Hey guys,

I'm getting into some dark classical music. Please recommend some good heavy symphonic classical music.

Cheers

i like Requiem for a Dream by Clint Mansell.

also theres O Frotuna from the Richard's ale commercial.

I'd say 20th century Russian composers are a good start. Shostakovich for sure. Check out the typical classical pieces like Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, Belioz's Symphony Fantastique, etc. I personally really like John Adam's Fearful Symmetries if you don't mind some minimalism.

Dark, heavy, symphonic music........Sounds like Late Romantic era.
Gustav Mahler is my man, also Anton Bruckner, Verdi, and of course Wagner.
The Russians are always a good choice, too.

The first classical piece I really got into was fantasia in D minor. I'm not sure I know too much "dark" classical music, try Dies Irae by Mozart. Choir and symphony. Sounds very awesome.
