Arise!


The founding fathers of the metal/punk/lack of hygiene combination that would be known as Crust. Absolutely essential, even if you only have a passing interest in the genre, or even in punk in general.
2Discharge
Why


Many don't consider them strictly crust, but they helped pioneer the metallic riffs and scuzzy production that became associated with our dreadlocked buddies, as well as directly influencing countless bands throughout the years. Why and Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing both deserve your immediate attention.
3Nausea
Extinction


Another one of the most identifiable crust bands, these NYC squatters proved to be one of the most consistently good crust bands in their heyday. With a thrashy, metallic sound and a degree of technicality not usually seen in Crust, they proved to have major crossover appeal to the metal community. If you want to start listening to this genre, start here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gp_Mnvwb32g
4Aus-Rotten
The System Works...For Them


The title track is one of the greatest anthems of all time, and the only crust song my brother can get into. He likes melodies and shit. pffft. Another major player in the crust game, as well as one of the more well known bands in the punk community. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MekxX-y8dnQ
5Behind Enemy Lines
Know Your Enemy (Reissue)


This band rose from the ashes of Aus-Rotten in 2000, playing a slightly more polished style of their predecessors signature brand of hardcore/crust. Another good starting point for the genre. It actually sounds like it was recorded in a studio rather than the basement of some squat. The jury's out on whether that's a good thing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lhvWLjfAq0
6AntiSchism
Still Life


Like Nausea, this band features dual male/female vocals, and a spastic hardcore sound with little of the metal influence that was Nausea's trademark. This was a favorite of mine a few years ago. I had to sell the vinyl when I was short on rent money earlier this year :'( Felt like losing a bit of my childhood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSQHQQ2yvWQ
7Civil Disobedience
In A Few Hours Of Madness


Oddly, this band got me into crust. I was 15 at the time and I'd just bought a turntable at a yard sale. A couple weeks later I found this 7" in a used record store. It's still one of my most treasured records, even though I don't listen to it much anymore. Also the version of this on youtube is fucked up, the lead guitar isn't audible for some reason. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdHX7wCPAbU
8Alpinist
Minus.Mensch


Screamo tinged crust from Germany with a lot of dissonance and some great melodic moments. One of the better active bands around. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TS79oCH-PLA
9Fall Of Efrafa
Owsla


This band's style eventually evolved into Post-Metal, but on Owsla they play titanic crust tunes, with some very well placed cello. God damn that cello still gives me chills. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWYR9WuAuhU
10 Kreigshog
Kreigshog


Japanese crust. Their vocalist likes shrieking his lungs out and being homeless. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IcAVD6LG44
11Anti-Product
The Deafening Silence Of Grinding Gears


Feminist, male-female fronted crust band that has quite a bit of melody for a bunch of crusties. Another of my early favorites. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NnqBC01rcQ
12Warcollapse
Divine Intoxication


Crust as fuck band from Sweden. If you can't get into this, this genre's not for you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj0scPrKl1g
13Disrupt
Unrest


Dual vocals n blastbeats. Unrest deserves a higher rating than 3.7 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyPe-18QM6o
14Anti Cimex
Anti Cimex


Another of the old school Crust/D-Beat groups that managed to survive into the 90s which doesn't happen much in this genre. Most bands are lucky to record a 7" before disbanding.
15Skarp
Requiem


Crusty grindcore with a female vocalist. Or maybe crusty grindcore. or grindy crustcore. It's awesome anyway. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ip5BC3nl1P0
16Man Is The Bastard
Thoughtless


Crusty Powerviolence from California, the home of about 90% of crusty powerviolence bands. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=punb3i4bPWA
17La Casa Fantom
Ingen ny dag


Epic crust from Spain. Just started listening to this band. Thanks to Alachlahol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhJ-1APfWik
18Martyrdod
In Extremis


Thrashy crust, again from Sweden. Swedes are pissed apparently.
19Ictus
Imperivm


This song is one of the high points in any kind of music. 39 minutes of some of the greatest crust/hardcore ever written. If you've written this genre off as being an untalented underproduced thrash metal ripoff, I urge you to try this out. You won't be disappointed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_J4fgB_RHs
20Axegrinder
Rise Of The Serpent Men


Metallic Crust with some symphonic elements.
21Oroku
Living Through The End OF Time


Whoever added this band fucked up the album name. Male-female vocals, sludge elements and a motherfucking cello. I'd put this band in strong competition with Fall Of Efrafa. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2Xz2tDTjgI
22G.I.S.M.
Detestation


Japanese band that was extremely important to the scene. One of the first Japanese crust bands in existence. Fucking classic http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBHQkO4S_XU
23From Ashes Rise
Nightmares


Melodic Crust/hardcore from Tennessee. Not one of my favorites but Nightmares is a quality release. Dual vocals are always good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rImYK4fuzzo
24Assembly Of God
Submission Obedience Denial


One of the countless crust bands that released and EP then faded into obscurity. Submission Obedience Denial is worth any crusties time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0UF2fuuvo4
25 His Hero Is Gone
Monument To Thieves


Influential southern crust band, another of the heavy hitters in the genre. Crust and sludge are like two filthy cousins at a family reunion under the bridge, so it would only be natural for them to produce offspring. But instead of having like 12 toes and shit their child turned out to be fucking brilliant. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GCCUveWL_I
26League Of Struggle
The Nature Of The Pig Is Greed


Almost halfway done and I'm struggling. Obscure crust band that's worth a listen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRNYEZLAmxc
27Teen Cthulu
Ride The Blade


Crusty Black Metal band. I like em more for the name than anything else, although they have some very good moments. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nugeou17YL8
28Dystopia
Dystopia


One of the most savage, misanthropic, miserable groups to ever record music. God damn, I love 'em. When a song opens with a series of suicide anecdotes, you know you're in for a good time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agjf_QK4I9o
29Electro Hippies
Play Fast Or Die


Old school crust/powerviolence that took a more experimental bent than most of their peers. Another of the old school hall of famers
30Crustina Aguilera
Crushing The Imperialist Machine


Greatest band name of all time. Released an excellent demo and disappeared forever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojzhLGNrMJ8
31Extreme Noise Terror
A Holocaust in Your Head


Another band that blurs the lines between crust and grind. Formed in 1985 in Ipswich, England. Not the greatest band on this list but still influential and worth a listen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLMfoj-DuZU
32Stormcrow
Enslaved In Darkness


Crusty Death Metal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfx-XPisix8
33Decrepit
Tired Of Licking Blood From A Spoon


Heavy as shit metallic crust that brings mad riffs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSPBr-nAnpQ
34Ekkaia
Manos Que Estrechan Planes De Muerte Y Sometimient


Screamo tinged crust from Spain with a lot of variety and some impressive technicality. There's a lot of emotion in this album. The cool thing about crust is that it doesn't fucking matter what language it's in because you'll never decipher the lyrics anyway. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3i7X-2yBR8
35Skitsystem
Stigmata


Fuck Umlauts. This band disbanded in 2007. They made some heavy ass music. Blastbeats all over. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7ZImofKk3s
36Doom (UK)
War Crimes (Inhuman Beings)


One of the finest UK crust albums there is. Oppressive atmosphere, furiously savage vocals, breakneck riffs and a fucking creepy intro all make for an excellent album. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlRimTjHamI
37Iskra
Iskra


Pissed off Canadians. Dissonant riffs and a touch of black metal. Maple syrup and poutine is what makes the vocalist sound so fucked up.
38Fleas And Lice
Global Destruction


Hardcore/Crust from the netherlands. Fairly well known amongst the punx. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuvSYwuko1w
39Dropdead
1st LP


Insane Crust/Powerviolence group. Unjustified Murder slays http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNqj-zRbJY4
40Icons of Filth
Onward Christian Soldiers


English Anarcho/Crust band from back in the 80s. The vocalist died from a heart attack back in 04 and the band has been disbanded since. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0rawSBaUbI
41Tragedy
Vengeance


One of the most well known crust bands in recent years and with good reason. The more accessible child of His Hero Is Gone, they're still going strong despite some weak recent releases. Vengeance is a modern classic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEw6kQ-Jtf4
42Antisect
Out From The Void


Quality 80s thrash/crust in the vein of Antisect. Criminally underrated on this site. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VItBb5Oij3g
43Disfear
Live The Storm


One of the most enduring and consistent D-beat bands around, with some of the greatest vocals in the genre. Live The Storm is a testament to the enduring quality of this band and is probably their finest release. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG0wt2YSclo
44Filth
Live The Chaos EP


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1jBVTNfJbE
45Blacken The Skies
Blacken The Skies


Needs more love and deserves attention. This song alone has enough variety in 3 minutes to keep anyone interested http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GewaytfN0wQ
46Bombenalarm
Buried Alive


German Crust band. Nothing really to say that can't be said about other crust bands. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBvcgYK0ZYo
47Leper
End Progress


yes, there's ska in this. No, it's not much. Regardless, this is another great crust release you should check out. Bonus for female vocals. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psqhueYujVo
48Appalachian Terror Unit
It's Far From Fucking Over


West Virginia group with a great female vocalist. They all have hard dicks for the environment. Thrashy crust. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-iPkO7IxN4
49Nuclear Death Terror
Nuclear Death Terror
