IMO the best way to have fun with chromaticism and dissonance is by using augmented 4ths/7ths in regular chords, especially both at the same time. Some think I to flat II is also pretty cool, but I find that metal kind of did that do death. I prefer it when the actual chords are made to sound creepy and unsettling, rather than just have a chord that doesn't fit into the 'major minor minor major major minor diminished' scheme of things.
