Junius is a post rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. They have released two EP's: FORCING OUT THE SILENCE (2004), BLOOD IS BRIGHT (2006), a seff-titled compilation of the two EP's, and a full lenght album: THE MARTYRDOM OF THE CATASTROPHIST (2009).
Junius have shared stages with Pelican, Tombs, and Wolves in the Throne Room, among others. Junius make a perfect blend of the New Wave/Post punk sound of the 80' and Post Rock. Their music is loud, heavily layered atmospherics give an intense high-energetic impact to the eerie soundscapes. Without keeping that heavy sound they combine New Wave tendencies with spacey guitars, creating instrumental epics, dark yet powerfull.
