8 years is a hell of a long time between releases, and New Zealand's instrumental post rock/metal band Jakob have pulled off a miraculous comeback. I don't think the band was ever on the brink of dissipating, but the fact is life altering occurrences left many in doubt. Freak injuries to all the band members' hands, public relation snafus and what seemed an insurmountable layoff put the band and their highly anticipated album Sines in between a rock and a hard place. Alas, post-fans will be excited to know Jakob sound mightier than ever, like the band I discovered while they were touring with Isis in 2008.

My first encounter with Jakob was with their Cale:Drew album since many post rock bands look like each other using reverbs and effects and ambients in a very dull way Jakob got my attention\cause they were diffrent the melodys, the up and downs, guitars and drums looks like they have been doing this for a long time and they know what they want
this album is even better than Cale:Drew album Specially because of Drums
tracks are more creative and smooth u can listen through 3 or 4 tracks without being annoyed
cause sometimes post metal and post rock needs patience but this album is very smooth and easy very good album
