There is always the Dawn of War soundtrack.  I quite like the Imperial Creed song.  Very majestic.


But that's a bit obvious for this thread.  

When I think of 40k music - my mind goes to electronic music - and in particular Industrial and EBM (a sub genre of Industrial - it stands for Electronic Body Music).  This music suffers from an overabundance of war/militia audio foley, film clips, and lyrics.  I guess 'suffers' is the wrong word for 40k.  We might as well say it 'benefits.'  Anyway - while the war themes hit ad nausia in this genre - I still love the genre itself.  

If you want to go dark and foreboding - try some EBM 'militia' themed music.  

VNV Nation has several songs that remind me of 40k (Imperial Guard mostly).

Honour
Afterfire
Requiem QCN (This one is in Latin)
Fearless
Kingdom
Legion
Sentinal
Serial Killer

These are the ones that are most reminiscent of 40k to me.  Pretty much any of their songs work.  I've also used some of their lyrics on purity seals... (Especially Requiem QCN - that one is actually an old hymn from the 1600's).

Haujobb has a few songs that could work.  "Solutions for a Small Planet" is probably the best album for this mix.  Their Album Vertical Theory is also great and has a song called "Faith in Chaos."  

Beborn Beton sings about 'alien' encounters a lot.  Their album Truth is pretty much flooded with songs talking about that theme.  

Covenant's Modern Ruin album sets a good 40k mood with a nice variety of beats and melidies.  Their album Northern Lights includes "Northern Lights" and "Call the Ships to Port" which I would throw in a 40k mix.  

Then of course there's Skinny Puppy.  (Love in Vein, Killing Game, and Inquisition off Last Rights Album).  Greater Wrong of the Right has an appropriate theme for the 40k world as well, and it's less 'harsh' than Last Rights.

Apoptygma Berzerk's early album Apocalyptic Manifesto has a few songs:  

Electronic Warfare & Burnin' Heretic are the two most applicable.  
Their album Welcome to Earth is a little less Industrial.  It has songs that are appropriate such as "Star Sign" Eclipse, and Paranoia,

Front Line Assembly's Millennium album, including songs like:
Search and Destroy
This Faith
Plasma Springs

Final Impact on the Tactical Neural Implant album... (actually much of that album as well...)

What else - Funker Vogt's album Maschine Zeit has songs like... Maschine Zeit - Nuclear Winter, Sins, Gunman, Cold War, Black Market Dealers... Zeit...

I could be here all night.  Check out the following groups as well:  Nitzer Ebb, Komor Kommando, Assemblage 23, Terrorfakt... The list goes on in the EBM genre for 40k really...

If you're looking for something progressive and interesting, but less EBMish/Industrial go for Unkle's 'War Stories' album. Psyence Fiction is also a great album with a few war/battle themed songs.

Crystal Castle's Air Wars reminds me of 40k as well if you don't want 'dark.'  

And OF COURSE there is the song my friend got in my head today.  Falco/After the Fire's "Der Kommissar"

"Don't turn around... Der Kommissar's in town!" LOL.  

I have so much more but I'm going to stop here.  I hope this helps...




I should make this a Facebook meme...


I hope this helps...

I've seen it used in commercials (PS3) and a few 40K fan vids.  It's pretty awesome for IP or SM.

thx, Lamia.

With the electronic music: A lot of it is a bit too "techno" and soft.
But it could fit into a club for rich nobility where they listen to "dangerous lower hive"
music and fell a certain thrill.

For the Thousand Sons i always liked Therion.

They mostly sing about occult and mystic stuff.

But something with less "rock" would be good. Occult and mystic themes and
instruments that are as strange and weird as possible.

Age of Shadows and Liquid Eternity by Ayreon both have lyrics that make me think of the Eldar and the Fall

While the game's art direction, setting and vocal tracks are utterly alien to Warhammer 40000, Blazblue has some magnificent rock and orchestral songs:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppxQGsk1Y5w Memory of Tears, which might suit the Sisters of Battle or some such.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jevL08ECdvo&feature=related Gluttony Fang, which would probably fit Chaos Space Marines rather well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NO0kjuQPUg&feature=related and Condemnation Wings which might be good for the Inquisition (though perhaps a little too fast paced)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fnRmD23eJA The track Frontline, which oddly enough strikes me as a Guard theme, especially later when more Orchestral elements are introduced.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3F_a9t0JsKo&feature=related And the aptly named Awakening the Chaos, which sounds less like a Chaos theme and something more Imperial.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbB0UuldYLQ&feature=related the track Under Heaven's Destruction, which seems like a good track for battle.

Of course, you're mileage might vary (and if you don't want to read nonsense about the Characters and Story, ignore the comment sections. on the vids.)

I was going to mention VNV Nation, Front Line Assembly and some of the others, but then I noticed that Commissar Stein had got there first.  Commissar Stein, I salute you for your excellent taste.

Feindflug are also potentially the right sort of thing - very dark, heavy, militaristic electro-industrial, a lot of it about the horrors of mechanised warfare.

Tyske Ludder are in a vaguely similar vein, and worth looking at.

There's also Heimataerde, who mix electro-industrial/EBM with medieval instruments and a morbid fascination with the Crusades.

Works well as VNV has Roman Kingdom/Republic/Empire as a big inspiration and that was a big 40K inspiration also.

I would add "Non-Stop Violence" also.

Works well due the Cold War inspiration that works well with 40K - war is lurking somewhere, even if ATM you are nice and well.

Well. If we're talking Space Marines, they are after all Warrior Monks for all intents and purposes, albeit ones wearing power armour. So I think this little ditty sums up the ever present background atmosphere inside the great halls and corridors of those vast cathedral battleships.

Warhammer Music Vol 1

Ok so I compiled my favorites from the list provided in this thread.

There were a lot of good songs, some are not available on Spotify yet (probably a regional thing) and other I couldn't find at all.

I also tried to make it flow in some sort of order that builds to an epic conclusion. So that is also why some of the songs didn't make it in the final cut. Let me know what you all think.

And after a while maybe someone else can compile Vol 2 with the songs I missed.

Enjoy,
chwbcc

Was Two Steps from Hell already mentionet? They make great, epic music. One of my favs (and very 40k'ish) is this one: Titan Dune).

Another band that is very ... impressive, is the band Van Canto. They're doing A-Capella Metal. Yeah, that's right. I've seen them live and they're awesome. One of their 40k'ish songs is e.g. their cover of "Fear of the Dark".
