I love dark music,
The darker the better

There is an Industrial metal band
called Tsengrin

The album called T.R.I.A.D.E.

Its my favourite at the moment
I was always into fringe music..
this cost me only 99c on ebay....
what a bargain!

Problem with ebay is there are always interesting product there

i got two orgone rods and an auric amplifier for less than 10
euro!

Excellent!

Cradle of Filth are awesome, i like Evanescence which can be dark at times, Lacuna Coil, My chemical romance, 30 Seconds to Mars, NIN, Within Temptation, Seether, Slipknot, Drowning Pool, Stone sour,Smashing Pumpkins....well i guess i'm on the lighter side of dark. I like stuff i can sing to, don't really like a lot of the screaming that happens in death metal though...


Same here, I Luv Dark music but if there is to much sceamin I dont listen to it for long. But if its just the music no lyrics I will listen all day.

Considering i am a goth myself :howl-moon: i tend to listen to the darker side of music mainly. Rammstein, cradle of filth, otep, arch enemy etc. Works well if your having a bad day you cant concentrate, you need to get your frustration out pop one of those songs on your good to go.
Better yet, when you need to rev yourself for something that requires enegry its best to listen to something of that flavor. But i listen to everything but country music, gospel or opera. So, im not limiting myself lol.

These are great bands, LDG, and I totally agree with what you said. I especially love to listen to that music when I am driving to work. It prevents me from kicking some management ass!!!:mad:By the way, is that a weimaraner in your pic?

Rammstein is a great band :) My favourite song is prolly Engle. I prefer the German versions to the songs though not the english, they tend to change a lot of the words in the translations.

Make that a fourth! Wow... you never hear of Type 0 Neg fans.
I'm a little odd though probably, in that I prefer the "Life is Killing Me" album over their others. Still, "Be My Druidess" cracks me up..
I'm also a big Lacuna Coil fan.
Lately, it's been Killswitch Engage I listen to (As Daylight Dies), but in a different vein, I recently tried Blackmores Night.
I say "tried", because it just isn't doing it for me. It's too "cookie cutter" and not very authentic, even when it tries to be. I admire Ritchie Blackmore and all, hell, Machine Head was my very first album I ever bought, but.. nahh. I dunno, the whole band sounds so contrived or something.

A few years back, Evanescence was my band, and Amy Lee was my girl. After the 2nd album came out though, I completely changed my mind. She never shut the hell up and allowed balance to the music, she stomped all over the other musicians constantly. So now it's all about her and her voice and her ego, so that killed them.

I listen to the newer generation's music because I got fookin' sick to death of mine. Growing up, I used to be big on Rush, Boston, Journey, Foreigner, Jethro Tull, Kansas, and Van Halen. And if I NEVER have to hear Led Zeppelin, The Who, or Pink Floyd again, I'll be just fine. The radio has played that stuff into the ground and I'm still sick to death of it.

I just came across a double CD called "Celtic Sounds of Middle Earth", obviously inspired by Lord of the Rings. It's pretty cool, very soothing. Here's what I don't get - what the hell is Celtic about Lord of the Rings or Middle Earth?!? Those were Anglo-Saxon/Norse constructs, lol. Tolkien studied Anglo-Saxon anthropology, not the Celtic culture. It's like reading books on "Celtic Runes".. :rolleyes:

Killswitch Engage is odd in that the verses are usually "growled", not "sung" -
I'm no fan of Pantera-esque growling - but when they get to the chorus, it breaks into more "traditional" rock singing, and they're always extremely melodic and catchy while still being ass-whompin'. I wish they'd drop the growly stuff altogether but that'll probably never happen. The band is excellent, I love the double/triple guitar work and the drummer on the last two CDs is a monster.

Wow...I am certainly out of my element in this thread. I haven't heard of most of the groups ya'll are talking about. I would say that the 'darkest' song on my IPod is "I Hate Everything About You" by Ugly Kid Joe. LOL

I have all Nightwish music (old), not so struck now original lead singer has gone, have some Leaves Eyes and Tristania and a couple of other Finnish groups which I like....I don't like Enya, although I do like Loreena McKennit a lot. I guess it depends on the mood at the time....I'll listen to nearly anything although not fond of country or jazz

I just finished reading an old thread about "witchy" music. I saw that most of you that posted are really into the celtic, Loreena, Enya type music...which incidently, I love. My question is....do any of you enjoy dark, gothic type music? My absolute favorite is...ahem....Cradle of filth!!! My husband thinks I'm nuts, but thats cool with me! I also enjoy Leaves eyes and Tristania, to name a couple. Anyone out there with the same musical tastes?



I don't listen to anything to heavy...I just don't like it. I do listen to a song or two from Tiamat, Darling Violetta (if you call that dark) and a little Rob Zombie...and I did love the soundtrack to Queen of the Damned too...

"My church is not of silver and gold,
Its glory lies beyond judgement of souls
The commandments are of consolation & warmth
You know our sacred dream won't fail
The sanctury tender and so frail
The sacrament of love
The sacrament of warmth is true
The sacrament is you"
