Also, one genre I am new to but not sure if I'm on board is post-hardcore. I am digging Amia Venera Landscape and I also just listened to Young And In The Way - I Am Not What I Am
Do you have any other recs in this catagory?


Sorry for late response, I noticed it when you posted but kinda forgot about it as I didn't immediately have much to say.

I don't know the genre too well, I think most of it has been pretty radio-friendly teenager music. But there's good stuff there too, of course. I'll also throw in some screamo recommendations, because it's very close to post-hardcore and the genre discussed here, and I've had more luck in that field. And frankly, I'm not sure what exactly qualifies as post-hardcore.

Rinoa
Envy
Devil Sold His Soul
Pianos Become The Teeth
Pageninetynine (sometimes spelled Pg.99 or something)
Maths
Carpathian
Majority Rule
Funeral Diner
Touché Amoré
Thrice
La Dispute
Defeater
Ampere
Gospel
I Would Set Myself On Fire For You
A Cold Dead Body
Poison The Well
At The Drive-In (maybe a bit too radio-friendly for me, same with Poison The Well)

Then there's older stuff like Unwound and Fugazi (their Repeater is a bit of a classic, I think), but not really familiar with what happened in the 90s and earlier.


If you're not afraid of going into more alt-rock territory, the latest album "No Devolución" from Thursday is brilliant. One of my favorite albums of 2011, such solid songwriting. If you like them, you might want to try Thrice whom I also mentioned (but don't like nearly as much). And on that note, I think Hum are considered somewhat post-hardcore too. Their 1997 classic Downward Is Heavenward is rather good, but maybe not your cup of tea.

Yeah this album is great. Checking out your list now. Already loving Dirge and Jet Plane. Neila as well. Like you said, sounds similar to Isis.

In terms of being boring, uninspired and on a long downhill slide, you mean? They had basically two nice albums and that's it.

Iron, I didn't realize you weren't an Isis fan. I am surprised! I think Wavering Radiant is one of the best post albums ever! Curious to which two you think are decent?

I'm pretty mainstream: I like Oceanic and Panopticon. The rest of the albums are decent, but I don't feel they stand out in the genre at all. I think their two last albums were their two worst. Both In the Absence and Wavering Radiant had good moments, but other times they just sounded so tedious.

I don't really dislike their music. I guess it's like the Explosions In The Sky -effect: some mediocre band is praised to high heavens as a standard to measure the genre against, and that creates an unfavorable reaction.

Weird. I think Oceanic, Panopticon and Absense can be lumbed together - not much difference to me. Where as Wavering has some of most original post-metal song writing I've heard yet (especially the first 3 tracks). Oh well, this is what makes metal great; Everybody's specific tastes!

Irepress are so good. Really one of the best groups playing such heavier kind of post-rock. I like them way better than all that Russian Circles/Caspian/Pelican stuff.
