Good Ambient Music?

OneAngryMushroomOneAngryMushroom Member Posts: 564
I'm Dungeon Mastering, for the first time, for a bunch of first time PnP players. (Brilliant choice of first DMing, I know.) and I'm really trying to set the mood for dungeons and fights, so I figured that some good ambient music would be the right way to go, but I just can't find anything that fits. I'm trying to set up a "You'll die here. Cold, alone, and far away from home." feel.
So what I'm asking is, does anyone know any good ambient music?

    @Magnus_Grelich & @Shandyr, thank you, thats exactly the type of stuff I'm looking for.

    @Kamigoroshi, sorry but I can't use that in my current campaign setting but, if I ever take the party to hell that's the first track I'll play.

    I think they might've been joking.:D

    This one isn't quite right, perhaps... but would certainly good for a chase/escape from the dungeon:

    Don't worry I understand you @OneAngryMushroom: this elevator music is just too horrifying for mortal ears!

    How about some cthulhullan Nox Arcana to lift your players spirits?


    Although the sample tracks of Torment: Tides of Numenera could work for you as well.


    Or have some of one of my favourite bands: Two Steps From Hell!

    Where do you guys find this stuff? I spent over an hour looking and all I found was bad trance music, that and my own Cthulhu ambiance. I want to run a Cthulhu campaign just so I can use it to be honest.

    Well, I have a large collection of strange music. I would recommend looking at the following: Mike Oldfield, Laurie Anderson, Jean Michel Jarre, Katiejane Garside, Boards of Canada. They all have pretty ambient, strange and sometimes unsettling music.:)

    As a little bonus, this is the same track in reverse:

    @Magnus_Grelich It's nice but I thinks it's a bit to immersion breaking. I also found this



    Which is pretty much exactly the stuff I want

    http://music4yourvids.co.uk/freemusic.html apparently that site is all music composed for free use on YouTube videos, but maybe you could find something suitable there?

    Oh yes, you die here all alone and no one will care.

    ehm...I know it probably won't really help, but I played one whole BGEE play through listening to AC/DC... I suppose that gets their blood pumping too.
    Doesn't really work unless you start your DM-ing in a Tavern during the gig of "Underdark Metal Band"

    Most anything from Midnight Syndicate and Nox Arcana should do the trick. Midnight Syndicate has an official D&D soundtrack that's good for most adventures. I prefer their 13th Hour, Gates of Delirium, Realm of Shadows, and Vampyre albums for darker/gothic settings. Like @kamigoroshi posted, Nox Arcana's Necronomicon is good as well. Their first album, Darklore Manor, is still my favorite by them.

    For more militaristic or battle-oriented ambient music, I recommend Trivium's Heldentod (from Pièce Héroique) and Impervim, or anything from Arditi or Legionarii.
