Hey thanks for this - awesome stuff

Antichrist Superstar and Holy Wood are really fucking good dark themed albums by Marilyn Manson. Mechanical Animals is also a fantastic album but it is much less "dark".
Mechanical Animals just reminds me of David Bowies Ziggy Stardust.
August in Thorns is writing material...

Nine Inch Nails is the best one.

Hmm. Tool, without a doubt, A Perfect Circle has some moments. Joy Division on their 'Closer' album, Radiohead and Placebo emulate that vibe a bit, but they aren't dark, merely apathetic/melancholic. Alice in Chains' heavier stuff, especially the 'Dirt' album more than anything else, some Nirvana too, specifically on 'In Utero'. There's a really great dark atmospheric band called FVNERALS. In a similar vein, check out a few atmospheric black metal bands, Kres and Kalmankantaja are the ones that come most immediately to mind. Also, searching through post-rock is a good bet if you can find your way around all the light-hearted EITS-wannabes. Audrey Fall is a good one, Sun Devoured Earth, Slint (Steve Albini's genius reflects on their 'Spiderland' album) The Parlour Trick. More than all, check out Godspeed You! Black Emperor's 'F#A#infinity' because that album is soul devouring. In terms of the heavier, faster-paced stuff, there's Behemoth, DROPDEAD, Amebix, Converge, Rudimentary Peni, Scar The Martyr, Brutal Truth, Bring Me The Horizon (~2013), definitely give Of Mice & Men's 'The Flood: Reissue' a listen, Oceano is also a great example, they balance between the heaviest death core to exist and sudden slow instrumentals that fuck you up. Bathory is a really good source in terms of their later material such as Blood, Fire, Death'. Black Sabbath's original self-titled album. Throbbing Gristle and practically any industrial. Raein is pretty bleak at times (not much anymore). City of Caterpillar, Circle Takes The Square, Loma Prieta and pg.99 as well. Celtic Frost, Venom. The Jesus and Mary Chain (debatably). The Jesus Lizard had a great track called 'Valentine' off their 1996 self-titled EP. StoneSour's self-titled EP. Suicide Silence's 'The Cleansing'. Depeche Mode's 'Violator' and Echo & The Bunnymen's 'Ocean Rain', Ian Mackaye's side-bands 'Fugazi', 'The Evens' and 'Embrace'.

You didn't actually just call Fugazi his "side-band". You clearly did not do that.

Soory, but Ian Mackaye will always be synonymous with Minor Threat, no matter how short of a time they were around for or how many albums Fugazi had released.

Uh, and that is decided by whom? I know you're obsessed with hardcore, hence I'm pretty sure you're actually aware of Fugazi's influence on the post-hardcore and alternative scene. Apart from that, it's pretty disrespectful towards an artist that you admire to limit his band of close to thirty years to a "side-band".
