    Some of these I just find comically not even remotely dark, or just a bit too cheesy to be truly 'dark.'

    Silencer - Death Pierce Me?
    Woods of Ypres?
    Godspeed You! Black Emperor?

    Not that those bands are happy, but I definitely don't get a sense of 'bleakness' and 'hopelessness' from them.

    No hopelessness or bleakness from Silencer? Really?

    Some of the darkest, depressing and haunting shit ever recorded in my opinion.

    It just ends up being excessively comical because of how over the top it is. It defeats any purpose it may have had, just can't take it seriously.

    Me too. It's not really negative as in "hate everything the world sucks etc." In that case, anything by Antaeus is fucking negative a hell. Violent and negative.

    The album that allows me to vent the most during times of extreme negative/aggression ect is Conqueror-War Cult Supremacy.Hands down the single most violent/bloody minded album ever.

    Take one shot at it with a purely open mind, accepting the vocals are absurd. It becomes incredible when you can creep into the awkward shrieks.

    Also adding both haarp albums. "Husks" and "The Filth". Both are godddamn filthy.

    Will Haven - El Diablo earns a place on here, too. I think this was the album that led me into metallic hardcore and eventually post-metal because it was so ridiculously unhappy.

    Oh yeah haarp are cathartic for sure, amazing that the singer hasn't blown out a lung yet. Also, loving the attention Lord Mantis are getting around here as of late. Pervertor rules.

    Godflesh 'streetcleaner' is classic.

    This is my drinking soundtrack. Perfect album to get obliterated with.

    Going with the "wanting everything around you to die" criteria I'd say off the top of my head:

    Godfleash - Streetcleaner
    Napalm Death - Smear Campaign
    Grief - Dismal (Really I could have gone with any Grief album but this one in particular stands out in the miserable department)
    Dread - Buried In Narcissism
    Dragged Into Sunlight - Hatred For Mankind
    Rollins Band - Hard Volume
    Mourning Beloveth - A Murderous Circus

    Fleurety tops Silencer in the shriek department. I can't listen to either tbh.
