Examples: ISIS, Don Caballero, If These Trees Could Talk

Preferably no vocals, but I don't mind some singing/growling here and there.
Spoken word goes especially well with a lot of post-rock, so why not post-metal too?

Can't wait to listen to some great new albums!

Just picked up a Minsk album. Post-metal should be a tag here

Post metal takes many forms. While the atmospherics are common (assuming we’re not talking about post-thrash or hardcore), the music can be grounded in sludge, black, doom or hm/prog metal. All have a different vibe, like the difference between prog death or progressive black. That’s why we place them under the individual buckets. As for instrumental post-metal, I’d need to think about it. One that springs to mind is Rosetta, a band that remind me of Russian Circles in some ways.

Post-metal generally speaking is seen as an alternative name for atmospheric sludge metal so in that sense we do have it here already (Sludge used to be named Sludge/Post-Metal) but as Chris points out, not all post-metal has anything to do with sludge. 

As far as black metal goes, post-black metal is just another name for atmospheric black metal, and is sometimes used interchangeably with blackgaze. In my view the three terms are used incredibly inconsistently which, especially in the case of atmospheric black metal and post-black metal, results in a lot of misunderstanding on these terms. To me, post-black metal should mean the atmospheric black metal bands who draw on post-rock and/or sludge metal while actual atmospheric black metal should be the bands using the more traditional ambient sound.
