I always prefer "fantasy" soundtracks (Heroes of Might and Magic, Neverwinter Nights, Jeremy Soule in particular).
Adds some epicness to the affair

Video game soundtracks often deliver - I'm particularly fond of the Guild Wars soundtrack. If you want epic fantasy-inspired rock, I can suggest looking into the symphonic metal movement: bands like Within Temptation, Delain, Sirenia, Serenity, Pythia. If you prefer something more chilled-out, there's some great creative commons instrumental music out there; I particularly recommend Zero Project for being Mage Knight-appropriate:

We prefer hearing mystic pop/folk music - Irish/Scottish style - especially from Loreena McKennitt, Enya, Celtic Woman, ...

We hear the same music when playing other fantasy games like Magic Realm, Wizards, Runebound, etc.

While fellow players slowly and methodically optimize their moves:

I prefer to listen to instrumental music while playing Mage Knight. If I listen to anything with vocals, there's a chance I'll start following the lyrics or singing along, which ends up slowing the game down - and this can be a long game. It could be just because I bought the album at the same time as I bought the game, but I find Mogwai's 'Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will' to be a great soundtrack for Mage Knight. The two are inextricably linked in my mind.

I made a 'Lord of the Rings' pandora page just for this reason. It's just awesome instrumental songs from fantasy and sci fi movies.

I would try Carmina Burana (Carl Orff).

But it may be my nostalgia for the movie Excalibur that helps to make it a good MK soundtrack.

I enjoy newer, somewhat dark, primarily electronic music with MK. For me, the music is a critical, and really fun, part of the immersive MK experience.

Boards of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest, is my favorite. It perfectly captures the post-apocalyptic fantasy adventure theme.

As an MK soundtrack, i also enjoy:
Boards of Canada- Geogaddi
Burial- Untrue
Burial- Kindred
The Field- Cupid's Head
Flying Lotus- Los Angeles
Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge- Twelve Reasons to Die
Portishead- Third

This thread makes me want to make a custom board that reads each hex and, when your hero lands there, changes the music based on what is there. Chips in the tokens and board as well as the mini, all connected to a computer. It'd be nigh impossible but awesome none-the-less. Land on a village, queue village music. Approach a rampaging monster, queue the battle theme!

Incidentally, due to my screen saver, I hear a lot of World of Warcraft music when I play (mainly from Wrath of the Lich King - I have a sick obsession with a lot of the music from that expansion). I don't play WoW anymore - just love my Howling Fjord animated screen saver.
