Haunting indie/blues/rock/noise. Especially the vocal performance on 'The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra' is so eeriely good, it pierces my nerves and shivers my spine. Who is she? Who is she to say goodbye?!
Blues Experimenteel Indie Post Rock
A Natural Disaster
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.
Post Rock Rock
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.
Metal Post Metal Post Rock
Come On Die Young
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.
He Has Left Us Alone But Shafts of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner of Our Rooms
Silver Mt. Zion
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.
Experimenteel Klassiek Post Rock
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.

The War Room
Public Service Broadcasting
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.
