China was a neat
You got to be fucking Kidding me!!!!!!!!!!!!! The ending of this album is truly apocalyptic. Also the build ups here can match up with the most extreme of those of doom/drone metal lengthwise.

Such a fucking crushing album, a peak at like 20+ years into a career. Amazing

Atmospheric and dark as hell. More of an ambient journey than a rock one - the definition of post-rock I guess.

There's a lot of the more recent Swans albums I still haven't checked out but their old 80's/early 90's stuff is practically perfect for me.

Swans is like Moonsorrow of post-rock, I don't think I've ever heard anyone saying anything bad about their albums. And rightfully so.
You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like!
