Music Video: …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Isis Unveiled

04.08.09

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Song: Isis Unveiled
Artist: …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Album: Century of Self
Label: Justice Records
Notes: 1st single from LP
Analysis: I rarely listen to a lot of the music I listened to in high school, but I’m pretty proud to call Trail of Dead a personal find of mine, one that I discovered on my own without MTV (at the time still playing music) telling me what’s good. And while I never really dug too deep into the band’s catalogue, ‘Another Morning Stoner’ remains one of my favorite songs of the decade. ‘Isis Unveiled’ is a heavier, faster song  filled with some brutal guitars, but the same cosmic atmosphere layered underneath that makes this group special. The imagery in the video filtered over singer Conrad Keely’s face is that of skulls, swords and serpants, which are a natural fit for the heaviness of the song. It’s a headbanger… I know that most of the readers that come to The New Classics don’t show up for songs like these, but hopefully I can change that. Anyone looking to expand their minds & mp3 collections can feel free to call this group their own personal find. That’s what I’m here for.
