|teamsters post - "whatever" 2017 list|
Narrowing down my favorite post - metal, rock, hardcore, black, punk, death, grunge, etc albums for 2017. I am using Sput as a moderator. I hope you don't mind me sharing....and tell me what I missed.
Greek post metal band with female vox and a great sophomore release.
Band can do no wrong.
Interesting concoction of sub-genres.
End of Chapter
My 2017 AOTY. Go listen.
In Mourning band members go post.
|6||Below the Sun|
The doom metal from their previous release has all but been deleted.
A post metal concept album? Yes please.
I need to visit the pacific northwest. So much good music.
Dark Towers, Bright Lights
4 songs, 45 minutes. Monolithic.
|10||Dystopian Future Movies|
Atmosphere and aura illuminated by haunting female vox.
The texture on this album separates it from the rest of the "same shit different band" stuff.
|12||Glare Of The Sun|
Austrian post metal with some pinches of doom and melody.
Top tier because it actually sounds like post metal I haven't heard yet. Fresh.
This actually did pretty well in the post-punk off competition here at Sput.
|15||Guantanamo Party Program|
Poland has the best band name on the list playing noisy but coherent post metal.
My 2017 post rock AOTY.
Minnesota post metal, ya der hey.
Katatonia comparisons surfacing. I can see it.
Instrumental post metal capped off with a 25 minute masterpiece.
Time Doesn't Heal Anything
The best produced album on the list.
Biggest surprise. Had no idea they were making new music. Go check their entire discog.
Doom/sludge with incredible vocals.
|24||November Might Be Fine|
Poland has become a post powerhouse.
|25||Our Ceasing Voice|
Free Like Tonight
Not for everyone. Good luck.
Surrounding The Void
My grower of the year. Took multiple listens to realize how good this is.
|27||Process of Guilt|
Criminally underrated Portuguese band. Check Faemin too.
Heavy and crushing post black.
More Armine ambience, less Armine screams. Unusual design choice. King Ivory Tower is my SOTY.
|30||Set and Setting|
Instrumental post metal like Pelican. Silky-smooth atmosphere.
|31||Show of Bedlam|
More doomy and sludgy but the female vox is the deal maker. Subrosa comes to mind.
Made Of Breath Only
One of the best post rock bands on the planet.
More from the pacific northwest.
Amazing sound from this New Jersey based post metal outfit.
|35||The Death Of Money|
Repetitive and droning, I listened to this a ton during the first half of the year.
|36||The Mute Gods|
Tardigrades Will Inherit The Earth
A huge project from this supergroup that's more avantgarde and progressive.
Hints of crust punk on this dark, short and sweet LP from yep, you guessed it, Poland.
The Grand Annihilation
Mike Hill stripped all the black metal off in favor of an elementary sounding sludgy romp. I like it.
Masters of the quirky sludge, psyche, stoner scene.
3 | Release Yourself Through Desperate Rituals
Saved one of the best for last. So much going on in the music. Black, sludge, post...a terrific mixture put together so fluidly. Runner up 2017 AOTY.
