High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Oceanic is the second
full-length album by American post-metal band Isis, released on
September 16, 2002 by Ipecac Recordings. On July 23, 2006, Isis
performed Oceanic in its entirety at KOKO, Camden Town, London as
part of the All Tomorrow's Parties curated Don't Look Back series.
The album reintroduces the water and female themes of past releases
the Red Sea and Celestial through a story: A man at the brink of
emotional numbness finds a female counterpart who completes him
("The Beginning and the End"). However, he soon finds that she has
had a long-term incestuous relationship ("False Light," "Weight")
with her brother ("Hym," "The Other"). This drives him to lose all
hope, and he commits suicide through drowning ("from sinking sands,
he stepped into light's embrace").
