The first Pelican EP and perhaps Australasia as well. The track "Drought" taken from that is a monster of riffing proportions.


Their following releases are still instrumental, but move further into post-rock space (so not as heavy, but often more shrill, spacy and melodic) influenced by the likes of Godspeed You Black Emperor!
I saw Pelican in 2007…that was a great year for gigs.

You may also like 5ive's Continuum Research Project's first album (when they were called 5ive…not to be confused with the boy band!) That's very fuzzy, meandering, psychedelic and muffly - the riffs can be quite indistinct at times, but it's quite nice I think! They also did a cover of Pink Floyd's "Set the controls for the heart of the sun" which is fantastic. (as heard on "The Hemophiliac Dream")

More traditional metal instrumental approach but with a doomy edge:
Serpent Throne (Try White Winter Black Summer)

My last recommendation would have to be Holland's Toner Low - and man, do they have a sweet tone. (I and II)
Stay doomed!
Diddledy high,
Diddledy low,
Come brave blood sheep,
You've a goodly way to go.
