Order of the Vulture - Order of the Vulture


Blackened thrashy crust. evil as fuck.

Swans - Swans are Dead

At one time, Swans was notorious for live performances so intense that members of the audience would vomit. Though Swans have changed much since those days, they have only increased the musical intensity of their on stage performance and this live album proves it.

Thou - Tyrant


Heavy, dark, beautiful doom sludge that defys expectations. The unconventional creative surges is what makes this truly stand out amongst boring contemporary sludge bands.

Contravene - A Call to Action


Epic anarcho metal punk with a heavy dose of peace punk influence.

The Dead Boys - Young Loud and Snotty


The best description for this album is literally it's title.

Bauhaus - Mask


Lame artwork, but one of the best goth albums. A mix of piercing death rock and soaring pop melodies.

Satanic Warmaster - Carelian Satanist Madness


Lyrics are unfortunately sketchy as fuck but you'll be hard pressed to find better black metal albums.

SL'S3 - Con la Venda Hacia la Pared


Melodic, beautiful, emotional punk from spain.

The Jesus and Mary Chain - Psycho Candy


Distortion dripping, fuzzed out post-punk pop. Unfortunately subsequent releases get cleaned up and overproduced.

Teen Cthulhu - Ride the Blade


Ethereal keyboards shroud blackened power violence. Very tongue in cheek song titles.

Nux Vomica - Asleep in the Ashes


Incredibly epic, dark and artistic crust metal. Long, so listen with patience. It will all be worth it.

Dystopia - The Aftermath


One of if not the greatest sludge band ever. Brooding, eerie guitar effects. Distraught screams of agony criticizing modern society. heavy. as. fuck.

Burzum - Filosofem


Varg is an asshole but no one can deny that Burzum is too fucking good.

Jedi Mind Tricks - Violent by Design


Personal favorite Hip Hop album. Aggressive, dark, with songs that seamlessly flow into one another.

Ekkaia - Manos Que Estrechan Planes De Muerte Y Sometimiento


So many neocrust bands just wish they could be Ekkaia.

Wake Up on Fire - Wake Up on Fire


Innovative and very influential sludge. Almost all of the members went on to form Nux Vomica.

Lurker of Challice - Lurker of Challice


Wrest's best work. Hauntingly beautiful, gothic, droning USBM.

The Spectacle - Rope or Guillotine


Inspiring emotional hardcore punk from norway.

Weakling - Dead as Dreams


one of the greatest USBM albums. Guitarist also in The Gault, Asunder, and now Dispirit.
