Ok A lot of the music I write is about creepy stuff so obviously I need a sound to reflect that. I've already got two delays to help enhance the atmospheric quality, but I'm looking for other things. I don't want to change my tone, the tone I have is fine. I"m just looking for some pedals to help add to the sound. So what pedals do you guys suggest to really help bring out the creepy atmosphere?

It's not necessarily the tone or sound itself that makes it creepy but what you play. Try doing a dual guitar part or guitar and keyboard and arrange it so that it will be slightly dissonant in the parts you want to sound extra creepy. And there is my two cents.

A good reverb pedal, like a Holy Grail. Maybe a looper, so you can layer your delays or just experiment with stuff. Possibly a Line 6 synth or the EHX synth, for finky effects and low, odd synth tones.

An E-bow could be fun
or a floyd rose and alot of feedback

Already covered on that. i have a keyboard, and a looping pedal that I use to layer stuff up. I"m just looking for something to add a little edge.

EDIT: on topic about the keyboard organ tones are a must for the ultra creepy stuff

ebow, cello bow, washy reverbs in conjunction with your delays, single coils or p-90s in your guitars (I find they're better for atmospheric stuff), delay/looper like the Line 6 DL4.

if you play with a lot of gain, I've always thought choruses (plural - chori?) makes distorted guitar sound creepy

Yeah they do work for that. I've done it with my CE-2. Works best with a lot of depth and low rate.

All the stuff I write is clean. Sometimes the solos have distortion so I will have to try that.

vibrato pedals can sound pretty eerie if you want them to.
Gibson SG Standard + 18volt EMG-81 & 85

Flanger.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
