!!This band provides examples of:

* AmusementParkOfDoom / CircusOfFear: The Greatest Show Unearthed
* BoundAndGagged: The band has a song named precisely that, about a kidnapped daughter.
* BurnTheWitch!: Here There Be Witches
* BuriedAlive: Such Horrible Things has the narrator do this to his big brother (who gets better), and "Buried Alive", where the narrator wants this to happen to him after reading too much Poe.
** "A Gorey Demise", E is for Erik who was buried alive.
* CreepyCircusMusic: "The Greatest Show Unearthed"
* EldritchAbomination: "Fodder For the Elder Gods
* EnfantTerrible /VillainSong/ CardCarryingVillain: "Such Horrible Things". The narrator was a right terror from birth to 18, when he's finally tossed in the madhouse for the rest of his life.
** "Bad Blood" is about a similiar character who is pathologically driven to evil, although this guy is a bit more of an AntiVillain, torn between trying to redeem himself and the comforting certainty of [[BeYourself just being himself]].
* EyeScream: "A Gorey Demise" lists the deaths of 26 people in alphabetical order, including F, for Frank who was stabbed through the eye.
* FateWorseThanDeath: The song of the same name.
* {{Garfunkel}}: Erik X. Poor Erik.
* GraveRobbing: "Grave Robber At Large"
* {{Goth}}
* GoryDiscretionShot / NoodleIncident: In "Such Horrible Things", the singer mentions cryptically "that one time" when he was 14. This goes directly into a guitar interlude under which screaming can be heard and which ends with the singer chuckling happily, implying that the events of age 14 were too graphic to describe in words.
* HauntedHouse: "The House of Myth"
* ILoveTheDead: "A Corpse In My Bed"
* ItWasADarkAndStormyNight: The song of the same name.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: This appears to be the case in "Such Horrible Things".
* JackTheRipper: Though it's never specifically addressed, it's heavily implied the song 'Dr. Sawbones' is about Jack the Ripper.
* LyricalDissonance: A lot of their stuff has a fun, bouncy beat.
* MonsterMash: "A Gorey Demise" starts with an undead dinner party before the host begins singing "the annual obituaries".
* NotUsingTheZWord: "Aim For the Head" uses the word "ghoul" instead. "If you kill the brain, then you kill the ghoul."
* OminousMusicBoxTune: The beginning of "Mommy's Little Monsters".
** Also prominently featured in the instrumental "Death of a Dollmaker".
* PuppeteerParasite: "Look to the Skies" is about aliens who have come to earth to take over the bodies of people while they sleep, and is heavily modeled on ''InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers''.
* RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain: "Aim for the Head"
* ShoutOut: See WholePlotReference, below.
* SongOfSongTitles: As noted above, "BuriedAlive" is mainly {{Shout Out}}s to Edgar Allan Poe, starting with ''A Dream Within a Dream'', and ending with ''Literature/TheRaven''.
* ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight: ''The Unearthly Ones'' and ''Mommy's Little Monsters''.
* TorchesAndPitchforks: ''The Unearthly Ones'': "An army of pitchforks and torches"
* WholePlotReference /FilkSong:
** "Look to the Skies" for ''InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers''.
** "Aim for the Head" for ''Film/DawnOfTheDead'' and ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead''.
