Make sure you try and get the double cd version of 'Altar', as it contains a bonus 29 minute drone track conisisting of Dylan Carson (Earth), Boris and Sunn. It's a great track and wel worth hunting down the limited edition for.

I don't know why some of you are listing releases that aren't from 2006 though :) Pain:Noise:March and Bodycage for example.

Surprised at the number of post-metal fans around here.


Firstly, those two albums were only made available to me this year, as they didn't have anything in the way of distro. Secondly, post-metal contains quite a lot of ambience, so it isn't really that surprising the same people would enjoy Lustmord (;

Its true - I tend to enjoy alot of post metal more because of its ambient qualities, rather than any kind of actual metal form or style. perhaps thats just me?

^ Probably. Post-Metal is the form of music that I've been listening to the most lately...that and good hardcore (Converge).

I had to look up "post metal" but now I know :)
So many categories and sub categories constantly being made up. Hard to keep track.

Interesting to see Isis and Red Sparrows mentioned a few times.

yeah, metal is bad for that. Not as bad as electronic music though... good lord. As for post metal... it's just something coined because it borrows heavily from post rock. There's a very broad range of metal out there that falls roughly in the category, there's no real well defined boundaries. I tend to call everything like the isis, cult of luna, mouth of architect, etc. crowd, and the sunn O))), Neurosis, certain Melvins albums, Jesu, Black Boned Angel, etc. stuff "droney sludgey dirgey doomy bliss-out shoegaze metal". I'm pretty sure that's the technical term for the overarching genre.

no problem. I was quite shocked at just how well the concept worked out. I could see the idea flopping HORRIBLY if not done by someone skilled enough. Who'da thunk it? Breakcore, idm, drill n bass etc. seems to be perfectly paired with grindcore :p

With an album such as that, it's very hard to say! The fourth piece sticks out due to that incredibly 'hazey,' druggy guitar line that weaves its way throughout it. It's by far and away the most interesting album I've heard in years, in terms of how it is layered and composed. Which tracks appeal to you most?

it was a GREAT show this year with porn and big business opening up. Me and a couple of friends got to follow them around for a few days, deadhead style, except we showered a bit more.
One of the good things about the melvins is that it's ALMOST certain that they will tour every year. Also, if the planets align just so, we might get to witness a Melvins/Lustmord show one of these days. :D :wink:
