Awesome Music / Berserk
Berserk makes you hardcore.

See Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage for the 2000 Dreamcast game's awesome music, and Berserk: The Golden Age Arc for the movie soundtracks' awesome music.

Kenpuu Denki Berserk

  • "Forces" is probably the best place to start listening to Susumu Hirasawa's emotional and atmospheric soundtrack which helped make the '97 anime a classic. It plays during Guts's first raid with the Band of the Hawks, as well as over each On the Next preview, and it makes you feel like you're riding into battle on horseback with the Band of the Hawk.
    • Pretty much any variation of "Forces".
    • Fun fact: "Forces" is actually a reworking of another song by Hirasawa called "Kajiwotore" (Take the Wheel).
    • If you thought Forces and Kajiwotore were badass enough, you should hear it when they're smashed together.
  • Guts's theme from the series is nothing short of beautiful.
  • "Behelit" is an eerie track that captures Griffith's road to darkness.
  • "Earth" is another beautiful theme. It sounds like a perfect theme for the witches and their nature powers, but they are introduced in the manga long after the anime's ending point so it's a very nice coincidence.
  • Berserk is not without its creepy moments as well, as "Monster" and "Fear" show.
  • And then there's "Murder", which plays as it's all going to hell for the Hawks. Made even more eerie with that Ominous Latin Chanting going on.
  • Need we be reminded of the non-Susumu awesomeness that is "Tell Me Why" by Penpals and "Waiting So Long" by Silver Fins?

Berserk: Millennium Falcon Hen Seima Senki no Shō

  • "Sign" is the dark and foreboding opening theme, which many fans name as their favorite Hirasawa track. A slower, more triumphant version plays near the end and is just as awesome. The awesomeness doesn't stop here, for there is a third version of the song too!

Berserk (2016)

  • "Inferno" is the opening of the 2016 anime adaptation, and it is glorious. The lyrics perfectly encapsulate the struggle of Guts and his eternal desire for revenge, and they're set to a frenzied beat. A perfect way to introduce the series to a newer, younger generation.
  • "Ashes" serves as Guts' Theme Music Power-Up for the 2016 anime, again thanks to the genius of Hirasawa. Try not to re-create the battle scenes in your mind with this adrenaline-pumping track. You'll fail.
  • A hard-rocking remix of "Blood and Guts" from the movie trilogy serves as Guts's primary Leitmotif.
