I saw ARÜSPEX in Oakland a couple of weeks ago and it was everything I needed. Powerful, emotive, epic neocrust formed in the mold of early 2000s dark Euro hardcore. Imagine FALL OF GAIA weened on FILTH, with lead vocals that feel like they're being ripped from your own chest...and the bass player was wearing a SCHIFOSI shirt. The place where hardcore and crust and emo converge is a special place indeed, and it's really tough to pull it off without falling flat. ARÜSPEX pull it off, and I really want to see them again.
