I hate their name; I hate that word! The band isn't bad though. Not my thing, but I have nothing against them. Prog? I don't think so. At least from what I remember of them.

You guys are on the right track.  I don't think anybody here quite realizes yet that these bands are classified as "brutal prog".  Hella, Lightning Bolt, Upsilon Acrux, Orthrelm... all these bands are progressively-influenced.  Zeuhl, RIO, Canterbury... these bands are twisted modern versions of classic prog groups and are definitely prog.

By the way.  Zach Hill of Hella... possibly my favorite drummer.  His work on the album Hold Your Horse Is is perhaps the most awe-inspiring drumming I've ever heard.  Hella is extremely demanding music to play drums too and he's all over the place and can dig up really funky stuff throughout all those patterns.  And he uses one pedal!

Hella is most definitely progressive.

It is criminal that they haven't been added yet.

I would suggest RIO or Experimental/post-rock

Orthrelm have absolutely nothing to do with prog.  Drawing maybe 10-15 rhythmic patterns out over 45+ minutes does not make you prog.  It's experimental and must have taken quite a bit of technical skill, but if we're including them, why not countless other minimalist artists who do exactly the same thing (albeit probably not in a metal setting)?

nice! lets get these place on the right track! more post metal and math rock, less neo-garbage

EDIT: umm, they shouldnt be in post rock... let's have a petition to make mth rock a new prog section on the main page please.

yes they are experimental, but post rock is becoming too popular to associate with non-post rock bands.

They're often classified as post-rock, that's how I discovered them.

Oh, well excuse me for not having the deep intellectual capacity to put that statement together.  If "it's final" then we'd better just ignore how they're commonly classified all throughout the internet.

i listen to a sh*tload of post rock, it is mostly ambient with some heavy tendencies, influenced by Can, classical music etc.

hella is math/noise rock

Ohh, I thought you were refering to Don Caballero (who Jody had just said were added under post-rock in the post prior to yours about how "alright, this place is getting back on track").  I agree that Hella aren't post-rock, sorry for the miscommunication.

don caballero still isn't post rock, but they do have ambeint-esque attributes, so i won't argue it.

Maybe math rock? Ahleuchatistas and Blind Idiot God definetely belong thee too. Orthrelm's last album is minimalistic but the previous don't repeat patterns for more than 10 seconds.

 

Brutal prog are The Flying Luttenbachers. They rule.
