Post-black Metal

Post-black metal is a subgenre of black metal that emphasizes more experimentation and creative expression than other forms, as well as molding different music genres into black metal. Bands such as Deafheaven,[5]Alcest,[5]Liturgy, Deathspell Omega, and Altar of Plagues[5] are notable bands in this genre.

Although post-black metal has existed in previous years with black metal bands adding experimental elements to their sound, the genre came to prominence in recent years through the rise of the internet.[6] One of the most influential albums of post-black metal was Deafheaven's Sunbather.[7]Blackgaze has been a prominent form of post-black metal in the modern age, although there are still post-black metal bands that are not blackgaze.


Post-black metal emphasizes the focus on non-traditional elements of black metal,[8] as opposed to the tradionalist ideals and straightforwardness of black metal. Some bands, like Wolves in the Throne Room experiment with elements of drone and dark ambient.[9]
