Music or Movie Quotes that set the LOS Mood!!
« on: April 06, 2011, 10:47:52 PM »
This thread has several components:

1) Music to make war by

2) Musical lyrics that reflect you, your philosophy, your preferred race or army, or just LOS battle in general.

3) Movie quotes for recurring situations.

4) Movie quotes for particular situations (and we need th quote and the story)

White Zombie's "More Human Than Human" has a number of applications.

Not necessarily my thing, but I can get into it.

Female Infranite vs Black Empire Roller Derby (PK unlimited)

Would be quite a sight.

I always enjoyed gaming to the 'Akira' soundtrack... works for almost any type of game and no lyrics means little distraction.

My preference was the soundtrack to the movie 'The Rock'.

Back in the day, it was lots of Pantera.   I wouldn't change a thing today (I would go with much better beer.)

Pun acknowledged but unintended: sci fi miniature games go well with heavy metal.

Classical also goes well.  More Wagner, Tchaikovsky, Liszt or maybe Beethoven rather than Mozart etc.

I was never into Static X [to be honest, i just hadn't heard of them] but that was pretty cool. I found this video by them [sorry for the bad format link];

Pretty cool, since it looks like it could be taking place in a giant Machine Complex... :)
I hate people generally, but I like them specifically - John Malkovich

As has been mentioned before, Front Line Assembly was a core part of the LoS experience for us - it is so well suited to The Machine you'd sometimes swear they had played the game if it wasn't for the fact that some of the music pre-dated its release...

I'm gonna expand on this post later, but I found this video at least for 'Millenium' [the video itself is low budget cheese, but focus on the lyrics if you can];

http://youtu.be/dL381E4mhHY

Imagine an Overlord that has created a twisted form of music that attempts to play mindgames with any intruders to its complexes...

The lyrics to it [I've highlighted some key contextual bits in red];

Into Precision
Into The Light We Fade
Into Submission
We All Hallucinate
Into The Ground
We All Dissipate
Into Delusion
We All Segregate

[Chorus:]
Amid All This Confusion
We Lose Sight of The Enemy
Like Evil Gods of Destruction

They Move Through Liquid Transparencies

Disposable Heroes
Men of Yesterday
Disposable Heroes
Are Never Here to Stay

Like Gods of Destruction
They Seek to Violate
Like Machines of Seduction
They Will Regenerate


[Chorus]

The Countdown to Extinction
Will Now Transform Reality
Slowly The Sky Grows Dark
You Slip Into A Final Dream


Into The Wavelength
Come Conspiracy
Into The Wavelength
A Planet Never Free
In Through The Future
Time Grows Weak
Into The Future
The Strong Inheret The Weak

Enya, 'Book of Days'

Makes me think of Valkries and Heros slugging their way through hordes of enemies.

Freedom is the right to speak your mind.

It is also the right to walk away from those you don't want to listen to.

And the True Romance soundtrack, eh Dave?

I was also thinking that Old School Rap works well: Schooly D, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Ice T inter alia.

Why do I think that Fantasian Privateers would love that stuff?

Pulling a quote from another thread about a once-in-a-lifetime moment during a game;

A funny story related to the American 'autofiring' tangent;

As I have mentioned elsewhere in the forum, I used to play music by Front Line Assembly to set a certain 'mood'. They have a penchant for incorporating quotes from various movies into their tunes.

One night JP was using his American [nicely painted] squads, and at a particular moment when a behemoth was about to unload fully on a few of my nightmares, one of the more infamous quotes came up, perfectly timed - it was from the movie Falling Down; "I'm an American - You're a sick *******". The next second he made his dice role and I think he ended up nicely mowing down nearly all the Nightmares he was targeting.  Talk about my 'psychological warfare' strategy backfiring, LOL!

Now here is the infamous song by FLA - Vigilante, complete with a nicely cobbled together compilation of bits from the movie 'Falling Down'. Quote hits at 0:46
