Disco of the Ruinous Ones: Help me build a special little sound track for the each of the Warhammer 40K Gods of Chaos.
A good buddy of mine is running my household a Dark Heresy/Rogue Trader game at some point in the near future, and has requested that we help out with music. In particular, he needs a set of tunes that embodies each of the Chaos Gods. He's specified no lyrics, just instrumental or unobtrusive non-English choral. We need a fat juicy playlist for each of the four Ruinous powers:
, god of decadence, lust and carnal delights, whose playlist so far is leaning towards beautiful music with threatening undertones, heavy on things like harp and violins, soaring voice-as-instrument, airy and lovely but starting to fray at the edges;
who is disease and lively decay, whose playlist is full of weird erratic fat sounding dirty electronica, the sort that you can't really tell if it's being played on a Moog or a set of wet drums in the bottom of a cotton bale. Flatulent, cheerfully noxious stuff;
, the dark architect and lord of magic and machination, who is being favoured with repetitious, almost Baroque harpsichord and Latin chants, heavy and intricate. Almost ecclesiastic, if your god was the god of change, evolution and intrigue.
And last but not least is Khorne
, the Blood God and god of war, bombastic and needlessly destructive and represented here with drum, brass, blaring fighty kind of music. I need the most help with him because I just don't listen to that sort of music as a whole.
Most of this is erring towards electronica - with the exception of the choral stuff we've found for for Slaanesh, even the classical instruments are largely synthesized. It's mostly to go on in the background while we're dealing with their cultists, presumably. We haven't started yet so who knows? Basically nothing that is going to drown out the GM or the other players, hard task for ole Khorne there, but he's always been a bit of a jerk really so I'm not that surprised. We already have the Dawn of War soundtrack sorted too.
I've largely been pillaging soundtracks for movies and games (Braid and Portal have been surprisingly useful) and more along that line would be rad.
Any and all help gratefully received. My character doesn't have a name yet, so just sayin', get me inspired and we'll see.
