Somewhere along their search for musical footing, Anathema made this post-rock gem with a heavy focus on it's fuzzy sound with clear, piercing vocals. An honest album to really be believed.

The first proper full-length after years of touring on demos and a split-up of the band, and I can say it disappointing. It doesn't deliver on the dynamic, deep post-metal I'd come to expect. It has it's moments but is rather flat at the end of it.

An older record when post-rock was still new and fresh. This is among the best of it's time, but since the explosion of the genre, the roots seem to slowly become less interesting, as we know now the full extend of possibilities. But that wouldn't have happened without records like these, so.

A smaller Godspeed makes for a more modest record (with equally long albumtitles). A sincere and tragic record which envelops as slow as possible by adding layers of radio-samples, tragic keys and strings. A desolate, lonely work. Magnificent.

Part post-rock, part glitchy electronic with catchy hooks and beats. A dangerous mix, but EZ3kiel does it just right. The flow of the album, balancing the two sides of it, is just great. It makes the whole an interesting listen.

Dive into history with a sweet mix of electro, post-rock and sampling somewhere in between Massive Attack and Godspeed, You Black Emperor! The creativity in using all kinds of elements and genres oozes over this album and results in a most promising EP.
