Post-Rock Diamonds - Secreta Musica Compilation Vol. 2

Album: Post-Rock Diamonds - Secreta Musica Compilation Vol. 2
Compiled by: Hail and Alximistis
Year: 2008

Post-Rock is a genre of alternative rock characterized by the use of musical instruments commonly associated with rock music, but using rhythms, harmonies, melodies, timbre and chord progressions that are not found in rock tradition. Simply put, it is the use of 'rock instrumentation' for non-rock purposes. Practitioners of the genre's style typically produce instrumental music.

The post-rock sound incorporates characteristics from a variety of musical genres, including ambient, jazz, electronica, and experimental. The traditional method of power chords is replaced with timbre and texture for guitar-play while the song and voice is abandoned by its ambience.
