GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR

Canadian outfit from Montreal whose cerebral post-rock doesn't so much form songs as create an all-engulfing mood that threatens to hold unsuspecting audiences hostage. The band is perhaps best known for their lengthy instrumental songs and large membership. With nine semi-permanent members, they create prolonged tracks which utilise short movements, wide volume changes, and numerous recorded and sampled sounds.
