EXPERIMENTAL/POST METAL

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre

Experimental/Post Metal definition



Experimental Progressive Metal

Experimental progressive metal is a sub-genre of progressive metal characterized by the incorporation of innovative, eclectic elements, large-scale experimentation and the use of non-standard and unconventional sounds, instruments, song structures, playing styles, and vocal techniques. Experimentation in the music is a major criteria to define the genre where artists often add unique elements to the overall sound, while progressive metal usually has more focus on traditional metal instrumentation and higher levels of technical complexity.

It's nearly impossible to pinpoint the exact origin of Experimental Progressive Metal since experimentation is common in all music genres. Still it is clear that experimentation in the progressive metal sub-genre has slowly but steadily grown in popularity ever since its humble beginnings in the early 1980s.

Just like any other style, Experimental Progressive Metal has a few defining moments that have changed the rules for its sub-genre for years to come. Two of such moments are the releases of the debut album by MR.BUNGLE of August 1991 and its iconic follow up "Disco Volante" of 1995. MR BUNGLE became notorious for their heavy sound and mid-song shifts of musical style. The band has later spawned an array of established avant-garde side projects such as FANT‘MAS, SECRET CHIEFS 3 and ESTRADASPHERE but also inspired new Experimental Metal acts to take the music scene to new heights.
Another crucial artist in the development of Experimental Progressive Metal was the leading Avant Metal band of the 80s, CELTIC FROST. Their eclectic mix of Thrash, Doom, Symphonic and Goth Metal created a dark theatrical mystique that became a major influence among the experimental Extreme Metal bands of the 90s such as MY DYING BRIDE, ULVER, ARCTURUS among others. These bands served as an important source of inspiration for the experimental movement within extreme metal.

The bands listed under Experimental Progressive Metal have all, in various degrees, shed their extreme heritage in favor of embracing influences of the eclectic style going from art rock and ethnic up to free-jazz and even modernist music.

Art Metal
Art metal is a direct continuation of progressive metal but with the longing to expand the themes and styles of music while maintaining the technical complexity of the sub-genre.
These bands are more artistic than their progressive metal peers and tend to experiment, to a certain extent, but not as openly as the bands of the eclectic and avant-garde metal styles. Art metal comes in many shapes and forms. The virtuosity and complete unpredictability of DEVIN TOWNSEND, OSI and TOOL always manages to draw attention of both fans of traditional metal as well as the progressive music audience, while bands like ANATHEMA, DEADSOUL TRIBE and GORDIAN KNOT attract many fans of groove and atmospheric music into their vibrant soundscapes. Other notable acts include GREEN CARNATION, DARK SUNS and ANTIMATTER.

Eclectic Metal
These bands often add unconventional elements to their metal sound, whether it's experiments with various new sounds and styles that are otherwise uncommon in metal or by blending many styles, with metal being the referential core. Whether it's the ethnic elements of ORPHANED LAND's music that combines Middle Eastern folklore with the more traditional progressive metal sound or a completely unique mix of atmospheric, almost ambient, elements fused with metal that can be found in the sound of THE GATHERING, eclectic metal artists will always certainly bring a host of different styles and ideas to the table. Experimental metal can be found in numerous forms while featuring notable acts like INDUKTI, IN THE WOODS... and MAUDLIN OF THE WELL.

Avant-garde Metal
This style is generally considered to be more extreme in both its arrangements but most importantly extremely complex and unpredictable song structures. Compositions have the ambition of trying to breach boundaries of music and generally have significant experimental approaches to metal music. Most of this music borders on the realms of pure avant-garde while still maintaining a solid foundation in metal with technical instrumental prowess. Notable acts include UNEXPECT, EPHEL DUATH and VIRUS.


Post Metal

Post metal arose following the subsequent emergence of numerous newer, grittier metal genres like sludge, stoner, doom, and drone in the late 80's and early 90's, as well as the budding post-rock scene that emerged in the early 90's in Europe and North America. The scene's origins can be heard in several distinctly like-minded, moderately experimental groups in the early 90's, ranging from the noisy grind of GODFLESH, the sludgy, melodic, sometimes punk-like riffs of the MELVINS, and the proggy time signatures and grungy riffing of TOOL or HELMET, to the textural work of DON CABALLERO and the more melodic moments of early BARK PSYCHOSIS.

Arguably the first true and definitive realizations of post-metal emerged in the mid 1990's. The most concrete example was NEUROSIS, who moved farther away from their crust-punk origins and into more atmospheric territories with releases like Souls at Zero and Through Silver in Blood, the latter album in particular being regarded as one of the most definitive releases in the genre even to this day for its revolutionary blend of dark, spanning atmosphere and massively heavy sludge, something that would later come to define the post-metal genre as a whole (indeed, post-metal is often called "atmospheric sludge" as well). It wouldn't be until the early 2000's, however, that the genre's capacity would be fully realized, with releases like ISIS's "Oceanic", CULT OF LUNA's "Salvation", and PELICAN's "Australasia" paving the way for a true scene to emerge, and post-metal has since become a widespread phenomenon that has captivated the attention of many adventurous listeners worldwide.

Post-metal's unique sound is often very long and extremely drawn-out, utilizing oft-repetitive and simple riffs and guitar texturing to create massive buildups and musical climaxes. At times very emotionally evocative, it can be equally soft and soothing as it can be massively dense and crushing. Vocals are used sparingly, if at all (instrumental post-metal is a popular genre, with groups like PELICAN and RUSSIAN CIRCLES even achieving some degree of mainstream credibility), and when they are, they're usually gruff and barked as opposed to growled or screamed, a signature trait of the genre's hardcore roots.

Variations of Post-metal

While it should be noted that many post-metal bands have their roots in sludge metal, there are many post-metal bands that are rooted in other genres of metal. While post-sludge was an almost uniquely American phenomenon, a number of European doom-influenced post-metal bands have risen to fame, namely groups like ANATHEMA, YEAR OF NO LIGHT and CALLISTO; their slow-churning riffs and depressing mood of doom metal fit very well into the post-metal formula. These groups later gave way to more western post-doom-metal projects like JESU, GIANT SQUID, and MINSK.

A number of post-metal bands are significantly influenced by hardcore and post-hardcore, crafting the melodic elements of modern hardcore into their own brands of textural and atmospheric post-metal. This is exemplified by groups like ROSETTA, THE OCEAN COLLECTIVE, CAVE IN, MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT and BURST.

A subgenre that has emerged to a considerable degree in the last decade is an amalgamation of post-rock and black metal. Black metal has traditionally not been a stylistic influence on post-metal over the years, but bands like ALCEST, FEN, AGALLOCH and ALTAR OF PLAGUES have used the more atmospheric qualities of black metal and the tremolo riffing and incorporated it with a shoegaze-like affinity for heavy, dreamy sounds and guitar effects to create a unique and evocative subgenre that shares many visional and sonic characteristics of post-metal. While the explosion of bands exploring this style is a rather recent phenomenon, there are some instances of this occurring very early in the lifespan of the post-metal genre as a whole. ULVER's debut could be seen as possibly the first album to fall under this definition. For clarification's sake, these post-rock influenced bands are placed in the post-metal subsection of ProgArchives as opposed to the black metal subsection of Tech/Extreme because they eschew much of the harsh tonalities, minor modes, and shrieking vocals of black metal and add a melodic and emotional aspect that makes it much more accessible than their progressive black metal peers in the tech/extreme section.

Today, the most popular post-metal groups are much of the genre's godfathers like ISIS, NEUROSIS, PELICAN, and CULT OF LUNA, though a number of newer bands have risen to fame in metal and prog circles within the last 5 years like INTRONAUT, ROSETTA, and THE OCEAN COLLECTIVE.

Scenario IV: Dread Dreams
Sigh Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Scenario IV by Sigh might be better entitled "Hail Horror Hail II", since it's largely a continuation of the general approach of that album, with extensive shifts of musical style and approach mid-composition being a regular occurrence. With a range of extreme metal styles and non-metal styles, as well as sections combining the two (there's bits which recall some of the more "black 'n' roll" segments of Hail Horror Hail, for instance), it's certainly as diverse an album as its predecessor, though the transitions here seem more abrupt and arbitrary than on that album.

It's still a very solid release, mind - "not as good as Hail Horror Hail" still leaves room to be very, very good indeed.

Alba - Les Ombres Errantes
Hypno5e Experimental/Post Metal

Review by mitarai_panda

4 stars Hypno5e is an experimental/post metal band from Montpellier, France, established in 2003. Their music is considered to be all-in-one with the visual arts, because the band's personnel are also professionals in the film industry. Their idea is to combine sound and space imagination, give it an abstract meaning, and make music technical and Deep emotions come together, and albums are mostly concept albums. The theme is the interpretation of life. During the band's performance, video and movies are often projected to show the power of image and music. Since 2007, four albums have been released. This year's new "Alba - Les Ombres Errantes" has a full 75 minutes long, which is actually a complete soundtrack for the band's guitarist. Listening to the opening song does not have any metallic taste. Instead, it is folk and psychedelic, some pf, but the English in French sounds awkward. It only shows the heavy side until the end. Because it is a film soundtrack, there will be many narrations and dialogues in the songs (returning back to French). I think this will affect musicality to a certain extent, but there is no way to do it. In addition, some of the melody of folk music, plus most of them are solo acoustic guitar, so it seems to have a small fresh flavor and exotic style, and the voice of the lead singer is also very open (reverberation use much?), In other words, some of the experimental sound effects show that they are different. I think if you remove these monologues, you can have four stars. At present, between Samsung's half and four stars, you can hear it.

Jesu Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Justin Broadrick of Godflesh and (briefly, in one of their earliest lineups) Napalm Death fame offers up the debut album of Jesu, a drone metal project exploring the sonic territory that lurks between industrial metal and a bank of overworked vacuum cleaners. Fat, doomy riffs keep things varied, but the underlying drone never ceases, it merely evolves and grumbles as it is passed from instrument to instrument. Shoegazey influences creep in here and there, particularly in the vocals, though to be honest I consider them the weakest aspect of the album. (Of all the sonic features of shoegaze you could seek to imitate, I'd say the customary shoegaze vocal style should be at the bottom of the list - it was endearing in its original context but is just irritating outside of it.)

Superheat (Live Album)
The Gathering Experimental/Post Metal

Review by thwok

4 stars Like our fellow reviewer Bonnek, I'm not much of a fan of live albums. Check out his fine review of Superheat on this site, by the way. For me, the primary benefit of a live concert is the way the band interacts with the audience. Otherwise, I'd rather listen to the studio album. This live album goes a long way towards overcoming my bias.

Anneke Van Giersbergen is a terrific live performer, beyond her obvious singing skills. Check out their other concerts on Youtube, or better yet buy a DVD. The enthusiasm she brings to "On Most Surfaces" here is particularly outstanding. THE GATHERING just seem energized in these concerts from their homeland. As other reviewers have mentioned, the rhythm section of Hugo and Hans drives the music to new heights. The band sounds like they drank a bunch of Red Bull before they went on stage. I hope they make a habit out of it!

Hail Horror Hail
Sigh Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

5 stars An early masterpiece from Sigh finds them shifting from the straight-ahead black metal of their early releases into what you might describe as symphonic black metal style - but only if the symphony in question were composed by Mr. Bungle or something. The opening title track almost resembles a hybrid power-thrash metal piece, with only the shrieked vocals keeping us anchored in black metal territory, and then the rest of the album takes us on a delirious tour de force, with moods ranging from the manic (like in the enigmatic 42 49) to the epic (like album centrepiece The Dead Sing, which conjures a landscape where "even the dead CRY FOR HELP!").

If you want find the spot where Sigh definitively stepped away from the second wave Norwegian black metal forces they'd been allied with in their early years and became their own unique channel of chaos and nightmare into the world, then Hail Horror Hail is where it all happens. Give it several listens, because you won't unpack everything in this movie for your ears right away.

Sol Niger Within
Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Luqueasaur

5 stars What is this relentless, chaotic and beyond-comprehension avant-metal?: 9/10

MESHUGGAH's dj000nt master FREDRIK THORDENDAL lets loose his inner demon (not like he already doesn't do it on Messhugah) and showcases his extreme guitar wizardry with some of the craziest experiments and techniques and pitches and melodies there is to do with a guitar.

While on MESHUGGAH his guitar is vicious and his riffs are neutron-star dense, on SPECIAL DEFECTS Fredrik's style is experimental as if he's testing how far he can go with his instrument's electronic sonic capabilities. Would it be far- fetched to call him the modern JIMI HENDRIX and SOL NIGER WITHIN metal's response to Woodstock's Star Spangled Banner? Possibly, but then again not even Hendrix would be bold enough to create such a manic, rhythmical and complex (and sciency) release, so they're pretty even when it comes to ingenuity.

While I must admit in some moments it feels rather dragging and isn't on my accomplished cats list, SOL NIGER WITHIN is, in most parts, what I expect from avant-metal: the unexpected, creativity, complexity; well done and without corny weirdness-for-the-sake-of-weirdness. And some damn sweet guitar solos, too.

The Painter's Palette
Ephel Duath Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Luqueasaur

5 stars Not jazz, not metal, but both: 9/10

EPHEL DUATH (name probably inspired by Lord of the Rings' eponymous mountain range) has for a long time been mostly a duo that made blackish experimental metal. It's rather surprising to find out that in the band's second release, THE PAINTER'S PALETTE, not only they feature many more members, but they're also distinctively different from everything they've done thus far.

An exquisite mixture of SiktH-inspired mathcore moments and jazzy interludes with delicate solos accompanied by spectacular drumming, there's little to say about this other than "wow, I wasn't expecting that to work out alright", followed by some well-deserved headbanging. And boy it does! It does, because EPHEL DUATH's members are all accomplished musicians able to output some quality stuff from both sides of the spectre (metal and jazz). Now, to claim they've "amalgamed" aforementioned genres would be an overstatement and pretty much a blatant lie. The mathcore moments are starkly separated from the fusion interludes. What makes this work out alright, along with the quality of their work, is how they're able to smoothly transition from one moment to another.

And what's there to say about the drummer? Get ready to listen to some of metal (and jazz!)'s finest patterns and catchiest rhythms. He's not super technical and fancy nor crude and straightforward, he's -as I see it - a damn fine jazz drummer who was called to this weird metal band to do what he does best, jazz-drum.

Absolutely recommended for experimental/avant-garde/different metal fans, or for people who're CRAVING for some of that mythical "jazz metal" - so loudly spoken about but so hardly witnessed.

Office Of Strategic Influence
OSI Experimental/Post Metal

Review by MaxnEmmy

4 stars This group consists of Fates Warning members and special guests that put out a really good debut recording which only gets better with repeated listening sessions. I like the satirical approach they take to government and current state of affairs, as they comment on the media and the masses. OSI has released some very strong albums over the years but I find this one to be their strongest and best. They strive to make music that makes you think, which like Rush is the hallmark of great progressive rock. All the OSI catalogue is worth checking out but I would definitely start with this one.

Heliocentric
The Ocean Experimental/Post Metal

Review by javajeff

4 stars I just started listening to The Ocean, and I am thoroughly enjoying the catalog of albums. Heliocentric is the least heavy album from the group, but it follows a more traditional progressive metal path rather than the extreme nature of the other releases. I absolutely love their top albums that mix extreme metal, metalcore, and progressive rock. However, Heliocentric has superb songwriting wrapped in a nice, neat, metaphysical box. It is an underrated release, and one that should be revisited and reviewed on it's own merit. Like other albums, it has excellent musicianship and stellar mastering that makes the bass and drums pop. Anyone not familiar with them would feel right at home if they are fans of Between The Buried and Me, another band I love. This is great stuff, and highly recommended.

Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs
Orphaned Land Experimental/Post Metal

Review by ale73

4 stars Ok for sure "Mabool" was their most inspired album and it is impossible to reach the same peak of inspiration. Ok the loss of Yossi Sassi is not an Easy one. But the new Orphaned Land opus is a compendium of everything good in life: you cancellare find prof,metal, clean voice, some growl, female voice, ethnic music, areal orchestra, Steve Hackett, Hansi KŁrsch, Tomas Lindberg, belly dancers...and in the limited edition even Steven Wilson and a cover of Jeremy! Furthermore, Orphaned Land deserve to be respected even as men other than as musicians, for their efforts in spreading their message of peace everywhere. p

This album is more intricate than "All is one" and a little bit more metal and prog oriented, but less heavy than their old records. What is astonishing is that they have reached the perfect integration of their two main elements: rock (in different shapes) and orientale music. Every note is in Italy place, and the orchestral parts are played by a real orchestra. Being a long and articulate album you can undestand why it took vive years to realize it. The lyrics are well really important and the whole concept is explained by Kobi Farhi in the first page of the wonderful booklet: it is a reflection on the history of humanity, revolutions and great men who fought for freedom. p

It is difficult to talk about single songs because all the record is a continuum that flows without week moments, merging perfectly all the different elements,withan extraordinary elegance. The only tracks where the influence of the guest is really marked are "Like Orpheus" with its power metal flavour and "Only the dead have seen the end of the war", the most death metal oriented one, maybe reminiscent of their beginning. p
