Trick’or’Treatin’ Before Dark: Fright Night (Nevermore)

Jeremy Hellwig October 26, 2011 Music 5,467 Comments

If you have ever thought seriously about what kind of music is perfect for a haunted house, you probably already know that there really is quite a range of great options.  In addition to ambient creaking and moaning, there is of course the option of outright atmospheric creepiness.  There is also the option of just blasting any music loud enough that it jars and disorients the participants, especially if it is already kind of intense.  Take this scene for example.  You could also trap someone in the haunted house with no possible escape for an extended period of time, and make them listen repeatedly to an infamously annoying song by a later incarnation of that band, and that would be horrifying in its own way.  Or you can go in between, with a song that is both creepy and oddly cheerful.  One such creepy synth-pop gone bad song that is actually enjoyable, and that you will be humming for the rest of the day (assuming you didn’t click on the previous link to an even more earwormingly catchy song) is “Fright Night (Nevermore)” by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.  The title of the song is even Halloweenish, and the band has the word “haunted” in its name.  Listen to (or look up) the lyrics and you will find this is quite the Halloween anthem.
