creepy music

  • Avatar of Lizzie Lynch

    I like music that has a haunting tone no matter what the genre is or the subject matter. If the song has a good enough voice and gets me to to the core its a chillingly good song.

    Flyleaf
    Imogen Heap
    Sufijan Stevens
    Incubus
    Regina Spektor
    Medicated Kisses
    Martina McBride

    add the bands you think have this same quality.

    It’s odd, and maybe creepy. If I had a haunted house, I’d play few tracks off of it…

    I find pop music kinda creepy… maybe that’s just nausea…

    Loreena Mckennit, Sarah Brightman, Girl Under Glass, Qntal all have haunting vocals..

    Dead Can Dance haunting as hell,  just as a reference if anyone saw The Myst that Steven King movie that came out a little while ago, the song playin at the end of the movie is The Host of Seraphim by them….on a side note oakenfold did a bitchin techno remix of that song….well bitchin if your into glowsticks i guess

    I think some of the bands/artists you mention have a unique or alternative/indie sound to them rather than being creepy.  Flyleaf has a bit of a alt-rock feel to their music, along the same vein as ParamoreRegina Spektor has a really unique sound as well… I love the sweetness in her voice in her song ‘Samson’, along with her ability to produce those staccato notes in her song ‘Fidelity’.  It’s almost impossible to recreate!  While being a bit quirky as a person, Imogen Heap definately has a indie sound to her music. 

    If you like those bands you might like Death Cab for Cutie. Also the band Within Tempation is a bit along the lines of Regina Spektor, although they are a bit more mainstream sounding.  Also for a band with a bit beat, you might enjoy Blaqk Audio.  Their album CexCells is pretty groovy.

    I like his work. Dead Can Dance is a great! The remix is awesome!

    When I think of creepy music, I think of bands like Midnight Syndicate, Nox Arcana, Dead can Dance, Matthew Schultz, and Unto Ashes. As someone already mentioned, the music from the Silent Hill games is also pretty creepy. Akira Yamaoka is an amazing composer, and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn(aka Melissa Williamson) has a very haunting voice.

    Avatar of Arioch Morningstar

    A nice selection to get a massage to. I only have "A Passage in Time" and really enjoy it, but I’d classify it as kind of an upbeat Enya/Yanni kind of thing.

    Never heard of any of the others. What genre would you say they fall into (besides creepy, smartasses)?

    If you want to hear creepy, check out what Chris Vrenna did on "American McGee’s Alice"

    Well, I guess you could say they would fall under the category of gothic music, but there are some slight differences in the way they sound. Both Midnight Syndicate and Nox Arcana would definitely be in the gothic horror genre. If you’re into horror movies and/or halloween, this is definitely the music you wanna listen to. :)

    As for Matthew Schultz and Akira Yamaoka, they both have more of a dark ambient sound to their music. Unto Ashes is more folk/classical, but still very dark.

     Should have done that to begin with. Jacktard. Yeah me. Boarding the short bus now Tongue out

     Any particular album(s) that is stronger or weaker than the others?

    I haven’t heard all of their stuff. I’ve only listened to Empty Into White, and a few other songs from Songs For a widow. From what I’ve heard so far, all of their music seems to be pretty good; but that’s just my opinion.

    Avatar of Chris Wilks

    Mr. Bungle has some really creepy songs for sure.

    Polkadot Cadaver is also very creepy

    Some might say Gwar is creepy

    Twin Peaks Soundtrack and Lost Highway Soundtrack are both super creepy

    Stealing Babies is also CREEPY

    Avatar of Gmork

    That definitely qualifies as creepy music!

    Avatar of Paul Elard Cooley

    Listening to the soundtrack for Pandorum.  Don’t know how the movie will be (ain’t seen it yet), but the soundtrack is kickass spooky.

    Cradle of Filth counts as creepy. To a certain extent.

    Yep, that’s pretty creepy.

    This reminded me of another band called Clock Dva. They don’t necessarily have the same sound as Throbbing Gristle, but they do have some really creepy songs. Check out Connection Machine.
