Alright ya'll, I need some heavy, droney, reverb-into-your-soul, vocal-less music for nighttime stretching/meditation (really).

Genres that typically fit the bill are post-rock/post-metal, but happy to explore others. I like it when it grows/crescendos throughout the song(s).

Bonus points if they're on or otherwise easily acquirable in good quality downloads.

Boost welcome!

@Greg Do you put Isis, Pelican, Rosetta etc under that post-rock/post-metal umbrella?

@Greg Do you know Long Distance Calling? Not all of their Songs are instrumental, but you might want to check out Avoid the Light and Invisible Giants.

@Greg explosions in the sky. Esp "the earth is not a cold dead place"

@keverets they, and Do Make Say Think, got me into this genre oh so long ago. :)

@Greg first thing that comes to mind is Explosions in the Sky.

@jos they, and Do Make Say Think, got me into this genre oh so long ago. :)

@Greg I went to high school with some of the DMST cats! Ha! I can't believe i left off Godspeed You! Black Emperor as an option too.

@jos niiiice, I really enjoyed their albums back in college.

@Greg give this a shot:

Communion
by Black Walls — blackwalls.bandcamp.com/album/

It's a few years old, but sounds like what you're looking for. I think this was the artist's last audio release*. He's an illustrator now.

*: apart from maybe a single of the carol "Gabriel's Message" done in a dronecore style

@Greg check out C418 on bandcamp - just listen to the non-Minecraft stuff eg „One“ or „Excursions“. Although the Minecraft OSTs are also pretty good.

@Greg depends on how heavy you need. Not so heavy: My Sleeping Karma, Toundra, Electric Moon. Heavier: Belzebong, Earthless.

Maybe Les Rallizes Denudes "Heavier than a Death in the Family", but at night it may crush your soul.

@Greg you're welcome. Earthless I think are from your part of the world. Hope all is well with you & yours

@philbarker same to you. All are healthy here, the boys are growing a lot lately (and together, which is great)!

@Greg Excuse the self promotion, but my last release ticks some of those boxes:

benofbrown.bandcamp.com/album/

Might not be heavy enough, but give it a try.

@Greg bohren and der club of gore isn't on bandcamp but they tend to really hit the spot youtube.com/watch?v=pkw2kcQ5Lz

deathprod is on bandcamp and this album is one of my all time favs: deathprod.bandcamp.com/album/m
