Isthmus biography
US outfit ISTHMUS was formed in 2005 by Noel Mueller (guitars, vocals) and Chris May (drums). The band took it's good time to shape up though, but eventually a third member, Matt Hogans (guitars), hooked up with the band in 2007. So far the bass guitar hasn't been filled in by anyone on a permanent basis; but in 2008 they had the good fortune to have the services of Joe Kienle to fill that slot.

2008 was the year when they decided to record their debut album. They hit the studio in the spring, with the self-released production Land Bridge emerging as the result; an album which received positive reviews all around when issued.

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Impressive debut album by this US act.

With the 7 guitar-dominated and 3 more experimental tracks on this CD, the band presents itself as an innovative addition to the rooster of up and coming metal bands.

Quirky and constantly changing riff patterns are mixed with more mellow-sounding passages with distorted and gritty yet melodic and calm guitar licks. No soloing at all in any manner we're used to; melodic overlays of a more experimental nature is a constant feature though; often placed a bit back in the mix.

The vocal passages are dampened as well; with a whispered form of black metal style croaking as the most common feature but with regular vocals used at times too.

Three mostly non-melodic soundscapes are spread out on this production too; featuring noises, sounds and space-tinged atmospheres seemingly of electronic origin.

Intriguing and compelling stuff - rather bleak and often heavy and aggressive - and well worth checking out for those into the more inventive side of metal.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
