Swedish doom metal outfit Isole provide a grandiose listening experience with their latest release BLISS OF SOLITUDE. This seven-track endeavor is a weighty affair, revealing what the collaboration of Crowbar and Opeth would sound like on cuts like the title track. Atmospheric and deliberate yet crushingly heavy on cuts like "Shadowstone", Isole remains intensely focused on providing a tremendous soundscape for floating notes and well-measured rhythms to come to fruition and fully bloom, an act that reaps an engaging array of moody yet surprisingly not too melancholy tracks whose mild pace and sheer heft will leave any fan of the doom genre pining for more.
