Songs that remind you of Mass Effect (that aren't in the soundtrack or by Miracle of Sound ;-)

Post by Rankincountry on Fri Jan 11, 2013 9:59 pm

So I was listening to some music and reading this forum on my train journey home, and a few tracks started to make me think about themes from Mass Effect. "Invaders Must Die" by Prodigy is an obvious general one, and of course "London Calling" by The Clash has been analysed as part of IT speculations, but there's others that really made me think about more specific elements. I thought I'd create this thread for a bit of fun, and here's some to get it started.

Indoctrination:

Paradise Lost - Isolate Lyrics Youtube

Dio - Dream Evil Lyrics Youtube

Shepard's Mental Struggle

Skindred - Stand for Something Lyrics Youtube

Shepard's Dreams

Paradise Lost - Pray Nightfall Lyrics Youtube

End Sequence/Breath Scene

Skindred - Cut Dem Lyrics Youtube

Anyone else got any?

Actually quite a few songs remind me of Mass Effect, but that's probably more due to my obsessiveness than any particular merit of the song.

For example - Spaceman by the Killers.

The Star-maker says it ain't so bad. (The catalyst selling synthesis)
Dream-maker's gonna make you mad. (Harbinger)
Spaceman says everybody look down. (from the decision chamber)
It's all in your mind.

Star One - Starchild
The song is actually about 2001: A Space Odyssey, but it has a fair number of parallels.
Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWJGKTMp1hQ
Lyrics: http://www.darklyrics.com/lyrics/starone/spacemetal.html#10

Symphony X - Reign in Madness
This song makes me think of the Reapers invading, especially the line about the "brainwashed electric living dead."

Ayreon - Evil Devolution
A song about mankind becoming unfeeling machines, perfect for the Reapers.

Iced Earth - Harbinger of Fate
A really good "I am" song for Harbinger (It even has his name!). The album title obviously makes me think of ME as well.
Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HWPy1Y9mwY

Zack Hemsey's See What I've Become always reminds me of ME.

For obvious reasons.
Rotersand - Exterminate Annihilate Destroy

Reminds me of the reapers and IT perfectly.
Novakill - Why Won't You Die?

My control theme song, and how hopeless I feel it'll end up.
DYM - The Invilid

Synthesis, because ugh.
Static-X - This Is Not

I'll leave it there for now. Since ME3 most of the songs I listen to I find myself relating to the trilogy in some form or other.

This song really reminds me of the choice between Control and Destroy (with some refuse thrown in at the beginning).

E-Type - Back in the Loop

Mostly in regards to Mass Effect 2 as the song repeats lines such as "we are back in the loop and it is time to go on" and "we are aiming for all or nothing now!"

But also in regards to a IT due lines such as "Snap out of it now" and "there is no way to stop the yellow danger!" (sour yellow note Wink )

London Calling by The Clash due to being used in the pre-announcement viral marketing and including the line "Quit stalling and draw another breath"
