I've never been a big fan of post hardcore, but like any other genre the best stuff was around the beginning of it. Still, give me post punk any day.

Yea Post Rock is like Progressive Rock. They started out as experimental genres with great innovative bands but then just kind of turned into a generic sound with hundreds of copycats oversaturating everything. The whole point of being "progressive" is to do something new. Not just rehash the same progressive stereotypes of Yes. I guess every genres loses its originality after a couple years though. Theres only so much you can do.

KILL, ever listened to Bark Psychosis? They're an earlier post-rock act that was highly influenced by Talk Talk. Not nearly as good, but still neat.

Glassjaw also. Some noise rock bands can be arguably tagged as post-hardcore so there's a lot of good shit. Shame the genre has become a dick-sucking scene-pit.

Damn, thrash's awesome but you better listen to Leaves. Plus there is a song called "October All Over", so ironic.

Yea Inveigh. The older bands were just hardcore with a more expansive sound. Dont know why it became gay.

But still better than modern post-hardcore. Glassjaw is like the beginning. Big Black is pretty sweet.

For a little bit I kind of liked Sigur Ros but for the most part I can't get in to them. A little too far on the sappy and twee side for me.
