There are at least eight artists that have used the name Isis:

1. Isis was a Los Angeles, CA based band that started in Boston, MA in 1997. They borrowed from and helped to evolve a sound pioneered by the likes of Neurosis and Godflesh, creating heavy music consisting primarily of lengthy songs that focus on repetition and evolution of structure and texture. As such, their music encompasses a considerable range of genres. Some of these include sludge metal and post-metal; the band is considered a pioneer of the latter sub-genre. Read more on Last.fm

Hydra Head Records R.I.P 2 Thrash Hits

As we reported on Tuesday, Hydra Heads Records bossman Aaron Turner announced this week that the label was to effectively close, with the label to transform little more than an administrative arm for the label’s existing catalogue before the year is out.
