Default Necron Theme Music

What is your Necron army's theme music?

I found a thread about this on another forum, and then found out that we didn't have one here, so I figured I'd start one because I love listening to music and finding new stuff.

For me I think it would have to be some of the calmer, disquieting music by <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vM7hD...thew</a> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhBvp...tner</a>, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9kP1...ated">Peter Andersson</a>, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWV4m...ed">Stratvm Terror</a>, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q79VK...mord</a>, and etc. To me these all fit the silent dread that a marching Necron force brings. But for the moments of destruction I think Ryuichi Sakamoto's song <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OU5F...Coro</a> (found in the Appleseed soundtrack) does the job nicely. I'm not too sure yet, but I might also put horror movie scores like those done by Goblin (<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzU3j...iria</a>, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ2bfnujqUU">Profondo Rosso</a>, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2yGL...ombi</a>) or the main theme to <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tfHXobSQNI">The Shining</a> in my list since a well done horror score can incite unease and fear with ease (are you sensing a theme in my selections?).

If you didn't notice I provided links so you guys can give my current selections a listen (if you want more examples of certain artists feel free to ask). I think I can add more to my "Necron Playlist" if I actually bother to go through my music library, but until then I'd like to hear from the rest of you guys.

What songs (if any) are Necron? Please provide an explanation as well, as this could be a fun way of revealing each of our personal takes on our beloved 'crons.

You'd think, being an Eldar, that'd be my specialty. Seeing as it was introduced as an Eldar exclusive rule (Craftworld and Dark)... and then Gaunts got it... and now it's all over the bloody place.

You could have Skylept then, thats still exclusivly Eldar isnt it?

As for Necron Music, Im not sure that the usual 40k choices of metal and rock will work as well as they normally would.

Haha, I guess I could =P

It depends how much personality you want to feel when doing your 'Crons. A lot of generic 40k metal - for example, Bad To The Bone, also in Terminator - has a lot of personality, it suits Space Marines well, for example. Necrons don't. For Necrons I'd go for dark, industrial, instrumental tracks rather than the bombastic vocal metal, it doesn't connect with their theme in the same way it does with say, Space Marines.

Agreed, instumental is definatly the way to go.

The annoying thing is i can even hear the music in my head, but cant think of what its called. Its by Disturbed, but without the vocals.

For SMs I always hear Indestrucible by Disturbed, it just works.

For me it has to be the chorus of this (even with my poor rolling). :P

Since I run a lot of scarabs in my lists, I would say Flight of the Bumblebee would be appropriate.
