Can people suggest any songs/music for my horror film trailer?

I'd like it to be a song that builds up.

I would prefer it to be a SLIGHTLY high tempo song.

Rock would be prefered, but I'm willing to keep an open mind.

any suggestion is welcome.

    I think a lot of modern classical music is totally scary. Threnody to The Victims of Hiroshima by Krzysztof Penderecki is probably the scariest piece of music I've ever heard. Stanly Kubrick used it in The Shining but it would be well worth reusing.

    Kubrick also used a lot of music from Gyorgy Ligeti in The Shining, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Eyes Wide Shut that is really creepy. The pieces Lux Aeterna and Atmospheres that he used in 2001 get very ominous sounding.

    Iannis Xenakis' Hibiki Hana Ma also has some creepy sounding moments, the beginning of Arnold Schoenberg's A Survivor of Warsaw is great plus it gets a little unsettling when people start shouting in German (maybe your witch could be German?), and around 3:10 George Crumb's Voices of Ancient Children gets a little crazy.

    If you want to swipe some music written for horror films, Jerry Goldmisth's Ave Satani from The Omen and Bernard Herrmann's shocker music and prelude from Psycho are absolute classics. Plus the music that Tobe Hooper and Wayne Bell made for the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is some of the scariest music ever made!

    Sorry that none of these are rock songs.
