Whilst building Tyranid Warriors and Deathwatch Marines, Wulfen_kind & I had a rather random/interesting conversation about what the gods of Chaos listen to.
It should be noted that we were listening to "Engine #9" on Adrenaline by Defones and we have been hanging out for the last two weeks straight and playing warhammer and talking about warhammer and talking about playing warhammer so the level of conversation has taken a dramatic nose dive in sense and quality.
Wulfen_kind's opinion:
Khorne: Slipknot, good for stabbing, Mauling and general violence.

Nurgle: Beethoven, Bach, Tchaikovsky etc., Nurgle would surely have a bit on and appreciation for the finer things in life/death as he has been around since the dawn of time and probably before...

Tzeentch: 80's Electro probably, seems a bit erratic & colourful like the lord of change is?

Slaanesh: Scissor sisters 'nuf said...

My opinion:

Khorne: Metallica and general thrash metal. Listening to that music just makes me want to hit kids in the face with their own arms and legs, so I figure this would suit Khorne.

Nurgle: "BloodHoundGang - That Cough came with a prize". If you've heard it you'll know why.

Slaanesh: Hard one here, Either Marilyn Manson or Michael Jackson (Post Thriller) Either one makes me want to slash my wrists and write bad poetry.

Tzeentch: Samual Barber - Angus Dei I think he would like Choirs and lots of female voices all whispering things that may well be and could be depending on what he desires.

I always figured that Khorne would be more into Screamo. Isn't there a band that wrote a song "Blood for the Blood God" based on Khorne? He'd listen to that me thinks.

I think Nurgle would listen to Jack Johnson

I'm sure Slaanesh would like a bit of Panic At The Disco

Whereas Tzeentch would change and like all three at once :D

Yep. Debauchery. Not screamo though, Death metal. Which would also be the genre of choice for Khorne I think ;).

See, I'd figure Slaanesh would listen to rave music and psychedelic trance myself. Hard rock is more Khorne's thing.

I think Khorne would be a bit of a slayer fan considering they are a pretty brutal fan.
I can imagine Slaanesh being a mix between pop and emo.

Why narrow it to just the chaos gods, what about the other races/factions?

Khorne, Would be speed, thrash metal,
Slaanesh, would be like classical,
Nurgle, I am not shure on this one, maybe pop music.
Tzeench, I would agree with the guy who said techno music.

CEO Kasen
12-07-2009, 18:19
Tzeentch? Techno? Honestly, he's the guy to whom I would have given Classical. 8 symphonies. All playing at the same time.

Something like this for Slannesh I think:

Can you belive that people really listen to this stuff?

Debauchery are pretty much khorne in musical form - from a pure lyrical perspective Apostle of War (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-RzxIF-Zl8) is probably one of their most appropiate songs.

Bolt Thrower also get a mention given they have pretty much sung songs about war for about 20 years, including the ever mentioned World Eater (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wb1mHy9i30).

If people want to play upon the sexual nature of slaanesh (and the perverse part in aprticular) I suggest they go look up a band called Eroticide.

Generally speaking when it comes to the more evil side of the chaos gods rather than mixing their preferences with a song death metal is usually the way to go.

Yes I can. MSI are fun live, even if they are idiots.

I always imagined Slaanesh listening to something even more atonal and dischordant than that... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78BM5BweGTA)

also is it already that time...

Khorne - Persuader and any Black, Death, Heavy, Speed, Thrash, Power, Epic, Gothic, and Corps form of metal. Basically, anything adrenalin pumping and fast that supports death, which all of these have at least one song of. :skull:

Nurgle - Classical and doom metal. :cheese:

Slaanesh - I'd say everything due to the fact that it is the Prince of Pleasure, thus implying he gets pleasure out of everything. But to be specific, a lyre and other ancient Greek stuff, Symphonic, Progressive, Speed, and Power metal, and probably all rock and pop. :evilgrin:

Tzeentch - Classical, The Lonely Island and such, and video game music. I don't really know for Tzeentch because he doesn't let us see his true thoughts. Edit: Beer Is Good. Nuff said. :chrome:

Nurgle - the smiths and morrissey

The Chaos gods are responsible for the creation of the Jonas Brothers. Abadons 13th Black Crusade was in part a mission to secure certain artifacts that would allow him to summon them from the Warp.

Why do people always pick the most accessible and human sounding music for these kind of topics ? I dont understand at all...

I'd think Chaos would listen to actual NOISE music (especially noise marines duh), Dark Ambient, Experimental, Death-Industrial. Power Electronics (oh definitly Slaanesh, especially with the sick hedonistic themes and noise) ect you know music that is more noise and chaotic with less structure, more messed up and dark..actually chaotic.

Griefbringer
12-07-2009, 20:08
Noise Marines don't listen Noise - they are the Noise!

That said, with Slaanesh everything sufficiently pleasant and debauched goes - progressive rock played with daemonic organs, opera sung by a choir of tortured eunuch slaves, a thousand chaos marines doing obscene disco, a rogue psyker ensemble broadcasting vibrant thoughs, gasps of massed orgies, the dying scream of the eldar race - they all can bring joy to the Prince of Pleasure.

LonelyPath
12-07-2009, 20:25
Khorne would likelike prefer Slayer, MegaDeth, Death, Carcass. Generally he'd be drawn to the names initially as they alude to violence ;)

Slaanesh would probably listen to music you'd expect to find in porn movies, lol.

Nurgle... I got no idea here.

Tzeentch would listen to whatever took his whimsical fancy. his musical tastes changing every few minutes.

Ok how about this for Slannesh: NiN - Art of Self Destructon

i am the voice inside your head (and i control you)
i am the lover in your bed (and i control you)
i am the sex that you provide (and i control you)
i am the hate you try to hide (and i control you)

i speak religion's message clear (and i control you)
i am denial guilt and fear (and i control you)
i am the prayers of the naive (and i control you)
i am the lie that you believe (and i control you)

and you let me you do this to you
and you let me you do this to you (i am an exit)
and you let me you do this to you (i am an exit)

i am the needle in your vein
i am the high you can't sustain
i am the pusher i'm a whore
i am the need you have for more

falls ******* to the floor

i am the bullet in the gun (and i control you)
i am the truth from which you run (and i control you)
i am the silencing machine (and i control you)
i am the end of all your dreams (and i control you)

i take you where you want to go
i give you all you need to know
i drag you down i use you up
mr self destruct

On the album the song is played three times in ever more chaotic remixs. Although I believe it was written about Renzors Heroin addiction, it really couldn't be any more Slanneshi.

Closer is more Slaaneshi if you ask me, it's sheer perversion. Then again, as is Darling Nikki by Prince.

Slaanesh would listen to megaboobed Swedish porn stars, busty beauty Dannii Minogue (especially Vibe On) and sexy Bionda!

13-07-2009, 01:35
I think khorne would probably listen to some bands like: Lamb of god(BtP), early slipknot, BMTH, Slayer, Arch Enemy, cannibal corpse.

I could see Slaanesh kicking back and listening to some old clasical music while he/she/it uses the bodies of his/hers/its dead enemies to perform some grotesque puppet show. Then again while he/she/it is in killing mode I imagine he/she/it would listen to something very fast paced and heavy.

nurgle enjoys the fine musical stylings of radiohead!

and whatever hannibal lector was listening to in his cell after he battered the cop to death and cut the other ones face off, a bit of nice classical music there

Kissaholic
13-07-2009, 03:28
Slaanesh would listen to KISS cause all there songs are about girls and SEX!

Corax
13-07-2009, 05:59
For some reason that I can't quite articulate, I have this feeling that Tzeentch would listen to Daft Punk...

Grimtoast
13-07-2009, 07:33
Noise Marines would obviously be Lou Reed fans:

Inject sounds like this straight into your brain, with along with a combat stim cocktail. Mmm....blissful chaotic psychosis that will make you want to kill anything and everything around you.

Triggerdog
13-07-2009, 09:12
Nurgle: Tract for Valerie Solanas by Matmos because its grinding and the background sounds 2:40 on are wholly disgusting.

Slaanesh: Closer by Nine Inch Nails. Really, this should be obvious.

Khorne: Future Fail by Front Line Assembly. Barbarians? Check. Raining Blood? check. Demons and crap? yup yup

Tzeentch: Afx237 V7 *or* Come to Daddy, both by Aphex Twin. One the one hand we have screaming and insanity and on the other we have eating souls. Yeah.....pretty much Tzeentch

But Slaanesh _is_ every megaboobed Swedish porn star! :evilgrin:

Oh, and I think a lot of chaos gods are digging D-Rok and Bolt Thrower big time.

This lyrics could also fit in the song some kind of monster of metallica.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2r6LgkW33k

in the original song he says..

this is....
this is...
so putting i am instead of this is...
that they would really fit.

anyway...
Khorne: metallica, 'korn', opeth-l0l
nurgle: ac-dc, slayer, system of a down and those groops
slaneesh: kiss, punk groups
tzeench: Beethoven, Mozart

I'de say just off the top of my head, the whole downward spirial album works for slaanesh (but I'm a NIN freak so...), but anything would work for any of the gods really, as the god's arn't as 2D as people think them to be....

still I stand alone by godsmack makes me think of khorne (or vampires)

13-07-2009, 10:59
Khorne: Fear Factory
Nurgle: Crowbar
Slaanesh: Culture Club
Tzeentch: Devin Townsend

Yeah, I agree completely. But hey, I'm also a NIN freak (and I'll be seeing them in 17 days! woohoo!), so...

Also, as someone said, I can imagine Slaanesh enjoying pretty much all kinds of music. But I always thought this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bKNTXJKoAw) sounds like a Daemonette trying to sound human and lullying someone to love her. Seriously. Listen to the complete song. Esp. from 2.50, one can easily imagine the mouth of the Daemonette becoming too big and the victim realizing the horrible mistake (s)he's made trusting that little lady :P
Oh, and this too. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn712tYU-U4)

Khorne-realy heavy stuff, dont have any of that myself so dont know the artists (tho korn spings to mind ;D)

Nurgle: personaly i think all things from the clasical and romantic periods, i can just imagine nurgle stiring his culdren while listning to this :D.

Slannesh: mindless self indulgence...it says it all :)

Tzzentch: all things techno

khorne early slipknot always made me want to go out and kill (collect heads)

nurgle cheesy pop for some reason thinking his grand children would like it

Slannesh korn listen to the lyrics lovely stuff about getting raped etc

Tzeentch some mad drum and bass mixed with some prodigy

I agree on the khorne/slayer bit. Can't say I've ever seen anyone that was like "yeah, I liked Slayer for a little while". We've only seen the guy that carved the band name into his arm and lit it on fire. Thats pretty khorne-esk if you ask me.

LonelyPath
13-07-2009, 12:44
Okay, got a few more.

Khorne - GWAR, Kataklysm, Alestorm, Napalm Death.
Slaanesh - Lordi, Blood, Malice Mizer, other assorted japanese and EGL bands. Oh and he/she/it would be a fan of great Rocky Horror and Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Tweentch - Sikth, Persephone, Opeth.
Nurgle - Funeral March of the Marionettes (Alfred Hitchcock Presents theme), various classical and uplifting pop songs (like Bow Wow Wow's I want Candy, et all).

Nurgle: Path to Decay by Sirenia.
Khorne: a chainsaws opera.
Why? Just or fun fit.

I don't understand how this relates to the God of Pleasure? If I'm reading this correctly you're just stating your own personal dislike for them.


Khorne: Fear Factory
Nurgle: Crowbar
Slaanesh: Culture Club
Tzeentch: Devin Townsend

Tzeentch going for Devin Townsend I an see happening. All over the place, that man's music.

Khorne - Death metal, thrash, hardcore.
Tzeentch - Jazz/Fusion, progressive.
Slaanesh - atmospheric, classical, opera, glam metal.
Nurgle - blues and James Blunt.

Wut?
13-07-2009, 14:56
Khorne:-
Nile- User maat Re,
JFAC- Entombment of a machine and
Winds of plague- decimeate the weak

Nurgle - james blunt

tzeench - Bach and beethoven, tsvarosky, vivaldi (you get the idea)

slaanesh - Trance esp the mortal kombat techno remixes

Desert Rain
13-07-2009, 15:07
Khorne would probably listen to some really hard stuff like Mayhem.

Tzeentch is hard, he would probably change every day.

Nurgle is probably the hardest. Either some gruesome grindcore or something, or maybe porngrind.

Slaanesh listens to pop and things like that.

Griefbringer
13-07-2009, 16:04
I think Nurgle might like happy German schlager.
