Hi. I'm looking for (mostly lofi and underground) bands/albums which can be viewed as "so bad they're good", like... Those which you listen for the first time and think "what the hell is this crap" and then keep listening because it has something that drags your ears to it, it could be because albeit horribly produced it has something original, or albeit not serious at all at the end it has some pretty good songwriting. Anything goes.

To mention some examples, take the recently mentioned Xynfonica records stuff
Or also that heavy metal band, Damien Storm...

I want to emphasize I'm not looking for the latest big four of thrash album "duh it wasn't so good as the others but it was pretty good" kind of thing. That doesn't count. I want the "bad" side to be very audible. Therefore i'm imposing it has at least to be underground. Also lofi is a plus.

Any albums/bands on that line?

Do the words Heavy Metal mean anything to you other than buttcore, technical progressive assgrind or the like?

Early Ildjarn is definitely not for everyone. It's so crass, abrasive, and can literally hurt your ears to listen to. But it isn't without its charm.

Satanic Warmaster - Nachzehrer

Terrible production but the melodies always draw me back to that Album.

Regarding Xynfonica, there's another project on the same record company, called Shevlareq. Check out their album Tournament at Constantinople. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fi5Tr0GVaw Crazy guitar solos, sitars, tablas and lyrics based off of epic poetry.
