I'm really not sure for Ultramarines. Probably something like Verdi's Dies Irae.

Next up, my Khorne Daemonkin army.

For them I choose one of the tracks from the new Mad Max: Fury Road movie: Brothers in Arms

The reason I chose this, is that I like the journey of the song. It starts out grim and bombastic, where you can sense the brutality and grittiness of the battlefield. The army coming riding out of the red mist that spawned it, arms raised and cries to the Blood god being yelled atop the mountains.

In the middle of the song it becomes more melodic, and melancholic. It has a undertone of hope, but also of knowing that there is no way back - That this is what is left and a sliver of memory of happier times. I see this as a piece in the music, where the camera turns towards those being charged - Like seeing the battle from both fronts. The deep bass tones in the background are the Daemonkin pounding the enemy again and again, killing their resolve piece by piece, until the music returns to their side again.

It returns to the bombastic and then at the end, ends the song in the melodic piece again. Like a battle going back and forth between the armies - The peaceful ending resembles the enemy army realizing that they have fought bravely... But that they will not be coming home this time.

Lately I've been having this song play during games against my running necron opponent:

Take a listen to a group called "Two Steps From Hell" they make albums of trailer music. Essentially epic sounding orchestral music. Try Archangel.

Supreme Commander has GREAT music to convey a warlike, grim tone.

See "One Planet at a Time" off the OST

Aww warp-testes, @Nordicus stole my song. Well... it was in my sig first!

(don't worry Nord, I'm mostly just happy to have turned you on to it!)

I'll shoot for some Death Grips for my heretical CSM instead, with "Beware."


Money verse:

"Worship is not on bended knee
Nature knows not of mercy
To pray is to accept defeat
Power pisses on the weak"

I don't like much Death Grips stuff and don't listen to them much, but... when they hit home, they hit hard.

CSM Plog, Tactica

What sphinx of plascrete and adamantium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination? Imperator! Imperator!
