Despite not being very dark this is in my imo an interesting piece from the baroque times when this sort of music was pretty unheard off, it starts with the entire D minor scale in one chord which is METAL AS ****. It's about the creation of the universe and elements

The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky is very nice. Not so much dark, just avant garde, with kind like listening to tech death in some parts.

Kind of reminds me of the intro of "Am I Evil".

Although pretty common, still dark.

Although dark is a bit vague. Do you mean like mysteriously dark, or angry dark, or melancholic dark, or perhaps cynical, which is dark with a hint of humor.

Anyway, mine is like a small story. It goes roughly like "stressed-jarring-cynical-sad-hope-uncertain" for me anyways.

So dark, it even has death in the title.

What makes it dark? Slow, minor keys?





I think Malmsteen works some of this into one of his classical solos

The slow funeral march movement of Beethoven's Eroica is also extremely dark. It has one of my favourite fugues ever.

French Baroque music has a lot of very dark moments. Lully's Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme has some pretty cool movements. That Rebel piece posted earlier is incredible.

The 3rd Act of Medée starts off innocently enough, but gets very unsettling:

(EDIT: specifically, from 22:38, but from 13:25 onwards it's incredible)

From the 20th Century, there's obviously loads, but, Bartok's Duke Bluebeard, and his Divertimento for Strings immediately come to mind.
