As of the last few months, this has hands down been my favorite genre of metal. Some combination of post-rock and black metal...not sure if Post-Black metal is the best way to phrase it, but all the bands I'm thinking of have some serious traits in common. Bands like:

Agalloch
Alcest
Amesoeurs
Clad In Darkness
Drudkh
Falls Of Rauros
Fen
Lantlos
Wolves In The Throne Room

Figured this would be a good place to discuss bands, recommend bands, talk about upcoming releases or your favorite releases etc... or this could serve for people like me who are craving anything in this style of music.

Enjoy.

So I just woke up sitting in my desk chair, with my bong on the desk in a bunch of little pieces and my hand super glued to my penis. Speculations as to what the hell just happened and how to unglue my hand from my member would be appreciated.

Agalloch ive id say were more NeoFolk metal, but I suppose I can hear a post rock influence

Drudkh I'd say just atmospheric black metal

Fen, Ive never understood the post tag with the,

Wittr I again consider atmospheric black metal.

Id personally add Les Discrets

But really, I think the BM thread + individual band threads work fine as they are.

Immortal would have to be my favorite black metal band followed by Dissection and Emperor. Some good lesser known bands I like would be Craft, (old)dodheimsgard and Tsjuder. I'm more into the cold sounding music although the "epic" type is good as well. Burzums new album was great in my opinion as well.

The only band I can think of that fits this thread is Pyramids, but they're more of an Alcest-y shoegaze/black metal variant.

REALLY hazy, distorted, lush, terrifying atmospheres.

"Igloo" always seems to give me chills (song's not on the Myspace, just the album).

Alcest and Wolves In The Throne Room have both got to be my two favourite metal bands on the entire metal scene at the minute.
although i wouldn't really call WITTR post black.

Yeah, I'd call WITTR Atmospheric Black, but that's just me.

Altar of Plagues are pretty damn awesome.
The lives of thousands in my hands
I’ve come to take back what’s rightfully mine and now you’re damned
The lights grow dark in their homes
But our road is lit by fire from the sky
So we push forward

Cascadian black metal? You know, I'm all for sub-divisions in genres, like brutal death metal, raw black metal, melodic death, etc. But seriously what the fuk man.

Let's just leave this to the black metal thread...
I can take a road that'll see me through.

I see some of you are getting very upset about this.

My sincerest apologies for cluttering your internet with such a ridiculous thread.
#20
Oh come on, we're just fucking around. We love you.


But yeah, take this to the BM thread, it's getting cold in there.

Atmospheric Black to me too.

Bored me to tears live though.

And those tears soon evaporated due to the furnace like temperatures in that building

I'm a huge post black fan. We generally discuss it in bm thread.

Those new to it should check out negura bunget OM record.

Also falls of rauros isn't post black. Great stuff though

Moar like "Post-Heterosexuality Metal Thread".
Quote by ChemicalFire
The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Heterosexuality metal sounds fun

An Ambient thread would be cool so there can be a focused conversation on Burzums prison works, Xasthur and Leviathan.

I just had an image of you standing on a mountain, stone tablet in hand, as the BM thread shouted down to you, "Thou shalt worship no other God but me."
