As the Lizard King would say “This is the end, beautiful friend, This is the end, my only friend”. Isis will soon be no more, as the band have decided to end their career on a high note. And man what a career they have had, with over five solid studio albums, and countless tours around the world. Isis recently made one last stop in Vancouver on their Wavering Radiant tour. Isis played to an almost sold out audience at The Rickshaw theatre, and the bands performance was solid as usual. Heavy Street got the chance to talk to vocalist / guitarist Aaron Turner about music, movies, and meathead jocks showing up at Slayer shows:

When it comes to the new generation of hardcore bands, First Blood are on top of the pile. These vegan, straight edge thugs are presently putting the finishing touches on their new album. You can hear the new track “Enemy” off this soon to released record on their myspace page. This track just destroys the competition. If you’re into that ol’ tried n’ true Hatebreed, Merauder sound, then First Blood will be right up your alley.

I caught up with lead singer Carl  Schwartz after their crushing set opening for Earth Crisis at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver a few days ago. It could have happened under better circumstances, as some crackheads got into their van earlier that night, and took what they could find, but Carl handled it pretty well. We discussed the new album, touring, veganism, and some dietary advice as well. Check it out, and afterwards go to their myspace page to see if their coming to your town, as these guys completely annihilate live. http://www.myspace.com/firstblood
