Prog Reviewer
4 stars It will surprise few to learn that director Danny Boyle was listening to a lot of Godspeed You Black Emperor when putting together his arthouse zombie film 28 Days Later, because Godspeed have a uniquely morose and doom-laden sound in post-rock reminiscent of decaying, uninhabited, post-human extinction wastelands. Along with Scotland's Mogwai, Godspeed pioneered a "found footage" approach to post-rock, embellishing their compositions with sonic extracts from field recordings (or band-produced conversations engineered to appear like field recordings), against which their band-orchestra rumbles along with occasional outbursts of thunder like an angry stormcloud. This is the way the world ends: not with a bang, but a Black Emperor.
