You think this is disturbing. There is a recording called The Last Castrato that came out on cd in the early 1990s. There was also a movie. It is a recording of the last known castrato that was recorded in the early 20th century when he was in his 60s. It only took me about 2 seconds to be forever scared after listening to that.
I think Rowan London (an operatic tenor that death growls) whispering with some really bizarre intonation "Walk without limbs right through my soul" over and over live is one of the more terrifying musical experiences I've had. That and Atilla of Black Metal band Mayhem doing Gregorian chants and throat singing over >10bpm music in a Grimm robe, surrounded by fog with wall to ceiling of amplifiers rattling every bone in the body.
