Yo, let's get a thread going with some solid Post recommendations.

Who are your favorite bands? Who are some bands you recommend?

Unfortunately it seems like post music isn't very much enjoyed over here with exception of Cult of Luna and some post black, and it's understandable, I remember having extreme trouble to get into, even more than bm. Also the fact that many post metal bands are prone to experiment with stuff that isn't metal, it end up that they're not even qualified as metal enough for this site's standards.

But anyway, Isis' Oceanic was probably the first of its genre that really got into me, and still remains one of my fav albums... the already mentioned CoL it's like Opeth to me, I should love it but I simply can't... Downfall of Gaia, Planks, Mouth of the Architect, Tempel, Agrimonia, Morne, Russian Circles, ITTCT, hubris... there are so many great post bands these days...

Right now I'm mostly looking forward post rock that goes more into the metal side, not many bands goes for it I guess, or maybe I'm just not looking deep enough...

Neurosis, Cult of Luna and Isis have recorded some of the best metal albums ever. I also enjoy Amenra, Old Man Gloom, Rosetta, Year of no Light, Celeste, Rorcal...

The last Sumac album is probably the best post metal in a while. Cult of Luna new album from this year is also great (although I prefer Vertikal).

There's been some good stuff released this year. The new Mono.

We Lost The Sea has a pretty solid new one

Harborlights is pretty good mix of chill buildups.

I'm also surprised We Lost the Sea isn't on here. Their early stuff is really no different from Isis or The Ocean:

Any post rock/metal you guys can recc? Something in the lines of Watered, Kokomo and Terraformer(they made some great splits btw), anything that doesn't go extremely into an way or another.

A Swarm of the Sun is a really cool band I discovered last year. Like the name might suggest, there are some Neurosis vibes, but the music isn't claustrophobic and suffocating like Neurosis, but pretty expansive and melancholic. The newest album The Woods is an incredibly good doomy post-rock piece. Atmosphere-wise, it has the feel of a post-metal album, but it doesn't get heavily distorted or riffy at any point. There are some clean vocals, but it's mainly instrumental.

Harborlights sounds pretty cool, thanks for the recommendation!
