Sabbath Assembly - Restored to One
Creepy gospel hymns from The Church of the final Process reinterpreted by Jex Thoth and XTIAN of the No-Neck Blues Band. What i thought would be gimmicky and contrived turned out to be mesmerizing, and admittedly catchy.
Drunkdriver - Drunkdriver
(noise rock, hardcore)
Shame they split right as they were coming into their own. Traces of a more sludge metal--minus the monotony --sound on "Quality of My Life."

Humanbeast - Queer Marriage
Finally a marriage of analog noise, semi-danceable beats, and beautiful female vocals that works. Intense live show as well.
