Piano, strings, and pulsing drums in a dark, creepy sort of setting. Not much else to say, as I prefer to let listeners tell me what they see when they listen. :D

Has anyone told you that these creppy songs make great video game background music?

Sounds like "Silent Hill"

What struck me was the fact that this song has a very massive "Silent Hill" feeling, and it really does sound like the game's soundtrack, exactly the same instruments and sounds, and most of all, it has the same, simple, but creepy sensation to it. All of it sounds a lot like the game, only detail is the drum beat that doesn't sound like the game's music. But enough of "Silent Hill", let's get back to your song; honestly it's good, but it's not really my type of thing. None the less this song is perfect for any horror themed game or film/animation... it's fucking creepy too... brrr...
Ok, scene time:

The scene takes place in the middle of the woods, where there's a lonely wooden house. Rain pours heavily from the dark grey sky. Inside the house is a man, who has lived a terrible tragedy. He lost his son a couple years back, who died from a disease which was impossible to cure. Since then his life has never been the same, life had become pointless to him. After his wife had left, filled with despair, he decided to go out and live all alone, away from the rest of the world. Since then he lives out in the woods, where rain pours all day, every day, and where nobody comes down to see him.
But one day, as thunder was roaring in the air and rain falling powerfully like usual, he hears a knock at the door. At first, he believes it's just the thunder, but there's another knock. He slowly walks to the door, and after waiting for a few seconds, opens it. He then sees another man outside, wearing a long black rain coat, and who's head is covered by a hood. "What do you want?" he asks. After waiting a while, the man in the rain coat answers from a deep voice: "Don't believe other people's lies.". Intrigued, the man asks "What do you mean?". After another moment of silence, then the man in the rain coat says:
"Your son is still alive." and disappears into the fog and rain.
The man, then stays at his door step, not knowing what to say, not knowing what to do. He just stays there, alone once again, not knowing what to believe...


Excellent Ambience

Excellent - I use Newgrounds a lot to look for music, tends to be better quality than anywhere else; as yours proves. After glancing through a few of yours I've decided this is my favourite. =)
Keep it up, this one would work well over a subtle character video I reckon.

This is just -SEX-! I need a smoke now. lol
Woah, dude. This is really good. I'm very impressed, and the name is very fitting.
I can just see, a school house terroized by some crazy lunatic with a axe. Or some obseessed husband brutaly killing his wife, kids then himself in a fit of crazyness! This is pretty epic. If this doesn't make it to the top- peole need to open their ears and listen to good stuff! You got ALL of my stars and respect. Bravo!
