So what tunes do you fine people use when you are getting ripped to pieces?

I have been using Demon-Dark Souls and Bloodborne soundtracks. Cliché choices yes but hey they work! devil

And since every epic boss deserves an epic theme, i have considered giving own music themes for the Butcher, Phoenix, Kings Man/Hand. And offcource the big bad Watcher (which me and my group wouldn't hear often) For the other two "small" zoo animals, those two can have some generic themes ^^

For the Butcher: Dark Souls- Four Kings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xpreRWuUWo

Phoenix: Bloodborne- Cleric Beast https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICSk8-pJkX8

The Watcher probably needs something extremely tragic and sad, since he means almost certain death angry

And for the Kings Boys, something majestic. Majestic and deadly robot

Cliché choices are still good choices, I approve.
Maybe the butcher soundtrack is, imho, a bit too epic.
I imagine some kind of slow, pounding and relentless music (like the guy himself).

I'm particularly fond of the Ebrietas OST from Bloodborne, I think it could
work for the Watcher:

OT: guys, don't you wish for a (very unlikely) crossover between Kingdom Death and the Souls/Bloodborne universes?
Like a Screaming fur Armor set in Dark Souls or some kind of special nemesis for KD?

I'm kinda leaning towards using the Akira soundtrack for this. Especially the Fight against the Clown song

That did cross my mind that the tempo is a bit too fast for Butch. Maybe i'm just too in love with that track and i want to use it in everything devil

And the Clown theme is good suggestion. Tetsuo theme would be cool too (not for Butch but maybe for the Watcher) Since it's a mix of strange/epic and just plain scary.

I've been throwing all kinds of things on there.

COIL: Ape of Naples
DEAD CAN DANCE
Demon's Souls OST
Some Enya (who has some weird atmospheric, darker stuff)
Einstürzende Neubauten

Lots of very cool, atmospheric things. Still tweaking though.

I often choose certain Suundtracks as background music for boardgaming. Found out that too stressful or dramatic music is annoying though and i switch it of after 10 min.

For KD i created 3 playlists for Hunt, Showdown and Settlement phase based on tracks from the soundtracks of "Witcher 2" and "Witcher 3" PC-Game. I´m very satisfied as the style and atmosphere fit´s pretty good imo

Nice call on Akira, Scott. has a nice weird vibe to it.

And no, I don't think that moody fantasy sounding stuff enhances games, it just sounds like you're listening to a sound track.

Then again, I feel like mostly board and miniature games that take themselves too seriously end up seeming overwrought, since it's still just playing with toy soldiers.

Try some dark jazz like 'The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble' or 'Bohren & Der Club Of Gore'.

Not yet played the game but this is a great idea.

Why not use "Maiden Astraea" from Demon's Souls for The Watcher?

Lisa Gerard from Dead Can Dance, half of her music is perfect for Cthulhu games and similar titles, at least in my opinion.
