Top Ten Darkest Bands of All TimeGREYBOYY
The Contenders: Page 2
Marilyn Manson is way more darker than Ozzy Osbourne. Really.
The Antichrist Superstar as he is referred to.
Not a metal band.
Some of his antichrist superstar stuff was dark, other than that really is just shock. Still one of my favourite bands, though.
One of his darker/dissonant songs is Tourniquet.
Glenn Benton is filled with pure hatred for Christianity. - Metalmaniakkk
Burzum higher than Cannibal Corpse? Just because he killed someone?
Burzum's riffs are dark and mysterious, especially in the early works. - GREYBOYY
Lead guitarist killed Mayhem's guitarist. 'enough said.
Just because he killed someone? We're talking about music here, not crimes or disgusting acts. - GREYBOYY
Easily one of the darkest bands there. The atmosphere is purely evil and I'm not too sure why CC is above, yeah CC has deranged album covers but death metal often doesn't truly create that dark, sinister mood to it. a band doesn't need to have intense blast beats to be "dark".V 1 Comment
Cannibal Corpse is gory, yes, but I would actually say bands like KoRn and Joy Division are darker, because their lyrics can apply to people living with abuse and depression. Cannibal Corpse lyrics are like a horror movie, while Joy Division and KoRn lyrics are more like a suicide note, so which one is darker?
Have you seen their album art? It's enough to make you puke your guts out.
Not scary at all. Very bland radio rock with brutal death metal elements. Might as well say Nickelback is the darkest band ever.
There are much more darker bands out there - MetalmaniakkkV 3 Comments
A really Anti-Christian band. But they're surprisingly not devil worshipers.V 1 Comment
Not dark as in scary, but more like dark as in depressing.
You wanna know how depressing their music truly is? Listen to anything off of their self titled debut album and One-X or Life Starts Now and you'll see why they deserve to be on here.
Their darkest songs (in my opinion) are Animal I Have Become, It's All Over, World So Cold, Get Out Alive, Scared, and Overrated.
They're super good at putting emotion in their music. You can really feel the hard feeling in the melody of their songs.V 2 Comments
These guys expressed there true pain in their music.
Try to listen to Nutshell or Down in a Hole without crying.
Probably the most depressing band of all time.
Not a metal band.V 2 Comments
Hiding in the shadows, that's where Tool hides! You probably haven't heard of it, but when you hear them, the truth is revealed! These guys are some of the darkest here, much darker then My Chemical Romance and Slipknot for sure!
Songs like Schism, Prison Sex, Jimmy, Right in Two, and Pushit are all extremely dark and depressing
Surprised these guys are so low on the listV 1 Comment
Should be higher! - GreenDayFan21
Charlotte Sometimes, One Hundred Years, A Strange Day and Lullaby are some of the creepiest and Darkest songs I've ever heard. Why aren't they higher on this list?
Pornography is one of the darkest albums
Don't forget Disintegration and Bloodflowers
Greatest Lovesongs Vol. 666 and Venus Doom alone make for some pretty dark records. The overall pathos is somewhat eaten away by their lighter records, though.
I wouldn't quite call muse a dark band. However, they do indeed have their dark moments (Space Dementia, Apocalypse Please, Hysteria etc)
