I certainly agree with those two recommendations. And if you like This Heat, and are feeling adventurous, check out Virus: 



Or especially Ved Buens Ende if you're feeling more adventurous. ;)



But for REAL darkness there's:




Thanks. I hadn't heard any of those before. I especially liked Virus. Thumbs Up

...there's 3 others parts too Tongue

I think this whole album is pretty dark, and "evil." Even the lyrics are dark. Others have mentioned it already, but I also agree with Tago Mago. Like one person said, it was not meant to sound dark, but it really does come off as dark, especially Augmn and Peking O. I remembered listening to that for the first time and I felt so disturbed, but I was so tranced out by the music that I had to finish it. It is a little hard to get into. Hopefully this helps you out for what you are looking for. Smile

Just remembered. Morte Macabre - Symphonic Holocaust. From what you´ve listed, this should be right up your alley.
Great re-workings of old horror movie scores soaked in mellotron and a very Crimsonian feel to it.

There's a theme in César Francks organ piece "Grande pièce symphonique", in major key, which is tranquil but very grand, and profound. It couldn't be described by one word, such as "dark", but it gives me kind of an ominous feeling:
 
Try Coil. This could be frightening
 
If you like dark industrial electronic stuff, there is the "Silent Hill" videogames (1 and 2 in particular). This is a very good horror piece with a nice escalation. Maybe you want more harmonies and stuff, but you mentioned that you wanted music that give you the creeps, so..
 
This is a song from the Resident Evil videogame, which has great music.
It sounds similar to Art Zoyd, which I would recommend, I have "Faust" which is superb dark electronic avant-garde music.

Let me suggest this...I think it's both dark and evil.

A little more humility please. You're asking for people's help then ridiculing them for offering assistance.

I see many metal suggestions here, but Zeuhl is obviously the direction you should go for after devouring VDGG and King Crimson discography!
If you are not into Magma because of the vocals, try this modern instrumental Zeuhl/Avant stuff Thumbs Up

Okay - it's 2am here in the UK and I'm too tired to read through this thread to see who has offended who and why. I'm locking this down until I'm more awake. In the mean time, all should consider that (like anything "spiritual") while some people find "evil" to be a real other people don't.

This is one of the darkest and most evil songs ever recorded. It is a song about a child molester and killer.. The lyrics are in German, but here the translation. The beginning is blasphemous too, of course, because it was Christ who said "Let the children come to me". So here the lyrics:

Child Molester:

"You let the children come to me!
In white gowns and flowers in their hair
I took away their virginity,
I just can't tell you how lovely it was"!

(Mad laughter.).

Angry Crowd:

"Serve the Beautiful, the Good, the True,
Whip him, he is already quivering for it.
Let him experience the sweet pain;
 He so craves for disgrace and ignominy!

Child Molester:

"We danced ring-a-ring-a-roses
And sang a beautiful song.
The smallest girl started crying for her mother
I softly speared her with my member".

(Mad laughter)

Angry Crowd:
"Come thee all and look at him!
His head shaved bald, and still he smiles.
Let's get to work, it's easily done!
Hang him, the lusty moloch".

The final words, spoken into the megaphone, appear to be nonsense syllables; at least I can not recognize anything.

And here the music that goes with them:


I think you will all agree that this is exceptionally dark.

^^Disgusting enough to reduce Comus to a bunch of choirboys. Having read the lyrics, I don't even want to play it.

Thank you this is amazing!!! Lyrics are disturbing, but the song is awesome.

This is amazing! Reminds me a lot of King Crimson. Do you know any other bands that use Mellotron in a similar type of way?
