* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkRFmfvq8co The Templar Courts]] starts up slow, but it builds up suspense as you make your way through the heart of the Templar regime. Then the awesome choir kicks in, with what sounds like gavels in the background. There's also a surprisingly gentle guitar at the end.


* [[https://soundcloud.com/kamilormanjanowski/solaris-vs-lunaris Solaris vs. Lunaris]] captures the duality of the sun and moon so well, you'll wonder whether it's timed to match up with the phases. The drum beat, characteristic of all the gods, defines them as power hungry--yet this music also characterizes them as dueling sisters, instead of the militance of Innocence or the hunger of Kitava. Unfortunately, there isn't a full version of it online yet.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkFLXBOBJrk Legion]] starts out with an ethereal few seconds of a choir as you free the armies from their prisons before bursting into a fast-paced theme with singing in the background. About a minute in, the song gives out to percussion that's reminiscent of swords clashing against each other.

This was originally used in the trailer for Synthesis, and is otherwise saved for the extremely rare Cortex boss battle against the man the song is named after - the reconstructed memory of the man who [[spoiler: unleashed the Elder upon the world.]] It starts off with a small portion of the Memory Nexus theme, but soon raises up into a sweeping, majestic battle theme that perfectly accompanies the fight, which many people deem to be one of the hardest in the whole game.[[/folder]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyNZjoq-l7c The Abyssal Depths]] music brings a creepy, ''Diablo 2''-esque sense of dread to traveling the Abyss and and battling the Elder's forces. The fact that the beat sounds like a ticking clock, combined with the overall "death"/"bone"/"necromancy" theme of the area also helps, as if the music itself is counting down your life.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlT19fMddjc The Grand Arena]]. Fight your way through Daresso's memories to surpass the sword king himself! And the timing of the song often works out to hit the vocal part right when Daresso starts talking about the love of his Lady Merveil, and how she was all he fought for. It would be even more inspiring if you hadn't already murdered Merveil at this point in the story.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMalSKJ39jM The Belly of the Beast]] doesn't feel as epic as many of the entries on this list, but it feels tense and gross--perfectly fitting, since you're delving into the guts of a mass of flesh somehow capable of draining all of the gods' powers. The main melodic riff gets used in many songs included with Fall of Oriath, setting the Beast up as the first step of a long crusade of deicide.
* The fight music for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U577pfFeFI High Templar Avarius]] sounds almost like a gloomy religious march, befitting of the reichy theocratic aesthetics of Oriath. You're not just fighting the High Templar: you're fighting an ''empire''.
