* [[LastNoteNightmare "Dido".]] There are chopped up vocal samples throughout the song, which aren't really creepy at all, and the song is mostly a somewhat soothing OminousMusicBoxTune that isn't really out of place for the band. However, during the last two minutes the samples become so chopped and distorted and stretched that [[HellIsThatNoise the song descends into one of the harshest, darkest, and most hellish sounds in their entire output.]]

* "Brennestein" and "Kveikur" in general. Who thought that Sigur Ros were capable of an 8 or 9 on MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness? The distorted, wailing, and off-key backing vocals and DroneOfDread [[LastNoteNightmare ending]] of "Kveikur" really drive it home.

* "Vaka" off of (). The music video even more so which depicts a dark apocalyptic landscape.

** The entirety of ''Von''. One of the reasons why it's such EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, contrasted with their signature SweetDreamsFuel. "Hún Jörð" has ''[[OutOfCharacter Jonsi]]'' doing an EvilLaugh which descends into CarefulWithThatAxe. [[CreepyChild And then there's]] [[NightmareFace the cover...]]
** "Syndir Guðs (Opinberun Frelsarans)," which translates to [[GodIsEvil "Sins of God (Revelation of the Savior)."]] The sound is extremely minimal and spacious and Jonsi is even more whispery than normal, and the whole track is accompanied by a repeating, dissonant bassline and ambient sounds and moans. It marks one of the first prominent appearances of Jonsi's bowed guitar, and his wails towards the middle of the song sound extremely pained and mournful.

The first track off of Von which wouldn't sound out of place on a Lustmord album.
