The hell is a 'score' ?!? Are you talking about a music track? sheet music? Is 'score' another British thing...jesus...some british terms are just ridiculous
Believe it or not, score has quite a few meanings!
In one instance of the word as a noun, to score something is to engrave a marking on a surface, e.g: Someone has put a score right along my coffee table.
Whereas in this case musically, it can be used an a noun or a verb. To listen to a score, or to score something. I can see how you might be confused though, as fair enough, the word does tend to be used more when physically viewing music. But more than typically is used to specify music that was made originally for something. e.g. Diablo 2 has a great score.
But be aware when walking away from this lesson, that this isn't British slang, it's English.
Cue inspirational score

I think I'll be re-watching my boss fights in slow-mo, to Edif Piaf's Non, je ne regrette rein.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Led Zeppelin! Of course, the Gods of rock themselves, how could I forgot? I'll certainly be sticking Immigrant Song on the moment I hit whichever act has all that snow ;)Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Quote from Inebriator
Ultimately I would suggest listening to whatever you were going to listen to if you weren't going to be playing Diablo. It should transpose nicely.
Aye, but the point of this thread is to discover new music which can suit the needs of Diablo's iconic atmosphere!

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionHaving played WoW enough, and now Starcraft II as well, I'm wondering how long into my re-playing of Diablo III it'll be till I tire of the in-game scores (if ever), and decide to turn off the music, and just have my own tunes playing in the background while I tear apart my demon enemies.
While some might be happy leaving their digital library on shuffle, I am not, because previous experience has shown that in the heat of a Zerg vs Zerg pvp game, Mika/ ABBA/ Nicki Minaj WILL pop up. When what I really need is NIN's The Fragile, with its decaying, decrepit mood that brings forth a swarming, spawning insect army.
That's not to say ABBA isn't great, but ultimately you want music that's going to set the mood for your surroundings, while at the same time, not get repetitive, and perhaps even get you killing along to the tempo.Of course, there's always the odd chance that your music syncs in perfectly with current events for that exact situation (see ~ swarming your enemies' base during a guitar solo, jumping from a high distance during the bridge or entering an event/ boss battle during the drop!)
So here I am, calling on you for your thoughts on playlists! Perhaps for specific zones, or specific Acts of the game?
Here's some tracks of my own I'm preparing to play during Act 1 of the game. The orchestral scores are a particular favourite of mine, but not to everyone's taste. (All links to YouTube provided!)
- Thirteen - Danzig
- The Wretched - Nine Inch Nails (Hoping for a Leah music video to this when the game's out)
- Another Brick in the Wall - KoЯn
- Prayer of the Refugee - Rise Against
- Before I Forget - Slipknot
- Devil on My Shoulder - Billy Talent
- Hysteria - Muse
- Peggy Sussed - Underworld
- Perfect Day - Lou Reed
- Why So Serious? - Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard
- Pompeii - E.S. Posthumus
- Hello Zepp - Charlie Clouser
- Rage - John Murphy
- Just Like You Imagined - Nine Inch Nails
- The Kraken - Hans Zimmer
- Lux Aeterna - Clint Mansell
- Kalki - E.S. Posthumous
- Neodämmerung - Don Davis
- Pinbacker Slashes Capa - John Murphy & Underworld
- Navras - Juno Reactor VS. Don Davis
- Blackbeard - Hans Zimmer
- The End of All Things - Howard Shore
- Wolf Suite, Pt. 1 - Danny Elfman
Or you can just play some Krzysztof Penderecki the whole time and s**t your pants while doing it.
Any tracks you'd recommend to play Diablo III against? For any specific ACT or zone?
(Let's avoid the obvious clichés, e.g.; Highway to Hell, Sympathy for the Devil or Through the Fire and Flames.)
