Aaron Harris of Isis on the Internet Guessing Game Over ‘Wavering Radiant’
Have you been listening to a streaming or plucked-from-the web version of the new Isis record? Well, Adam Jones (the guitar master blaster from Tool) does some guest work on the record. If you have been arguing on message boards and fighting with friends over what guitar effect or ambient sound is his contribution you’re probably wrong.
Laughing over what online guesses and arguments he’s read, drummer Aaron Harris of Isis told Noisecreep, “There’s some pretty funny speculation of where he contributed. I read some stuff online where people are trying to pick where it is and they are completely off, it’s really funny. I read thing like, ‘Oh I bet that guitar pick slide in the beginning of that one song, that’s totally Adam Jones’. I don’t know how you can pick out a pick slide as somebody’s signature sound.”
Aaron continued to explain the exact contribution Adam Jones did on ‘Waving radiant, “He just did some guitar and its not gonna be that recognizable, its not your typical guitar sounds. I think he used an ebo and effects. But it still has that signature Adam Jones sound to it.”
Now on what tracks does Adam Jones play what Aaron describes as “a whole fading frog sound”? The opening song ‘Hall of the Dead’ and the instrumental title track ‘Waving Radiant’.
‘Waving Radiant’ comes out May 5 on Ipecac Recordings. Whatever you think the record sounds like, it’s better than that.
