|Death Of The Earth|
I've been toying around with the concept of a soundtrack for the end of the world for a little while, here's the best that I was able to come up with. Any recs/thoughts on the topic would be cool.
Missa da Requiem
Dies Irae in particular. Absolutely overwhelming piece, the first half (especially in the performances that make good use of the timpani) feels like being engulfed by all of hell.
|2||Paysage d'Hiver |
The Norse concept of Fimbulvinter, or of the Earth freezing and becoming an icy wasteland as humanity deteriorates, has always fascinated me (as did, really, all Norse mythology). Album brings the grim and the hate, while the violin brings teh melancholy.

Vers La Flamme
This piece was written by the eccentric composer about a personal theory he had that the Earth would implode due to accumulation of heat. The music starts of with soft, foreboding chords, but soon accelerates into a dissonant inferno.
|4|| ||Samuel Barber|
Adagio For Strings
By far the least violent piece on the list; rather than fury or anger, the Adagio evokes regret.
Consumes the listener in a sea of dissonance.
|I realize that this is probably the most pretentious thing I've written here thus far, but the idea interested me too much for me to not do this.|
|5 albums? I always pictured the Earth's destruction happening quicker.|
|yeah deathspell omega is only related to the death of the earth for being shitty pseudo-black metal|
|Ummm..... Godspeed... for instance ?|
|yeah godspeed f#a# infinity|
|F#A# is the soundtrack to the end of the world. |
|Dark ambient would be a good idea|
|But let's not hate on the list because of that. It's still a very good list. |
|sorry kiddo's F#A# is a great album...but|
Les Rallizes Dénudés- '77 live is the soundtrack to the end of the world
|as in they have the same concept just not done as well.|
