New Vinyl Record - Isis, Mosquito Control
Vinyl LP pressing. The Mosquito Control EP is the first studio release by American post-metal band Isis, originally released in 1998. All four songs are linked through consistent bouts of chaos and lyrics glued by the metaphor of using mosquitoes as a symbol for mankind, society and population control. Although it represents Isis' first studio release, it is actually their third recording as a group after two demo productions, and was the last recording containing early band members. Isis was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1997 but later based in Los Angeles. They borrowed from and helped to evolve the post-metal sound pioneered by bands such as Neurosis and Godflesh, characterized by lengthy songs focusing on repetition and evolution of structure.
