I enjoyed Caves Of Steel's Troposphere/Magnetosphere EP.

I guarantee you won't listen to anything as challenging as Swans' "The Seer."

I'm not an expert on post-rock, but check out Gifts From Enola's side of their split w/ Caravels.

Slap, I recall you mentioning Young Hunter on here. I saw them written up on Metal Bandcamp, so I checked them out. They're great! Remind me a lot of SubRosa.

Other stuff I'm enjoying:
Self-Corruption - History of Clowns without a doubt one of the better grind records I've heard in a long time.
Vilipend - Inamorata If you like Gaza, Enabler, or Protestant, check these dudes out. Fuckin' amazing album...
Ghostlimb - Confluence Justin Smith is the fucking man. Along with playing top-notch noisy hardcore in Ghostlimb, he does cinema-grind in Graf Orlock and hardcore/powerviolence in Dangers.

EDIT: Speaking of Protestant, their new album Reclamation is killer as well. Tragedy meets Modern Life is War with black metal influence

It's every other Mono album redux, except a little lighter in tone, and only better than Hymn to the Immortal Wind.

That was okay, but nothing groundbreaking. The first track was pretty good.

I see they also have a full length coming out in November, from which only two tracks are up for listen on their bandcamp. I'll listen to that and the split before the year's up. Thank you Larv .

I did a while back but he had nothing. Could be wrong, but I don't get the feeling he puts as much time into it as he used to.


Post-rock so far:

1. Mono - For My Parents
2. If These Trees Could Talk - Red Forest
3. té - Thus, The Illusion of Density Comes Apart at the Seems
4. Pray For Sound - Monophonic
5. Hypomanie - Calm Down, You Weren't Set on Fire
6. Dumbsaint - Something That You Feel Will Find Its Own Form
7. Collapse Under the Empire - Fragments of a Prayer

Caspian's Waking Season and Summer Fades Away's We Meet the Last Time, Then Departure will hopefully oust some of those albums before it's said and done.

And I haven't given the Swans album enough time yet.

I'm still frustrated that Exhumed was tied with Steel Panther last year...

Disagree with that critique. I think the inclusion of the Wordless Music Orchestra makes a huge difference, and I think conceptually it feels like they're really moving past whatever "post-rock" initially meant and just making the most gorgeous, cinematic music a guitar-oriented group can manage.

It's in my top 10 and I'd be surprised if it isn't there come year's end.

Both are bomb ass bands. (I like Steel Panther more but to each their own). I know you don't like them though

Well Hymns featured a 28-piece chamber orchestra, but granted, this feels different and their early albums weren't so orchestral. Mono has always been past whatever post-rock was supposed to be, especially since You Are There. They were never in the aping EITS or Mogwai business and they never tried to do what Godspeed did, but for an album like this to maximize its potential it needs a trumpet or a distortion pedal or some of the heaviness from their first three albums or something to make it sound like more than a Michael Bay film score.
