And I wanna say, as tight as he is for posting such crazy esoteric mp3s on a regular basis, I disagree with the blogger's main point here: these recordings, by themselves, are genuinely creepy even without context. The disconnect is definitely there. The recording quality, the reverb, the Danzig vocals... he sounds like Scott Walker or Nick Cave but without any intentional pretenses of being scary. In fact the reason it sounds scarier than any of those guys do is that the pretense is one of innocence. This combination conveys obvious sadness, delusion, and insanity.
Esp. the first sample in the second link

  1. Yeah that guy is def. trying to make an argument for Metal and Rap. You're right about the music, its creepy stuff.
