Also if there are any suggestions for jazzy post-rock similar to Do Make Say Think or the really powerful soundscapes of This Will Destroy You's "Tunnel Blanket" album it would be greatly appreciated. I've come to a bit of a halt with finding great post-rock.


I love DMST, they often get overlooked in relation to the whole Godspeed thing. I have a few recs for you, though I'm never sure if they fall into post-rock or math-rock.

Maybe Unhome. Some crossover into post-hardcore.

Listening to Dianogah right now and already loving it! Don't know about the others yet but I trust your judgment. Thanks! :)

I'm looking for something that sounds like Fever Ray's If I Had a Heart (the song that opens the tv show Vikings).

I'm looking for artists that sound like Aphex Twin's early material, specifically the old-school acid-techno side of things rather than the glitchy electronica that he later became known for. I'd prefer it to have that rough DIY feel that Aphex does so well rather than anything slick and polished. As a fan since the early 90s I know the obvious names like Mu-Ziq and Kosmik Kommando (Mike Dred), and I'm well-steeped in the more electronica/IDM side of things, so I'm specifically after that acid-techno side of Aphex's sound. It can be from the 80s/90s, or more recent. I suspect there will be a lot of obscure BandCamp artists trying to emulate the classic Aphex sound, can you recommend any?

Some examples to jog your memory...

Any suggestions for dark ambient/electronic artists like The Haxan Cloak? Love his last album.

That's pretty damn good, cheers! I've known the name for years, even had a track on a comp somewhere, just never explored his stuff; for some reason I'd always imagined him sounding a bit more mainstream. Thanks again.

Looking for stuff like Have a Nice Life's The Unnatural World, preferably a bit more even in terms of mixing and a bit more fluid as an album (track to track feels a bit jarring).



I know other acts like Wreck and Reference and Planning For Burial; they're good too. But something like this LP is what I'm really after.

Hi... Not sure if I'm going to recieve a reply but I'll give it a shot anyways.

I'm looking for really dark industrial or ambient stuff, highly dissonant and disharmonic, somewhere I read about how highly disharmonic music induced fear, dread or horror to a person's mind, the post had a youtube video of a song like this, and while I wasn't exactly "afraid" I found it captivatingly unsettling. It reminded me of Silent Hill for some reason, when the walls become bloodied and rusted steel and everything got dark.

Try a band called The Haxan Cloak. Droney dark ambient that sounds like it came out of a Silent Hill game.
