    Among my favorits:

    Era, Enigma, Vangelis, Dagda, Mark Knopfler.

    Right now it's El Greco by Vangelis, a masterpeice to get my inspiration flowing.
    Check out Rhapsody...Its heavy metal...but it will take you to fantasy lands...

    As a matter of fact...they do a song with Christopher Lee...he's amazing...here's links.

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=8KPZJg5g7M8 - The Magic of the Wizards Dream (slower peaceful song with Mr. Lee on Tenor)

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=YEMeBTmiX4g - Unholy Warcry (heavier song but rich with story and power...Mr Lee Narrates.)

    Rhapsody has been telling the same epic tale since their beginning...its quite epic. They even have an older album with a nerdy "Lispy speaking DM guy" narrating...its funny...EVERYONE should check them out.

    That's Funny

    To me METAL ALWAYS takes me to fantasy lands, with songs like the following:

    Savatage's The Sirens Dealing with the Greek Myth of the Sirens
    Judas Priests: Night Crawler About a creature of horror tormenting a town

    And then my personal favorite: The Entire album for King Diamond's Abigail which is a concept album, or where the entire album is one story and each song is a separate chapter. Abigail is gothic Horror set in the 1700's about a man who inhierit's his grandfather's mansion but his young bride is possessed by the spirit of his grandmother's unborn bastard child 'Abigail'

    The lyrics can be found here: http://www.darklyrics.com/lyrics/kin...abigail.html#1

    Though I will admit, King Diamond is not to everyone's taste, even amongst us metalheads

    But Metal is one of the few musical types which draws immensely on the myths and legends of Fanatsy and History. Weird really.

    I quick like film scores/soundtracks for inspiring the creative juices when I'm working on my AD&D/fantasy games. I would recommend the following...

    Film Soundtracks:
    • Conan The Barbarian Soundtrack
    • Kundun Soundtrack by Philip Glass (Tibetan chants and drums - it has an ethereal quality to it)
    • King Kong Soundtrack (new version)


    Classical Music:
    • Holst's The Planets (especially good for SF games)
    • Four Seasons by Vivaldi


    Ambient/Techno (especially good for SF inspired games):
    • The Orb (anything but especially Orbvs Terrarvm)
    • Eat Static


    Medieval Stuff:
    • Mediaeval Baebes (especially good to watch and listen )


    That's off the top of my head.
    Cheers,
    Tim

    Lucky, Having the Kundun Soundtrack.

    More great things for sci fi, Halo Soundtracks particularly the Third one. AMAZING stuff by Martin O'Donnell, Chopin (Did a great piece called "Raindrops" Which was used in the Halo 3 Believe Ad Campaign), The Mass Effect Soundtrack, has the same great feel as some of the late 70's and 80's Epic Sci Fi's.

    Hey Medievel Baebes, they were at The Renn Faire Last year, filled the entire area up.

    Right now I'm listening to Elend - The Luciferian Revolution. But I generally listen to a very wide range of music.

    Letzte Instanz
    Project 86
    Loreena Mckennitt
    Midnight Syndicate
    Ravi Shankar
    The Beatles
    Streetlight Manifesto
    Demon Hunter
    Crüxshadows
    Rammstein
    Lacrimosa
    BlutEngel
    Corvus Corax
    Saviour Machine
    She Wants Revenge

    Really all over the place there. I tend toward the more instrumental music when I'm doing world design.

    Birds! There are birds outside my window! We've had a bunch of little yellow warblers move into the neighborhood (haven't discovered what they are yet!), and they looooove to sing!

    I am, otherwise, with Anna:

    Metal isn't my thing at all. When I'm mapping I want to listen to music which sends my mind mind to fantasylands. Film soundtracks, Classical, ambient music, gregorian...
    Music from The Gladiator, Brotherhood of the Wolf, LOTR, anything by Vangelis, as well as:

    Enya
    David Arkenstone
    Mannheim Steamroller
    Lisa Gerrard
    Loreena McKennitt
    Clannad
    Balligomingo
    Conjure One
    The Paul Schwartz Project
    Delerium
    The Alan Parson's Project
    Bond (the 4-girl group, not 007!)
    The Planets


    And I, too, like the instrumental stuff when I'm trying to do art or write.
