Before The Dawn - My Darkness
Yeah, all Swans are extremely negative...I assume llama was only considering the albums that are negative in that hatred-towards-mankind sense.
With a band name like "Facedowninshit" and an album called "Nothing Positive Only Negative" I really though it was gonna be a case of a band trying too hard, but uh... yeah. This is some EHG level shit here.
Hocico - Sangre Hirviente
Discharge - Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing
Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
Ulver - Nattens Madrigal
Aborym - With No Human Intervention
there's just a certain vibe those albums have that's perfect for when I'm disgusted in myself and everything around me.
I see why you would mention that era, ofc. It's a completely different vibe - more hateful than desolate.
Daxx Riggs (formally of Acid Bath) put out "We are Night Sky" in 2006 under the band name Deadboy & the Elephantmen. Not your prototypcial metal CD, but extremely dark and stripped down music. Give it a listen if you can find it.
Chelsea Wolfe. Not sure to call her non metal or black metal but her music is dark.
Malevolent Creation - The Ten Commandments
Vio-Lence - Eternal Nightmare
Nachtfalke - Doomed To Die
X-Fusion - Rotten To The Core
Velvet Acid Christ - Fun With Knives
I also have a tendency to play L7's Shitlist on repeat.
NINE INCH NAILS - THE FRAGILE (LEFT)
I dunno, if we're going NIN I gotta put my vote behind Downward Spiral. The climax to "Eraser" still gets me.
Looking at both albums as a whole, for this topic, I disagree. Its definitely one of my favorite Nails albums (obviously), but TDS just seems more dark and morbid, not so negative. Ofcourse there are a few songs that are exceptions, but to me it seems The Fragile is so pungent with loathing and despair...Oh, and ofcourse heroin.
These three for sure. And good call on Jesu. I haven't heard Infinity but their Conqueror album is great bad mood music.
Another one to add to my list would be Bethlehem's Dictius Te Necare.
Infinity is fantastic and I always point out that album as a prime example of Jesu not going downhill after Conqueror. It's a great album to put on and just lie down and zone out too.
Resurrection because dammit I love this thread and want more. Haven't found any winners lately that I can think of though.
Fuck! Nice bump! I forgot about this thread.
I've been listening to a lot of Anathema's Death/Doom material. That stuff is pretty crushingly dark and negative. Actually even some of their post death/doom stuff is pretty negative. Alternative 4 comes to mind.
Eyehategod and early Godflesh are misanthropic as fuck.
#1 I don't have days where I want everything around me to die.
#2: How the hell are bands like Before the Dawn,Katatonia, or October Tide getting mentioned here? I love their stuff, and don't get that at all.
Now, if I want to start feeling depressed (not the same as what was requested in the OP), nothing has that effect like Warning - Watching from a Distance. Still never finished that whole album.
