An all-star avant-garde lineup led by Aaron Novik made this spooky, but not too heavy metal album almost entirely on clarinet – guitar, bass, and keyboard sounds were created by playing clarinets through various amps and effects. Many of the choppy, tense instrumental passages would work perfectly as boss-level videogame soundtracks.
