Double vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the Post-Metal band's 2000 debut. Celestial highlights the band's roots in Metal and Hardcore while displaying the Post-Rock and Ambient experimentation for which they became best known.. with chugging Sludge, expansive Doom, droning Metal and a nuanced use of keys, samples and noise, the album shifts between moments of complete devastation and graceful passages of sheer beauty. Isis came into their own with Celestial, mastering the flow of sonic dynamics and smoothly bringing sparse elements into an otherwise oppressively heavy sound. For this special reissue, Aaron Turner's artwork has been fully re-imagined from the original elements, and the two discs are housed in a gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves containing flood-black interior printing.
