* All of the ''Strapping Young Lad'' albums are this to Creator/DevinTownsend's solo work. Although some of Devin's solo albums can be considered dark based on their lyrical content and heaviness. Physicist and Deconstruction are heavier compared to others and their lyrics are darker. Ocean Machine's lyrical themes revolve around Life, Death, Isolation, etc. Ki for it's moody atmosphere. And Ghost 2 will appear to have more in common with Ki in terms of atmosphere rather than the original Ghost, which was Devin's attempt at LighterAndSofter.

* A Romantic era example: compare Music/PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky's somewhat syrupy ''Romeo and Juliet'' ballet suite to ''Sergei Prokofiev'''s rather darker take on the story.

* Of all the Seattle [[Main/{{Grunge}}|grunge]]-era bands, Music/AliceInChains were this compared to the [[Music/{{Nirvana}}|other]] [[Music/PearlJam|three]] [[Music/{{Soundgarden}}|bands]] from the "Big 4", with a lot of their music arguably qualifying as DoomMetal. But this trope even applies to the band's discography, as they got ''much'' heavier with each release; the vocalist's previous band Alice 'n' Chainz was pure GlamRock in the vein of Music/Poison. The first incarnation of the current Alice in Chains was GlamMetal in the vein of Music/GunsNRoses, and their debut album ''Facelift'' took it even further, with a much heavier sound clearly in HeavyMetal territory, but still very glam. The album that followed, 1992's ''Dirt'', was a far bigger transition, with the music being their first attempts at doom metal and the lyrics focused on war, death, depression and ''especially'' heroin addiction. Their 1995 self titled album took this trope UpToEleven, being easily one of the darkest, most depressing albums ever released into mainstream. The band's latest material has still kept the tradition going.

* Music/TheJonasBrothers, who were sponsored by Creator/TheDisneyChannel, made their career singing clean and chaste love songs aimed at young girls. After they [[DeaderThanDisco faded into obscurity]], Music/NickJonas and Music/JoeJonas started careers of their own. Nick became an RAndB star and Joe formed DNCE, a disco-funk-pop band. While not really darker sonically, lyrically they're much more explicit. With obvious sexual themes and swearing throughout, they've separated themselves from the Jonas Brothers in more ways than one since splitting from Disney.

* Rappers who were actual criminals fit this trope to the core. They will scare you straight outta crime. Not just those who are flashy and claim to be criminals, but real criminals who still killed while they made music -- Schoolly D and Eazy-E are the best examples. As if "bro"-hating wasn't already a part of the black culture (as it is white culture, though with white racists out of bigotry).

Not just those who are flashy and claim to be criminals, but real criminals who still killed while they made music -- Schoolly D and Eazy-E are the best examples. Because of their past, the subject matter of their works are very dark and serious compared to most other rappers.

*** Music/DeLaSoul also went through this, except its transition was MUCH more sudden

sudden.



* Rappers who were actual criminals fit this trope to the core. They will scare you straight outta crime. And I don't mean those who are flashy and claim to be crimnials.
