Let us continue the relaxing with some additional great tunes from the gaming world.
Fallout got many iconic songs, but one that always stood out to me is Metallic Monks (Lost Hills).
If you listen closely you hear it tell the story of the world of Fallout. Marching boots, an air-raid alarm, and a combination of the droning wasteland -esque music it makes for an awesome tune, and a piece of great storytelling.
Baldur’s Gate series is a favorite of many and is another title that got many good songs, but one that always stood out for me is the music played during the fight with the dragon in BGII.
If this tune doesn’t tell you immediately that you are in for an epic fight, I don’t know what will. It has a very menacing and imposing quality, which perfectly fits the beast you are about to fight.
Next up is Stellaris with Faster Than Light, and we actually got some singing in this one.
It perfectly sets the mood for the upcoming space odyssey you will take part of. I wouldn’t say the lyrics are world-shattering in any way, but it fits the song and setting. It’s a slow-building song, but when the crescendo hits, oh my. It’s a nice song with good vocals and impressive structure with awesome synth music that might even create some kind of longing in you – a longing for space exploration.
Then the last tune for now, and Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus with Warriors of Mars will take that spot.
This tune is just badass, and for being somewhat of a budget game, it got a soundtrack out of this world. When this song kicks in while fighting evil Necrons, you know you have been blessed by the Omnissiah, and that there is a good chance of winning.
And that is all for now. Watch out for volume three in the future!
