Isis plays metal. But it's no stretch to consider the group alongside devotees to drone, sludge, noise, or blip - all those artistic sublevels spill out on the papery fringe, anyway. And that's why Oceanic: Remixes/Reinterpretations is such a powerful project. The collaborators here are continuing Oceanic's restless evolutionary cycle, so their results are free to be loud, soft, or somewhere in the foggy between. Of the 13 tracks featured on this two-disc set, 12 originally appeared on a series of 12" EPs; disc two's second version of Tim Hecker's "Carry" interpretation is exclusive. Hecker's "Carry [First Version]" elongates the seesaw notes in Isis' original, stretching them with ropes of warping electric guitar and letting a soft ambient texture sift in toward the end…

Celestial is Isis' first full-length after two EPs, The Red Sea and Mosquito Control, and it shows their already fairly mature sludgecore style in full swing. Those earlier EPs proved that they already knew how to rock hard, but Celestial, for the first time, also shows off the band's feel for dynamics and for less-aggressive, quieter ways of getting their point across (including a more effective and advanced use of electronic/noise elements). There has always been as much despair as anger in frontman Aaron Turner's sandpaper screams, and listening to the clean-toned guitar intro on the mostly instrumental "C.F.T. (New Circuitry and Continued Evolution)," it's clear that this much is also true about the band's music in general…

Isis pushed the envelope so far on 2002's Oceanic and 2004's gloriously pretentious concept album Panopticon that they spawned countless imitators, which is the greatest form of flattery in some quarters. In the Absence of Truth is the fourth full-length from Isis. This set is not a brave leap forward - most of us haven't caught up with the last one, and Oceanic spawned an even more experimental set of remixes in 2005 - but a further look up the holy mountain to a new plateau, a hike to sacred ground…

In a journey like never before, Stacey joins Shireen, a 23 year-old Yazidi woman who was held as a sex slave for over two years by Isis. Shireen managed to escape while enslaved in Mosul, but many Yazidi women like her haven’t, and remain in captivity. Shireen is going in search of justice - and she's taking Stacey with her. Shireen travels with Stacey back to Mosul, the self-declared capital of Isis in Iraq, to revisit the places where she was held captive.

Comprendere il fenomeno dell'Isis e capire quanto sia pericoloso per l'Italia e per l'Occidente non è mai stato facile. Non lo era già nel 2014 quando, con un'avanzata travolgente in Iraq e in Siria, sconvolgeva il mondo, apparendo come un mostro spaventoso. Non lo è nemmeno oggi dopo la caduta di Raqqa - la capitale dello Stato islamico - e delle altre rocca-forti, avvenuta a fine 2017. Come se quel mostro spaventoso fosse stato un grande bluff. Studioso di terrorismo alla LUISS di Roma e al MIT di Boston, Alessandro Orsini analizza rigorosamente la situazione attuale, aiutandoci a sfatare l'immagine distorta dell'Isis che spesso ci hanno offerto i media, ora ingigantendone la potenza ora banalizzandone i reali moventi e obiettivi, la preparazione bellica e gli strumenti militari a disposizione..
