Khoma - The Second Wave (2006)

This album sounds like a weird fusion of Cult of Luna (2 of its members are in this band), Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Aeon Spoke, and maybe Tool. I hesitate to call it "post rock", since it's fairly straightforward, melancholic metal. The music contains your typical downtuned CoL sludgey riffs, but the vocals are more akin to those of Thom Yorke and Jonsi Birgisson. Throw in some great melodies and the fact that the songs are only about 4 minutes long, and you've got yourself a very listenable post rock/metal album. Check it out.

    I'm liking this. It reminds me of Porcupine Tree, as well.

    haven't listened to it yet, but from the description i can say that back in the day we called stuff like this post-metal.

    Perhaps I am alone in thinking this but they remind me of Cave In's slower paced songs, only with simpler guitar work.
