lets stir this up...
there are three bands floating somewhere around that level for me:
Crippled Black Phoenix (sounds like mix of pink floyd, nadja and godspeed you! black emperor while being original)
and newer Current 93 (neofolk - never fails to make me gasp at it's freakness)
there are songs like Freezing Moon, Creep and Whiter Shade of Pale ... but these are usually exceptions
not to mention J. S. Bach, who is few levels above.
... and talking about music - Ludwig van Beethoven will always be the ultimate god
// but according to last.fm MaSu took the most of my time compared to rest of musical world (excuse for my suicidal tendencies
(such as mocking a band on it's forum))
