Creepiest Non-Extreme Metal SongsMetal_Treasure 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
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
King Diamond, Hansi Kursch and Jon Oliva are the 3 metal singers who often use something like voice acting in their songs. - Metal_Treasure
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
Jon Oliva vocals are creepy (the best part is on the song sample). - Metal_Treasure
Music, vocals and lyrics are creepy, esp. "Watching you, Watching you, Watching you". - Metal_Treasure
Ian Gillan vocals are creepy, particularly his screams in the intro. Music is somewhat creepy, too. - Metal_Treasure
Music to the intro is very creepy and fits the lyrical theme of the song. My favorite song by this band. - Metal_Treasure
Creepy sounds, screams and laughs. I like it very much. - Metal_Treasure
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
