    Maybe something by Karda Estra.
    When you list all the qualities that you despise and you realize you're describing yourself.

    Don’t forget ethnic music . Some of the old Nonesuch records could be good. Especially the African side of things. I remember a very spooky one that had a title that began with “death and dying…”
    We’d put it on when guests stayed too long. It cleared people out ASAP.

    That zoviet*france was also very good...I suspect they would have more things that would fit as well.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    All genres are certainly welcomed! If you (or anyone else) have a specific rec in this area, please don't hesitate to suggest.




    And thanks for all the suggestions thus far...i'm slowly making my way through them.

    My immediate thought was Morte Macabre:



    Four-Mellotron spook attack, what's not to like?

    If that's too in-your-face, then a bit of Medieval dark ambient may hit the spot:

    There is some excellent stuff on that soundtrack, particularly the tracks I Live In The Gut and Ward A. Much obliged!

    Ohh...an interesting choice for sure. Didn't even consider this side of Zappa.

    Just skimmed this one, but it is bursting with intrigue. This sounds like it'll be winner, many thanks.

    MM is also an interesting choice. I always forgot about them, but I suspect they will be a little 'straight' for what I'm looking for. Will listen to the album again though, never the less.

    Yup.

    Check out the film, too.

    The name of the film is familar to me, so I feel like I have either attempted to watch it (and got distracted) or just put it on the list of movies to see (which is enormous).

    Damn...Dark Ages is great. Much abounds through their discog, and even from outside this thread's perspective, I'm enjoying all four of their albums immensely. will definitely be featured.

    Back when I was doing radio, this was a Halloween show staple. Creeped me out anyway.

    Almost anything from Shub-Niggurath

    also Art Zoyd, Univers Zero and Present as well (eerie & gloomy)
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Glad you dig! For me they are one of those artists that operate in a small, highly-specific niche but within that absolutely nail it. When I want to hear “this type of thing”, I don't have to look elsewhere…

    While we’re having a thread of creepy music, it’d be remiss if Peter Frohmader wasn’t represented:

    I always create a Halloween playlist every year and use tracks from mostly dark symphonic and soundtrack prog. In fact I was already thinking about making my 2021 playlist. And yes I do use many bands that employ the mellotron, which always suites the music well. Here are some of those artists that I use:

    All Traps On Earth
    King Crimson
    Daal
    The Black Codex
    Anima Morte
    Nicklas Barker
    Ske
    Ars De Er
    Anglagard
    Fredrik Klingwall
    Unit Wail
    Popol Vuh
    Peter Hammill
    Ennio Morricone
    Fabio Fizzi
    Goblin
    Nordagust
    In Lingua Mortua
    Jordsko
    Pixie Ninja
    Wobbler
    Dead Can Dance
    Black Midi
    White Willow
    Citizen Cain
    Telepath

    There's more, but you can't go wrong finding appropriate tracks for the occasion.

    This is from a very dark ambient album by David Arkenstone. It is not typical of his work but very well done. The whole album is very dark.
