I don't really think anybody here including me really gives a sh*t if you think you are a genius?


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

It had nothing to do with Humility it had to do that my first post asked for music, and then he ridiculed me for asking for evil to begin with, and then telling me to go read a book when this is a music forum not a book forum.

Try Bubu - Anabelas
I look up, I'm almost blinded
by the warmth of what's inside me
and the taste that's in my soul,
but I'm dead inside as I stand alone...

^Are you sure, dark and evil are not words I'd use to associate with Anabelas?

On similar lines, Gnidrolog might be a good try, they certainly have a bit of a dark feel to me.

Yes, but he also asked for something "similar" to KC or VdGG... I almost wrote Gnidrolog too...

Hi,
 
Here's a small list ... some of it I am not sure it is/was that progressive. I had to scramble me brains to remember some of these.
 
Black Widow - The first three albums were all about the dark arts and the occult. Had touches of jazzy material as well.
 
Coven - I think this was a California outfit that put together a couple of albums based on their very own stuff and beliefs. I can not ascertain its depth or validity (don't feel wualified to do so!), but at times the lyrics are not ... the usual stuff we hear.
 
Leviathan - I came across a review of this album somewhere, and I think this was an American band, but as much as I have the album, I have not heard, or checked it out, enough to tell you more. I do remember the rock music being fairly strong.
 
Plus - The Seven Deadly Sins. Presumably this was done by the same person that did Thunderclap Newman (Something in the Air). There are 7 songs about each one of the Sins. Would probably be progressive in that the songs are all different ... but the wording, for my tastes, fairly conventional and sometimes theatrical where it doesn't need to be. Great fun for playing on that Halloween show, btw ... because it comes off weird!
 
Lucifer - I have the LP but have to listen to it again. If I remember it correctly it was an interesting experiment through the synthesizer and a strange concoction of sounds. Don't wuote me on this one. Haven't heard it in some time.
 
Annubian Lights - The first album with Nik Turner reading various Egyptian this and that. While not quite "dark" or "evil", the whole thing in the trance mode is kinda strange, and sometimes ... weird. But enjoyable. Lyrics are not that clear, but there are some.
 
Already mentioned some of the other albums in a previous post. But there are a couple of things that are very hard to discuss that I have not been able to determine a whole lot about. One of them comes from Nepal, and is a lot of music that is used in Funeral Dirges of old. Some of the music was used in a BBC special a few years back, and most of it is down right scary, sounds strange and is very dark, even for my tastes ... i somehow have this idea that this might be akin to some of the music we might find in the Bardo level ... way out there ... but that might be a bit too weird to discuss here.
 
Hope this helps.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Has anyone mentioned Jacula/Antonius Rex?

Jacula's (I think) 1969 debut `In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum' (pretty sure that's the title!) is one of my all-time favourite albums.

Pretty much nothing but dark overwhelming church organ, very basic drumming, occasional Latin dialogue over the top, and a few electric guitar solos.

Very monotonous and hypnotic.

Highly recommended

I highly recommend Agalloch(I dont know if anyone has mentioned this band yet..). They are very 'dark and evil'. Try out ashes against the grain and Mantle. Superb albums. They fall into folk/prog/post rock/ and some black metal elements.

Some Porcupine Tree stuff(In Absentia), and Opeth. 

This should start you off.

Great topic. Excuse me for being late. I discovered some great bands here. I would like to add Gnaw Their Tongues. They are surely something that people into dark, evil and menacing music should check out.

Interesting coincidence, I used to have the LP and hadn't heard it in decades, so I dug it up on Youtube.  

Good Heavens, this Mort Garson chap was a genius!  Quite dark also, check out his song "Incubus"....the entire LP is available on YouTube.
