Isole is an epic doom metal band from Sweden that is currently signed to a german record label Cyclone Empire.


Formed in 1990 under the name Forlorn, the band released several demos before changing their name to "Isole" in 2003 in order to avoid confusion with other bands named Forlorn.[1] In 2005, Isole released their debut album, Forevermore through I Hate Records. In 2006, they also released The Beyond and 'Throne of Void through I Hate Records. In 2008, Isole's third full-length studio album, 'Bliss of Solitude, was released through a different label, Napalm Records. Their 2009 album Silent Ruins was also released through Napalm Records, which they are signed with.[1] Silent Ruins is a concept album about a man who wakes up without any memory of his life in a post-apocalyptic world; he slowly gains memories about himself but fears that this will lead to a devastating conclusion for him. Crister Olsson stated in an interview that the story of Silent Ruins will be continued on a future album, possibly two future albums, one of which might not be Isole's next studio album.[2] In October 2011, the band's latest album, Born from Shadows, was released. In late 2013, Isole started the production of their future album. On May 28 of 2014, the band split with their record label, Napalm Records.[3]
