When did my blog become a fucking Monument to the dead. First Frazetta. Then Dio. Now i find out the band ISIS are calling it quits. Read ISIS statement Here. I came really close to giving up on Metal at one point. Bands like Neurosis, ISIS, and Earth renewed my faith in not only heavy music, but all music. These bands also opened me up to many other bands i wasn't familiar with. So ISIS call it quits. Godsmack hit number one on Billboard.
