* HeavyMithril: Albeit it's for cosmic horror instead of fantasy, but this still applies. The first two tracks on ''Physical Illucinations in the Sewer of Xuchilbara'' even sample dialogue from ''VideoGame/SilentHill3''.

The band's music, lyrics, and artwork are inspired heavily by the ''VideoGame/SilentHill'' series of video games; their demo and first album also included references to Creator/HPLovecraft and Creator/StephenKing. The Axis present themselves as a hellish psychiatric hospital of sorts, with their albums as "treatments" and listeners as "patients".

* SpokenWordInMusic: Mostly on ''Urfe'', but every album has some.

* SpokenWordInMusic: Mostly on ''Urfe'', but every album has some. ''Urfe'' in particular has been compared to a radio play by many listeners, as it consists largely of narration of the story with dark ambient/industrial musical backing, with some additional creepy sound effects thrown in throughout.

* BedlamHouse: Where much of the band's story takes place.



* [[spoiler: DownerEnding / GainaxEnding: At the end of "Awakenings" off of ''Tenements'', Urfe's AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence results with the complete corruption of the world, or ''something'' like it]].

* EpicRocking: Only natural for a fusion of black metal and ambient music. A pretty good chunk of their tracks are upwards of 10 minutes long.



* [[spoiler: GainaxEnding: The ending of ''Tenements''. As Urfe AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, it implies his SanitySlippage and corruption ''itself'' will corrupt the world]].

Added DiffLines:

* PsychologicalHorror: True to its ''Silent Hill'' inspiration, the band's storyline is this with a healthy dose of SurrealHorror and CosmicHorror.

* ShoutOut: In addition to the obvious ''Franchise/SilentHill'' and Creator/HPLovecraft references in their work, they stuck "Cygnus X-1" into the title of one of the tracks on their demo when they reissued it on cassette. This is presumably a reference to a saga by Music/{{Rush}} (specifically, from ''Music/AFarewellToKings'' and ''Music/{{Hemispheres}}'').

There is also an actual black hole by this name, but it's difficult to imagine the band weren't aware of the Rush songs.
