The Emptiness is a concept album by American Post-hardcore act {{Alesana}}. It concerns an artist (The drawing kind) who wakes up to find he's murdered his lover.

! Provides examples of:
* AlbumTitleDrop: In ''Curse of the Virgin Canvas'' and ''Hymn For the Shameless'' the line "The Emptiness will haunt you"
* AxCrazy: The artist goes this way in ''The Murderer''
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Aside from Annabel, The only other three named characters are "The Artist", "The Thespian" and "The Lover"
* {{Gaslighting}}: By the Thespian to the Artist.
* KarmaHoudini: The Thespian kills the Artist wife, tricks him into thinking he did it, and triggers a murderous rampage, and ends up winning the fight with the Artist [[spoiler:If he wasn't a hallucination that is.]]
* MadArtist: The Artist. Complete nutter butter. See Sanity Slippage on this page.
* SanitySlippage: The whole thing is kinda a [[SanitySlippageSong Sanity Slippage Album]] [[spoiler:Subverted in that the protagonist was already off his flipping rocker, and is [[MindScrew Hallucinating about going insane]] ]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: The Artist when he first lays eyes on his dead Annabel.
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:Annabel kills The Artist during the climax of the story, to relieve him of his insanity spawned hallucinations.]]
* WhatHaveIBecome?: "Lord forgive me.../...I'm a monster!" Subverted [[spoiler:he doesn't become a monster. Just a psycho-killer.]]
* EnemyWithin: Subverted [[spoiler: The Thespian leads The Artist to think that he killed Annabel, in turn causing The Artist to think he has an enemy within, but it turns out that The Thespian is a different person, but then in the ending it ultimately turns out that the whole thing is in his head, anyway.]]
