Seriously, post-metal mostly died when Isis quit. Neurosis is the only trve saviour.

"hope these aren't just a bunch of b-sides"

they are

and Karl I pretty much agree with you totally and CoL did change their sound but I really like it and still support them because they're not purposely fitting in to one specific genre.

yeah there are some post metal records out there worth checking out that weren't put out by Neurosis,
ISIS or CoL but they're comparatively few and far between compared with the quality those three
released

Is it any different as a standalone piece versus as an extension of the album?

Yes, but having the remix at the end kind of prevents that. The three new tracks are a whole another page out of the same Cult Of Luna book.

Are they up to par with the album tracks, or do they sound like B-sides?

Also, Robert, how did you get a copy of this?

They're on par for sure, they could have easily been slotted in with the release earlier in the year.

Sput's staffers' aren't the only ones who receive promos dude, I've got the new Soulfly coming in now.

They still sound like CoL and I will admit they've carved out their own sound. Just a really boring one. I like their adventurous leap they took on Somewhere Along the Highway and then it's downhill from there.

Isis and Neurosis are both amazing bands, but they're not all that post-metal has to offer as a genre... so it's hard to call the genre dead when groups like MoTA, We Lost The Sea, Cult of Luna, and so on are still producing quality material rather recently while being labelled as post-metal.
