Those who hail from the Cascades should definitely check this out, and for only $5?

Apocalyptic Raids is a classic release from the Swiss mastermind that is Tom Warrior, who founded Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, and now Trypticon. This is totally fucking old-school, crushing, and of course, way ahead of it's time. There is also a Brazilian group who stole their name from this EP, and they're quite good Hellhammer worhsip. Perhaps I will post them in the future.

Electrocution were a short lived Death Metal band who started in 1990 and disbanded only a few years later just as many Death Metal bands in that time did. They are fairly unknown by most standards(most fans seem to only be at Metal Archives),but they did have a good run. Electrocution released a small collection of demos, a full length and a couple EPs. Here is their first and only full length album, Inside the Unreal! THIS IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Stormcrow are one of the heaviest, filthiest Crust bands out there today. They started in 2003 based in Oakland, California and have released one EP and a handfull of splits. One even with modern Death-Doom legends Coffins! Anyways, here is their first EP, Enslaved in Darkness.
The Wizar'd are a totally underrated traditional Doom Metal Band from southern Australia. They formed in 2004 and have released a handful of demos/ EPs, a couple of full lengths and a live album. As far as sound goes, they remind me something of a heavier more modern sounding Pagan Altar. Here's what I consider to be their best effort(you gotta love the album art, too):

P.L.F. are a Grindcore band from Houston, Texas who have been around for about 11 years now. These guys play Grind in the best way imaginable. If your not ok with strong, radical left-wing values, avoid this. Here's an Ep and their first full length.
Glass Coffin is a one man Black Metal band from somewhere in Kentucky, United States. I don't know much about this band besides the fact that the only member is also the owner of Husk Records. It's worth checking out if you don't mind extremely poor production(and that's by my standards...). Anyways, here is the first demo tape. Check it out if you enjoy this sort of thing.
