What do you guys think is the most creepy, haunting, sounding chord? This would be for a metal song I'm writing, but used in an acoustic style riff. Any suggestions?

That actually sounds pretty cool. Would that be an E5#11?

That's a pretty cool chord. It's an E major add 11 without the 3rd. Keep em coming though!

Try violating the key as much as you can if you're looking for creepy. Like this, it's 2 fully diminished 7th chords a semitone apart played broken and repeat them a few times. They have no diatonic function but if you want creepy then follow along these lines.

Listen to Opeth for creepy chords combined with acoustic riffs!
Mostly the Damnation album
Edit:And also play it, to get what you're looking for

I meant a chord with a few minor 2nd intervals in there to make it "creepy"

It can't be a major chord without the 3rd that's what defines it as major. E5b5 or E5#11 is probably be the description
