I've seen Kekal's Audible Minority album labeled as post metal. I'm not big into the genre and I've never heard the album so I can't attest to that being true. I do like Kekal's earlier albums Acidity and the Habit of Fire which are fairly avant-garde but not "post" anything.

Not post metal really but love the last Hands album "Give Me Rest." It's a bit more post hardcore not too far from My Epic "Yet" but Hands is much heavier. Shane's vocals tend to border on death metal and has that space that "post" material does with a healthy dose of doomy, thundering riffs mixed in.

Post hardcore is a different than just post metal right?

Post metal is usually referring to long slow-paced metal, sometimes largely instrumental.  Kind of a merger of doom, stoner, and metalcore, but drawn way out and usually not adhering to traditional song structures.  Bands like Neurosis, Pelican, Isis, Minsk, Cult of Luna, Russian Circles, etc.

I'd say Hands is probably the closest Christian equivalent I've heard.

For post-rock, though, which is the same sort of thing but with folk/psych/ambient sounds and vocals instead of metal elements, I'd recommend The Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus.  One of the best out there.

Perfect description.

I honestly feel like the term post metal was invented because of Neurosis. I remember in the early/mid-90's when they put out Enemy of the Sun and Through Silver and Blood people had no idea what to call them. Metalheads were very divided on them as well, where some lauded their material as revolutionary and enthralling and others boring, monotonous, pointless. They went out on tour with Pantera (who were huge at this point!) in the late 90's and that crowd didn't know what to do with them. Critics loved them it seemed but I actually don't remember any friends or people I knew who saw that tour that enjoyed the band at the time. No one could label it. It was called metal, it certainly didn't sound like Pantera! People were confused.

Fast forward a few years to when Isis and Cult of Luna came on and I think people said, "Well... I guess it's a genre. Now what do we call it?" Not sure where Post-metal came from but that's what people started calling it.

It's like Voivod, except their sound never became a genre. To this day people just say, "Nobody sounds like Voivod."

As for Hands, their 1st (Sounds of the Earth) and 3rd (Give Me Rest) albums have the most resemblance. Creator is too "in your face" for the label. Funny that these days they are actually on Metal Archives. 5-6 years ago when I found them they weren't listed. What's the label? "Post metal."

As you know, Leonov is great.   Cool

You *probably* already know Epta Astera which could be described as black/post-metal with Gregorian chants.

I really like this album from The Anna&ChenBiao (now called Shekhinah).  They have a few other albums too.

And their other band you may like too:

I actually prefer post-post metal ... metal played by bands long after people were saying metal was dead and gone.
