Ive seen a couple of "Sounds of Warhammer 40,000" albums kicking around but they seem to be dance music. Are they any good?
What would you recommend as good WH40K background music? Music that evokes the WH40K universe?
Do you know of any good WH40K sound sites with effects or snippets of music to download?
Specifically their album "Realm of chaos, slaves to darkness" - Yes they (at the time) were so focused on warhammer GW offered to do the album art and they named their album after 2nd ed 40k.
It does help they are a very good band for the type of music they play.
My 40K music choices:
Sisters of Battle 'Like a Prayer' Madonna
Death Guard 'Prince of Darkness: The Darkness Awakens' and others by John Carpenter
Slaanesh Daemons: 'Magic and Ecstasy' Exorcist II: The Heretic' soundtrack
Imperial Guard 'Assault on Fort Wagner' "Glory" soundtrack
Necrons 'Doubtful Judgment' 'Soul Edge video game soundtrack' by Khan
Eldar 'Veteran of the Psychic Wars' Blue Oyster Cult
Space Marines - Chosen Ones by Dream Evil
Inquisition - Conquest of Paradise by Vangelis
Imperial Guard - The Mass by Era
Imperial Navy - Final Countdown by Europe
Adeptus Mechanicus - Imperial March from Star Wars
Orks - Brainstorm by Arctic Monkeys
Chaos Space Marines - Quite Bitter Things by CKY
i would say something along the lines of Apocalyptica, they are metal, have no words and use 4 cellos.
May the "Nurgley Goodness" protect you!
E. S. Posthumus - Pompeii (So it's a little cheesy. I still like it. )
Globus - Preliator (Ditto.)
"Gladiator" soundtrack - play "Progeny," "The Wheat," and "The Battle" one right after the other. Epic.
Basil Poledouris - Hunt For Red October Soundtrack, "Nuclear Scam"
If that's not enough, then nothing, but NOTHING beats the following:
Gustav Holst - The Planets (Mars)
Space Marines(general)- Vain Glory Opera by Edguy
Space Marines(Dark Angels)- The Fallen Angel by Iron Maiden
Space Marines(Blood Angels)- Another angel Down by Avantasia
Space Marines(Black Templars)- Emerald Sword By Rhapsody
Imperial Guard- The Trooper by Iron maiden
Orks- Destroyer by Static-X
Dark Eldar- Hurt by Nine Inch Nails
Choas Space Marines- Sweating Bullets by Megadeth
Chaos Deamons- Raining Blood by Slayer
Eldar- Time Stands Still by Blind Guardian
40k just makes me think metal i guess

Ride of the Valykrie? (again, especially good for IG)
A movement from Rite of Spring? (plenty of stuff that sounds like the chaos of battle, also pretty disturbing)
