Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster, named after this incident are another in the seemingly ever increasingly crowded field of post-rock/post-metal. Those familiar with my reviews over the past 15 months have seen me refer to the bands of this trend as "SSDD" Same Shit, Different Dudes. It's a bit of a shame, really, because as far as Exegesis goes, these guys are, well, good.

I have given this multiple clean and thorough listens. For post fans that need to quench a Tool and Isis thirst this is the antidote. Nothing genre bending but a worthy effort in the huge post metal pool today.

Impossible to choose between this and Whales And Aurora for best post metal album of 2012.

Certainly a debut I was thrilled with!!

Although The Shipwreck is quite good, Exogenesis is better. Well-written and quality production that reminds me so much of Isis it nearly brings a tear to my eye

For me, it lies between this, Sunpocrisy and Atoma. Although I probably enjoy this the most, I'm giving Atoma the vote, since I feel they have more to contribute to the genre.

It has all the elements that I like in Post Metal and add to that the great clean vocals but still it didn't click with me, I don't remember listening to it all at once and even though I listened to it a few times since BC's review I still find it unmemorable :\

2 and a half years on and 'Wake' is still one of the most beautiful tracks I can remember ever experiencing
