Post Rock Post – Seeress

This is third Post Rock Post that has emerged from A Thousand Arms dropping their latest compilation two weeks ago and I don’t think we’re even half way through them. There are plenty of more bands I’d like so shine a more specific light on; we’ll get there. For now, we have what is perhaps the most important name in this list of newly discovered (for me) post rock and metal bands: Seeress. As if the track on the compilation, “Attractor’, which opens their latest album wasn’t enough, the text on the release itself reeled me right in. It works marvelously with the grandiose sound of the band, giving the vibe chilling context.  Let’s head on over the jump for a listen, a read and then, a discussion.

Post Rock Post: A Thousand Arms Are Back With “Open Language Vol.II”

A while ago on the blog, we were acquainted with a label/printer/collective called A Thousand Arms. We heard of them via a compilation they released, containing post rock tracks from all over the world. That was then; this is now. Since that time, they’ve released another compilation, much heavier and more oriented towards post and black metal, collaborated with us to create our first run of blog t-shirts (more on that, hopefully, very soon) and geared up work with this year’s Dunk! Festival. Now, never seeming to rest for too long, A Thousand Arms have released Open Language Vol.II. The first part focuses on post-rock bands exclusively from the US, while the second brings you tracks and bands from all over the world. We thought we’d give you a little primer for this insane amount of free music. Oh yeah, didn’t we mention? It’s all completely free!
