* HellIsThatNoise: the ''Alien'' album's last song is a twelve-minute endurance test of how much electronic sounding noise and guitar feedback you can take. It's completely unsettling due to its very grinding and schizophrenic sounding last three minutes. (It also has a repeated, and rather unsettling, Morse code phrase underneath most of it).

** The screaming woman that's heard at the start of "Black Devil". She sounds like she's either writhing in agony, absolutely terrified or both.

** The intro to "Juular" in ''The Retinal Circus'' starts with Devin snarking at his "evil self," ending with "But if (the Devil) is really set on running me over with a train...tell him to ''BRING IT!''" followed by a sudden crash into the song's opening

* HeartwarmingMoments: A minor one, but Ziltoid keeping a picture of himself with his wife and child on his desk in ''ZTV 2'' is pretty sweet.
** So much of his solo work is full of these:
*** "Universal Flame" from ''Z2'' finishes with a truly inspiring verse.
--> ''Though you feel you're far gone\\
Never to love again\\
Remember to have faith now\\
The sun will rise again!''
** From the same album, "Before We Die".
--> ''You shall be always with me\\
You'll be the light that guided me through\\
And we may see each other soon\\
This is not goodbye...''

** His [[https://youtu.be/mtrHjuzmfww?t=2h56s conversation]] with his "evil self" in The Retinal Circus. It's just a head floating in a black space.

** "S.Y.L" from Strapping Young Lad's debut album ''Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing". It starts with a rather cute sounding child telling a story about a bear eating children and suddenly gets overtaken by an eerie droning followed by loud metallic banging until we hear electric sounds accomponied by Devin screaming as loud as he can. The first verse is particularly chilling, not helped by Devin's aggressive, raspy vocals.
