I don't really hear any post rock in bands like Chon anyway. Am I missing something? When I think of post rock I think of shit like Mogwai.
A lot of these bands are really good, but I think the djentiness takes away from some bands. It's basically math rock with rhythm guitar chugs and really good production. I think coming from a background of listening to metal I was super turned off at first by the -core aesthetic coming from those kind of bands. Or I just really hated fans of those type of bands that I went to school with, despite the music itself being pretty cool.
But Chon is one of my favorite bands and I like a lot of that stuff. I guess I'm having a hard time distinguishing this as an actual "genre" because it isn't one (I mean that's totally fine because it isn't like "Space Harrier" is a "real" genre anyway ). Is this thread basically "bands that are math rocky but more melodic with modern professional production"? Because that's what the music sounds like. (Not trolling)
And oh my god JPop Marty Friedman is mah dude.
