You probably already knew this, because we told you about it last month.
But Isis plan to reissue a remastered version of Oceanic, the band’s 2002 album, on November 4 on Ipecac Recordings.
“With the Oceanic remaster I feel we’ve saved the best for last,” explained drummer Aaron Harris, a stand-up dude.
“The clarity that’s been revealed in these songs was surprising even to me. I’ve heard these songs probably thousands of times. When I listened to the remastered version of Weight it was like I was back in the studio recording the song,” he adds. “I also noticed a lot of new detail in Jeff’s bass guitar, and energy in the guitars. I know Oceanic is a favorite among fans, and I think this remaster will bring a new appreciation even to those who have heard it many times.”
What follows is the remastered version of “The Beginning and the End.”
It sounds different to these ears. But it’s also been years since I listened to Oceanic.
