Given that Music/CattleDecapitation deals with a lot of guresomely misanthropic themes, this isn't too surprising. Seriously, their music (and videos) are so [[NightmareFuel terrifying]] that listing every last example would be truly exhausting to fit outside its own page.

* While "Forced Gender Reassignment" isn't particularly unsettling as a song (it's a pretty straightforward brutal death song, even though it will qualify as this trope anyways to the unitiated), the video is, well... let's put it this way: it's a fairly faithful reproduction of the lyrics. Sans [[GoryDiscretionShot Gory Discretion Shots]]. Let that sink in for a moment. [[KickTheSonOfABitch The fact that the victims in the video are Westboro Baptist Church expies might take the edge off for some, though.]]

%%* "Alone at the Landfill". Dear god, just "Alone at the Landfill". This song is utter despair made form.
* The effects at the beginning of "Tooth Enamel and Concrete". It's just Travis screaming incoherently over a harsh noise backdrop, but it genuinely sounds like someone's mouth is being mechanically torn apart.



to:

* Most of their album covers easily qualify. Special mention should go to the first three albums, with ''Humanure'''s cover being so revolting the band had to change it.


Added DiffLines:

* "Men Before Swine", the outro of ''Humanure'', closes the album out with an incredibly unnerving sound collage of [[HellIsThatNoise noises from an actual slaughterhouse]]. The worst thing is, this goes on for ''nine minutes.''

to:

* The intro ''Death Atlas'' is a ConceptAlbum about how humanity has irreversibly damaged the environment, and how an apocalyptic scenario is now inevitable. Despite not having any gore-themed songs, it can still leave you feeling thoroughly disturbed, due to how it suggests that all of "Testicular Manslaughter" mankind could be wiped out in the near future, that there's nothing we'll be able do about it, and that [[HumansAreBastards we deserve this fate for our awful treatment of the environment]]. And unlike any fictional serial killer or psycho that the band could have written about, the threat described in these lyrics is an audio snippet of an actual decapitation. It's just as bad as it sounds.very, very real.

We deserve everything that's coming\\

We took this world to our graves''


* The chorus of "Your Disposal", as [[EarWorm catchy]] as it is, is also deeply unsettling. Let's face it, Travis' "clean" vocals are this trope in general.

* "Pacific Grim" is, in a word, apocalyptic. It's structured like the final chapter of humanity as it slides from desperation to resignation, and the song feels like a twisted funeral hymn.

* "The Harvest Floor/Regret & the Grave". The former serves as an intro of sorts and is an ominous ambient piece with [[Music/{{Swans}} Jarboe]] chanting wordlessly over it, while the latter starts with a hypnotic bassline and tribal-esque drum pattern before a very eerie cello line starts over it. Then the guitars kick in, along with Travis' roar, and you know that something's coming. It does... in the form of a ear-piercingly screechy lead riff. The whole thing borders on traumatic.
