Default Emperor's Childrean and Metal

Well as all the people who owns Chaos know, Emperor's children are 'turned' on by very loud and very discordant sounds. The louder and more discordent it is, the more 'turned ' on they are. And thus they are turned on by the sounds of war and tortured people screams.

So the interesting question is do they listen to metal when they are not in combat( provided that they don't have any people to torture)? And do they have metal bands?

I always imagined the Emps Children listening to music that sounds rather like Death and Thrash Metal.

Not most other types though as most Metal really isn't all that discordant.

Slayer, Dimmu Borgir.

That's what I would rock out to if I was a Slaaneshi bondage freak. Old slayer though, Angel of Death. None of this new stuff.

I always take an old-school Moorcockian view of Chaos in 40k, so I imagine that Noise Marine music would be literally mind-blowing, and not even the most twisted of modern metal or hard dance music would compare. You'd have music with the impact of an artillery barrage and the intricate complexity of the craziest fractal image you can imagine, all managing to be both sublime and shocking at the same time. Lots of atonals and pounding beats too, I'd guess. I reckon a Noise Marine would yawn at all Earth music.

I think they would be all about the Black Metal. Old Mans Child, Cradle Of Filth (Old), Witchery, Deicide , and so on and so forth. All the "hardcore" and "blasphemous" music they can listen to in a lifetime.

You have to remember that these aren't just disgruntled teenagers and crazy Scandinavians rebelling against sedate suburbia. We're talking about genetically engineered human warriors with augmented hearing, who are dedicated to a God that embodies striving for the most extreme sensations possible. These dudes have been fighting wars for millenia, so ask yourself which is more extreme: Black Metal, or battlefield munitions exploding everywhere while tanks rumble around and people scream as they are killed or wounded? That's not even mentioning the deranged Daemons they'd have cavorted with down the years. To match those experiences, their music would have to be so insane and shocking that even the most obscene Black Metal would by comparison sound like a merry little Christmas Carol sung by pixies on valium.

Yea, they'd probably make A.C. sound like children's music. That's the most obscene band I can think of. But there may be worse out there.


(if you don't know A.C., don't ask. Not gonna explain it here)

Anyone heard of Nial? Black Metal band out of Tennessee or something. Very interesting sound.
