Looking for stuff that just makes you shiver a bit when you listen to it. Creepy but cool.

Also check this old thread.

About a third of the rest of the game's tracks are just as good. The original Alien vs. Predator didn't need BGM to be scary, so none of this was actually in the game, believe it or not. Then the sequel rolled around, the players were spoiled with flashlights, so they finally got to find a place for what they'd composed earlier.

Self-loathing and sandwiches.
A great example of drone/dark ambient used masterfully are the Playstation soundtracks of Doom and Final Doom as well as the one from Doom 64 (on the N64 of course).

You can find them all here :

Lightless depths, icy-cold rivers, the earth's slow breath moving through winding caverns. Chitin clicking on stone, pale shapes darting down side passages, an echoing scream.

I wish the sound effects of the game didn't so overshadow those great atmospheric tracks. It's a huge shame really.

All the old paintings on the tombs, they do the sand dance, don't you know...

It's the Over Lord!
[up][up]If it's like a lot of other games, there are separate controls for music and effect volumes. Otherwise, they messed up when making the game, becuase most, if not all, games should have separate controls for the two sound tracks.

Yeah, the only issue is the music in other areas of the game is perfectly loud, and adjusting every time I enter a cave does not sound appealing. I just wish those particular tracks were themselves louder.

How about the music from the first Diablo? That was quite creepy (except for the cave levels; that one was pretty cool).
I really hated traveling here.

That's my dream. It's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight razor and surviving.

[up]Ah, memories. Last year we started posting the appropriate tracks during the final three days of the US debt deadline, and some tropers were freaking out from the combination of the looming fiscal catastrophe and Majora-based PTSD.

Let's walk through the castle of a civilization that was great, until it was not allowed to be. A vision of majesty undone by cosmic accident. Something inhuman, and resentful of humanity.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
