* VideoGame/{{Fallout|1}}, epically with the songs composed by Mark Morgan, notably in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxdODzKtCVc City of the Dead]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5RsgMo_i3A Vats of Goo]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDhhT5_4gIk Industrial Junk]]. Likewise for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lN9mKZ_UJM Gold Slouch]] from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}''.
** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has a number of original drone ambient tracks, such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH71FoCpwHo Garden of Evil (Dungeon 6)]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jii0CrIxj1k Boys & Ghouls (Dungeon 8)]](especially disturbing when heard in the Divide), as well as reusing many from the first two games.

* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' features drone ambient which is pretty akin to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aubrey_Hodges Aubrey Hodges']] soundtrack for the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation Playstation]] port of [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Franchise/Doom Doom]].

* An unintentional example is the Level 3 music in "Lollipops" from ''{{Action 52}}''. Listening to it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHMOorKpIKM in a ROM utility]] is scary enough, but that's nothing compared to how it sounds in-game ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx6UdhbDKTc skip to 3:17]]).

Added DiffLines:

* The AMBER headset in ''VideoGame/AmberJourneysBeyond'' does this by the low hum it emits while you're wearing it, and given that it enables you to not only see and hear where ghosts are, but also [[AstralProjection project your mind into them]], it fits this trope well.

* BlackMetal performer Echtra used this a lot on his first solo album. His later albums used drone, too, but usually with the intention of creating a trance-like meditative state rather than creating an atmosphere of dread.

His later albums used drone, too, but usually with the intention of creating a trance-like meditative state rather than creating an atmosphere of dread. These albums also no longer resemble BlackMetal, and arguably can't be characterised as metal at all ({{ambient}} is probably a better categorisation of most of their content, though there are still a few intense passages on some of them).

* A lot on ''Frances the Mute'' by Music/TheMarsVolta, most prevalent on "Miranda That Ghost Just Isn't Holy Anymore". The title track, not actually included on the album, uses the trope even more prominently.

* Folk/avant-garde project Giles Corey also has used this both to create a sense of unease (on the SelfTitledAlbum) and to create a state of trance (on ''Deconstructionist'', in whose liner notes doing this was explicitly stated as being a specific goal of the album; the album also uses binaural beats and other techniques with this in mind).
