Aka: Con­struc­tion: Har­monic us­age:

(6th mode of Melodic mi­nor), Locrian #2 R-2-b3-4-b5-b6-b7

When play­ing over a mi­nor 7 5, or in the con­text of a dark (usu­ally metal) dis­so­nance.

Main riff of Me­tal­lica’s En­ter Sand­man (which har­monises it in par­al­lel pow­er­chords). This scale emerged as a less dis­so­nant way than the

m7b5 Locrian mode for ne­go­ti­at­ing (aka half-di­min­ished) chords. It also can cre­ate very pow­er­ful riffage ma­te­rial (as the mighty Me­tal­lica will at­test). The nat­u­ralE2x­i­an­mteprlvea3l:al­lEowLos to the de­monic Locrian scale.
