7. Severed Savior
The last CIM band on the list. Unbelievable set. I'm not a fan of tech death but these guys do it so fucking well, and they threw in a spot on cover of Suffocation's Thrones Of Blood. My favorite part of their set was how some songs would just eventually climax into what seemed like a complete wall of sound, with each musician displaying his abilities without turning the song into wank (like most tech death, imo). Hopefully they'll have a new album out sooner than later.
