I know what you are thinking. Teamster came out from under to showcase another one of his favorite 2016 post-metal releases. Yes, I am guilty. I have a personal obligation here at Metal Storm to present the best post-metal albums I can find. The genre as whole lurks pretty much unsolicited on this site. Thankfully 2016 has been a great year for post-metal and the zenith is Mouth Of The Architect's latest release, Path Of Eight.

Holy shit. I love the production. The clean vocals are something different. I am thoroughly impressed.

This will probably end up being my 2016 AOTY. Yes, it's that good.

It's certainly expansive in its exploration of styles, and a surprising twist after their latest. Unfortunately I don't find it as engaging as you seem to do. I think it pales it comparison with Ortega's for example. Not bad at all though.

I don't know that band yet, but seeing 7.8 I'm sure I'm gonna love it because I don't trust MS ratings anymore

I didn't really know the band that well, but I had heard the two previous albums. I actually revisited them after listening to this just to check that this was as big a change in approach as I thought. Turns out, it is actually pretty damn different, and it's good, this is a really distinctive sound they've now got going on.
