Hi there, stumbled upon your thread, (sorry i know its a bit old) but if you are still looking for free ambient music for your haunt, I composed a cd using Audacity, by taking everyday sounds and slowing, reversing, mixing and mashing that I recorded, and some i got from freeware places and made IMO a pretty decent ambient mix CD. You can download it for free at:
i bought a wolf music CD one time. I thought it would relax me as I conjured images of nightfall in the snowy mountains with the sound of woves in the distance. It had the opposite effect. It was annoying and I felt like I had to keep letting the dog out.
Your request was confusing: "I am looking for some atmospheric horror music, not musical".
There are many horror sound effect albums available. Here are a few that I own:
1. 3D Thunderstorm Environment. Darwin Chamber. Available online from iTunes. A real thunderstorm with rain. 30 minutes.
2. Spooky Scary Sounds. Martha Stewart Living. You wouldn't think this was Martha's bag, but it's good! One continuos cut, with beating heart, thunder, rattling chains, screams, hoot owls, cackling witch, snarling wolf, ticking clock, tolling bell, etc. 40 minutes.
3. Halloween Horror. No artist credited. One continuous cut, with wind, footsteps, creaking door, snarling hound, panting, haunted piano, squeaking bat, ghostly laughter, haunted organ, crying baby, shrieks, wailing, etc. 73 minutes.
Now, if you do want some kind of music, just not strong on melody, and with sound effects, Midnight Syndicate is for you. Of the many MS albums, Born of the Night might be a good place to start.
ruggerz, I think I know exactly what your looking for. Look up an artist me the name of "Lustmord" and the album is called "Heresy". This is some of the most insane ambient sounds I have ever heard. You can download from itunes or buy online I think. It also has groans and howls. Let me know what you think!
Just checked them out,holy crap they are amazing !! i love Heresy & Dark places in the earth, haven't heard all albums,
but they sound like an excellent dark foreboding haunt background sound tracks ! Thanx for the tip MrNightmare.
Me thinks we found some great new stuff to use this year............
Thanks Dark Lord! I was intoduced to Lust Mord by a friend and since then, its the only music I use in my haunt, espcially for areas that you are needing that extra "DARK" touch. With the right PA system cranked up, It sounds absolutly Chilling!!!
I read a forum post today where a person mentioned that the large professional haunt where he used to work loops Black Mass by Lucifer (Mort Garson) in their haunt, and it is a big hit. You can find this recording free online sometimes.
Hi everyone, I'm Mike Norvak from Mexico City. I'm doing an electronic homage to horror and suspense movies, videogames and music from the past, specially those from the decade of 80's and early 90's like The Thing, Zombies ate my neighbors, Alien, Doom or Poltergeist.
I was planning to release...
There was a record my elementary school played back in the early 80's with Halloween songs on it. It was a 78 I do believe. I had went back to the school when I was in high school and borrowed it and made a tape of it. Of course I lost the tape about 7 years later and the records are all gone...
What are your favorite Halloween jams? I like the 30s Dracula soundtrack, AFI’s All Hallows’ Eve EP and all of the Aquarium Drunkard Halloween playlists.
If you like weird spooky music I also have this:
Please share your thoughts!
