The Deezer catalog is like one big music family packed together. On one hand you’ve got your average family members who are annoying but bearable. Then there are the weirder members, like the cousin who only eats chicken nuggets or the aunt who collects her dead cat’s hairs in a jar. You kind of like them but in a 2-days-a-year-only kind of way. We have our own fair share of wonderful odd balls too. So for Halloween, we’ve picked out some of the freakiest stuff we could find. Welcome to the dark side of our streaming catalog.
5- And the award for the artist with the grimmest artwork goes to…
Cattle Decapitation – Humanure
It’s hard to know whether to laugh or cry tears of blood. The cover is like a drug-fuelled version of this scene in Disney’s Mickey & the Beanstalk.
4- Get your Halloween kink on
Ever heard of “witch house”? It’s a occult-inspired gloomy micro-genre of electronic music, which actually sounds quite lascive and erotic in a weird “this is making me uncomfortable sort of way”. The droning repetition, haunting rhythms and ethereal vocals give Halloween the kooky sexual edge it needs. The genre is actually widely praised and worth listening to even when the trick-or-treating is over.
3- Turn your Halloween party into an angst-fest
This is what a Halloween party in Hell would sound like. The album is full-on creepy-dark and really does sound like the sort of album recorded in Gotham’s Arkham Asylum by the world’s biggest and most dangerous loonies.
2- ASMR for serial killers.
Even psychopaths need to chill out occasionally to some binaural sound. Check out the “Manley sounds of a nutsack”, it’s positively terrifying.
