Music that creeps you the hell out:

...Holly shit.

That's, like, "Play while the world dies in an otherwise silent fiery explosion" material.

Well, fear of god is an existing concept, but the Lyrical Dissonance... is... quite epic, I'd say.

I didn't really notice the lyrics.

Dissonance is a powerful tool, you can get some real heart-wrenching sounds by transposing just the right note just one semitone.

All of Charles Ives' work sounds like that apparently. Slow, meant for a soprano and REALLY FRIGGIN' DISSONANT. He did one piece which was a piano duet, with one piano detuned by a quarter-step. Just typing that is nails on a chalkboard to me.

Lustmord has made some epically scary stuff, but Il Sole Di Granada by Circumliver is the most pants-shittingly terrifying thing I have ever heard.

Am I the only one who finds Dark Ambient like, not scary at all?

I mean, I like chilling and listening to Lustmord, but it's more relaxing than scary.

[up]And that kinda went straight into Narm territory, especially with the pictures.

Chad Vangaalen's 'Molten Light'. The music video does not help either

[up][up][up][up] Even the main menu theme in those games is unsettling. Great series though, definitely my favorite shooters.

Frankly, I listen to a whole lot of goth and industrial songs but the only song to real scare me, EVER was this:

Tough that was years ago when I was 15, now I just find it a little cool and VERY catchy(this is something I always tought about this song, there's nothing worse than a scary catchy song).

There's also jump scares like the end of subway song by the cure but I don't count those since I'd feel the same way even if it was a Britney Spears song.

There's also this one by :wumpscut: that's kind of creepy but since it's a little cheesy and once again catchy it doesn't impress me so much:

Dr. Thodt was the worst song on Wreath Of Barbs IMO.
I like it tongue, why do you dislike it? ^^

I thought the spoken word was clunky.

It wasn't a bad song but it did screw up the flow of the album.

I must give great props to Twentington for the Charles Ives hymn. Not something I would have immediately thought of—I find Ives' work often rather beautiful—but sinister in extremis nonetheless. Ditto theoneguy for bringing up "Molten Light", which I adore. "And they dumped her body into the molten light..."

Now, to settle something:
Meh, adding sounds of children just doesn't make something creepy in my book. It sounds too much like background music, makes me sleepy.

You didn't get to the part with the phone sex worker, did you? Pathetic!

[up]I actually played the Charles Ives hymn a few times since it's in the Methodist hymnal and it looked interesting. I'm really good at sightreading.

Written by someone who was going insane... listen to it often enough and you'll go insane, too. The long outro with the "oohs" is particularly haunting.

Also, I know Pink Floyd already accounts for half of this thread, but The Wall in its entirety is High Octane Nightmare Fuel to me.

There are references to all sorts of nasty things - from overprotective mothers and Sadist Teachers to Fascism - but what makes it really bad is that unless you've seen the film, or read a synopsis, it's quite impossible to figure out what the hell it's about. And then there's the whole atmosphere of alienation and insanity that's present in each and every song...

Yes, The Wall is a dark, evil, terrifying thing.

[up] Somehow the only track on The Wall that really creeped me out is "Don't Leave Me Now". If I remember correctly, in the movie that song accompanied Pink floating in a pool while bleeding too.

[up] [up] I'm used to the Judas Priest and Melvins versions, neither of which really capture the creepiness of the above. There's especially something eerie about all the "oohs" towards the end.

[up] x8: I eventually came to realize that Chris Connelly (the guest vocalist on that Ministry track) was kind of trying to imitate John Lydon. So accordingly, here's some pretty creepy PIL:

Ooh, also, Comus - "Drip Drip" (warning: Epic Rocking ahead)

[up][up] FUCK YES. [awesome] "Under the House" is possibly my favourite song in the entire Pi L canon. It is also terrifying. I applaud you on your taste. And Comus are wonderful as well, so double kudos.

P.S. The song is even creepier when you know what it's about.

Doesn't exactly "Creep Me The Fuck Out" but it's probably the best example of the insanely anxious sound of early D'n'B.

Seriously, grab some good headphones and it'll leave your nerves fried.

David Eugene Edwards has written his fair share of scary songs for 16 Horsepower and Woven Hand, but I think "To Make a Ring" is the scariest.

[up] Woven Hand is one of those groups that manages to make the idea of divine salvation sound truly scary. I do not think that this is to be counted against them. Also, the line about Christ suffering forever gains an extra layer of significance if you know anything about the Patripassianists.

Speaking of souls:

Enjoy the silence.

This should scare the crap out of you. And no, it is not a parody.

Being (at least occasionally) scared spitless of God is a perfectly normal reaction. David Eugene Edwards is apparently not a normal human being, because he doesn't consider any of his lyrics scary.
