#9. Explosions In The Sky - The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place
Texan crescendo-wranglers EiTS and Scottish flange-junkies Mogwai are in constant contest over the title of Number One Post-Rockers. While they may be neck and neck overall, there is no disputing that Mogwai’s greatest triumphs came in the previous century, and they have never again risen to the heights they did as a ‘young team’.
The Explosions however, are the sound of the new generation. Combining rockin’ riffs, superhuman drumming, and melodies that will warm the cockles of your heart before erupting in gut-wrenching, ear-busting crescendos, EiTS are the mutes to beat, and TEINACDP is their crowning achievement.
