However, no-one seems to have mentioned the (in my mind) undisputed kings of this genre. Despite the fact that they themseves might be more inclined to descibe their stuff as 'post rock infused psychedelic metal', they belong on anyone's track list:
A mate bought me their Panopticon album last year for my birthday and we both went to see them live at the man Fiddler a while ago. This is the best album in any genre that I've heard for years. Scarily good.
They toured with Mogwai a while ago and also managed to blow the rig at All Tomorrows Parties and still managed to come back from it (after it was fixed) and convert the entire place to their (wall of) sound.
