Christian Mumford the greatest band... Abit post Porcupine tree/early Tool... see you on TIDAL... Jerusalem... Favorite track: Citadel.
Stephen O' Connor

Stephen O' Connor More invention in one album than some bands display in entire careers.Expansive , forward thinking but at the same satisfyingly heavy, like Deftones decided to make an album with Devin Townsend. FFO: Devin Townsend, Tesseract, Opeth Favorite track: Deliverance.
DJL68 thumbnail
DJL68 Despite some references to this being "post-rock", there is no such thing because there cannot be rock after rock when it's still around. I really hate that label. Back on track though, what we do have here is a brilliant amalgamation of various heavy genres with shimmering interludes, all blended seamlessly. It's a heavy, progressive, radiant offering that ebbs and flows wonderfully. Another stellar release from John Bassett.
Zhakathoom thumbnail
Zhakathoom Never would I miss out on the 3rd edition of the Arcade Messiah gospel. :) It's more in the same vein as the previous two: Instrumental post-rock goodness. Perhaps even more refined and polished. This is destined for grandeur no doubt!
Nocturnal Stalker
Nocturnal Stalker thumbnail
Nocturnal Stalker Probably the heaviest record of Arcade Messiah so far. And with some additional vocals too. Mr. Bassett keeps evolving the sound creating piece on the border between progressive rock and post-rock. Favorite track: Revolver.
