Name-your-price hardcore, grind and screamo recs

20 name-your-price or free hardcore, grind and screamo recommendations that are all at least 3's. In my humble opinion, of course.
1bygones you had better be bygones
Numerics - Free with no option of payment. Band not operational any more, which is a massive shame as this is their only output. Gloriously spazzy.
2Chorea Huntington
Haunting Memory - German hardcore punk which is more simple than Lego. However, peculiarly fun to listen to.
3Pretty Mouth
The Endless Mistake - Daughters worship. Like, seriously. Good stuff though, if you like new Daughters.
4Plebeian Grandstand
Lowgazers - Fair chance you already know of this, but it's NYP which is quite frankly mad. Ridiculously good blackened hardcore.
5Inside The Beehive
Drink Bleach; Live Forever - Kinda like being hit in the bollocks repeatedly for 16 minutes or so. Spazz-grind that still feels structured, if that can ever be a thing.
6An Isle Ate Her
Phrenia - Kinda like being hit in the bollocks repeatedly for 28 minutes or so, but by a terrifying self-mutilating clown. The Desiderium EP is good to check if you like this.
что бывало - My best appromixation of this is screamo/hardcore but sometimes Nattramn contributes vocals. Nightmarish stuff.
8Passenger (CA)
Passenger - Doesn't even have an album cover. If nothing else check this out for the drumming, which is pretty nice.
Vast Knowledge Of Things That Don't Matter - Screamo EP that gets those heartstrings. Excellent stuff.
10Starting Fires
Sanctuary - Aussie hardcore that's pretty damn intense. Vocals are fantastic.
11Tarsius Tarsier
Ceremonia de Atadura de Manos - If the vocals sit well with you, then this Spanish hardcore album is non-stop raw energy from start to finish.
Thurm - Granted the physical's not out for another 5 days yet, but the digital has been up on their Bandcamp for a couple of months. Blackened hardcore with awesome-as-fvck female vocals.
13Tiny Fractures
Perfect Moments - Less than 13 minutes in length, this screamo/hardcore EP has loads in it's favour, from good production to consistently excellent vocals, and the musicianship is amazing (particularly on the second track, a 5 minute instrumental with a quite beautiful violin section).
Venomspitter - Again a fair amount likely know this from the feature this got earlier this year, but it's still name-your-price for some fantastic, aggressive, energetic powerviolence.
Emme Nae Elamaa - An acquired taste due to the long song lengths and occasionally pirate-like vocals, but when this is good, it's very, VERY good. Finnish post-rock influenced skramz.
16A City Sorrow Built
Ai - Excellent post-rock styled screamo from Indonesia. If you haven't heard this yet and have any interest in the aforementioned style whatsoever, this is definitely worth a listen.
Whenskiesaregray - Partially here as a reminder for myself to listen to this more. They continue to be absolutely brilliant lyrically with this.
Verses - Don't expect anything new to be brought to the blackened hardcore table with this one, but to the Melbourne-based group's credit it's damn well done.
19Truman (VA)
Ikebana - Emoviolence which, while not in any way perfect, is an interesting enough listen to return for future listens.
Rangka - If you like what you hear here (Singaporean screamo) then prepare to be disappointed. This is all they did. (I for one am disappointed.)
21(The) Slowest Runner (In All The World)
We, Burning Giraffes - I lied, 20 of the title genre'd albums and THIS. In the event you haven't heard this yet, this is genuinely an absolutely masterful instrumental post-rock album.
