Looking for Metal that sounds evil or dark. I don't mean just "having lyrics about those things", I mean "Metal that sounds evil!". Metal where the music alone could make you quiver in fear, or feel haunted, or some such thing. Open to pretty much any genre, apart from -core or -grind genres.

A lot of old Mercyful Fate/King Diamond has an evil feel to it.

The album Hate by the Sinister has an evil vibe to it.

Sect Pig
Infester
Nuclear Death
Menace Ruine
Aevengelist
Muknal
Teitanblood
Morpheus Descends
Dragged Into Sunlight

Too bad you're not open to goregrind though. I was gonna recommend Catasexual Urge Motivation which puts a lot the bands I mentioned to shame.

Sadistic Intent's Resurrection is the most evil death metal I've ever heard. Give it a try.

There have been several much like-minded threads on this very subject before.
I think I post the same recommendations each time this pops up, here's three of them:

Amon - Feasting the beast demo '87
Mystifier - Goetia
Demoncy - Joined in darkness

I'd recommend Swallowed's "Lunarterial." The whole album has a dark feel to it. The album artwork is very sinister too.
