Me and some friends want to start up a Post-Rock band but we haven't a clue how to write a Post-Rock song. What type of things are typically used in Post-Rock writing? It sounds kind of like the Ionian Mode is used quite a bit but other than that I can't tell.

You'll probably get a better response in the post rock thread in the Alternative and Indie forum. As for writing post rock, bands usually use quite a bit of delay and reverb. A lot of songs also tend to start off soft and slow and build up to a crescendo. That's all I can really think of right now. Good Luck
