Strange Aeons: Best Soundtracks

ia! Aw-yea! Cthulhu is fhtuckin' rockin'!!!

As I've been working on Strange Aeons models, reading Lovecraft and generally making To Do lists for Strange Aeons terrain, I have also found some pretty damned good soundtracks for inspiration. Where Akira, Glory, Halo and Band of Brothers were my go-to for playing my Imperial Guard, I caught myself casting nets upon Spotify for eldritch soundtracks and what clamored aboard is well suited to the quasi-sane sound-scape of horrific madness.

Here's what I have so far, in no particular order. Feel free to suggest and I'll update the list. The list is Spotify-friendly...
  1. Sherlock Holmes, Hans Zimmer
