I still love Porcupine Tree's older albums to death.

And I think Rusty Cooley is the reason why there is still genocide in this world.

Should be I listening to this band? Now that I've somewhat contextualized a part of my musical taste.


Wat. Mega speed has nothing to do with STS. They are technical though all of their songs contain uber-awesome melodies.

Scale The Summit are definitely one of the most tasteful instrumental bands I've heard outside of post-rock.

Even so, it may still be too "shreddy" for you? It's slow enough where there are actual melodies, but even so...

I love the tapping riff in The Great Plains.

Does anyone have this hoodie by them?

I think it's pretty cool, but I don't want to buy it, and it like shrink on me, or be too thin.

I listen to John McLaughlin 24/7 so I can handle a lil' bit o speed here n there. Since the term post-rock was used, is this band anything like Tortoise? (In particular, the way they sound on the album "Standards").

I don't know Tortoise at all, so I can't really answer that.

But I can say that they do have the occasional "post-rock-ish" moments, like the aforementioned tapping riff in "The Great Plains" (it's not as shreddy as it sounds, it's actually a clean chord progression they're tapping out).

I have the tab book, and there's rarely anything faster than an eighth note in it. They seem to rely a lot on chordal arpeggios and what I call "super-slowed-down shred licks". Sometimes, they look more like exercises than songs. But they flow really well and sound pretty kickass.

This. Most of their songs have like 1 3 5 (fretwise thingy.) like this:
---------5
-----3----
--1-------

An by most of their songs i mean all. Monument is also cool. Impossible to dislike "Crossing The Ocean".

They are such an incredible band. ^ You're right too, they use add9 chords in every single song on their new album.

I feel as if it is a little heavier but to answer your question yes you will enjoy.

I showed STS to a friend (he now loves them) but he said they should write the music for Final Fantasy. I gotta ay that would be pretty epic.

Kinda, yeah. Both have pretty similar arpeggio intros. And both songs utilize harmonized octave riffs at some point.

is it harmony? or more like counterpoint?

oh well; i havent listened to them for a while, but when i first discovered them, I was all about some Age of the Tide.

and yes, add9 chords seem to be loved in that band. not a bad thing though!
