There should be a thread for these proggy post-rock bands. It's not really metal, it's not really fusion. 

 

Chon, Scale The Summit, Polyphia, etc.

 

 

 

 

Sometimes these kids are getting a SUPER Satriani vibe. And I looove meeeee some Satriani.

Eh, this really isn't the same thing as math-rock. Hell most of the bands in there don't count as math-rock and could probably be put here.

Polyphia is pretty cool and I already dig Chon and Scale the Summit.

God.

 

Chon.

 

 

 

It makes me so happy to see this generation and younger musicians doing cool melodic instrumental shit like this.

The thing about a lot of Math rock that bugs me is a lot of the times it's just droney and technical without really saying anything important musically or melodically. I like Polyphia cause there tend to be a lot of melodies in their songs.

DAMN!!!!  Plini is a good find! There were some* parts in the beginning that reminded me of Fang Island (ugh, why do they suck now). Also Around the 2:08 mark, doesn't that sound like the Fairy Fountains or Temples from the Ocarina of time?

 

 

I wonder what kind of bands Japan has put out that is a  proggy post-rock bands. It's not really metal, it's not really fusion.

Most of these bands piss me off SUPER BAD at my core for some reason. Still love Chon, much so. But a lot of the others I hear them and I just get ANGERY because they have shred powers and end up using them for music that sounds like The Sharper Image.

 

I saw Polyphia open for Chon once, and there was such a stark contrast in quality. Like Chon had clearly cut their teeth jamming and stuff, Polyphia was kind of like a wav of each band member playing super close to simultaneously. I dunno. I don't remember their set at all.

 

I've played with bands that sound like a lot of these bands, and in a lineup I could never tell you the difference between them. They all make the same face and do the head bob thing too.

 

So I'm'a go on record and say fuck this scene, except for a very slim portion of them that rule super hard.

Unsure how proggy it may or may not be, but Pelican has always been my favorite post-rock.  Some of their songs are just immortal to me.

 

Pelican - Aurora Borealis

 

 

Pelican - Sirius

 

 

Pelican - Untitled (Australasia)
