Well, the title is pretty descriptive. I'm looking for metal songs with lyrics inspired by Twin Peaks, one of the greatest suspense series ever. There's a lot of material within the plot to write about, and its cult status kinda suits the heavy metal imaginarium.
Right now I can name just one song, but there a many for sure, even tracks that I know but I haven't payed enough attention!

Youtube: show



The dweller on the threshold
The reflection of the soul
Slipping into the deadness of
This mighty black hole
Final chance now to set
My spirit free, I say
Fire, fire, fire walk with me!

Now I've come to terms that
Fear is the key
A dance now in the moonlight in
The circle of sycamore trees

"Through the darkness of
Future past the magician longs
To see one chants out
Between two worlds
Fire walk with me!"

I wouldn't be surprised if Anthrax had Twin Peaks in mind, when they wrote Black Lodge:

As far as I can remember, Black Chamber by Blind Guardian was about someone being lost in Twin Peaks world. It's very short and it's not a metal song, but whatever.

I'm not sure if it's about the show, but Marilyn Manson's Wrapped in Plastic is influenced by Twin Peaks and contains audio samples from it.

Finnish melodic doom metal band Swallow the Sun has several songs inspired by Twin Peaks on their second album, Ghosts of Loss:

You are not, the song was actually co-written with Angelo Badalamenti, the guy who scored the television series, and many other David Lynch projects.

As for songs, here is Armagedda's Ghostwood:

I've never watched the show, but I'm pretty sure it's a strong theme in Windham Hell's music.

Twin Peaks is my favourite television series ever.

In fact, Anthrax’ “Black Lodge” is not only co-written by Angelo Badalamenti, the music video also has a twisted plot that can be interpreted as a nod to the series. Note that the Anthrax song “Only” from the same record also has an interesting music video where Frank Silva (who portrayed the series main villain BOB) is holding a mirror and going insane towards the end. The first time I saw the video, I did not know Silva was in it and it gave me quite a jolt! BOB is by far the scariest villain I have ever seen in a movie or series. Just thinking of him makes me feel uneasy in a very positive way.

Aside of that, the Norwegian Hard Rock and Post-Grunge band Audrey Horne is also inspired by the series and David Lynch projects in general (the album title “No Hay Banda” is inspired by the Mulholland Drive movie). Audrey Horne is the name of a character in Twin Peaks:

It’s not metal but the famous Norwegian synthrock band Apoptygma Berzerk has written a song called “Moment Of Tranquility” which is heavily inspired by the series’ title track. I like this song:

Guys, great stuff so far! I knew that I was forgetting something! I love "Black Lodge" :-p
Hell, that Fantomas' song is amazing, gotta check some more stuff.

Dodheimsgard samples it on 'Traces of Reality' off Satanic Art and on the outro 'Wrapped in Plastic.' The piano pieces on 666 International sound rather Badalamenti-inspired too.

Solefald mentions Agent Dale Cooper in a song on Neonism, don't remember the title off hand.

There's also Fire Walk With Us by Aborym.

Youtube: show


The atmosphere in Twin Peaks is incredible, definitely fertile ground for musical inspiration. I mean stuff like this scene is just something else (don't watch if you haven't seen at least the first 3 episodes of the series). Channeling that well would be incredible to hear.

Russian gothic metal band SeVeN covers Julee Cruise's "Falling" from the Twin Peaks soundtrack:

I would rather go and listen to the first Julee album (whisch is great btw). The mix on that cover is horrible, and the drums sound like CRAP! and the song doesn't even go like that!

Not lyrically about Twin Peaks at all, but how about using the main theme song almost exactly? Almost forgot about it but this thread instantly made me remember.. first time I heard this I laughed out loud and still cannot think of anything else.

Graveland - War Wolf(first song on Fire Chariot of Destruction) at 4:00

Twin Peaks theme(everyone looking at this thread should know it already but here it is anyway)

Autumnblaze: "Words Are Not What They Seem"

http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Au ... Seem/59132

Title ("The Owls...") and artwork definitely inspired by TP, plus a cover of "Falling". I seem to remember something about the whole album being inspired by it though, but I couldn't say for sure as I haven't actually heard it.

Not metal, but check out Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones. I copy and paste a quote:

“A hint of ’50s cool jazz, a truckload of noise and melodies, again tiny references to the Twin Peaks series soundtrack and some ghostly and deep tone voices: the Dale Cooper Quartet pushes the genre Dark Jazz towards other spaces. The album is further enriched by appearances of guest musicians such as Alicia Merz (Birds of Passage), Zalie Bellacicco, Ronan Mac Erlaine and Gaëlle Kerrien (Yann Tiersen) on vocals.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=848p7p0BDRg

I´m not sure about their lyrics though? But I guess they´re in there, somewhere....

Another Swallow the Sun song that seems to be loosely about Twin Peaks is "These Woods Breathe Evil", off the fourth album:

Surprised I haven't heard about Lynch until recently. I only saw eraser-head for the first time yesterday. I guess I've got homework to do.

Well Twin Peaks is just as much Mark Frost's work, people seem to forget that. Lynches other work is a little more abstract and "artistic".

Ya I love this show (obviously - my name for starters) it's almost obsessive.

Bohren & Der Club of Gore took serious influence from the show and wrote an entire album that would soundtrack the show perfectly - Sunset Mission. It's amazing. Better than The Dale Cooper Quartet as far as dark jazz twin peaks bands go.

Supposed to be good? Hahahaha. It's only the best TV-series ever made. The pilot don't give you any impression how the actual series is.

If you have some knowledge about secret societies, conspiracy theories and theology. You will even understand more. I catch small new details, every single time I re-watch something from this series.

"Leland, the time has come for you to seek the path. Your soul has set you face to face with the clear light and you are now about to experience it in all its reality, wherein all things are like the void and cloudless sky, and the naked, spotless intellect is like a transparent vacuum, without circumference or center. Leland, in this moment, know yourself, and abide in that state. . . Look to the light, Leland. Find the light."

Ya man - it's just so good. It's weird and quirky and funny and the characters are awesome and the music rules.

I love Twin Peaks. 'Carnivale' is another show that gets thrown in there comparatively to Twin Peaks. Another unusual gem.
