I had a few basic "criteria", mainly to restrict to songs that were not overly dramatic or distracting (like two steps in hell would be overboard), limited vocals, not too melancholic, exciting and preferably with drums, and of course thematic and interesting. I've only linked to places where I'm certain were uploaded by the copyright owner.

Or try playing with the Sicario film score by Johann Johannsson - it will certainly increase the tension.
Actually, now that I think about it, that album would probably work for any game with tense moments.
i think the soundtrack of Civilisation the PC game has the perfect soundtrack for 7W/7WD.
Rammstein works. Rammstein always works.
I have carefully created a playlist on Spotify. Unlike many, I didn´t pick an entire album and add it to my list, in every album I selected the songs that fit the most.
Hope you guys enjoy it!
Try loading it to melodice.org
There is already one for Duel, but for my taste that is too long and too eclectic, maybe you can load an alternative.
