Then, in the 2000's bands such as Music/{{Mogwai}}, Music/GodspeedYouBlackEmperor, and Music/ExplosionsInTheSky helped expand the genre even more. Then, a number of SludgeMetal bands started picking up on the genre, resulting in "post-metal" or "atmospheric sludge". Since then, the underground has been littered with PostRock bands.

Then, Around the same time, a number of SludgeMetal bands started picking up on the genre, resulting in "post-metal" or "atmospheric sludge". Since then, (Post-metal has actually been around since at least 1992, with Music/{{Neurosis}}'s [[TropeMaker trope-making effort]] ''Souls at Zero'', but experienced an explosion in popularity during the 2000s with releases like Music/{{Isis}}' ''Oceanic'' and ''Panopticon'' and Music/CultOfLuna's ''Salvation'' and ''Somewhere Along the Highway''). The genre has even been combined with BlackMetal, resulting in fusions like the works of Music/{{Alcest}} and Music/{{Deafheaven}} (whose 2013 effort ''Music/{{Sunbather}}'' became the most favourably reviewed album ''of any genre'' that year). Needless to say, the underground has been is now littered with PostRock bands.

* {{Sampling}} and SpokenWordInMusic: Perhaps due to the influence of Music/GodspeedYouBlackEmperor, these are frequent characteristics of post-rock music, as well as music influenced by the genre. Music/{{Slint}} also did a lot of the latter track.

* MetalScream: Extremely common in post-metal, and not entirely unheard of in post-rock either (Music/{{Slint}} probably started it out with the ''epic'' screams at the end of "Good Morning, Captain").

Added DiffLines:

* LimitedLyricsSong: Even if there are lyrics, they probably won't take up much of the song, or be particularly wordy. The ultimate example of this is Music/SigurRos' album ''( )'', whose eight songs all contain the exact same nonsense line as the only lyrics on the entire album.
