Since threads about post metal bands are rarely used and/or bumped, I just figured I would make a thread for the whole genre.

So, have at it.

Neurosis
Pelican
ISIS
Rosetta
Red Sparowes
Mouth of the Architect
Made Out of Babies (I see them as post metal, at least)
Battle of Mice

etc.


Share the love.

Would Sunn O))) go here? I've heard some of them and loved it but not a whole lot. Haven't really ventured into the post/experimental sub-genres too far.

Julie Christmas is amazing.

Have you heard Made Out of Babies? She does their vocals, as well.

"The Ruiner" is one of the greatest albums of the year.

Yeah, they would.


ALSO, Intronaut. EXTREMELY underrated band. "Null" and "Void" are masterpieces.


I need to hear their new album.....¬_¬

Solstafir, Caina, Fen, and Solefald are all pretty cool post-black metal.

And of course, Agalloch must be mentioned here.

this wasn't started because of my mention in the Opeth thread about Isis was it?

Anyways, I love Isis, and Pelican does great work as well, but I have yet to get into Cult Of Luna. All I know about them is that they did a tour with Agalloch. Any album recs per say?

And I keep hearing mixed feelings about Jesu...

No, I started it because threads about post metal bands are so widely ignored, and threads about entire genres usually get a bit more feeback, which is good on many levels.

Like, two days ago, I bumped a thread about Mouth of the Architect, and no one posted.


Now I post a thread about the genre in general, and it's getting decent posts.

Plus, I just love the genre.

As far as post metal goes, I have the Isis discography, Agalloch discography and Somewhere Along the Highway by Cult of Luna. The latter being an absolute masterpiece, I actually prefer it to anything by Isis. It has a really awesome sound, as they recorded the basic tracks in an octagonal wooden cabin.

Post metal is a genre I still haven't properly explored, I definitely need to give the albums I have more listens and get some new ones too.

Also I can't believe I haven't mentioned Sculptured and the title has the word "experimental"... They are incredible.

GASP! how evil, kvlt, and totally awesome....must listen now!

Ah, I am new to post metal as well, and Isis takes the cake for me so far. It's like Tool and Pelican got welded together and the result was actually beautiful. As they say, the whole is better than the sum of its parts.

And Calm, I was just about to mention Sculptured, honest I was. Apollo Ends is a great album for those who like psuedo melo-death with horn sections and great atmosphere.

On the downside, Apollo Ends had some meh vocals by most people's standards, but they certainly got the job done. The drumming is decent, nothing sporadic like on Embodiment, but nothing that certainly jumps out and grabs you. But Anderson doesn't write riffs, he writes songs. And dammit, I finally know which solos are his in Agalloch. That is, all the really good ones.

^IMO, if you're going to start somewhere, start with either Neurosis, ISIS or Pelican.

Albums:

"Through Silver in Blood"- Neurosis

"Panopticon"/"Oceanic"- ISIS (Your choice)

"Australasia"- Pelican

Really? I dig the vocals on Apollo Ends. They're so catchy. The cleans and growls alike. They're good on TSotLiA too. The newer singer on Embodiment isn't as great though. He gets the stuff done.

Anderson's writing is awesome.

I'd have to say ,all though it was more of a prototype form of the post/experimental stuff were hearing from today. Neurosis's"Souls At Zero" is an absolute masterpiece. Seeing their development from a simple(though ****ing deadly) hardcore outfit into what they've been today is amazing.I also love bands like Jesu,Isis,The Angelic Process and post rock is great as well.Glad to see a thread about it hear as it gets shunned in a lot of metal communities.

Eh I find him to be flat sometimes and just not as good of a singer. The other guys vocal melodies are better too, even though they were both probably arranged by Anderson...

www.myspace.com/matrixmetal for anyone interested in checking these guys out. Which should be everyone.

I shoegaze.

Granted, I have very limited knowledge on the genre, but I love anything that has shoegaze influence.

MBV, Sigur Ros, Silversun Pickups, etc.

I'll have to check out the others you mentioned.

I always thought BTBAM had a bit more post-rock influences than hardcore ones.

Anyways, eeerrr, post-metal, would Agalloch count? "Limbs" reminds me of 65daysofstatic a lot.

BTBAM, IMO, have no real post-rock influence, IMO. At all.

They have a very melodic, textured style, but it's still completely different from post-rock. Just hope starsnostars doesn't see that. ( stars. )

And, +1 to "Limbs". It does have a 65dos feel, in a way.

I listened to most Cult of Luna's "Salvation" last night.

Very, very good stuff. I wasn't in the best listening mood, but I loved what I heard.

I'll have to listen to more later, to get an even better feel for it.
