I absolutely LOVE Pelican.  That's really, really good stuff.

Found this on Spotify, a Dutch band called Kong who have been on the go since the early 1990s. Their Wikipedia entry is here

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kong_%28band%29

 

which describes them as heavy metal, electronica and industrial. I would say they are early heavy math rock. The early album Phlegm sounds raw and very dynamic

and they have released an album after a long gap

which is superb. Prog Archives calls them 'Tech/extreme prog metal' but in their overview of the band admit they are hard to define.

 

"The best way to describe this band is a mixture of ideas from electronic and experimental music fused with progressive metal. An all instrumental band, Kong are able to create various sounds and moods, not unlike some post rock. Kong often has segments where the band is playing entirely separate from one another, yet the sound works. Eclectic is a word that comes to mind when listening to this band."

 

So I am not going to get hung up in genre definitions and would just say that if you like Math rock or Post rock, these guys are well worth a listen.

Welsh band Truckers of Husk. Lively, eclectic and really rather joyous.

Glad you are finding new music to enjoy. Two other recommendations are English band Talons and the album Commemorations. The opening track is a cracker, even though it rips off Led Zeppelin's riffs from Kashmir!

and one of my absolute favourites, And So I Watch You From Afar from Northern Ireland, who are IMO math/metal at its very best.

This is one of the very best You Tube videos I have seen...

That's how I first got into math rock, thanks to this thread. I've come a long way since then, but I'm glad to see that album come up again:)

Ive actually been into ASIWYFA for a bit now. Easily one of my favorite bands. Their self titled album (the one in your post) is a 10/10 for me, but their new album is almost equally good.

I just recently got into Post-Rock and am smitten by this ethereal, emotionally driven music.  I usually spend an hour daily just exploring new bands and releases.  Here are some of my recent favorites:

  • Collapse Under The Empire
  • Damascus
  • Sleepmakeswaves
  • Mogwai
  • Anathema
  • Administration Shock Him
  • Dead Can Dance ....of course!

Anybody know of a good math(core?) band, im not up with all the terms but love the double bass pedals, quick melodies, and heavy breakdowns of hardcore bands like Veil of Maya, Suicide Silence, Whitechapel and the likes but im not into the roaring and screaming. And not into any vocals for the most part.

Really loving the synth that they use. Brings a new and unexpected look at the post rock genre. Thx for the recommendation!

For those who like the heavier stuff...   Deliciously sludgy and distorted

The closest I can think of are more math than core, Adebisi Shank and ASIWYFA from Ireland, That ******* Tank from Wales and Don Caballero from the USA. You could also try Grails, but they are maybe a bit too slow for you.

 

EDIT - having just listened to Stooges recommendation of 5ive, I would try that as well, excellent stuff.
