Artist / Albums that I'm listening to lately - a review...


Neurosis - Given to the Rising -> This is one of the few 'sludge metal , post-metal , doom-metal' bands that i like. Their music is not too 'slow or doomish'... they are more progressive. Imagine a post-rock band like Explosion in the Sky playing metal. That's how they sound like.. vocals are not that upfront which is good because it gives more 'atmospheric' feel. You basically can't go wrong if a band like Mastodon is heavily influenced by Neurosis.



My Bitter End - The Renovation -> If you like The Faceless , you'll like this band as well. This Middletown, New York band's album is full of heavy break downs in most songs.... melodic break downs as well... great guitar riffs , odd-time signatures...good tight drummings... the overall feel is very much 'deathcore'... great album to listen to..


Pelican - City of Echoes -> If Neurosis is too 'heavy' and Mogwai is too 'soft' , then Pelican will suit your taste of 'post-metal'... riffs are very metal-influenced , drums are recorded 'big' which is like most post-rock recordings (it sounds good) , the bass is solid with distortions at where it matters.... the songs are progressive and not boring at all... :) I personally like the song 'Bliss in Concrete' because it has a good build-up to the double pedal part in the middle of the song... They are like a less aggresive Mastodon ...
