Yob made an album last year that was top-3 for me. Absolute top-notch epic depressive doom metal.

Matt Stevenson, Bonglestar, Archaeli
The Cave, Chapel Hill
Matt Stevenson might be better known locally as the drummer for the epic space-metal band MAKE, but he recently released a great solo album of beat-driven electronica that could even be termed, gasp, danceable in spots.

Swans, Little Annie
Cat's Cradle, Carrboro
All of the things that make Swans records so intense are all the same things that make their shows so utterly magical.

Peter is getting ready to take Bloodsoaked on one last European tour, but apparently after that, he's pulling the plug on his long-running classic oldschool Death Metal band. This is your last local chance to see them, in fact.
