Post-Rock is Awesome

The title basically covers everything I want to say in this post. But that would make for a boring post. So, let me say this. I did not know what post-rock was until about 2 weeks ago. It has become my second favourite genre of music in that short time (melodic death will never be unseated!).

In case you are like I was (I hope for your sake you aren't), post-rock is a very psychedelic genre of music, with incredibly long songs, huge volume changes and some great riffs. Think metal meets Pink Floyd. So far, my favourite bands are Sigur Ros, Russian Circles and on the heavier side, Isis. All of those bands have something I really like about them. For Sigur Ros, it is the singer's voice, for Russian Circles it's the awesome riffs and for Isis it's the sludge feel with some good growling on top.

Anyways, that's all

Sigur Rós isn't complete without the accent. :P

I can't say it's my thing, but this is the first time I've heard of post-rock!
