Wanna suggest music for Minas Tirith!?

Posted: April 5, 2011 by Hannibal[SPA] (Rafuron) in ZE LOTR Minas Tirith

Hi all guys.

Sorry for not showing new pics nor posting new information neither ( I was working full day with the university); but now, I have a lot, a lot of free time, and many of that free time is going to be completly focused working on Minas Tirith! I don’t wanna spend more than the necesary time with the songs selection, nor miss some great songs I may not think about myself so…. Please, help me with this! 🙂 The LOTR songs are easy to choose, and I will put 2 or 3 of them; but I need some other music not from LOTR, to put in some places like defenses, darky interiors, outdoors, streets, etc…
Why not from LOTR you may ask? Well, because those I can choose them myself, and not everyone likes LOTR, and even if you do, it can get boring listening to the same LOTR songs again and again.

So, that’s it! I need songs with these characteristics:

  • Not from LOTR OST.
  • Without voices/electric guitars/etc… Just classic music or from movies or games with the needed style.
  • A nice example: the Mako Reactor song in hard, after the elevator, it’s a song from Kingdom Hearts.
  • In case of epic songs, I prefer the songs without excessive choir or those “random-epic-music” that sound all the same,  but having one or two awesome ones like Serenata Immortale on Predator could be great.


Thanks 🙂 I was going to add some pictures, but I think that is better to wait until the map is almost finished (arround 95%) so you see a more final look on them, instead of images without lights and/or details.

Post a comment with your songs suggestions! I will be waiting for them!

    Requiem of a dream as i have already mentioned (was used for the trailers of both return of the king and the two towers, but it is not from LOTR)

    Betrayal or Darkness that lurks in our Minds from Silent Hill 2 for something creepy

    Battle on the Big Bridge or Decisive Battle from Final Fantasy

    Just some of the ones i can think of right now

  2. xD34tHRowZ says:

    I like the boss theme of FFVI =P

  3. xD34tHRowZ says:

    I think its a good theme for a boss but.. see if it goes to good use on your map =)

  4. Cazador says:

    Serenata Immortale owns all ❤

  5. xD34tHRowZ says:

    But that is already used on Predator =(

    Hi !
    I think soundtracks from the film Gladiator would really match with your map and with LOTR. I have taken one from the first battle but there are a lot of good one in the film.

    At 5:00 minutes, it would be epic in a defense !

  8. Thanks for the list :). Requiem for a Dream, is the most listened song in the world xD The silent hill 2 songs are fucking amazing, I would put the first one in Paranoid at Silent hill moment (to alternate with the other), that’s the most creepy song i have heard. The Betrayal… this song gives me chicken skin, I heard it in the game, the most epic moment of SH2 ( I put it on my list of possible songs). The rest of songs seems a bit midi.

  9. That fits perfectly with Mako Reactor ZM. Good song, I save it on my list. Thx

  10. Nice song, but some parts remembers instantly to Matrix xD I can’t put it on Minas Tirith, but thx.

  11. Gunther…Maybe for Extreme most epic moment on Minas Tirith… xD

  12. Gladiator is epic for battles and defenses, but the problem is that everyone have seen that movie and they will recognize it inmediately; in contrast, random music of other games wouldnt be recognized easily. Thx for the post.

    Harry Potter:





  14. The 1º song of Inception is perfect, I will use it for the map. The first one of Harry and the last of Inception have some amazing parts, I will use them also maybe. Thx

    and this

  30. Hi folks, I heard all the songs and I this is the list:
    – Shadow of the colossu sountrack – the opened … ( for sure , this is the best one)
    – Inception: #9 Dream with a Dream ( for sure )
    – Attack On Arrakis ( for sure )
    – The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind theme (possible ) (> 0:58)
    – Heroes of Might and Magic 3 Music: Combat 3 (for sure / possible)
    – Rome Total War Music “Romantic Battle” (for sure / possible)

    I have 2 some LOTR songs in my final list. And my friend Danielot (who selected the Mako Reactor OST) send me 3 songs , and two of them are nice. So I have like 10 songs, I will use more (maybe) because I wanna alternate.
    If you wanna suggest more music you can; listen the “for sure” songs to have a better reference.
    Thank you all!
