Ok, I'm working at home at the moment listening to a lot of records every day (nice), and just got lost in this:


Damn, that's good.

Also, we haven't mentioned Burst here.

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...


I checked this band out - thanks for the suggestion! I love ambient/noise aura in the music!

Hypothermia's Skogen's Hjarta is rather post-y (USELESS NEW ADJECTIVE), a radical departure from their (his?) previous ( ) stuff.
And Hooded Eagle's self-titled EP (Google these guys for a Myspace... I'm too lazy right now). And I think they've got something new coming sometime(?)

Any other suggestions?

actually a Chowd transplant... grew up a Masshole, and still root for the Bruins, Sox, Pats, C's in that order...

that said, I do like both the Dbacks (local boys) and the Brew Crew. Went to Milwaukee for a wedding about 8-9 years ago, groom/buddy took us all to Miller Park for a game... good time at the game, aside from the pathetic replacement for that old beer slide... made better by the fact when they announced celeb b-days in between innings, it happened to be Mojo Nixon's, so they blared "Elvis Is Everywhere."

i'm rooting for whoever comes out of this series to win it all.

will see if those are on spotify, if so i'll inject them into my stoner/sludge play list. else it might be a while.

Must have killed you watching the Sox blow that 10 game lead in Sept. Pat's and Packers are very similar this year. They score a boatload of points but can't stop anyone.

If you want anymore post/sludge suggestions PM me. I have about 1000 bands I'd love to share!

sox - not really. the best part about being a sox fan "abroad" is i am removed from a lot of the negative obsession. i wanted one championship in my lifetime - got it in the most dramatic turn of events possible, and got a second to boot. everything else is just bonus. the sox had no pitching down the stretch (i got a midnight call from Theo asking if i could throw a few innings...) and the o needed to put up a touchdown to win. that's no joke. i think they might have had one win last month without putting up 6 or 7 runs. i wasn't kidding myself - even if they made the playoffs, they'd be out in 4. the only thing that bugged me was Tito Francona (a fellow Arizona grad) getting blamed and axed - although I'm happy he got out of town on the high moral ground. the vast majority know he's not to blame. Bear Down, Tito.

Do me a favor, wait about a month, then pm me with a half dozen/dozen bands to check out. I have another package of cd's incoming from Solitude Productions that I will have to review, coupled with a couple other random reviews.

RWAKE is one, caught one track, seemed they deserve mention on this thread based on the little i've heard.

the cool thing about reviewing is lots of "free cd's!" - the drawback is once i have 3+ on my plate i feel guilty for listening to anything else "just for fun."

I already mentioned them in the new album topic, but Omega Massif have a good new album out (also on Spotify, as are their previous two). It's instrumental sludge/post-rock in the vein of Pelican or Year Of No Light. Heavier than Pelican, but more rhythmic and math-y than YONL.

Amia Venera Landscape - The Long Procession

Terrific album...think Cult of Luna meets Rosetta (where haven't we heard that before) with Todglichter Angst production!

Amia Venera Landscape are awesome. Gotta give a word of warning, though: they are not really metal (and I can't say I fully agree with your comparisons) but rather a post-hardcore band with a heavier take at their genre and lots of instrumental wankery to make it interesting. I really like them.

But it is rather telling that you should mention them: the sludge and post-metal genres are pretty close to post-hardcore and screamo (and "real" metalcore), so much so that it's hard to tell with bands like Amia Venera Landscape, Helms Alee or Will Haven if they're metal or some derivative of hardcore. Hopefully they can bridge the gap between the fanbases and break some preconceptions.

I see these guys haven't been mentioned anywhere. I've been tripping on their album again. They've got a bit of a Church of Misery vibe going with the vocals and the guitar tones

AmenRa are totally awesome. I first came across them at Roadburn three or four years ago. And live they are really brooding and actually quite creepy as well.

Another gem found on the web...thank god for music blogs

Look To Windward - Fortunes Haze

A great mixture of clean and growl vocals, post and prog riffs and atmo and sludgy passages. Terrific!
