I don’t know most of these:

BUT, The Burial, was the best band I came across this year! Awesome! The Taking of Flesh is a great album, and the band is super talented with mad skills. I got to see them here in OKC with Becoming the Archetype. Great night of musical bliss and great meeting the band members.

Not my list. Listener discretion advised.
