Amenra is good live? Will try to check out some concert vids or something then.

Yes, I rarely listen to any of their albums, but live I'm always on the edge of my seat. Even when there are no seats.

They only get that amount of exposuredue to their age. Totally not due to the music they play. How goddamned boring generic post metal can you be? Well, apparently as much as these guys.

Makes sense, since the first time I heard about them was when a bunch of 17-year olds won Humo's Rock Rally, not when a great post metal band won Humo's Rock Rally.

Listened to almost all albums here and Thee Plague Of Gentlemen is the bestest best until now.

You should. I actually made this list to become more aware of my home-country scene, so feel free to recommend anything you feel is missing.
My favorite here is definitely Nothing But The Whole though.

tbh I find them quite boring on album, but live they are totally riveting.

Hehe, you have recommended them before, actually. I've listened to one album (can't remember which one) and wasn't convinced but they've been on my list of bands I will eventually check out. Eventually.

haha true . My bad, didn't check the first page.
As for Oceans Of Sadness, they're pretty weird, but not in a wacky sense, they're just... unconventional. Their music can definitely take some time before sinking in, I must say (I, too, wasn't impressed at first)

Three Belgian bands I'd like to mention:

Manic Movement got a big promotion from the Belgian metal radio shows back in the lates 90s.

Epysode, our Belgian Ayreon.

Anwynn, I used to know two original members, but they both left, and the band switched styles from traditional/power metal to symphonic death metal.

Woah, after two years the recommendations start pouring in

I will get to them as fast as I can (EDIT: which will likely not be fast at all)

Yeah, it's not that I remember disliking them, I just needed more time with their music (but I haven't been as active a music-listener as I was then so I just never got to it.) Thanks for the reminder though

I haven't really checked out anything metal-related lately. I've just been floating around some old favorites and exploring some genres and artists I missed. I might give it a spin later today, but first gonna go for the new Wolvennest since I'm more excited about that one
