ITT: Post albums that never fail to frighten you.
Most of the album itself isn't scary, but the ending of A Beast Cage is terrifying. Sounded like a wall of noise at first,
but upon closer inspection, the "wall" was composed of people shrieking.
same here. It is definitely a dark depressing album, but there is a lot of hope in it, at least that's what I get from it.
that and DC are perfect
I SCREAM, NO ONE HEARS ME! IT HURTS, NOT A LIAR! MY GOD, SAW YOU WATCH. MOMMY WHY, YOUR OWN CHILD!?!
Songs about child molestation aren't that pleasant.
Man, this one made me really uncomfortable for the first 5 or 6 times listening to it, but it kept drawing me back regardless.
Now Locrian are one of my favorite groups.
This, from time to time. One of my favorite albums ever, but I when I listen to it in the darkness of my room, the only light the monitor of my pc, the walls bathing in reflection and the corners twisting and always becoming well, it's absolutely horrifying.
And I forgot the pic like the dumbass I am
Didn't sleep for a couple days after listening to this.
They deserve more attention, I agree. New album this year hopefully. Territories is a really uncomfortable burn too. But Antediluvian Territory is a top 5 Locrian song.
Their more drone/ambient stuff is awesome too.
I also want to take this opportunity to say that Xiu Xiu is total shit
The whole discography by them. It gives me the chills.
The first time I heard the opening track I was laying alone in the dark trying not to look at the album cover and it was terrifying
That song still creeps me out
I listened to this in bed in complete darkness during a very emotionally intense night and it was not the best idea.
I think Dead Goon used to scare me the most. Except now it's my favourite song of all time.
I listened to this while exhausted and with a headache... didn't know what i was getting into
i found the 'voices of unknown origin' part much more unsettling
Maybe this has been posted already.. Does anyone know the album where they allegedly recorded a group of mental patients going to town on an abandoned building with sledgehammers whilst screaming their lungs out? Something like that, at least. I can't remember the name of it.
A bit unsettling but doesn't really frighten me. Mostly because i love drone and dark ambient.
But might frighten some people i guess
Ha, I used to do the same thing with Deathconsciousness. Just pop my headphones in and walk around at like 3 AM after a night out if I was feeling depressed. Definitely gets pretty eerie.
>mfw this was literally all I used to to listen to when I was a kid
>even downloaded the videos so I could watch them on the bus rides to schoo
l>I knew every bing, bop, and woop by heart and would sometimes sing along
>people probably thought I was weird as fuck but I didn't care because I was happy
i've heard this one is scary but can't find a download link
>When you close your eyes you feel as though there is something in the room.
>mfw this is literally how I felt
I remember it felt like a monster was standing in the room and I was waiting for it to grab me.
Don't be talking shit about Christ and the Pale Queens
Everything after '97 is shit
Well I hate that album, it's too long and his words alone backed by uninteresting music aren't enough to make it good.
Let's be honest here, do you actually sit through Mighty in Sorrow for 18 minutes?
Yes actually. I love that loop. It's good for reading, browsing, or just doing nothing. I like the medieval sound of the record. I get where you're coming from, but I think it's still an atmospheric record. One of my favorites.
>black ships ate the sky
>birth canal blues
>i am the last of the field that fell
Inhale has some fuckt up scary shit.
Just listen to Breathing Water.
Bandcamp album link.
This album right here. Creepiest vocals I done ever heard.
i've had weird experiences listening to this album, but the most ominous was when, after listening to this album, i immediately got news of my friends death. this is obviously fallacious, but i couldn't help but feel an association between the two
>mfw Blixa Bargeld dated her
I wonder what was it kind
The whole album is creepy, but the fucking jumpscare in There Isn't Anything made me jump up and spill my drink the first time I heard it. You're so zoned out due to the ambient part before it, then it hits you. Now every time I hear it I'm just anxiously awaiting it.
why scariest? i heard this and nothing happen, what kind of music scare somebody? really, i dont get it...
I think this is the only album to legitimately unsettle me and make me feel uncomfortable, that I can remember anyway
Also very frightening tracks by coil:
i think there's a man in my house. i can't find my kitchen knife.
>The instruments were made out of human bones
>Collection of audio documents of paranormal phenomena including trance speech, direct voices, clairvoyance, xenoglossy, glossolia including ethnological material, paranormal music, "rappings" and other poltergeist manifestations as well as so-called "Electronic voice phenomena".
Public Castration is also pretty scary, but I think this has a great atmosphere, plus dominating lyrics really affect me
most of board of canada. maybe I'm a pussy but the tracks give me goosebumps.
I did, perhaps i didn't perceive it correctly.
Is the "special plan" pretty much like the Human Instrumentality Project from Neon genesis evangalion
sorry for the anime reference, but it seemed oddly similar to the way i understood it. If not what is the "special plan"?
Trist-Hin/Fort has some really weird parts. Also Transformalin by Diagnose: Lebesneahsdfioashgaehrioaehf (don't feel like spelling today)
Also nobody has ever heard of this album, but Gigantic Brain-You Did This To Me is bandcamp grindcore and it's creepy as hell
>pic related, the title track has a different album art and the subsequent tracks are this creepy ass fuckstick. Scared the shit out of me the first time I unlocked my ipod and looked at it
Oh, also Abu Lahab, Moroccan mass-abortion-core:
I've actually never been able to listen past the second iteration of the title track
when I was 11, I bought the ozzman cometh, an ozzy comp that had 2 sabbath songs at the beginning, black sabbath and war pigs. I used to fall asleep listening to music all the time, so I put the cd in and skipped right to mr. crowley and went to sleep.
somehow I had put the album on repeat all, so at like 3 in the morning, I woke up to the big crescendo in black sabbath when ozzy screams "please god help me" and I think I pissed myself and started crying.
I really like that song now though.
this made me jump, it's a little comedic at times, but crank it up loud enough, and let the rage flow. but i guess it's for people who are scared only of themselves.
i had a friend over and we found the axel f video on a website and we loved it so much we went outside to another friends house to tell him about but once we were there none of us wanted to ring the doorbell so we just sat on his driveway petting his cat
You lie down in your bed in a completely dark room (or have something covering your eyes) and move as little as possible. If done correctly, there is a chance that you will enter a trance or have an out of body experience.
Isn't it from some university lecture on death? The professor from the class has quite a few books out about death.
Dread Magnificence... is too unfocused, ...Mort Triomphante is a masterful work true but not as frightening as pic related or Rend each other...
>the vocals in Bathory Erzsebet used to spook me so bad
I think the guy who did it (Xasthur or something I think) is claustrophobic, so they locked him in a coffin before recording those screams. They're legitimate screams of terror.
The "special plan" is the destruction of everything that exists, implicitly through suicide. You really have to be a borderline suicidal solipsist or nihilist to really feel it, so that's why that song is so close to me.
It gives me the same feeling that I get when I have a memory from my childhood surface. For me it's not exactly fear, but sadness that I can't go back, and an uncomfortable feeling that all my memories are faded and distorted.
I agree. Deathconsciousness is sadder than Giles Corey because I feel like Giles Corey is affirmation of depression and it presents depression as a part of life but not a dominate force in life, if that makes sense?
I find Dawn like In Menstrual Night in that it feels more cheery than anything (other than the later added Maldoror est Mort of course). Bar Maldoror is genuinely unsettling though.
It's the first track on White 1. Indeed spooky shit. Great album.
Also, why is there not more Nurse With Wound ITT? It's the perfect music for this type of thread.
all of these albums are just generic dark ambient and found sounds
Early Current is what you're looking for
ON THE THRESHING FLOOR
How is this not already posted?
This album is nerve-racking and generally fantastic.
This is like a /dark/ thread without the shitty modern goth bands. I like it.
Anyway, I remember feeling really uncomfortable while listening to pic related's second track from the second disc.
Sounded like field recordings from insane people + noise. Really unsettling, and this is coming from a guy who listened to all of the industrial/noise stuff posted here so far.
Sadly, there isn't any samples.
And this thing is also pretty scary,
