* HellIsThatNoise: The overture starting out the original 1970 album begins with an acid guitar lick with a sinister Asiatic purr (perhaps representing traditional Middle Eastern music) that can be very unsettling - even spooky - to Western listeners. And that's even before the "horror movie" synthesizer kicks in...

*** Caiaphas and Annas, oddly enough, also get this in the 2012 production. It's relatively restrained, but there are a few looks shared in quiet moments; most notably, in this production, Judas punches Caiaphas in the face in the "Damned For All Time" section of "Judas' Death", and Annas hands Caiaphas a small towelette to wipe off the blood, giving him a positively throbbing look as he does so. The height disparity (6'6'' Caiaphas v. rather diminutive Annas) and the [[RedOniBlueOni distinct difference in manner]] (Caiaphas blue, Annas red) add to the impression.

* [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong Suspiciously Similar "Song"]]: The background cacophony in "The Crucifixion" seems heavily inspired by [[Music/TheBeatles "Revolution 9"]], released just a few years prior.

* HarsherInHindsight: The dig against Music/JohnLennon ("Jesus is bigger than John was when he did his baptism thing") isn't as funny since he died nine years later.

** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with Caiaphas in the otherwise fairly straightforward 2000 version, however. He has a relatively benevolent-looking face, as opposed to Annas, who looks almost exactly like [[HarryPotter Voldemort]]. Played straight by Pilate in the same version - he has a chinstrap BeardOfEvil and his costume is a combination of a Gestapo officer and a Roman legionary.
