Default Epic Music For Battles / Fantasy / 40K

Hi guys ... long time no see

I have started working on a playlist for songs to listen to when imagining Battles, Fantasy, and various elements of 40k.

I was thinking it would be great to share some ideas for appropriate music and ideas for songs?

Anyway here are some I have, now obviously film/tv soundtracks, orchestral, classical music should usually take precendence, but the great thing about 40k is that a bit of heavy metal or other types of songs can make it through, especially when thinking of Chaos Marines:

Contributions welcome, and very much appreciated, and also write what the musioc makes you think of, here are a few of mine:


Gathering together of massive Imperial Armies and readying for a crusade:


An Epic Battle Song:


A Tragic Battle/Heroic Song/Last Stand possibly:


IMO a perfect Slannesh Song:


Standing On Board a Capital Flagship In Space There is No Better Than:



There are loads more than that, but that was just to get things started, all contributions welcome

Requiem for a Dream - mentioned above - would most definitely be something to play during a long (slo-mo) final battle / fatal last stand scene for an IG movie

I can think of better ones to be honest, Requiem is so overused that I just can't bear to hear it anymore.

There is plenty of fodder in the Classical Music as well, most of these will be familiar because they have been used in popular movies:


Next one is a bit overused, but great nonetheless:


A little less well known, but great:


Another good one:


moving out of classical to movie soundtracks:




and finally pretty much anything by Hans Zimmer


Servants of the Laughing God (Harlequin Themed Eldar Army)
First Eastern Mirage Corps (C:SM)
I am the Evil Project Log (All my work since restarting the hobby)
The Crusade of Morr (WFB Empire Battle Reports)
Dem Bones (Dice Rolling Program)

Here are a few of my picks.


Shingeki No Kyojing (Attack On Titan): Erinns Berserk Theme

For that moment of pure awesomeness. Espically the part that starts at 2:20.

Shingeki No Kyojing (Attack On Titan):Vogel Im Kafig

Maybe for a desperate last stand or for when going into a hopeless battle.

Diablo 3: And the heavens shall tremble


Starcraft 2 Wings of Liberty: Fire and Fury

I can see this being used for the decisions/dice rolls that could swing the game in your favor.

Starcraft 2 Heart of the swarm: Heart of the Swarm

For when your forces are just ruining your opponents day.

Red Alert 3: Hell March

Because this just screams 40k

Command and Conquer: We will stop them (Kane's Theme)

I think im in an rts mood today

Some days i swear my dice are trying to get me killed.
Is it bad sportsmanship to cackle evilly during ones game?
