Uncommon music criticized by the common man. (Or, exercises in futility masquerading as critical thought.)

Another one that flew by my radar: Orthrelm's OV. I'm going to go out on a limb, and I don't think it's much of a stretch, and guess that this disc will be awesome. For those unfamiliar with the dynamic duo, Orthrelm play instrumental (guitar and drums) music that seems to occupy some region in the Venn diagram of music between improv and heavy metal, even though their music is actually 100% composed. Truly scorching musicianship that seems to defy human ability. Or, to put it simply, these guys fuckin' shred, man.
