Overlooked name-your-price Bandcamp albums

I've seen a lot of free/name-your-price Bandcamp lists here on Sputnik, but with the exception of 1, I've never seen these great albums mentioned before.
1Stiu Nu Stiu
Ultra Silvam


I've been trying to get Sputnik to notice this for so long. one of my favorite albums of last year, this is a supergroup consisting of members of Jeniferever, Promise and the Monster, and The Search. it's a mesmerizingly dark mixture of post-punk, gothic rock, shoegaze and even sludge metal. the album was mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge) and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna).

2Vitamin X
Full Scale Assault


fierce, thrashy hardcore punk produced by Steve Albini and featuring album art by John Dyer Baizley. what's not to love?

4Double Echo
Phantomime


solid gothic rock/post-punk that really captures the 80s vibes, from the production to the artwork. it's not particularly original and the vocals are kind of buried in the mix, but it's still worth checking out.

5Holicus
Saeculum


very Opeth-esque progressive metal from Canada, boasting artwork by Travis Smith (Opeth, Katatonia, Death) and a mix by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Soilwork).

6Holicus
Regret and Absent Mind


also features artwork by Travis Smith, but this time the mix was provided by none other than the legendary Dan Swanö (Edge of Sanity, Bloodbath, Nightingale).

7No Fealty
They Love the Soil Which Makes Their Graves


crushing, crusty hardcore from Denmark. their previous album got some coverage here on Sputnik, but this new album (EP?) seems to have flown under the radar.
