post is a prefix in english used to denote when something occured after something else and is a direct result of the previous set of circumstances. e.g. the post-war period is used to describe the late 40s early 50s. post-black metal would mean that something occured after and as a direct result of black metal

even as a child i always liked the longer noiser parts of songs. i guess that a lot of drone and stuff that i play is an extension of that.

Yeah, I had a feeling Mr & Bowels would correct me. I still think the metal genre thing is a bit line-in-the-sand, but I'm also sure he's entirely correct. BUT. The question is whether Doom is or isn't what is actually meant by the title of the thread.

Like any genre it's important to be objective. I like some drone stuff: Earth, Phill Niblock, Tony Conrad, Sunn 0))), some Boris, etc, but like any other genre there is gonna be some bad stuff as well.

the majority of doom sounds like a development of black sabbath, i.e. slow heavy lumbering riffs, and isn't really droney, earth, sunn o))) and boris are an exception within the genre. i'm no doom expert though.

So are Sunn et al post-drone? New wave of proto black heavy metal (NWOPBM)? Drone-fi? Doomcore?

More like the natural consequence of all slowed down subgenres of metal.Drony music would be a natural side-effect of that,you just have to listen to Black Sabbath to understand.

t&b gave the linguistic explanation to my question. with that logic all black metal to surface after the term was first applied (that was probably the venom's album) could be considered as post-bm (in a way). Am I how incorrect?

Oh yeah, drone music. Drone music is the best thing since the invention of toilet paper.

And right now, we're waiting the post-freedroneforestfolk scene to happen. Only a matter of time.

Sunn0))) are "power-ambient", from what I've read.

I absolutely love drones, but I probably couldn't give a totally accurate description right off the top of my head. Most of what I listen to probably falls under the loose category of "drone-rock". On the other hand, there's a lot of academically toned drone music out there and lots of non-western classical musics, feature drones extensively.

"power-ambient" That's about the most wonderfully stupid sub-genre I've heard yet! Can there also be an "ambient-violence" movement around the corner??

Perhaps you refer to this?
Black ambient

Black ambient can be either a combination of black metal and a heavy ambient or synthesized atmosphere or an ambient / synthesized composition laced with black metal elements.
Examples of artists that play such fore mentioned music include:

"power-ambient" is apparently a term coined by the band themselves. Silly indeed, but suitable I say.

Oh yeah, drone music. If I wasn't listening to that Jesus lizard EP, you bet I'd be listening to some drone music.

He he, I probably messed up the entire thread assuming that the bands I mentioned before are referred to as "drone music" all over the world, but maybe it's just the categorization used by italian "music reporters"...

Drone music is good in small doses. If it is done too much it becomes stale and uninteresting.
