Help me with melacholic post-metal, that wander through Katatonia and doom realm, instrumental is better, can be post-bm, without too much shoegaze on it. Thx.


Maybe check out the Russian band The Morningside. First two albums are doomy post-metal. The third one is more post-bm; Katatonia is a reference they wear on their sleeve.

a more general rec would be to browse through the SLOWBURN catalogue: bands like Osoka, Fading Waves and others might do the trick.

I like Whales and Aurora from slow burn, also very much enjoy The Morningside, and Watered. Looking for good instrumental stuff. Anyone have candidates for the year?

I find the debut superior to all 3, with the secong being the least interesting.

It's a shame they are instrumental because they have something really cool going on but it's clearly missing vocals.

Amazing mix of dark jazz and post-rock, a recommended listen:



And this hardcore/post-rock band too, songs are short but good:

A couple of good things from Belgium

Mother, Sludgy Post-Metal



Eleanora, more toward hardcore/screamo

I remember listening this one, almost gave up after half the first track but thankfully the tempo went up, Losing Her and Alcoholism are the fastest and most interesting ones. Their other albums also have some really nice songs.

Some post-rock from this year:

Haven't had time to check out all of these yet, but Lowering sounds really cool. That vibe is pretty much up my alley.

I can recommend EndName, particularly their more recent albums Triatom and Eva, which take a more post-metal approach.


Pyramids have not been referenced in this thread, to me they're one of the weirdest (but quite pleasant) offerings in the genre.

Miscellen's new album, offered for free, is some very fine, dynamic, emotional slighty electro post-rock I have to mention here. It has a vintage 90ies flair that I can't really connect to any band in particular, maybe The God Machine would be a good point of comparison; a bit of Pitchshifter for the dark brooding touch and Prong too for the punch.... It's worth a try certainly, and a few bucks too.

Nice blackened, hardcoreish post-metal, they released a new album this month, from the little I listened I think it's even better than Reprieve;


Impressive, experimental post-rock full of new ideas, kinda neoclassical, almost jazzy sometimes. Those who like Lowering may enjoy this one;


One of my fav albums released in these last years. Perfect combination of doom, post-metal and shoegaze. Ffo jesu, King Woman, The Angelic Process

The new Amenra kicks ass. The inclusion of ethereal female vocals and spectral spoken-voice lines in Dutch works terribly well as counterpoints to the anxious post-doom soundscapes.

So there's this band called Maybeshewill. They take a basic post rock foundation, add some orchestral stuff, occasionally use some glitch beats and samples, and kick everything up to 11. They're the most intense post rock band I've ever heard, to the point that it's hard to even call them post rock. They also have a LOT of metal influence, throwing heavy-as-balls riffs into otherwise chill songs. They have some borderline sludge metal songs. If you're going to listen to an album, try I Was Here for a Moment, Then I Was Gone for the more pretty stuff, or Not for Want of Trying for the heavy and sludgy stuff.

Emotional and dramatic:

If you're into the breaky stuff by Maybeshewill, it's pretty much straight 65daysofstatic influence from the early albums. They didn't do the hard guitar riffs, though. That's probably mostly Boris influence.

You're definitely right about the 65daysofstatic influence. I'm very familiar with 65dos, and I actually discovered Maybeshewill back when I was looking for similar bands. In fact, I think I was listening to both of these bands before I ever tried metal. At first I was a little put off by how similar the two sounded, but nowadays I can hear how big their musical differences actually are. They both have a similar cinematic post rock foundation and glitch elements, but 65dos leans more on the glitch/electronic stuff (and currently make exclusively electronic music), and Maybeshewill mostly sticks with even more cinematic post rock.

I haven't heard of Boris though. If they have the same kind of hard riffs, I'll definitely be checking them out. Any album recommendations?

I think Amplifier Worship and Flood are classics in their own right. I always come back to Pink - it starts off with a spaced-out, droney, shoegazing song, and then the rest of the album is just banging noisy heavy rock, in a particular Japanese style. Their discography is very varied, and each album has a lot of variety too. Heavy Rocks is a bit weird even for them.

Pretty good ethereal melodic dark post rock. Both male and female vocals convey a nice feeling of spleen.

IT IS FREE:

I'd actually go with 'The Quietest Place on Earth' on this one. Such a beautiful sophomore album from these Aussies.
https://youtu.be/MZZtenar0SE

As for less well-known stuff, I'd consider 'Karas' post-metal. Was bummed to find out they stopped shipping CDs overseas as of lately, fearing they'd get lost or something. Still, great album.

Free Post-BM à la Schammasch mixed with Oxiplegatz (if that makes sense); easy on the ears.
