New Finds Of 08

Bands that I was introduced to or bands I had heard of but never listened to until this past year.
1Century
Black Ocean


Read the review on this sputnik and enjoyed this one quite thoroughly. Not completely original but enough fun to stay fresh.
2Made out of Babies
The Ruiner


Another one I checked out thanks to a review here. Julie Christmas has a funny name and a great voice.
3Intronaut
Void


Haven't heard many bands like this. Their song structures are very weird and there really isn't any catchiness to the music but is quite interesting to listen to. Still haven't listened to their new record yet.
4Botch
We Are the Romans


This cd is incredible I don't believe I've heard an album that can match this one. The pacing, music and overall musicianship is outstanding. Complicated structures and riffing make this one worth the listen.
5Converge
Jane Doe


Initially this was very hard to get into thanks to Bannon and his ear shredding vocals but once you get past it it's pretty close to Botch in greatness. Similar to Botch but somewhat of a different direction.
6Kylesa
Time Will Fuse Its Worth


A sludge filled rampage that is all about the riffs. They are able to move from driving fuzzed out riffs to psychedelic passages with ease.
7Oxbow
An Evil Heat


Honestly one of the weirdest records I have ever heard. Creepy, intense and downright unsettling almost constantly but always brilliant.
8One Day As a Lion
One Day As A Lion [EP]


Zach finally emerges from obscurity and with some help on the drums produces a great EP not sounding tired or preachy like he was beginning to at the end of Rage. His singing doesn't quite work but there isn't much so it barely detracts from the experience.
9Burst
Origo


Origo was introduction to these guys and I am glad I was turned on to this. They are incredibly dynamic and every song is spectacular. Lazarus Bird is easily one of the best releases of '08 and Prey on Life is very good as well.
10Neurosis
The Eye of Every Storm


First turned on to them because I was told they are similar to Isis but I could never get into their style. After finally catching the stylistic method they use it reveals a dense, haunting experience that few of their followers can match. I still prefer Isis but these guys are right behind them.
