i've always liked horror films/music and dark stuff in general but lately im really starting to love a lot of the really spooky sounding prog/folk/psych..i think the spooky stuff is more beatiful/sad than the straight up dark prog
some of the ones i'm liking at the min
catharsis-masque vol 1(strummy folky guitars ,ghostly wailing, a bit of organ..the tune 4 art 6 would be a perfect tune for suicide i reckon.. it starts out relaxing and sad but builds up epic style for 7 odd minutes culminating in screams and erotic noises..dont listen on your headphones while walking home late at night really stoned cos i almost had a whitey the other night from all the voices(i hadn't smoked in a bit)
third ear band-macbeth (the opening tune is full on discordant horror soundtrack style with a nice bassline that keeps it from degenarating into unlistenable while the tune fleance is really sad traditional folk with a haunting edge from the pipes and the female singers voice..)(anyone heard the alchemy lp? i fancy a listen but always too expensive when i see it)
banco del mutuo soccorsso-darwin(sp)-(so many good bits on this one..this lp is one of the ones where you sit down with a spliff and headphones and just trance out and listen to the whole thing...the vocals grated on me a bit at first but you learn to live with them.. )
so what are your picks for some similar stuff???
easier to find and cheaper the better!!
