View Full Version : War Music Favorites (Games, Movies)

Just looking from further music in the vein of themes from Medal of Honor, Brothers in Arms, Call of Duty, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, etc. Great music from all four of those. I haven't listened to all the music from the MoH or Brothers in Arms games, so feel free to list any tracks from those you enjoy. Maybe I can catch something I missed. =D
What are your favorites, what are some albums or themes to check out with this kind of music in mind. Powerful anthems, emotional tracks, whatever.
Always been a fan. Just got done watching The Pacific, so i am in the mood.

I don't listen to a lot of that kind of music, but I like the Gears of War 2 soundtrack. It's pretty epic.
This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzE4cKps1IE) caught my attention.

Hmm, probably not really what you're looking for, but I really like the music for 'Ace Combat'. It's aerial combat / warfare, so I think it classifies as 'war music'.
It's definitely epic music, a lot of orchestral fused with synth - especially the tracks by Keiki Kobayashi are noteworthy.

A little tricky to come by but I would consider some KOEI CDs like Pacific Theater of Operations (http://vgmdb.net/album/4407) or Pacific Theater of Operations III (http://vgmdb.net/album/4406) to have some military music.
KOEI has done many strategy games with historical context.
