Post-metal or whatever has been around for much longer than I thought. Seeing reviews and listening to albums from over a decade ago opened my eyes to a genre I once thought was a modern trend, much like the rise of "blackgaze". After finding this out, and listening to Alaskan's new sophomore album, Despair, Erosion, Loss, I've learned that even with existing for over 10 years, this genre still isn't dull or stagnant.

Rating: 7 Been listening to a lot of sludge / post albums lately, so I'm starting to get that same shit syndrome from several bands, but this was quite good.

so I'm starting to get that same shit syndrome from several bands

BitterCold calles it "SSDB" - short for "Same Shit Different Band" - and it's a perfect description. Post is my favorite genre, as you know, and when I put suggestions here I try to make sure the band/album stands out. It's really hard now, innovation and originality is getting hard to find but on the same token if a band does it well, even if it's copied/cloned, that's ok too. Here are 2 suggestions. One is very original and the other is an Isis clone but done extremely well.

Vaura - The Missing
From Beneath Billows - Monolith

Rating: 7 This is unfortunately a major step-down from their previous works. This is kind of generic, whereas their EP and debut are much more interesting.
