Creepiest Non-Extreme Metal Songs

If an extreme metal song is creepy, it's expected - creepy songs are normal for black metal, death metal and even thrash metal (the sounds Slayer put in their songs).
But some non-extreme metal songs sound pretty creepy, too.

The Top Ten

The Oath - Mercyful Fate The Oath - Mercyful Fate Cover Art

Musically, this song isn't extreme metal - it's standard heavy/traditional metal and in fact, it isn't very heavy even for traditional metal. But the 1st part is very creepy. - Metal_Treasure

The Spider's Lullabye - King Diamond The Spider's Lullabye - King Diamond Cover Art

King Diamond, Hansi Kursch and Jon Oliva are the 3 metal singers who often use something like voice acting in their songs. - Metal_Treasure

Sacred Mind - Blind Guardian Sacred Mind - Blind Guardian Cover Art

In the first 2 minutes Hansi uses his ghostly voice for both singing and voice acting, especially 1:00-2:00. This part of the song comes with relevant lyrics:
"Can I show you Fear?
Don't move, Don't turn, Don't come too close
as I burn down this place
My spirit will set it all on fire
Would you like to meet the tyrant in the twilight zone? - Metal_Treasure

Death Is Just A Feeling - Avantasia Death Is Just A Feeling - Avantasia Cover Art

Jon Oliva vocals are creepy (the best part is on the song sample). - Metal_Treasure

More Than Pain - King Diamond More Than Pain - King Diamond Cover Art
Bright Eyes - Blind Guardian Bright Eyes - Blind Guardian Cover Art

Music, vocals and lyrics are creepy, esp. "Watching you, Watching you, Watching you". - Metal_Treasure

Disturbing the Priest - Black Sabbath Disturbing the Priest - Black Sabbath Cover Art

Ian Gillan vocals are creepy, particularly his screams in the intro. Music is somewhat creepy, too. - Metal_Treasure

Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne Cover Art
Shades of Death - Accept Shades of Death - Accept Cover Art

Music to the intro is very creepy and fits the lyrical theme of the song. My favorite song by this band. - Metal_Treasure

Wildfire - Sonata Arctica Wildfire - Sonata Arctica Cover Art

The Contenders

Altair 4 - Blind Guardian

Creepy sounds, screams and laughs. I like it very much. - Metal_Treasure

Perfect Strangers - Deep Purple Perfect Strangers - Deep Purple Cover Art

Yes, this riff sounds like a monster riff. I am glad I wasn't alone. - zxm

It's the riff. Me and zxm associate this riff with a monster chasing you. - Metal_Treasure
