Greetings from Musician Talk, hi!

I'm trying to expand my music playing and listening. This band changed the way I looked at music and I was told that the soft part is based off of Post Rock. I looked up a few Post-Rock/Metal bands (Sigur Ros, Dextro, Cult of Luna, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Vidavox) and I love em.

Now, because I don't wanna waste time sifting through all the crap can anyone help me out with finding anymore good bands?

how bout go listen to bands from the 60's and 70's


Was post rock big in that time? I thought there was a difference between Post-rock and Psychadelic

Isis is a pretty big post-metal band. Surprised nobody has mentioned them.

Red Sparowes is some of my favorite post rock.

Russian Circles is another.
It's not so much that the Schecter's neck is ''fat'', it's that the Ibanez neck is anorexic.

Because it's post-metal, not post-rock.


If post-metal counts, I'll add
  • Isis
  • Palms
  • Pelican

to my previous "must listen to" list.


EDIT:
Oh yeah, it's right there on the OP -- "Post-Rock/Metal bands". My bad for pretty much only reading the title.
