Today Is The Day - In The Eyes Of God

This album is a hellish mash-up of grind, hardcore, industrial, and sludge influences, creating one disturbing/heavy listen. Features Steve Austin's (real name) deranged vox and Mastodon members Kelliher and Dailor. Lemme just say Dailor rips it up harder on this album alone than with any other band he's played with.

goin to hell

No Security - When The Gist Is Sucked From The Fruit Of Welfare...

No Security is probably one of the most criminally overlooked bands of the Swedish crust/d-beat genre. This comp basically sums up what they were: pissed-off hardcore with some obvious old school death metal influence thrown in for good measure.

Bastard Noise & The Endless Blockade - The Red LIst

Honestly I haven't even listened to the Endless Blockade side yet but holy fuckin shit Bastard Noise's side is fuckin heavy as fuck. Fuck.

edit: This just in, the Endless Blockade side rules, too, sans the pointless 15-min closer that's just microwave popcorn noise.

Njiqahdda - Taegnuub: Ishnji Angma

Disregard the megahomo romance novel album art, this is some of the best atmospheric black metal out there. Njiqahdda combine shoegaze-ish noise, swirling psychedelia, and epic songwriting to create incredibly dense black metal. Also good if you like vox that sound like a constant stream of white noise.
