What is the most Warhammer 40k song you can think of?
This song describes the HH & 40k so well. Hell, it's even in the name.
>Implying 40k is metal
40k is orchestral scores and nothing less. The official music does it right:
some sort of Horus Heresy flashback
>orchestral scores and nothing less
>less than orchestral scores
Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking orchestral music, but you gotta educate yourself about symphonic metal before you start spouting off like that, bucko.
I've always imagined this as being the soundtrack of the end of the Siege of Terra.
Emperor goes down at 2:00
Pius charges somewhere in the middle
Emperor zaps Horus at 3:00
How 'bout I take you to church, then burn it down with you still inside?
depends on how you see 40k, I guess.
orchestra is too epic for 40k in my mind. as I see 40k as grotesque comedy, I consider low-grade rock/metal more fitting for it. either that, or parodies of real songs, like what those russian guys linked.
I bet you didn't even listen to the song. What's your obscure metal song that has orchestral influences?
I don't know about 40k, but this clearly fits into Warhammer Fantasy somewhere.
>I bet you didn't even listen to the song.
I did, and it's exactly the title: a song about arson. I guess you could try and make it out to be a psyker talking during the first half, but that's pretty much it. Overall, too contemporary and not nearly grandiose enough for 40K.
Also, Hozier is hipster garbage.
>What's your obscure metal song that has orchestral influences?
>ignores all the Sabaton and Manowar being posted by multiple different people
Obscure if you don't listen to metal, maybe.
>Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis
>no Ork Song
ALL YOU GITZ IZ MUCKIN' ABOUT!
Debauchery has a shitload of Chaos songs. Blood for the blood god, Blood god rising, Blood god kills, Kings of carnage, Ironclad declaration of war, Kill maim burn, but I think this submitted song covers 40k as a whole.
I cannot be the only one that hears this and immediately thinks of the dark angels trying their damnedest to try and capture Cypher.
Goddamn I would kill to see a video of someone actually doing that. A comedy skit of the dark angels trying to capture him set to this music.
Actually, I normally listen to other music while watching that. So far, the closest I've found is listening to AC/DC's "Hell's bells" while watching it fits it almost perfectly. Almost.
You are all Emperor-damned heretics
except maybe this guy
But anyway, the only music ever to truly capture the essence of Warhammer 40,000 was the soundtrack to the 1990s videogame Chaos Gate:
(my personal favourite starts at 4:20 on the first video)
>dat blood raven squad corvus reporting in
Just for you anon.
I like to think that contrary to popular belief cultist music its pretty chillax and relaxing yet somewhat dark.
>Cultist of Slaanesh song:
>Cultist of Tzeentch
KE KE KE YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAH!
I claim this thread in the name of the Wild Riders of Saim Hann!
At least try to post relevant content!
The Lyrics literally include:
Carpet bombing cities
And grinding them to dust
Able men and women
Will all be victims
Everyone will suffer
In the wake of their attack
Bombers show no mercy
A land in ruin
Homes are turned to rubble
When the airstrike has been approved
Facing their destruction
Fear the black wings of death
Rage of the heavens
Death from above
Cities ruined turned to dust
All has been lost
Rise from the ashs and strike
Doesn't that SCREAM Exterminatus?
Neat too, but this music is not really for fucking massive battles where thousands of souls die every second and rivers of blood reshape the battlefield on the go.
Mein Negro! Final Liberation is what got me into 40k. This one's a good'un too.
HEAR THIS DIRGE AND DESPAIR
>song of khorn
Blood god is not PLEASED
You, I like you.
Commissar trying to cheer up his regiment, with everyone slowly joining in.
Anything space wolf I listen to these guys.
In all honesty, the Battle Hymn of the Republic. A military marching song, but the lyrics really do it. Think of it as a Guardsman song.
>Mine Eyes have seen the Glory of the coming of the lord
Obvious reference to Emps in this context
>He is trampling out the vineyard where the grapes of wrath are stored
Think of it as an allusion to battling chaos in the warp.
>He as loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword
A reference to His psychic prowess in battle.
>His Truth is marching on.
A reference to the Imperial Creed, and the concept that man is superior to all.
>I have seen him the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
>They have builded him an altar in the Evening dews and Damps
>I can read his rigtheous sentence in the dim and flaring lamps
>His Day is marching on.
Testament to the massive size of the Guard and the strength of their belief. As well as a potential more subtle reference to how the guardsman normally has his own personal flashlight.
You get the point.
Slaanesh's theme song. I still need a box of tissues after listening to this. Though, considering the lyrics, it could still fit if it was Nurgle, but only if he was a woman.
this is a good song for space marines. Especially fits if it's for blood angels.
this is a good song for a tzeetchnian cultist
but if we're going to go for rock songs, I'm surprised no one's posted this yet.
I think this would be a pretty good song to sum up Kharn
I think that the huge breadth of the 40k setting allows for a lot of creativity when it comes to theme. I like seeing stuff like this>>44706744
because it feels new and fresh. Not that here isn't a place for orchestrals and trashy metal, of course.
This thread has really reminded me how important music is to capture a setting. Listening to some of these and I can appreciate the cools bits of 40k.
I'm thinking right now about how Humanity are the consummate survivors, hanging on for dear life and resorting to zealotry and xenophobia because multiple galaxy wide apocalypses have nearly ended them. Nobody in the Imperium is cruel just because they are dicks- it's necessary for survival. Yeah, the fact that they lobotomize fuckers and plug them into machines is pretty disturbing, but they have to so they don't recreate fucking terminator. Again.
I really like this setting.
anyway, here's some shit:
This is seriously the most cringy stuff I've come across in ages... Especially the lame russian guard stuff, fucking hell.
This is why nobody cool is in the hobby, this is why everyone calls you neckbeards, nerds and losers. I've stopped 40k gaming just to not be associated with horrible social outcasts. This hobby is so cringeworthy, but everybody complains about the game and fluff, instead of the complete disgusting retards it draws in.
Luckily I still have friends who game in private.
This song fits the Dark Eldar extremely well.
