Back in 2011, NYC-based metal blog MetalSucks released a pair of free "NYC Sucks" compilations that featured music by small-to-midsized area bands. (You can find Volume 1 here and Volume 2 here.) Some of the featured bands went on to great things while others fizzled, but together, the two comps remain a telling snapshot of the heavy music landscape in the city at the time.

Three years down the line, MetalSucks have released the first of two more NYC Sucks comps. Unsurprisingly, NYC Sucks Volume 3 features a lot of bands that we've covered here on BV -- Primitive Weapons, Sannhet, So Hideous, Natur, Tidal Arms & Car Bomb all come to mind. It includes some under-the-radar gems, too (Black Table, Ruine, etc.) You can stream the full thing and check out the track listing below, or you can download it for free here.

Some of these bands have upcoming local shows, too. So Hideous are appearing at Saint Vitus tonight (3/31) with Abigail Williams and fellow locals Cryptodira; Natur are hitting Black Bear Bar (formerly Public Assembly) on April 11 in support of old-guard UK metallers Satan on their first North American tour; and Sannhet will be supporting Yamantaka // Sonic Titan at their upcoming Baby's All Right show on 4/13, along with Odonis Odonis.

Stream the full NYC Sucks Volume 3 below...
