. . . I find it incredibly distracting when I'm DMIng..maybe because my instincts are to throw on a pair of aviator sunglasses, drink beer and fistbang when I hear metal.
FOCUS, my young Padawan.

Or, as Robert Hays once said, "I've got to concentrate-concentrate-concentrate..."

Usually, when I hear metal, it's the sound of someone banging on my armor - with drastically deleterious effects!

"OUCH!! I heard you the FIRST time!!" :D

Anyway, music and gaming DO go together; but WHAT music is a highly individual choice. And on that level, we can ALL agree to disagree, right?

Different strokes for different folks; that's why they make Fords and Chevys!

See ya!

While at Dragon Con this Past Year, I Happened to Pick up a Couple of Great CD's From 'Midnight Syndicate'

www.midnightsyndicate.com/flashmain.htm

The Two Albums I Snagged were "The 13th Hour" (Good for Horror Themes), and "The Official Dungeons and Dragons Roleplaying Soundtrack"...

The First is Nicely Moody with Nifty Sound Effects for Haunted Houses, Grave Yards etc...

the Second has some Stuff that is Reminiscent of the Conan Soundtrack, but also Some "Tavern" Scenes and the Like...

These are pretty Kewl overall, and I Reccomend them as Potential Additions to the already Great Libraries that have been Listed Here and in Other Threads on Music to Game By...

The Midnight Syndicate cd's are pretty good, but when I play D&D, I also like to use the Bauldur's Gate, Bauldur's Gate II, Icewind Dale I, and Icewind Dale II soundtracks that come with the PC games. They are not distracting for RPG. But, if playing Warhammer Fantasy/ skirmish, I think it is best to listen to metal.

Heard Erdenstein playing on Radio Rivendale. They have two CDs out - I purchased "Into the Red".

It was expensive - after shipping and handling, it cost me around $30.00. But worth it. The entire CD is well done, with 22 pieces covering a wide range of situations (although mostly battle themed). The artists set out to record music for D&D, and I think they succeeded.

You can find more here (including a few clips):
www.erdenstern.com/en/index.php

BTW, for context, we also listen to
Conan the Barbarian Soundtrack
Reign of Fire Soundtrack
Braveheart Soundtrack
Last of the Mohicans Soundtrack
Rune: The Official Soundtrack
Dungeons & Dragons - Midnight Synidicate

Cheers,

I recently discovered a group called Nox Arcana, which is similar to Midnight Syndicate (I think they have common roots way backawhen.) I have yet to order their stuff, but I've listened to samples on their website and they sound really good.
