The band Big|Brave has been blacklisted, however I found their sound very close to heavy post-rock/stoner/doom (is post-sludge a thing?) with guitar-centered playing, loud distorstion...

I know they're more associated witht the post-rock scene, as they've collaborated with people from bands like Godspeed You! Black Emperor, or A Silver Mt. Zion, but on the other hand they are signed to Southern Lord, specialized in doom/sludge metal.

Their penultimate album, Ardor, (released 2017, possibly after the blacklisting) is pretty heavy, and even more so is their last album, A Gaze Among Them (released a couple months ago, definitely after the blacklisting).
And so, I'd like to give the band another chance.

PS: the blackilisting warning message says that the band is from US, which is inaccurate--they're actually from Montréal, Québec.

...and were are the metal riffs? That's some distorted Drone/Ambient with fuzzy but soft-as-hell Post-Rock. Maybe, maybe some doom metal riffs, but they are really rare. There's no way this is metal enough. Blacklist stays.
