Arche's crusty NYP van returns

God I hope this doesn't break on posting. Hope you guys find something to like on here!
1Anagnorisis
Beyond All Light


Shit-off-a-shovel black metal: http://music.anagnorisis.com/album/beyond-all-light
2Anchoress
Anchoress is Ruining My Life


Really neat metalcore/post-hardcore. Vocals are a smidge unique but pretty easy to get used to: https://anchoress.bandcamp.com/album/anchoress-is-ruining-my-life
3Armenian Institute of Dance and Folklore
Armenia


You know those mornings when you wake up and want some Armenian folk music to dance to? Wish granted. There's Bulgarian and Greek ones too, but this is my favourite: https://yaledog.bandcamp.com/album/armenia
4Arrows In Her
It Tired Me All The Same


Twinkly emo for twinkly times: https://brokenworldmedia.bandcamp.com/album/it-tired-me-all-the-same
5Astralia
Atlas


Spanish post-rock. I mean, you already have a reasonable idea how this is gonna sound but it's still really good stuff - https://astralia.bandcamp.com/album/atlas
6Bike Path
Blonde + Blue


St. Louis emo/post-hardcore. Some of this is better than other bits, but the bits that are good are really, really good - https://bikepath.bandcamp.com/track/blonde-blue
7Black Tomb
Black Tomb


Filthy doom riffs and equally filthy vocals. Great fun if nowt else - https://blacktomb.bandcamp.com/album/black-tomb
8Chepang
Lathi Charge


Check my review for (a bit more) info, but basically Nepalese grindcore that tears faces - https://nervealtar.bandcamp.com/album/lathi-charge
9Dirtwire
Dirtwire


Really cool folky, trip-hoppy stuff. Can't remember who introduced me to this, but thanks! - https://dirtwiremusic.bandcamp.com/album/dirtwire
10Funeralbloom
Petals


Furious blackgaze. Not a colossal amount stands out, but it's really solid stuff nevertheless - https://funeralbloom.bandcamp.com/
11Gleemer
Moving Away


I think this has some shoegaze influence but tbh I don't really know. Really nice, fuzzy rock/post-grunge/gaze/whatever - https://gleemer.bandcamp.com/album/moving-away
12Hyponic
Forwarder


Cool funeral doom/drone/psych-y stuff from Hong Kong. Google Translate tells me the title translates to 'Forwarder' but if anybody speaks fluent Cantonese and wants to tell me otherwise, I'm all ears. - https://hyponic.bandcamp.com/album/-
13Ithaca
Narrow The Way


Awesome little mathy emotional hardcore EP - https://ithacauk.bandcamp.com/album/narrow-the-way-2
14Itto
Itto


Awesome little mathy emotional hardcore EP [2]. Check out Pursuant as well, got released earlier this year - https://ittochicago.bandcamp.com/album/itt-2
15Hikrahe
Lily (The Wilt)


Really nice glitchy/downtempo stuff (I dunno tbh) from Pots, I believe - https://solarmasscollective.bandcamp.com/album/lily-the-wilt
16Maneskjold
Kometen Kommer


If you like Hawkwind, you'll like this. Read my convoluted, round-about review on it for possibly a bit more info - https://maneskjold.bandcamp.com/album/kometen-kommer
17Marietta
As It Were


Perhaps not the most original on this list, but As It Were is some great twinkly emo - https://whereismarietta.bandcamp.com/album/as-it-were
18messFX
Motherboard


I'm not gonna embarrass myself by guessing the genre, but MercuryToHell's electronic project keeps improving with every release - https://messfx.bandcamp.com/
19Myotonia
Myotonia


Thanks to Mort for getting me on this unhinged, gloriously aggy piece of hardcore - https://myotonia.bandcamp.com/album/myotonia
20Nature Trails
In Glass


Coldwave, 80s worship from Melbourne, Australia. Faithful but no less great - https://naturetrails.bandcamp.com/album/in-glass
21Nionde Plågan
Frustration


A kinda screamo/hardcore/post-metal behemoth, this is rapidly becoming one of my favourite albums from 2015 - https://niondeplagan.bandcamp.com/album/frustration
22Omega Massif
Geisterstadt


Given I've been listening to this for probably 6 years now, I can't believe it's not been on one of my lists yet. Really, really great instrumental post-metal, probably one of the finest of its kind - https://omegamassif.bandcamp.com/releases
23['selva]
eléo


While its name is clearly designed to make the listener hate everything, this blend of black metal and hardcore is, basically, nuts. One to strap yourself in for - https://selvapbs.bandcamp.com/
24Shrine Of Insanabilis
Disciples Of The Void


Really good example of the vaguely occult end of the black metal spectrum. Riffs excellently, not solely relying on immemorable tremolo picks (and tbh, even the tremolo-picked sections here are catchy) - https://wtcproductions.bandcamp.com/album/disciples-of-the-void
25Silent Whale Becomes a Dream
Architeuthis


One 16 minute song, I put this on here as it's a great example of sad, shimmering post-rock. - https://silentwhale.bandcamp.com/album/architeuthis
26Tauusk
Hunter


Requires A LOT of time (stretching over 2 hours), but really interesting droney metal. insomniac's review tells it way better - http://tauusk.bandcamp.com/album/hunter
27The Psyke Project
Daikini


I reviewed Guillotine back in the summer, but I'll be damned if this doesn't absolutely destroy as well. Sludgey, hardcore, pissed-off goodness - https://thepsykeproject.bandcamp.com/album/daikini-full-album-captured-vinyl-sound-2005
28The Wayward
Plutonic


Weird stuff. Still taking this one in, but it's kinda bouncy noise rock/grind/experimental stuff I guess. Their moniker is somewhat fitting, really - https://nervealtar.bandcamp.com/album/plutonic
29Viva Belgrado
Ulises


So I only found out today these guys have a new one out. Haven't listened yet, but Flores, Carne is a wonderful, wonderful screamo album and I'm sure this will be equally as amazing - https://vivabelgrado.bandcamp.com/album/ulises
30Witch of the Waste
Made Of Teeth


Blackened hardcore with an emphasis on the hardcore (for once!) - https://witchofthewaste.bandcamp.com/album/made-of-teeth
31Garroted
In the Court of Nyarlathotep


Thanks to pissbore for getting me on this one. Blackened death with excellent, EXCELLENT vocals - https://garroted1.bandcamp.com/releases
