Bongripper's Hippie Killer is pretty sweet.
Lento is releasing new material just now. They're instrumental.
Tephra are also cool and just about to realease an album too (if they already didn't).
Ufomammut obviously, anything from Snailking to Eve is nice.
Kollwitz are more like straight sludge, but they have their prettiness too.
Pelican are legendary, but I guess they're too well-known for this topic.
Solstafír are an Icelandic group who play pretty unique post-metal, not very sludgy at all.
Russian Circles are actually a post-rock band, but they're on the heavier end of the scale and will probably appeal to many people here.

I guess Godflesh and Jesu are known to anyone into alternative metal, so I won't go there. For simple sludge, the MS Awards nominees Dukatalon are great, and Black Cobra are cool too. For raw, sludgy post-hardcore try the French band Celeste.

Also, the stuff WingedOctopi posted is pretty good.

Good Post, especially like your Irreversible suggestion. Their Album "Light" is one of the best post releases I've ever heard! I'm trying to get this band visible on the website!

Abraham sounds good on MySpace, and Battlefields really impressed me. (Edit: I just remembered I actually knew East Of The Wall from the threeway split with Rosetta and Year Of No Light. They're pretty nice, but I don't like the clean vocals.) You may also like Envy, a Japanese screamo/post-rock band. They're not very heavy, they go more for melodies.


There's some great screamo bands that probably should go in the rock forum like Envy, but since sludge, "post-metal", post-hardocre and screamo are so closely connected I guess I'll mention one here. Funeral Diner are pretty atmospheric, my favorite screamo band maybe.

Tossing some seconds, and some firsts which might be obvious... just in case a total noob the genre also checks in here looking for suggestions:

Neurosis
Minsk
Ufomammut
Dukatalon
Bongripper


And some firsts:

Tombs (Sludge meets urban Black)
Shrinebuilder (all star project)
Torche (happy fun stuff partially rooted in sludge)
Eibon (equal parts sludge, doom, black... we popped in sludge/stoner for hte 2010 MSA's)
High On Fire
Kylesa
Baroness (perhaps light, but with some 70's prog rock and post stuff)

Oh yeah, if you just want classic sludge that doesn't borrow much from post-hardcore or post-rock, definetely check out Crowbar and Eyehategod. I really love them both. (The topic starter will probably know both, but in case a new passer-by doesn't like BitterCOld said.)

Intronaut is an awesome band too. They released an album last year "Valley Of Smoke", pretty groovy sludge/post-metal.

I agree with this... I would like to add Acid Bath to the list of great Sludge. God... Their debut is probably one of my top 5 cds in music EVER. Perfect masterpiece of filth.
Eyehategod is also one of my favorites in the genre, being less poethic and bluesy than Acid Bath but being way more fucked up when it comes to agression.

For those who haven't checked out Eyehategod, perhaps my review of their debut might give you inspiration to do so.

IronAngel mentioned the Japanese band Envy, so I have another one to add to the recommendation pile here from that region while we're on the subject. This band is more on the progressive side of things, but are still great fun to listen to:

http://www.hearjapan.com/store/group/MURATORIX

Buckethead is an obvious influence if you take a listen, but that's as good an influence as any. Plus, any Japanese band that has a track named "Speak Japanese or Die" must have good music to back it up.

I really recommend Buried At Sea, they are not featured on metalstorm. They play some kind of sludge doom and I think one of their members play in Minsk (the band) now.

If you want sludge, then I would recommend Rwake or Deadbird. Also more into post-metal/sludge Consciousness Removal Project and sludge/doom Bloody Panda. And I guess Cult of Luna, Baroness, Kylesa are something everyone knows anyway.

Everyone should check out Salome's Earthshattering 2010 album "Terminal" (though it is sludge it has a lot of noise/ambient type
passages)

This band has been around a while but if you like non-vocal Pelican style music check out this band from New Zealand

Jakob sound alright, but it's pretty generic post-rock to my ears. Caspian, Maserati, Russian Circles, Red Sparowes etc.

I don't think Kruger have been mentioned. Another interesting band operating between metal and post-hardcore is Amia Venera Landscape.

If there was one band I would recommend in this thread it would be these guys:

They play atmospheric instrumental post-metal, or something along those lines.
Also; heard they were touring Europe with Riverside in May, that would be awesome...

Lets see apart from the ones already mentioned here I guess you could check out

The Ocean - Hardcore/sludge (earlier stuff, the newer stuff is alot more progressive(?) but still quite good)
16
Bison BC
Struck by lightning
If you liked Torche, you could try Floor as well
Boris is good as well, a huge mix of genres in there from drone to sludge to noise to punk
Karp another hardcore sludge band has some similarity to Torche here and there, I've only heard their self titled album though.
