If you like them, the obvious next step is Isis (they call it the NeurISIS sound for a reason) followed by Cult of Luna and, at least in my opinion, Mouth of the Architect. If post-metal had a Four Horsemen, those would be the bands.
Post is a genre I absolutely adore, I could rap off bands for ages that I think made some incredible albums. Off the top of my head, The Ocean, Amenra, We Lost the Sea, OBSCURE SPHINX(!!!), Latitudes, Minsk, Izah, Swarm of the Sun, Adai, Blindead, Seven Nautical Miles, Old Man Gloom, Rosetta...
Yes! I'm a fan too, but not as versed beyond the basics. I'd put my essentials as follows-:
Neurosis-*Through Silver and blood, *Enemy of the Sun, *Times of Grace, *The Eye of Every Storm, *Given to the Rising, Fires within Fires, and I'd probably skip Honor in Decay for a newcomer-I think it's their weakest-but sill a good album-definitely their most understated
Isis: *Oceanic and *Panopticon (equal in their brilliance), The Absence of Truth (pretty damn good!)
Cult of Luna: *Slavation (most essential) Beyond (brutally heavy doom/less post ), Somewhere Along the Highway, Vertikal, *Mariner (with Julie Christmas) 2016
Swans: (not metal-but mandatory listening!) *The Seer!!!! To Be Kind, Soundtracks for the Blind
Less essential-but albums I have loved:
Pelican (instrumental): Australisa, *The Fire in our Throats will Beckon the Thaw
Russian Circles (instrumental): Memorial and Guidance (2016)
(black metal with post influences):
Ash Borer-Cold of Ages
Wolves in the Throne Room-Two Hunters-sight Neurosis as a major influence
Agalloch-some post influences
And, of course so many more....I could have put Deafheaven but I don't want death threats :-)
