I saw The Cancer Conspiracy play in Boston in 2000, supporting Cave In for their Jupiter album launch night. TCC completely blew me away. Never has a band managed to pull off the Red era King Crimson thing as well as these guys. Their 2002 album The Audio Medium is still one of my all-time favourite rock records; the closing riff is one of the most head bangingly wonderful things I have ever heard. Ω is the album that almost never happened, as TCC split up before it's completion and it looked like it would never actually be released... but here it is, and it's now a "pay what you want" release available via Bandcamp! Essential stuff!
