** "Circles of Mania," which sees Jhonn ecstatically [[LargeHam hamming]] his way through WordSaladLyrics which mercilessly kludge together eroticism, violence, nihilism, and Roman history. "Slur" is mostly similar, albeit with a haunting falsetto vocal and creepy brass arrangements.

Added DiffLines:

* Their cover of "Tainted Love", which massively slows down the bouncy mood of the original into an aching funeral dirge, with jarringly loud and distorted piano chords punctuating every lyric. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GUnUGKgWDY The unbelievably bleak music video]], depicting a man slowly succumbing to AIDS and DyingAlone (plus lots of sudden flashes of miscellaneous disturbing images), is almost unbearable to watch.


** From the same album, "Panic," with its frenetic backbeat and lyrics that seem to alternate between FalseReassurance and MadnessMantra, to the point where the lines begin to blur.

* One of their albums, "Constant Shallowness Leads to Evil" is full of nightmare fuel. "Higher Beings Command" is a bitcrushed noise jam, "I Am the Green Child" is a distorted, psychedelic singalong, and the "Tunnel of Goats" set is [[SensoryAbuse pure, warped noise]], along with phased vocals by Jhonn.

* "Queens Of The Circulating Library", a nearly [[EpicRocking fifty-minute track]] mostly composed of resonant drones, goes into this territory about halfway through, with a spoken-word piece that ends up invoking NothingIsScarier.

** The crown jewel, however, may be "Ostia (The Death Of [[SaloOrThe120DaysOfSodom Pasolini]]). Balance's DullSurprise works in coveying a worthlessness to life accented by the work and mysterious murder of the titular Italian director.

* The ''Music To Play In The Dark'' duology, which manages to keep up a consistently unsettling atmosphere throughout.
* "It's In My Blood," primarily due to its [[SpeakingSimlish shrieked, blabbering vocals]] and the dramatic orchestra playing in- and out-of-time with the already ominous beat.
