Hello

I am looking to expand a playlist of mine. So i am looking for slow melodic songs with depressive and/or existential lyrics.
Please note that i am not looking for 'glorious' ballads or any kind of inspirational/motivational songs/ballads.
The lyrics should be as close to soul crushing as possible.

A perfect example is Noumena's - Sundown
youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wk336AuU_9Q
and lyrics here
Spoiler: show
lyrics:
The past fortnight has been pointless struggling
To take this life of suffering a step closer to it's end
The last sundown, when the pain lies on the ground
It's the life I never found in the madness of day

[Chorus:]
Pain capture my heart
Because the dreams they talked about
Are the things I never found
In this tragedy called life
A forgotten sunrise
When the pain still lies inside
When the future tears my mind
All memories are lost
The conclusion, this road leads nowhere
And no one will ever care if I'll be here or gone

[Chorus]
This world is made of suffering
Five times more, still I never win
This is my life
And I'm not good at it
In turns they play this violin
This is madness that will never end
This is my life
And I'm not good at it
And the carvings on this naked skin
Are marks of tragedies within
This is my life
And I'm not good at it
When the hope and dreams will never end
It's the hardest thing to comprehend
That this is my life
And I'm not good at it


Another good example is Orphaned land's - The beloved's cry
youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNLQ9c_rdWc
lyrics:
Spoiler: show
My heart flies on her wings
Now I'm crying, the moon so red
Tomorrow shall be yet another hell
To the sun, the sky's soul is fed

Blows pass me
I'm down, them I do not feel
Nothing except the shadow is real

Why did she do it, why did she die?
How could she leave without saying goodbye?
She has proven my life to be just a lie

When sea waves crush, they hit me hard
But then I do not feel them
And then reality is no more real to me
I ask myself, should I end it now and join her at last?
I miss the cold embrace of lust
Nothing left, just a dust

When sea waves crush, they hit me hard
But then I do not feel them
And then reality is no more real to me
I ask myself, should I end it now and join her at last?
I miss the cold embrace of lust
Nothing left, just a dust
Nothing left, just a dust
Nothing left, my dearest love


I am aware of other requests for balads or slower songs or sad songs or something similar in these forums etc. I found some music that i can use but not that much. I've spent quite some time browsing through these forum threads. To conclude, I've found a few songs there but the majority of the request is supposed to make the listener feel better. I am looking for the exact opposite as I do like to sometimes take a dive in sadness and sorrow.

Also in an effort to unite all those entries under one roof i'll gather the aforementioned links here so the 'guide to sadness' can be complete and easily accessible.

Thank you very much, those are some great suggestions (happy face)

I liked the Hypocrisy and Katatonia songs, Fear Factory I'll have to listen again a few times.
Paradise Lost must contribute to this list no doubt but I don't like this song very much, not sure why.

Weird thing though, i was unable to track down Unspoken, it's not on youtube, google music nor spotify (sad face)
I will look it up again, maybe after some time it will become availiable!

Thanks again!
If any more come to mind feel free to share, they will be greatly appreciated!!

On top of my head

Anathema's mid period offered us songs like Forgotten Hopes and Regret wich i consider really great

A favorite of mine is Stangt PGA Semester by Lifelover, with it's lovely jazz beat

Noumena's Great Anonymous Doom may be not sad as the ones above, but the hopeless theme and the unusual waltz time makes ot a good candidate

I'm aware of the Great anonymous doom, yep.
Lifelover seems very interesting, too bad (for me anyway) that they write in swedish. I'll definitely listen to them more though. THANKS
I was never a big fan of Anathema (bar Serenades) so I can safely say I have never listened to their mid period, I'll get to it.

Thanks again

Aye, after you suggested it. That's a different kind of sad. I looked up the band (I am not into doomy stuff that much so I was not familiar with them). I will listen to them more sometime in the future i hope (my list is getting bigger and bigger).

Cheers

Inside your delicicious toast there are some songs I already knew and love, DT is one of my favourites bands lyrically and musically.
Anyhoo, some of these have a place in the playlist BUT that Mortiis track is just perfect. More of that please lol.

Cheers mate, thanks again

Katatonia are the undisputable (mainstream) kings of the kind of sad you describe. plenty of songs with that lyrical content... it's practically a meme:

Youtube: show


Sentenced too, they write songs about life going down the drain (that's an actual lyric of theirs)...

Alcest's lyrics are pretty much the same, but they're in french :/ and their music is mostly a bit more uptempo.

do you like doom? Candlemass' Solitude is spot on what you describe, Reverend Bizarre's "the hour of death" is about the withering of beauty, and "anywhere out of this world" is a suicide song... a little-known finnish band, Fall of the Idols, have some of the darkest lyrics ever...

Youtube: show


sample tracks:
Spoiler: show
Katatonia - Tonight's music
Sentenced - No one there
Alcest - autre temps
FotI - My home the gallows

They are on my 'to listen to" list, I've never given them proper attention, cool

I can understand the French language, so no problem there. The sample track is on the right path (happy face), I will check their rest of their work.

I am aware of Solitude, yes it is on spot for this current psychosynthesis. Doom is somewhat weird to me, some i like and some not. Fall of the Idols did the trick for me, 'My home the gallows' is really good. They'll get more attantion from me.
I came across Reverend Bizarre in another thread, yes those are good recomendations

Opus wrote:

I played the whole album (once more). Yes this is good stuff but not for this playlist I am getting together.

Thanks guys, you are really helpful. Have in mind that I actually listen what you suggest carefully (with the lyrics on the side ofc), even the songs/albums I already know. There are no bad recomendations, if something does not fit in this playlist it will in another!

Are you at all interested in listening to funeral doom? The only thing that may be off putting is that the vocals are sung rather slowly.

But there's a few great bands in here that can pull off these sort of existential, soul-crushing lyrics all over dreary emotional music. Especially with some of the newer bands.

Here's the song "Delirium" by Colosseum: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjRsuop5eoE

Great track, probably my favorite by the band.

Spoiler: show
Shadow of myself or was it god
There's voices in the walls all around
Mocking my weary distress
Duplicating memories of nowhere
Aching inside convulsive sleep
Foam and worms among broken glass
Absence of time, abrasive roar
Why do you feed me with needles...
Why?

Trial shall open now
The mirrors awaken
Breeding monsters, demons within
Judge is me transformed, multiplied

There's no place for me to rest anymore
Torn from inside, bleeding in vain

There's no place for me to live anymore
Trapped inside the wait for a dawn that's never here

Writhing in terror
They're coming for me
Demons of my sleep returning through the ages
Calling for anyone, but none will hear
There's nothing more but the pain
This neverending pain

I bid farewell to everything and cast my last breath
Final touch of pain remains my dearest and only friend


This next one might be a little more accessible with the faster beat and clean vocals. It's "Aeternus" by Doom:VS. This band used to be pretty hot a few years back, but in the absence of new material they've been kinda forgotten. Still pretty great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89WYc5J-vi4

Spoiler: show
Empty, so empty,
barren and cold.
Distant, so distant,
too far to reach.

Time slips away, I fall.
All I feel is pain, nothing more.
I cry in shame of knowing my faults
and nothing seems to help me anymore.

I fall...

Bitter, so bitter.
Life so sweet.

I break, I see, I suffer.
I grope, I fall, I die... for you.

I leave today, my life.
I slowly wither away.

I break, I see, I suffer.
I grope, I fall, I die... for you.

For you - I broke with tears.
For you - I loved for years.
Draining myself from everything.

For you - I opened the door.
For you - I gave it all up.
My life, my dream... everything.


So if you liked the above tracks, I want to put you to a real test: a full album with a singular concept. Slow from Belgium with their fifth release Oceans. While I could recommend other full albums by other bands, this not only is one of the most recent (2017) releases in the genre that really sounded spectacular but also is one intended by the artist to be listened to as a whole. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pzsxxkkh4eU

(consolidated lyrics from all five pieces)
Spoiler: show
Moving into deep waters / Wading in the dark / Limbs numb / Dim heart / Dim
The light in the distance / Last fragments of horizon / Gathered in my eyes / Turned to grey
Remaining rays of light fade / Emerge with the ocean for good

“This is not meant to bring you joy. This is not meant to give you any solace. This is the cold, ugly truth of what happens when we put off our rose-tinted glasses, or when they are violently ripped off our noses. May you find peace with this state of mind one day. May you embrace this pain and allow it to make you stronger. May this teach you how to turn this poison into an antidote.”

Cold cuts through my fingers / As I drag them over the surface / Punish them as I / Disturb the still waters
With one light touch I / Wrinkle all existence / Distort all future / Destroy all quiet / Send waves of confusion
Through these waters / Of life / Even the gentlest stroke / Causes harm
There's thunder afar / What have I become

I must go back but the soil has swallowed me whole
Trapped / Ripping flesh / In desperation / Salty waves / Lick my wounds
Icy needles / Sting my skin / Burning eyes / Swollen red
Breath / Turn into frigid clouds / Bitter tears / Drown me wide awake
I must escape / But the soil / Has swallowed me Whole

Drawn towards the nothing / One we shall become
These dark seas now feel almost / Comfortable / I give in
May this darkness absorb me

Whispers from far under / Singing from below
Lured me into this ocean grave
No man strong enough / To brave / This storm
Here my remains drift / For everyone to see
This wreck / My failure
Begone with the ebb

I read in one of your posts above that you're not into doom; doom though is really about soul-crushingness... Warning is a good rec in the style. Thinking of The Gault as well.

Skinny Puppy wrote some really depressing/ numbing songs. But I guess this is totally not the scene you'd like to explore. :D

Necrotic Trust, Leakh are two slightly industrialized doomy projects that could fit the request.

Listening to the Noumean song you posted, I see the moods your after; I can suggest you Antimatter in the same vein, their latest album is very good, the vocalist really shines in there:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9zVawCwvy8&t=2387s

The Wounded/ Sunset is another wonderfully sad album, a bit "glorious" at times, admitedly:

I already had a listen my mediterranean friend!
I am familiar with Swallow the sun but not Pantheist. I had a quick 'research' they seem cool. I think I'll find material here. Cheers
(Wilytank also suggested some funeral doom bands (i am getting there), i guess it makes sense)

Nice, I like the combination of DM with gloomy lyrics. I will have a more thorough dive in them at some point too (I wish I had more time)

Nice one! I liked the combination of BM with industrial, interesting outcome.

Seems like you guys want to get me into Funeral doom... I've tried it in the past but I could not get into it, maybe I started with the wrong groups, I don't know. As a general rule I like faster tempos, a lot faster. Anyhow now that I am looking for different things it seems that i enjoy it better. I have already listened to some songs and bands that were mentioned in various threads and next I'll check out your and Wilytank's recommendations. I am willing to explore my musical boundaries, I am not sure if they can be expanded though.

Glad you enjoy it! You might get some value out of their second album, which I'd argue is some of the most mentally exhausting death metal you'll ever hear even if it's more of an emotional rollercoaster than depressing like the song I linked earlier.

It is a bit off putting at first, yes. I listened to it a few times, I did like the melodies especially the keyboards on the background. I can't say I hated it but I can say I liked better the second one by Doom:VS.

That Antimatter track is good. Maybe I should give the whole album a listen.
I played The Wounded album also, It has some great moments but it also has something that puts me off. I can't pin it down yet.

I liked Leakh better, maybe i'll find something for the list there. You are correct about the Skinny Puppy, I wouldn't like to explore that path, would it be easy to throw a few song titles? If yes, cool, if not, also cool!

I was not aware of that Samael track, it is a little faster so I am not sure if it fits the mood. I'll have to test it in 'real sadness' conditions.

Cool stuff, though this is not material that fit in my "sad sad songs" lists, yet it is stuff i can enjoy anyway. I will take a dive in The Chasm at some point.

Thank you all, for the recommendations, I'll keep exploring them. Feel free to post if anything else comes in mind.

To expand a bit on doom, try this funeral doom song, it's that kind of depressive music I'm thinking of that could fit your request:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UQGSp_s9oE
And this original doomy "batcave" project, The Gault:

Cool i'll check it out, I had a listen of the Gault, i think you mentioned it in a previous post.
Thanks for your insight on doom, I will explore it further at my own pace.

Funeral's "The Architecture of Loss" fits the bill I'd say, as soul-crushing as they come, lyrically.

When you go out of town do you ever think of me?
The poison you put in your veins might make you share my fate.
I am so scared that I am shaking all day long.
Answer to the great mystery, most likely I'll be gone.


Also The 3rd and the Mortal's "Silently I Surrender."

Silently I surrender
The lack of hope is driving me under
I walk away
To seek comfort in the dark.

Oddly enough I am aware of that Funeral song!
They have a quality that keep me from fully enjoying them, I think that sometimes their lyrics could be a little more polished. Maybe it is just me.

This one sounds cool! I will check their music further.
Thanks!

Think I've got a good one for you mate, let me know what you think.
I would never kill myself but if I did it would be at the end of this song.

Damn, I know this song but for some reason I have never really paid attention to the lyrics. Thanks mate for the "one under my nose". These "new" lyrics make it better!

Aye man same here, only my song would be my perfect example in this thread Sundown by Noumena. I like the picture they paint.

Thanks again!

A German post-punk song with the translation below, probably doesn't have the same impact if you don't understand the words directly.

Spoiler: show
Do not worry, child
Father is coming back soon
It's already so late, my child
Father will surely be lucky today
There's nothing wrong with my child
Go upstairs and seek sleep
Go up and dream of me, my child
And take a dream from him ...
Do not worry...
What are you still standing in the hallway, my child
So do not be afraid
Nothing has happened yet, my child
They have it under control
Come on, my child
I feel so alone
What am I supposed to do, my child?
I feel so alone...
Oh do not ask me again, my child
You do not want to hear it
Nothing happened, my child
Father was lucky
Oh, do not hurt me, child
It hurts terribly .....
Father will never come back .....
Do not worry!

Spoiler: show
Boring doubt, bitter fear
The moon kisses my mind
Oh, I have such a longing
My skin is so cold
Like the glass in my hand
Sleep is unthinkable
I am dreaming and yet awake
Try to sink doubt
And this question: what comes next?
Foolish thinking or is it possible?
I know what I want, but the stake is high
Doubted so much and always wanted
Desperate in life, love cursed
Always could die anytime
Because we are constantly in danger
A small heart in shards
And nothing is as it was before
Nothing to lose, the world is empty
Am totally twisted and sink even more
Show me the place in reality
It's so close, it's too late
If you ever said
Please do never leave me alone anymore
I would dare everything
Always there, forever yours

It is true I would prefer songs that I can understand the words directly. I will give them a try anyways.
Thanks!
