I managed to beat all the DLC bosses on my first try except Artorias. Even still, all their combos and super aggressiveness made me feel like I was getting my ass handed to me by Ornstein and Smough again, except in a single boss.

Nice job. When I first played the DLC I was on NG+7, and it took me over 20 attempts to beat Manus. Probably the most difficult (along with Kalameet) and enjoyable fight in the game.

Fuck Kalameet. Apparently I forgot to get him the first play through so I had to fight him NG+ and dedicate myself to getting THAT FUCKING TAIL!! I could have killed him 20 times over but noooooo, he just has to keep his precious tail away from my pointy stick. >.>

I broke a controller because of him

He's a complete bastard in NG+7; I died in 2 hits even with armour that had the most defence in the game. I don't know how many times I got him down to 1/4 of his HP and for him to do some ridiculous attack that would kill me instantly... 

I was never able to cut off his tail.

Armor stats are never really useful in Dark Souls, looks is mainly what matters. (That and weight.) Kalameet on NG+10 and above will most likely one-shot you, yet my builds focuses around never getting hit in the first place. (Either a glass-cannon or a light strength build.) So I've never had that much problem with bosses unless they were amazingly fast. That being said, Kalameet is a annoyance regardless of stats and NGs if you plan on taking his tail.

Did you kindle the bonfire in the caves? Because I managed to beat him my first try after using up about 7 flasks

the one on the cell? if not then maybe one little bone fire eluded me and that could have made the fight easier but still i had trouble with him becuase of his dark abyss magic...it hurt a lot XD

No, it's impossible to miss that bonfire since it is literally in a narrow corridor leading into the caves. Use crest shield and make liberal use of rolling to get away from/ block the magic
