Bandcamp Blowout: Best Albums For Around $5 Or Less


There are a lot of great albums out there, but that doesn't mean A) your wallet has to suffer or B) you need to resort to stealing. This list is here to both provide you with some excellent music for cheap and also help these bands make a few bucks in the process. If you are particularly into black (mostly of the atmospheric variety), sludge, and/or doom; you might be best suited just going through the collection related to my site, Metaltrenches.com, here or THIS GUY'S COLLECTION.

I'm freaking addicted. Bought like 50 albums in the past few months. But with some of them at only a dollar or two, you can't go wrong. I don't think I've spent over $8 for any single album.

Lascaille's Shroud has all their albums as name your price, their album "Interval 02: Parallel Infinities, The Abscinded Universe" was nominated for best Extreme Progressive Metal Album in 2014 and placed 7th in votes. I think it would be a good addition to this list.

Here's one that recently became free since they signed to Season of Mist: Barishi.

Some kind of extreme prog/black hybrid...not sure what to call it.

Saw that you bought it last night in my Bandcamp feed. Glad you liked it! Hoping for an album soon since they signed to Season of Mist recently.

Edit: quote from SoM website: "We are currently nearing completion of writing our second full-length record and are very excited to start work in the studio."
