I'm always eager to add new RPG "soundtrack" music to my library, and I really like the way the folks at Bailey Records handle the genre. In this track, a driving drum beat, some odd clicking and clashing, and the ambient music all combine to build suspense, even fear. It's creepy, it's energetic, it's everything that it ought to be.

Two-minutes-forty-four-seconds may not seem like a lot of time to set a scene in your dark fantasy or horror role-playing game, but that?s all the time you?ll need when playing Bailey Records? ?Cthulhu Rising? as part of your game?s background music.

Composed by T. W. Cory, this track jolts the listener immediately into a hard-hitting, yet bleak place. The pounding tempo (a driving drumming drills throughout the piece, occasionally accompanied by what sounds like a didgeridoo) doesn?t let up one bit, actually increasing in intensity as the track comes to its end.

Music can add so much to a role-playing game, and a wise GM can use this music for a cut-away scene, a scene in which the player-characters stumble across a sinister ceremony or some strange cult activity, or even as the accompaniment for a game or campaign?s finale.

You can hit ?repeat? when using this track; it isn?t just a mindless, repetitive loop. One-minute-thirty-two seconds in, there is a slight pause in the pounding drums, which serves as a sort of natural break point, smartly keeping this track from becoming too monotonous if left on ?repeat? for too long.

(That said, I would have liked to have heard a slightly longer version of this track.)

The title of this track ? ?Cthulhu Rising? ? is indicative of what game system Bailey Records obviously has in mind for this track, but don?t let this fool you. This is a piece of music that can find its home in an edgier darker modern setting, a dark fantasy setting, a Conan-esque setting, and so on. I would find this music quite appropriate for a Dungeons & Dragons campaign I?m preparing now!

This is good music, and immediately brings to mind several possibilities for use in a role-playing game.


LIKED: This is a smart and dark piece of gaming music that lends itself for use in a variety of different game settings. It's well-produced and is quite inspriring.

DISLIKED: I would wish for a longer track if I had to improve upon this product.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied
