    Aluk Todolo

    They are a French side project of the members of a black metal band called Diamatregon.

    My favorite album is Descension, but the self titled ep is great as is the newest album Finsternis.

    So these guys are described as "experimental black metal" but i don't hear anything reminiscent of black metal other than a general darkness about their music. it's a little drone-y, very rhythmic and very captivating. There is also a definite taste of Krautrock in there. Maybe like an evil version of Can or Faust or something.

    Highly recommended.

    Slint- "Spiderland"

    These guys are often said to be one of the progenitors of post-rock. When this album came out, it was like nothing I'd ever heard before. The only thing I'd heard that was close was "Careful With That Axe Eugene" by Pink Floyd.

    Most of the Slint tunes focus on a paradigm of tension and resolution with spoken word type lyrics.

    Interestingly, the liner notes on the original release contained a bit about them looking for a female vocalist and their contact info. I guess they never found one...
