Dionaea – Still

Still is an album by Dionaea that was self-released in 2011. The genre for this is post grind. My friend and I found it by joking about genre names, one of us said “post-grindcore” and he looked into it and found this gem.

This album is a mix of post-rock and grindcore with various other metal elements. The grind parts get very technical compared to regular grindcore. The structure is pretty nice and interesting, pretty post-rock moments that suddenly break out into instrumental grindcore, then suddenly back into post rock as if it never happened. Post-rock sections range from clean sounding stuff to fuzzy awesomeness. The post rock parts have really nice builds as well, they also have metal inspired percussion, these post-rock parts take up the majority of the album. There’s some metalcore (?) styled vocals that appear very sparingly, the album is almost entirely instrumental, but when the vocals are present they do work rather well and sound good.
