The 7-9-5.
I came up with a chord with an identical formula the other day.
Root - perfect 5th - minor 6th

It's like the most melancholy chord there is before you pass into dissonance.

How about we try submitting our most dissonant and atonal discoveries.

Unanything, I'd love to hear what some other people have come up with. Those are about the extent of what I've got as far as twisted sounding chords. There are some others, but I think they're just varients of the ones I've already posted.

Some bands that use similar chords that I like include Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice, Craft, Deathspell Omega, Mutiilation, and Blut Aus Nord (though I think they use a lot more to create their hellish sound...like fretless guitars and bass).

Leviathan. I want to hear them.
Before I'd heard of them, that's what my band was called.
We do transcendental death metal.
There are two Leviathans in history.
One is the black metal band then there was this Leviathan from Colorado in the USA. They were a prog' power metal band. Both had rather mystical concepts in their music, as do we.

But I'd still like to hear everyone else's ideas.
How selfish it is to assume. And you can create your own after you've read this thread, of course, then post.

You're right, there was a Leviathan from Colorado in addition to the black metal Leviathan from San Francisco, (awesome one-man band of Wrest) but there was also one from:

New York - Death/Thrash - Included Chris Barnes of Cannibal Corpse - Vox and Jeff Juszkiewicz of Malevolent Creation - guitar

A Heavy Metal band somewhere in the US that released a self-titled album in 1999.

One from Turkey.
Spain.
Germany.
Sweden.
Argentina.

Not to mention Children of Leviathan, Opus Leviathan, and Leviathane. So the name's obviously been quite abused, hehe.

Transcendental death metal? Sounds interesting, kinda like a more death metal version of Disembowlment? I'd like to hear what your band sounds like. Got a name?

Still looking foward to everyone else's ideas as well.

Do you hammer onto the 7 after a bit there?
Quite a melancholy number there.
It's simply F minor.

I like alternating between the variants of the minor chord.

D[----------]
A[----------]
F[------3--3]
C[8---5-5---]
G[5-1-1-5-1-]
D[3-3-3-3-3-]

Everyone should know DSO's Si Monumentum album anyways.


That must be Second Prayer.

I myself like to use a lot sick and twisted chords. But mostly I like to breed minor third with diminished fifth and minor second in various ways I can find.

There's some real gems in there.

The first. And add9 with a hit of dissonant melancholy at the top.
The second is quite nice. A minor chord with a flattened fifth and a sharpened octave. It would be a very melancholy chord. It's got a major 2nd interval at the top that would complement any melody in it.

My leadwork usually ends up with tons of horrific chords in it apart from the fact I change scales all the time and create my own on the spot as well. I can implement them really quickly too. I was sliding around minor 2nd dyads the other day. 'Destroyer Of Melodies' is my name for that chord.
I'm just a weirdhead.

I've found this cool progression the other day.

A[------------------------------------]
F[------------------------------------]
C[9---6-------------------------------]
G[--------8---5-----------------------]
D[7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7--]
A[--------------------9---6---3---0---]

I think you can call the whole thing A diminished because of the pattern. Look closely!

That last bit's cool.
There's a certain satsifaction one may derive from large string skipping.
