Emigre is a type foundry based out of Northern California. They have a bit over 60 web fonts which include Dogma, Vendetta and Vista Sans. Going through the different fonts they offer, a few caught my eye..Starting with Backspacer,

FTBac

thick circles with thin readable letters in the middle. Also thick black boxes with cones coming from the sides, again with think readable letters in the middle. Next, Matrix II is awesome.

FTMat

This typeface in bold has nice clean thick strokes with sharp serifs. The Italic is not my favorite for this typeface because it seems to me it does not fit in with the rest of the family.  One more, which is Senator.

FTSen

 

Loving the bold, blocky and black in this typeface.

There are a lot of other cool ones to check out so here’s the link: http://www.emigre.com/fonts.php
