Le decapitazioni dei prigionieri. La pulizia etnico-religiosa nelle zone occupate dell'Iraq. La proclamazione di un Califfato. Queste sono le cose che i media hanno cominciato a raccontarci nell'estate 2014 sull'Isis, i pochi frammenti di un mosaico nuovo e terribile, a cui il mondo non era pronto. Queste milizie hanno conquistato un territorio più vasto del Texas nel cuore del Medio Oriente, hanno dissolto i confini dettati dal colonialismo occidentale un secolo fa, hanno costretto gli Usa a tornare a bombardare l'Iraq. Ma chi sono, da dove vengono, come hanno fatto a diventare così potenti, e fin dove possono arrivare?

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…

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.

Joby Warrick - Bandiere nere. La nascita dell'Isis

Quando, nel 1999, il Governo della Giordania concesse l'amnistia a un gruppo di prigionieri politici detenuti in un carcere di massima sicurezza in mezzo al deserto, non aveva la minima idea che tra di essi ci fosse anche Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, un terrorista capace di diventare in pochi anni l'architetto del movimento più pericoloso del Medio Oriente prima, e del mondo intero poi. "Bandiere nere" di Joby Warrick mostra come la determinazione di un solo uomo e gli errori strategici dei presidenti americani George Bush e Barack Obama abbiano permesso che le bandiere dell'ISIS si issassero sull'Iraq e la Siria, prima di spargere sangue in tutto il mondo. Sulla base di informazioni ad altri inaccessibili, ottenute sia da fonti giordane che della CIA, Warrick tesse una dettagliata cronaca - attimo dopo attimo, fatto dopo fatto - della nascita e crescita di un mostro che ha adepti in tutto il mondo, e che sta colpendo tanto l'Europa e gli Stati Uniti, quanto l'area mediorientale e oltre..
