into a twelve-year career, Isis have pretty much found their niche, and that niche lies somewhere between Tool's angst-filled prog-isms, Mogwai's majestic art-rock instros and Sunn 0)))'s ambient metal drones. Wavering… more »
