    Need dark, gothic-feel music

    I need some dark, gothic-feel background music for my next gaming session. Something that resembles O Fortuna or the LotR soundtrack (the spooky parts with the Ringwraiths). Modern music is also good, as long as it is gritty and disturbing, without any silly lyrics (something you could use on an Event Horizon-like adventure). Songs in Latin are the best.

    Any suggestions?
    "Ceterum censeo Shadowdalem esse delendam"

    black aria by danzig if you can find it. bladerunner soundtrack may be too futuristic but could work. conan the barbarian soundtrack is always good. surprisingly, the interview with the vampire soundtrack works well too, as long as you cut it off before axl rose starts in on sympathy for the devil...

    Well, I guess you could try Gregorian chants. . . They're in latin and have a definite lonely feel to them, especially if they were recorded in a cathedral to give the resonance of the building an important role. For something with actual music, I might suggest Henryk Gorecki. His Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of the Sorrowful) actually crossed over to pop music charts when it was released in the early nineties. Also his composition titled Misere is equally dark and lamenting.

    Try searching "gothic" at http://www.mp3.com since they have tons of new goth bands. Also, try some of Rob Zombie's stuff.

    Anything by Midnight Syndicate would work great.
    I hear what you say, and although the words are there, I think I will truely understand you, when I hear you scream those words. And you will scream. And you will scream.

    Check out my page, Hall of Adventures and click on the Music link. The picture of the blond girl is Carol Tatum of Angels of Venice. Click that and the song you want it "Sins of Salome"

    Sisters of Mercy (First and Last and Always, Floodland albums)

    Nosferatu (Inside the Devil is their best song, followed by The Wicker Man)

    Gothic Rock I and II (2 CD compilation sets from Cleopatra Records, includes Ave Dementia by the Marionettes and Inside the Devil/Wicker Man by Nosferatu)
