Evil recs?

I am looking for music that sounds sinister and evil. I don't mean evil in any obvious or necessarily even metal way, more of an atmospheric or melodic evil. I'm not looking for evil lyrics, mostly just a menacing atmosphere. This line of inquiry led me to a bunch of the occult rock revival stuff, but it's not quite what I want. The closest I've come is the song Pale on Pale by Chelsea Wolfe, if that helps clarify things.

Pale on Pale. I find Chelsea Wolfe meets a lot of my needs for extremely dark music in a way that most metal cannot.

Deficit is wonderfully oppressive and suffocating.

The piano in Heir Apparent is actually quite terrifying.

The Eldritch Dark

I enjoyed this album quite a lot, but it is not what I am currently seeking. It has the whole occultish thing going on in the lyrics, but the sound itself does not approach the darkness I desire. Included mostly to avoid it being recommended.
