    Mono
    Capricorns
    Mouth Of The Architect
    Overmars
    Riverside
    Neurosis
    Cult of luna
    Una Corda
    Plus all the ones mentioned so far

    Edit:
    Almost forgot to mention Jesu!

    And a special mention goes to Rosetta for there recent album, The Galilean Satellites, this two CD album contains one disc of Isis like music, which is extremely good, and another disc of light instrumental music. The two discs are synched up so you can play them together, which sounds incredible!

    YES! As good as "How Strange, Innocence" is, the other two are superior, especially their last one, "The Earth is not a Cold, Dead Place." I suggest you work your way up to it...trust me, you won't be sorry! If you liked Pelican's newest, you'll LOVE Explosions' newest...to me, it sounds like Pelican borrowed a few things from EITS.

    The ones I mentioned range from sparse use of vocals to none at all, except for neurosis' newer stuff.
