What music do you usually listen to, either in mental preparation of wargames, or during the wargame activity itself, or to wind down after a succesful gaming experience ?

Give the name of the composer (if applies), the name of the group or orchestra, the name of the director (if applies), and year and title of the record or song itself.

Mention only music that you really own.

None of this "internet streaming", please.

Real wargamers relish what they truly posess.

cool

EDIT: added a few specifications.

I have discovered quite recently this remarquable group called Tribulation.

Their 2015 record, The Children of the Night, is simply amazing.

One of the best records I have heard in quite a long time.

Not only for die-hard Metal fans, it has an appeal to a much wider audience.

On par with the best of Metallica, IMHO.

Sabaton, great band anyway but also there's a good chance there's a song specific to what's on the table.

Depends - solo - Death Cab for Cutie. With the son - Three Days Grace. Been known to play some Linkin Park or even Tool if it's one of those bloody chits flying everywhere kind of game

Wow...

On this side, Darkthrone remains a favourite before/after any wargaming activity. I recommend 'Lesser Men' on the album Underground Resistance.

I've been a big Pantera kick recently as well. Glad to see so much good taste in this thread!

The last thing I listened to while reading rules was Tche Belew by Hailu Mergia & The Walias Band ( Here is the whole album on Youtube)...its super chill Ethiopian jazz and it went well with reading the rules for Chad: The Toyota Wars (which I should've finished a month ago...) as well as Empire of the Silk Road. (I prefer not to have lyrics...or at least lyrics I can understand, while reading)

Black Sun Empire.

Don't own it, don't have to. Their podcasts are on YouTube.

"Breach" is appropriate for breaching the West Wall in Beyond the Rhine. Or a bank heist. Just saying.

If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much!

Are we allowed radio stations? I mostly listen to BBC radio 6. They play an eclectic selection of older, slightly more obscure music, as well as newer stuff that is destined to become older slightly obscure music.

I don't often get to listen to music when gaming. In recent years, I am playing solitaire when this happens.

I love Hard Rock from the late 1960's to the early 90's. Metal, Progressive and Psychedelic are all great but I often find them distracting. I find myself singing along to the songs in my head so I prefer to play music without lyrics.

Bach's Brandenburg Concertos

Vivaldi's 7 Concerti for woodwind and strings

Both are performed by The English Concert with conductor Trevor Pinnock.
They help me concentrate.

Wow. Everyone into metal. I like to listen to movie soundtracks like Band Of Brothers (Michael Kamen)and Lord Of The Rings (Howard Shore). Metal makes my head hurt and stunts my growth.

The soundtrack for Conan the Barbarian would be a great choice.

Le Sacre Du Printemps
Igor Stravinsky

Charles Dutoit

But then I'm taken away by the music and fail to continue my game. That's when I'm playing games like Combat Commander.
If I'm playing Nuklear Winter 68 then it's stuff like Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Cryptopsy...industrial music, but then I'm taken away by the music!

But I always go back to Stravinsky! This in my opinion would be the first heavy metal progressive piece of music, that is of the 20th century!

I never seem to finish my games!wow

Last night stretched the wings a bit - played a couple of New Found Glory albums and then topped it off with a round of Empire of the Sun - the music group, not the game.
