Here's a good one on my list, no vocals but excellent music none the less...

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:

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:
http://www.myspace.com/tidesfromnebula

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.

I see no one has mentioned Black Shape Of Nexus. Absolutely crushing, utterly riff-based sludge (except the Microbarome Meetings album which is pure drone) from Germany. They have a couple of releases available for download on their website, especially the Live in Mannheim tape is devastating. I've given a shot to pretty much their whole discography and you can't go wrong with these guys.

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)


I've heard all of those. I actually decided to check out dukatalon because of your review, I had seen the album around but never really checked them out. Definitely a good find for me
Any other suggestions?

Woburn House is a good band, psychedelic post-metal.

I was on the bus an hour ago and saw a street sign saying "Woburn Place" and naturally thought of Woburn House. Never properly listened to them but they're on Zeitgeister so I can imagine they're quality stuff, as that song would indictate.

It baffles me that Electric Wizard hasn't been mentioned yet - so there it is. The Dopethrone album is good.

In Atmospheric Metal you absolutely have to listen to The Ocean's Precambrian in its entirerity (spelling ok?). In my mind, it's a master piece. And there's value for money - All their albums are intented as double disc albums. Fluxion (followed by Aeolian) is also awesome but also a bit more influenced by hardcore. Their later releases Heliocentric and Anthropocentric are much more progressive but still very good in their own right - just very different.

Check the Spanish band Horn Of The Rhino (Album: Weight Of Coronation) for some charming and really down tempo Sludge/Doom.

Electric Wizard are good (if a little overrated), but I don't see how they fit into this topic. They play dirty stoner doom, nothing much atmospheric or postish about it. I've been meaning to check Ocean out but I've yet to have the chance.

I suggest you start with precambrian. Brilliant album. I think this was the album that actually got me into the whole sludge scene along with mastodon.

I agree Electric Wizard are not pioneers or pure awesomeness. It often comes down to if you like their sound, which is very dirty. I thought they would fit in here, seeing as bands such as High On Fire was also mentioned. Also in my oppinion, Electric Wizard do work up an atmosphere, since many of their songs are 10+ min. long while nothing much really happens. It's not the "windy sound effects behind softly picked guitar chords"-kind of atmosperic though.
Also, this just goes to show how all the sub genres of metal has made it rather difficult to agree on what's what. I actually thought Electric Wizard would be included in Sludge.

Anyway, regarding The Ocean (or The Ocean Collective, as they are also known as), you should start with Precambrian. Good stuff.

Oh yeah, I guess there's some sludgy stuff in Electric Wizard, I just mainly connected the sludge in this topic's title to atmospheric sludge, the kind that these so-called post-metal bands tend to play, or even straighter stuff that nonetheless has that hardcore vibe. Like Dukatalon etc. But yeah, it's not like recommending Electric WIzard is a bad thing in any case.

Now, let's not turn this into a thread about how to label Electric Wizard.

Regarding postish metal, try giving Danish Kellermensch a listening. It's some very interesting post/alternative metal (or whatever label you like)
