I heard Back to Chapel Town and was like WOW, have ordered this
I like Vertikal and their debut a lot, but this sounds as though it's in a whole different league

Ugh, please do.

Finland and Back to Chapel Town are the best tracks within the genre.

Nah, Thirtyfour and Dim are some of the best 20 minutes for post-metal period. Love those 2 songs.

I've actually grown to like this album more than Panopticon and I fucking love Panopticon.

got salvation and somewhere along the highway. don't like either. but for some reason i'm still really compelled to get into this band and am tempted to buy vertikal. should i bother? my problem with this band is they're so slow all the time and then just explode in growly heavy sludge. it's either quiet or its loud, but it's always slow. does vertikal change that up at all?

isis is nothing like cult of luna. they have a lot of midtempo moments and their music is often more middling in volume as well. not just either really quiet or really loud. they often groove and wander in their songs. i just find every climax so formulaic with cult of luna. mostly going by salvation though as that's the last one i remember hearing. i do really like amenra's mass v though, even though it's pretty much the same as how i described cult of luna. maybe it's the production on that that i love.

rosetta aren't like that either. they have a lot of more upbeat music and maintain the intensity for a lot longer. awake in sleep is another awesome post-metal band akin to isis. rituals is a great post-metal band -- they're like cult of luna but have gradual builds, not just obvious explosions.

yeah they're nothing to write home about.

i just find every climax so formulaic with cult of luna.


then fix your ears or listen, don't hear, the music this time.

if you listen to their earlier records then maybe you'll understand their style and how it changed
throughout their works. just remember that post-metal never was meant to be post-rock with metal like
how it's wrongfully thought as /#postmetalmaster
