I just recently purchased Wake/lift by Rosetta and Giant Squids Metridium Fields.   Both of these albums are great !  And i plan to get their other albums. So for all the Post Metalers out their who do you prefer?

I usually don't compare bands or rather my affection for bands, but I'll say that the music of Giant Squid seems to have a deeper effect on me on a whole and I seem to enjoy their releases more, particularly the wonderful Metridium Field album. But Rosetta does create music I like a lot, particularly in Wake/Lift

tough call... both are excellent but peeter out towards the end... Metridium fields the song is irrelevant in my book and so is temet nosce
i guess giant squid's album is a bigger achievement, though, even if i find Rosetta more visceral, so i go with them

I couldnt get into wake/lift as much, then again I never really tried ultra hard to get into it. Red toothe in claw is a killer song though!
