I know it'd be easy to write a playlist to listen to whilst playing perhaps as Vampire Counts or even Chaos. But what songs would you listen to that capture the spirit of the High Elf army???
It's be interesting to see what you guys can come up with
When I think of High Elves I think of Power Metal. So Bands like Rhapsody, Luca Turilli, Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, Nightwish, and Kamelot really set the spirits for a heroic fantasy battle.
BTW, I highly reccommend these bands if no one has heard of them. They are AMAZING.
well if your into emo music
Evidence, from equilibrium soundtrack, Klaus Badelt
Metalforge, from the battleforge soundtrack
Road to ruin, King arthur music, Hans Zimmer
The all spark, by steve jablonsky.
Master and Commander, Dune soundtrack (the film, not game) BrianTyler
Some of the "Fantasy General" songs
Within Temptation and Nightwish
Do you have any suggestions yourself?

I use instrumental tracks from the band Apocalyptica. Think metal, but played with cellos. It's the heaviest, darkest sound imaginable, but it's also very epic. They originally covered Metallica songs, but have also recorded some CDs entirely made of their own tracks. I suggest 'Worlds Collide' for starters.
I don't subscribe to the idea of Classical music, which some people on the boards go for, but Orchestral music suits the elves just fine. So the album 'Beethoven's Last Night' by Trans-Siberian Orchestra (they don't just do christmas music) or their upcoming 'Night Castle'.
Soundtracks work well too. 'Gladiator' comes to mind, for having that grandiose feeling, but even something like 'Master and Commander' or 'The Lord of the Rings' would work. But then, that's almost cliche.
I've never found it easy to come up with songs for any race as a playlist. I think that if you're going to tie a playlist to a Warhammer game, it should be the kind of music that you would find in a soundtrack to a movie. Because WHFB takes place in a medieval setting, I don't like using modern vocal pieces for ANY army.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.
