I play WoC and I LOVE music! My favorite genre is metal and I love listening to it while playing. The other day I realized that the PERFECT song to represent my army, or to be my armies theme song, is the song: The Lost Vikings, by the group: Dethklok. They are so brutal and awesome and it represent the Warriors of Chaos so well! So I was just wonder what genre you guys like the most, what army you play, and what song you guys would feel to be the perfect theme song for your army. Once you read this YOU MUST POST!!!:)

When I played VC (Blood Dragon) in 6th edition.. I always thought Karma by Kamelot fit the more tragic side of VC.

Right now I play Dark Elves.. not sure about lyrically, but melody and blood curdling vocals-wise I think DIMMU BORGIR - Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse would fit. Not to mention an actual opera and orchestra mixed in with the brutal metal instruments.

Fintroll and Amon Amarth remind me more of the Marauder side of Chaos (not so much the demonside).

Blind Guardian - Battlefield reminds me of Empire.

I think metal is a given, since so many songs are about epic battles and stuff... No place for 50 cent in an army from Athel Loren!

I'd say Bathory - The Land, since I'm doing a Sweden-themed Empire army, and I can really see the lyrics fit there.

"This land is mine to the end of time
none it shall claim or conquer
the mountains high : the endless sky
the forests and the sea

Oh land rejoice : your son has sailed
beyond the seas : adventurous trail
now heading north : to Asa Bay
my place of birth : home of the brave

A man he may wither away
or die in battle with sword in hand
but the river will flow and the wind will blow
forever across my northern land

This land is mine to the end of time
none it shall claim or conquer
the mountains high : the endless sky
the forests and the sea

Oh fatherland : oh Northstar high
two hundred days and night have I
been away from you my hearts most dear
returning home : great wealth to share

Work those oars : the wind is still
no southern breeze our sail to fill
the dusk is here and our bay is far
the Dragon soon to sweep the night
so work these oars an Sorsemen : brother's row

The land where deep in heavyturf the bones and crushed skulls testify
the violent times and troubled days when land was claimed
and paid for in blood and human lives

The land where gold of star will glow in silvery water
and on black wings high the ravens soar above
the glade where as child I was baptised in fire and ice"

Ah... Such beauty! A shame Sweden's really nothing like that ;)

hehehe. All I can think is Luca Turilli's "Ancient Forest of Elves" whenever I see Wood Elves. Though "Heathenreel" by Elvenking is far less....*****....

My High Elves are hard to place....they're more "soundtrack" than metal. They're not flouncy enough to be suited to most power metal, but they aren't really...suited to much heavier. Maybe "Rebellion in Dreamland" by Gamma Ray

I also must point out "Triarchy of the Lost Lovers" by Rotting Christ as a great VC tune.

And despite this being fantasy, "Battle Angels" by Sanctuary (Warrel and Jim pre-Nevermore) is THE Space Marine song.

My Ogres ALWAYS have the best music!
And they never leave the Mountains without blasting "Something Weird in the Fridge", by Weird Al Yankovic!

Most of the talk about food makes me think about Ogres WAY too much for my own liking.

Or we can always have "Superbeast", by Rob Zombie. For some reason, it just screams Ogre Kingdom's at me.

Wood elves: Forest king by 3 Inches of Blood (some of the lyrics are off, but its a great song about the forest re-taking the world)

WoC: Where is your god? by Amon Amarth (I can see Khorn warriors smashing empire soldiers laughing at them and asking 'where is your god now'!)

Bretonians: Fire Lances Of The Ancient Hyperzephyrians by The Sword (knights on a quest for magic weapons, heck yes)

VC: Seize The Night By Mercenary (its a song about being a vampire and taking control of the night, just an awesome song)

Space Marines: I Rule by Tarot (a song about being awesome? sounds like a marine song to me!)

Imperial Guard: Warheart by Children of Bodom (if I use Sly marbo...its HIS song)

Ghost Division by Sabaton ('Shaking the ground with the force of thousand guns' and 'Tanks leading the way, leading the way' in the first verse scream guard)

I'm a WOC player as well and I always preferred Amon Amarth songs such as..

Fate of The Norns
Cry of the Blackbird
Pursuit Of Vikings
Runes To My Memory
Twilight of the Thunder God..

Valhall Awaits Me...

Blood gushes from the wound
The cut is wide and deep
And before I turn around
He falls to his knees

A clear song rings in the blade
When steel meets hardened steel.
I hear the sound of wood that breaks,
A swords cuts through my shield.

I drop the shield and grab my axe,
A weapon in each fist.
The first blow makes the helmet crack,
The axe cut to the teeth.

I rip the axe from the head,
covered in blood and brains.
Leave the body lying dead,
Ready to strike again.

My sword cuts through clothes and skin,
Like a hot knife cuts through snow.
I smile as the bastard screams,
when I twist my sword.

Sword in my hand,
Axe on my side.
Valhall awaits me,
Soon I will die.
Bear skin on my back,
Wolf jaw on my head.
Valhall awaits me
when I'm dead.

I raise my axe above my head,
My eyes stare in furious rage.
Yet more blood will be shed,
This is a victorious day!

Blood gushes from the wound,
The cut is wide and deep.
As I turn around,
I fall to my knees.

Sword in my hand,
Axe on my side.
Valhall awaits me,
Soon I will die.
Bear skin on my back,
Wolf jaw on my head.
Valhall awaits me
when I'm dead.

Cant get any more viking than that. A song about the middle of a battle...so great.

The Fighting Man by Forefather is also a great WoC song...

The flag held high, a call to the warrior's pride
North they had won, weary in body not mind
Standing alone, the few who would see him to live
For their brother to stay, allegiance to him they must give

Under the banner of The Fighting Man

Through dense forest and dark of night
Always the flag is alight
From northern lands to shores of south
Always the flag is the light

Not the chosen son of throne
But they did hail him as their own
The Fighting Man in two was torn
A new flag flies but soon we'll see the new dawn

Under The Fighting Man

I love these threads it's nice to see what other people listen too.

After taking a little break from playing warhammer, I'm getting back into the game by building a VC army, and these are some of the songs I'm listening to for inspiration.

Blue Oyster Cult: Nosferatu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJIS4c3pwsA), I Love The Night (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ognBcHjlcJo&NR=1), and Don't Fear the Reaper (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUO_5EALZoM).

Lacuna Coil: Humane (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRow2bP6g0A), Enjoy the Silence (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx58hXh4pVA), and When A Dead Man Walks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVcNvFzIY78&feature=fvw).

They are a couple more, I also started listing to the Birthday Massacre, but that's cause I love them.

The two songs that definitely inspired me to go VC are these.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB4Ai4X3STY&feature=PlayList&p=7BFF944AD9DFEECC

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xq0rvcN7ROY&feature=PlayList&p=7BFF944AD9DFEECC

The funny thing is they are from the soundtrack to a movie, but every time I hear them I think of this old Strigoi vampire. He is beaten and worn out, hiding in a run down crypt, full of resentment and rage, and plague by memories of better days long gone.

Blind Guardian - Battlefield reminds me of Empire.

That's funny, Blind Guardian - "And Then There was Silence" is what reminds me of the Empire :p

@ geldedgoat: Dude... Thin Lizzy's "Emerald" is, imo, a better song for WoC :P

Mr Lizzies march to either Kamelot's - "March of Mephisto"; or Symphony X's - "Domination"; or Firewind's - "I am the Anger".

My Daemonhunters and Eldar tend to play similar tunes when Im in the mood for 40k:
Astral Projection - "Let there be Light"
Symphony X - "Wicked"
Perfume - "Electroworld", "Plastic Smile", "Chocolate Disco"
...The entire Opeth "Damnation" album (When Im feeling Eldar-Boohoo-Melancholy-Syndrome).


Infact, I generally mix my songs when playing 40k or Fantasy, coz I feel that both games can get different feels from the same music... Except J-Pop, that's when I'm in a particularly cheery mood.

Does anyone else feel like music can effect their judgement in tactics? My friend came over and slammed in some Emperor, and suddenly my plans went out the window and I was just charging in with hatred comparible to the heat of a thousand suns.


Was trippy.

War Ensemble lyrics :)

Propaganda death ensemble
Burial to be
Corpses rotting through the night
In blood laced misery
Scorched earth the policy
The reason for the singe
The pendulum it shaves the blade
The strafing air blood raid

infiltration push reserves
Encircle the front llines
Supreme art of strategy
Playing on the minds
Bombard till submission
Take all to their graves
Indication of triumph
The number that are dead

CHORUS
Sport the war, war support
The sport is war, total war
When victory's a massacre
The final swing is not a drill
It's how many people I can kill

CHORUS

Be dead friend from abve
When darkness falls
Descend into my sights
Your fallen walls
Spearhead break through the lines
Flanked all around
Soldiers of attrition
Forward their ground
GRegime prophetic age
Old in its time
Flowing veins run on through
Deep in the Rhine
Center of the web
All battles scored
What is our war crimes
(Era forever more...war)

Propaganda war ensemble
Burial to be
Bones shining in the night
In blood laced misery
Campaign of elimination
Twisted psychology
When victory is to survive
And death is defeat

CHORUS
Sport the war, war support
The sport is total war
When victory's a massacre
When victory is survival
When this end is a slaughter
The final swing is not a drill
It's how many people I can kill

Cool! What a lovely thread!

I just love seeing my VC army rise from the grave and start their grim march accompanied by the music of Empusae (in particular "Game of Confession" is awesome for this).

Lining up in face of the enemy and starting the attack I'd continue with "Resolution" by Converter, and once close combat will commence any other work of Converter will do great.

Sounds of grinding metal and broken machines, alright, it has a total industrial sound so it might fit 40k even better, but I only do fantasy and artists like Converter, Empusae, Synapscape, Sonar, Suicide Commando and many others just fill the spirit with the desire for utter destruction!

Daemon Hunters theme song
for my army is:

Storm The Gates Of Hell by demon hunters

"Broken teeth, a shattered jaw
Ten to one, behold my God
Wicked sons of Heaven’s loss
Raise your own inverted cross
Kings of earth, iron first
Serve the sacred you dismissed
Stand before your final day
Choke on every line you pray

Raise your glass to death
Not one second left

Wake the lifeless, die to fight this
Stand beside me, storm the gates of Hell
Wake the lifeless, die to fight this
Stand beside me, storm the gates of Hell
Storm the gates of Hell

Coward’s heart, a serpent’s tongue
Stand to face what you’ve outrun
Fear of death, fear of pain
Bound to all you took in vain
No more lies, no regrets
Sever ties and hollow debt
Open eyes, live to learn
Or watch your blessed temple burn

Raise your glass to death
Not one second left

Wake the lifeless, die to fight this
Stand beside me, storm the gates of Hell
Wake the lifeless, die to fight this
Stand beside me, storm the gates of Hell
Storm the gates of Hell

Hell hath no fury at all"

I don't care if this song isn't perceived as fitting for a VC army, I've chosen it anyway. To be honest, it isn't as much my army's theme as it is my theme, I've got it running for several hours per day whenever I'm up to something. :)

:D

Armin Van Buuren - "Sahara" is a TK song for me. Not because the name is of a desert but because the song actually sounds like... Magical-Sandstormy...If that even makes sense. I marched my Lizzies against my mate's VC to "Control Freak", it felt damn good (much to his annoyance, he hates dance/trance/electro/etc)

Trance is something I find hard to associate with Fantasy things in general, though, it's more suited to Sci-Fi.

Metal/Rock/Classical are better suited to Fantasy stuff.

My Warriors of Chaos would march to "Bad to the Bone" by good ol' George Thorogood.

The infamous and beloved Daemons of Chaos arrive to "Down with the Sickness" from Disturbed.


Funny enough, my Vampire Counts would appear via "Hells Bells" by AC/DC.

And the Tomb Kings of Khemri love "Enter the Sandman" by Metallica!!!

Ah Voltaire, I remember when they use to play his music on "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy." This was back when cartoon network actually showed things worth watching instead of being MTV lite.

Brains! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgDvRi3h_0w&NR=1) is another favorite of mine; not sure who it fits. Maybe chaos?

my vampire counts usually rage with anything by abigail williams.

brutal and symphonic.

awwwwright.

i'm thinking "the dream left behind" by graf orlock is absolutely crucial for lizardmen, if for no other reason than it samples the jurassic park theme.

Armin Van Buuren - "Sahara" is a TK song for me. Not because the name is of a desert but because the song actually sounds like... Magical-Sandstormy...If that even makes sense. I marched my Lizzies against my mate's VC to "Control Freak", it felt damn good (much to his annoyance, he hates dance/trance/electro/etc)

Trance is something I find hard to associate with Fantasy things in general, though, it's more suited to Sci-Fi.

Metal/Rock/Classical are better suited to Fantasy stuff.

Sahara is an awesome song! I'm rather out of the electronica loop these days (I'm getting old...haha), but my searchfu confirmed your recommendation. I have a game next Friday vs. Lizardmen, I may have to put that on my iPod for when I deploy. Reserving "We Want Your Soul (Raiden Mix)" for when it's time to open the Casket of Souls! :skull:

I'm an Acid Jazz head at the core. Trance is obviously a stretch (but one I could tolerate for High Elves, luckily I don't run them). Darkstep Jungle is about as hard as electronica can get so I tend to rock Dieselboy or AK1200 when I'm playing. I'm not into Metal, Rock or Classical, although I do have a soft spot for older Metallica and I own two different versions of Flight of the Valkyrie by Wagner (it's heavy and therefore good).

My old goblin horde - Why Cant We Be Friends? (Smash Mouth)

Just to add to the horrifically comic element of the army ;-)

Im liking all the metal head theme songs. I'll have to go with an Amon Amarth song too, probably 'Valhall Awaits Me' since thats my sig.

To the guy who said "What about Rush?" I say of course RUSH. For preference Bravado for my Empire Army but any Rush will do.
My Orcs Prefer Trooper's "We're here for a good time (Not a long time)"
For the Tomb King's - Green Day's "Holiday"

Can't believe I haven't seen "Dogs of War" by Pink Floyd, good with just about any army. Once battle is joined, all soldiers are just the same...
"Battle of Evermore" by LedZepplin is especially nice for any Elvish army.
For long, long battles, you can do far worse than the soundtracks from "Lord of the Rings" movies. Epic stuff.

My Vamps well I'd have to say ''super driver'' by aya hirano. (For those who don't know she sings the intro to the anime, the melonchony of haruhi suzimina and in that anime they are a part of the ''SOS Brigade'') That ''SOS'' logo is painted on my Grave Guard's banner :P. Oh and my BSB is the :D smiley (Awesome Face).

Every time my Slaanesh Horsemen go charging into something I hear "Cult of Personality" playing in my head, which quickly changes to the Cult of Slaanesh from the Storm of Chaos campaign.

If I was running a throgg the troll king army, I'd definetly be listening to the song "Trollhammaren" by Finntroll http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGywo81G6lk&feature=fvst

I listen to blue oyster cult's don't fear the reaper when playing my beastmen. (BoC=Beasts of chaos and blue oyster cult) and the whole "needs more cowbell" thing just fits with evil farm animals.

And for dwarfs it has to be: Hold the heathen hammer high by Tyr http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu2bgwcv43o

For Dark Elves, I have to go Night on Bald Mountain (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8Ca_edg6RE), and I can also see Der Fliedermaus (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x9MJXI0KbY&feature=related) from the Hellsing soundtrack work for a Highborn Druchii in battle or court.

Ah... Such beauty! A shame Sweden's really nothing like that ;)

Yeah, that reminds me of someone jokingly saying that many of the swedish wars were won by the use of finnish cavalry, reknown for their scary warshout "Hakkaa päälle!", loosely translated as "Smash 'em!" or "Get 'em!"

I haven't really thought about a theme song for my (mostly) Nurgle WoC, but from the top of my head, I'd name: Thunderstone - Virus.

It's not really that fantasy-related - more fitting for WH40K Nurgle - but I love the song.

That song has been stuck in my head for years now, and it will NOT DIE!

Today has been a bit weird for me while thinking about what to do with my army. I was listening to Def Leppard earlier on, and I somehow associated it with certain things. Tzeentch = Hysteria (The title really is all, but the song soon follows.) Then Armageddon It pops in while thinking about my magic phase..Not good.

Hmmm

My armies (both 40k and Fantasy)

Vamps:Enter Sandman, Metallica
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKbADm8omn0&feature=fvst

40k:
Nids: Run to the Hills, Iron Maiden
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geHLdg_VNww

Eldar:Mad World, Gary Jules
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4

And for my next army (Either WoC/DoC or SM) this song seems to fit them rather well, and its a great video to boot!
