Now for some rock (Music to game to: Black Sabbath)
Among collecting rpg and wargaming material, I also collect records. And you haven't heard Black Sabbath unless you've heard them on vinyl! Sabbath has a lot of moody atmospheric metal that fits into perfectly in to your dungeons and wilderness campaigns. Hell, I may even create a whole gaming world based on Black Sabbath lyrics!
Their self titled album was still somewhat influenced by 60's psychedelia, but was a huge departure from the flower children vision of peace and love. Instead it was a tapestry of fear, dread and paranoia.
Nothing's darker than the song Black Sabbath!
My personal favorite is Volume IV, it's just so heavy and perfect. Just listen to Supernaut!
Here's a good theme for an evil wizard or character NPC!
And finally, Black Sabbath's homage to pig face orcs!
Hmm....I need to hash out some more thoughts on this. It could be interesting.
