The Mosquito Control EP is the first studio release by American post-metal band Isis, released in 1998 by Escape Artist. The piece runs fluently through all 29 minutes, and all four songs are linked through consistent bouts of chaos and lyrics glued by the metaphor of using mosquitoes as a symbol for mankind, society and population control. The Mosquito Control EP introduces Isis's first major theme, the mosquito. The reissue of this EP features cover art depicting control towers.

You just have to love that ISIS snare drum sound. Favorite track: Poison Eggs. Deen Llüks DAG. Deen Llüks DAG Still the best songs of ISIS, Raw and Original. Dustfan The Mosquito Control and The Red Sea EPs were the first studio releases by ISIS and showcase them in their infancy before they became known as one of the creators of the post-metal genre.

The conceptual feel of this EP is also highlighted by the lyrics, which use mosquitoinsect references as a metaphor for a failed relationship. Hive Destruction showcases the band's riff-writing abilities at their best and is arguably the highlight here, but the whole EP is solid and should please anyone into this band. You can write one.

Now, anyone expecting to find what Isis is doing nowadays on this album is going to be in for a brutal surprise. This album came out when Isis was a lot angrier and drawing a large degree of influence from Neurosis and Godflesh. Translation, it's heavy as all get out. Album Name Mosquito Control. Type EP.
