I'm interested in albums that are thematically about death. Anything heavily inspired or influenced by death as a concept/idea, or that evokes feelings related to dying/death/death anxiety/etc. I was reading interviews with PORTAL and also DEATHSPELL OMEGA and both bands seemed to indicate death was either something they wanted to manifest sonically or had a role in their creative process.

I'd rather not confine myself to just metal so any genre will do, noise, metal or otherwise.

Start with Brighter Death Now and Atrax Morgue.

Further afield, there's Elaine Radigue's "Trilogy of Death".

Just with those names alone you can be set up for life.

The first couple Archon Satani are to these ears of a distinctly morbid disposition- better re-collected in the Virgin Birth cd reissue.

Controlled Death - Hymn to the Eternal Death

I can't believe I forgot this!  Pretty much all Controlled Death is great and perfect for this topic.  This one is a personal favorite as well: https://www.discogs.com/release/21779395-Controlled-Death-Death-Synth-Box

CON-DOM - How Welcome Is Death to I Who Have Nothing More to Do but Die

Amen!


It is excellent album in its harsh cold realistic perspective, where death has no "cool" qualities. Its the last howls of demented patients just hoping to die, human remains that are alive, but weak and without purpose. Disease and decay, that isn't about pile of corpses and dreams of what awaits "on the other side".

These experiences of real life sheer misery are good substance and one angle to death, but that said, I think in noise there is this element that you find certain realism from absurdity of imagination. I probably said it elsewhere too, but like with death, one can look another classic topic of rough sound: Sex.  Would one want noise based on healthy relationship. What's that garbage? Of course many may find it funny that some socially awkward virgin is doing totally dehumanizing sexobject filth, but that emotion tends to be real and with consequences. Plenty of variation in degrees of obsessions and emotions, but in context of noise, outrageous and unrealistic lust of virgin could be vastly more interesting than something based on healthy relationship.

In death-noise, you can see the same. All those people who tend to deal with death and disease in their life (like work), it is real and it may be personal in some ways, but also largely routine. Something that goes beyond the banal level what we all can sooner or later see, the content that is something else, seems very valid for me. In short, pile of corpses on tape cover, rarely disappointment. Even if done by people who approach it from seemingly funny angle, like virgins approach sex noise.

won't it be quicker to list the ones which aren't death-related?
