So, I am becoming very interested in the post rock/metal genre ever since I heard Part the Second. I also enjoy the album by the Pax Cecilia. So I think that I am at the tip of the iceberg that leads to the center of the earth (probably a post rock band name Tongue) Since every journey needs a beginning, I would like some recomendations of some post rock/metal bands. If it helps, the ones I know of are Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the Pax Cecilia, and that Icelandic one with the fetus on one of their albums.

Side question: What is the difference between post rock and math rock?

Post Rock and Math Rock and completely different genres. You'll get to know Math Rock better after hearing a few bands, it has an unmistakable sound:







Now, back to Post Rock...

Part the Second is not Post Metal Gods damnit!!Angry At least half the bands in Exp/Post Metal are there under Experimental and have nothing to do with Post Metal, maudlin of the Well being one of them.
 
Anyway, I cant help much with Post Rock, but as far as Post Metal goes try these:
Isis- Wavering Radient, Panoptican
Cult of Luna- Salvation, Somwhere Along the Highway, Eternal Kingdom
Minsk- Embers
Neurosis- Through Silver in Blood
*Shels- Sea of the Dying Dhow
Pelican- The Fire in our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw
Cancer Conspiracy- Omega
 
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

Samples sound awesome, so what are some of the major names I should know (what are the bands that I should really look for, or ones that I should avoid)? This question is more opinionated, of course.

For math rock all I can say is Don Caballero.

For post rock, heck there's always this post I had in a thread awhile ago...

Maybeshewill - is really great, the song here on PA is quite good.
And So I Watch You From Afar -  AWESOME is a suitable description, a little more Math Rock-y though.
If you haven't already heard it, () by Sigur Rós is one of my favorite albums.
Mogwai - Happy Songs for Happy People.

My post rock journey ended about 3 minutes after it started.  Not good.  But good luck to you finding whatever creams your twinkie.
