Top Ten Most Haunting Genres of Music


The Top TenXW


Well, all I can do is take your word for it. You know what you're talking about. - Britgirl

Chillstep is a very underrated genre. It combines two of the least likely genres: chillout and dubstep. What results is often a very subtle and spooky atmosphere, which I always find somewhat tranquillising, if not haunting. But it takes a lot of talent to make it work, and so, finding an act of chillstep music with this effect in full is hard. I would begin with Electus, with tracks like "Fallen", "Peace of Mind" and "Metaphysics". - PositronWildhawk

Downtempo was the chillout-derived subgenre of electronic music which first made me passionate for electronic music in general, and, when played right, it can have a very haunting atmosphere. - PositronWildhawk

Only when you listen to a lot of trance do you eventually see that it can be haunting. Chicane has proved this on many an occasion. - PositronWildhawk

Exemplified by songs like "Nella Fantasia", which is the theme "Gabriel's Oboe" from the movie "The Mission" with lyrics added. However, almost anything can be performed in the CC style. Singers are usually female, like Sarah Brightman, Jackie Evancho, and Toni Gibson.
