I know Durero here has a 34-36 7 string guitar that's actually tuned to standard 7 string guitar B with very thin strings. Haven't heard it but he says it's super clear (of course!). Would be interesting to hear it tuned an octave lower!

Maybe we should convince him to produce a soundcloud demo :)

This is probably not what you're looking for, but godheadSilo is a two-piece with just a bassist and a drummer. They're from my hometown (Fargo, ND) and eventually got signed to Sub Pop but they're not really active anymore.

Type O Negative? And possibly Carnivore by extension?

October Rust is the main one with bass as lead, it's slightly more buried on World Coming Down and Bloody Kisses.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is The Flying Luttenbachers. They had this weird noisy album (Infection and Decline) with two basses as the only stringed instruments. I'm not sure if that was the instrumentation on their other albums or not.
