    serious question, from someone who's band gets called 'math rock' by europeans: what makes math rock "math rock"?

    on this last european tour, we really noticed, more than at other times, how eager bands are to be classified as "math rock" or "noise rock" or whatever. the band name never stands alone on a flyer. always, ALWAYS with a classification. it's like people don't try to start bands, they try to start EMO ROCK bands or NOISE ROCK bands. we thought it was weird.

    Math rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Math rock is a rhythmically complex, guitar-based style of experimental rock music[1] that emerged in the late 1980s. It is characterized by complex, atypical rhythmic structures (including irregular stopping and starting), angular melodies, and dissonant chords.[2]

    A closely-related genre is post-rock, into which some of the same bands are classified; post-rock, however, tends to feature a "jazzier" drumming style. As well, the dissonance common to many math rock bands is not as common in the post-rock genre (though it is still very present in some of the music).

    Hey guys...
    I just wanted to start a thread (my first on this board...) to share some good bands with you...
    I'm not really discussing about the definition of math rock, but for a foreigner, a clear classification could be usefull sometimes.
    I think there is a lot of great bands in UK actually, not very famous yet.
    It's why i've put some links .
    It's really influenced by all the chigago scene, and I would like to know if you have still bands of that kind in Us actually..;
