Kaom’s Dream from Path of Exile

My boyfriend and I have been playing Path of Exile together since the beginning of 2017; being a long distance couple has led to a search for things to play together online when we skype, as a way to interact together when we’re so physically apart. We’ve loved playing the online multiplayer fantasy game Path of Exile together, and I discovered it’s incredibly interesting soundtrack.

They’re often very long tracks and very atmospheric, but it you’re a writer like me, that’s great news. I love songs that aren’t too short, that you can get lost in. This is one of my favorite tracks so far. It’s eery, heavy, and dark, yet uses enough percussion to keep the beat steady and engaging. I love how tingling this track sounds; you can taste the smog in the air and feel a growing apprehension build. Then it softens out towards the end, mellowing and quiet, yet still eery and sad. It delicious.

The Regulator by Clutch

Ahhhhhhhh heck yes a nice little throwback for me when I first watched The Walking Dead and this was used in an early season. I’ve loved it ever since. Just heck yes. Those guitar twangs. The plodding rhythm. The deep dark vocals. And the energy just grows and grows as the song goes on. It’s awesome. This would be on my playlist if I had to face a zombie apocalypse.

Beautiful Memories by Adrian von Ziegler

There’s a reason Adrian is one of my most favorite music composers and that I love almost every single song he’s composed: it’s because of the pure EMOTION and HEART that he puts into each piece. This song he wrote for his then long-distance girlfriend, now sweet wife, Carina. AND YOU CAN HEAR HIS LOVE AND LONGING FOR HER IN THIS PIECE. YOU JUST CAN. It’s so bittersweet. The yearning is incredible. I resonate with the emotion strongly being in a long-distance relationship myself. I can hear the pain and love because I know it myself, and it’s amazing to find something like that in a single instrument deliver song. ❤ Just wow.
