666 - the album

Released in 1971, 666 is the third and final Aphrodite's Child album, a two record concept concerning the biblical Apocalypse. The singer (now deceased) went on to become this guy. The keyboard maestro went on to become this guy. But the album itself remains one of the creepiest, strangest, best examples of so-called progressive rock ever released. And that [infinity] track featuring Irene Papas on vocals -- that's genuinely terrifying in the right/wrong situation.

Typhoonized's You Tube channel has a collection of songs that have been slightly pitch-shifted, and sped up, which gives them a surprising quality all their own. Take Jon and Vangelis - He Is Sailing (original here), or try RYUIKI SAKAMOTO - OKINAWA SONG (Chin Nuku Juushi) and Astrud Gilberto - Agua De Beber. (with sci-fi/fantasy themed illustrations of unknown provenance)
