Hey /m/, this might be a bit of a strange request but I'm trying to make a playlist for some stuff I'm writing/drawing and I realized I wanted some battle music.
Here's the catch, I'm looking for stuff that sounds fairly modern/industrial and while it can be totally badass, I don't want it to sound particularly heroic or glorifying; the kind of music that would play in a brutal battle where regardless of who was victorious, neither side would really be considered winners.

So far I've got:
Armored Core 3 - Follow:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMGH8tkfsZs
Gungriffon Blaze - Ukraine:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpfCgSrBmb0
Zone of the Enders: Dolores - Battlefield:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuP3WbUg1J0
Armored Core VD - Peek a Boo:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQHNhud-Z3E
NeoTokyo - Scrap I/O
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5byxSgCDDo

So yeah, that kind of thing.
Would appreciate just about anything.
>>
Oh, bonus points if the tune evokes imagery of something like heavy machinery moving around like 'Follow' or 'Battlefield' do.
It's kind of hard to describe, but I think you know what I mean.
>>
>>11166452
Intruders from FM4 maybe?

Pretty good, pretty good.

How's this?

Vanquish OST - Battle in the Colony's Residential Area

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RaMvGvbcZ4
>>
Not really /m/ but some of the Ghosts tracks from NIN could be what you're looking for.
Ghosts 31 & 32. 32 is in the video. Which itself is pretty /m/ I guess.

no, trust me

just listen

im serious

You may not consider Air Combat a true /m/ material, but still.

Man the music for Verdict Day is great but there is so much other shit in the game making noise that it's impossible to hear any of it.

soviet music should work for that heavy machinery feel

Get the OST from Argento Soma, it has some great stuff in that vein: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMuOSZQD5QU&index=17&list=PL3926696A37CCAF11

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00CzxOOrWxQ&list=PL3926696A37CCAF11&index=12

>>
>>11166932
Speaking of Argento Soma, if I liked Betterman, and liking M3, will I probably like Argento Soma?
>>
>>11166974
Probably, I like all three and think it's the best of them, M3 being a distant third.
>>
Very fucking cool OP. Bumping for you. I feel like I should have a few of these somewhere to add. I like the mechanical industrial sounds in some of these. I feel like some of the Mechwarrior games would have a handful of songs fitting what youre looking for.
>>
>>11166974
120% chance.
>>
>>11166755
Meh. If we are aiming for Soviet music, why not at least go for something from Russia (if not actual Soviet music - which might be too heroic for op).

Lube perhaps?

Or Belyi Orel, if you can stand them?

Everyone, thanks so much for the replies. Even if I'm not using these, there's still some great stuff here.

>>11166653
Good track but might be a little too electronic.
>>11166675
TY for these, especially 32!
>>11166716
Interesting pick. It's not quite what I'm looking for but it's a good track. Even reminds me of one of the tracks that plays during the final boss battle of Legend of Dragoon. Man, that takes me back.
>>11166733
It's /m/ enough. That's a good track but not quite what I'm after. It's a little too upbeat, I guess. It's a really fun track though. Going into another playlist of mine.
>>11166755
Command and Conquer has some great music for this kind of thing, you're right. 'Link Up' was always a favourite of mine.
>>11166775
Not too dark but still great music. All going into other lists of mine.
>>11166932
I've actually got the Argento Soma OST and yes, there's some fantastic stuff on it. Those are some good choices. 'Primary Tactics' is another good one.
I am somewhat sad that DJ K Hasegawa only did one of the battle tracks. His work on that had that 'late 90's cyberpunk' feel I really dug. That reminds me, I started Platinumhugen Ordian recently and the soundtrack is similar to the Hasegawa tracks and some of the ZOE 1 tracks. I'll have to hunt it down later.
>>11167823
Well, those were certainly something.

Appreciate the bump. Also, if you want some more of what I've got, there's also these tracks too. I left them out earlier because I figured my OP was already long enough. Here they are.

You just reminded me that I had a cassette of that as a kid in the early 90's. Damn, that takes me way back.

>>11166752
>>11166820
Why not just change the settings? I always set it so BGM is slightly louder than SFX.

The Dawn of War 2 sound track probably has some suitable music.

I know this is too much to ask but, do you have a Youtube playlist, OP?
>>
>>11175596
Sadly no, because youtube always gives me trouble when I visit back home and try to log into my account from there (like now) and I only just came up with the idea in the last couple days.

I know it's not much but since all the youtube links are in this thread, it should make it a bit easier to make the playlist if you wanted to, right?

Also, here are some more tracks since it's the best I can do.

Mechwarrior 3 BGM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EWfR-Ud_4k

>>11175095
Thanks. I've heard 2 before but I'll be sure to give 4 a listen through.
>>
>>11169302
Wouldn't have thought of that. I'll need to take a look through some more. Thanks.

These may not be all /m/ in origin, but they should fit what you're looking for, unless some of them pass as TOO dramatic

Armored Core 3's "Artificial Sky" should go without saying
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79AF0vfvJpo

AC2's "King Lear" is also fantastic, would be fitting for a final grand battle
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czvJtf28-F0

Twisted Metal: Black also had some great music
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4OIM5jiIO0

"Unstoppable" by E.S. Posthumus is befitting of a final ultimate weapon
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoaUYcwEpSw

Not /m/, nor a battle track but definitely fitting, I think.

Silent Hill 3 - Break Reality.

http://www.silenthillmemories.net/music/downloads/sh3_aethryix_soundtrack/40%20-%20Break%20Reality.mp3

Really conjures up the imagery for me of a big, mecha army getting ready to really fuck something up.
>>
>>11177072
Thanks. Definitely some good stuff in there.
'Unstoppable' and 'Gateway to Destiny' were what did it for me though. Great tracks.

>>11181470
>>11181540
TY!

Also, I forgot to put this track earlier.
I think it fits pretty well.

Yo. My youtube decided to let me log in so I went ahead and did this. You're welcome.
If your suggestion isn't there, try not to hate me too much.

Also, try not to laugh too hard at my user name. I came up with it years and years ago when I was trying to name some monster I did a design for.

I'm a bit worried that it doesn't quite fit the criteria, but Monster Machine is pretty balls to the wall.

Not quite...

Yes. So much so.

Hey Op, if you want uncaring machines doing machine things with cold efficiency, Mechwarrior 2 and Mercenaries should be right up your alley:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GM3MwpkVYKQ&list=PL3E409CD81FFF6F55

It may be short but this song was the best from Armored Core 4
>>
>>11188447
Whoops forgot the link
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjRdRvYj3_s
>>
So, the list's been updated.

>>11187212
I like that Pyre Light one. The others are good but not quite what I'm after.
>>11188450
Again, a great track but not exactly the criteria I was looking for.
