Soundtrack of the Damned

Soundtrack of the Damned

Music has always been one of the backbones of Vampire. The moody atmospherics of the songs blend so well with tales of the damned, that it's unsurprising that it has it's own official soundtrack--Music from the Succubus Club.  In fact, any given fan probably has at least a dozen albums, soundtracks, mix CD's, and playlists that are their "go to" music for a game, be it table top or LARP.

But, I always found the list put together by Rob Hatch for the Storytellers Handbook to be particularly fascinating. Personally, it introduced me to some amazing bands I would never have heard of otherwise. Secondly, it's an interesting glimpse into what the original team had in mind for the mood and themes of the game. So, to preserve this, I've gone ahead and created a Spotify Playlist with most of the music.  If you don't have an account, it's free, and I recommend you checking it out. There's some great music on there, though it is missing a few of the songs from Rob's list. Specifically--

Inside the Termite Mound (Killing Joke)
Vacancy (Scratch Acid)
Police Truck (Dead Kennedys)

In any case here's the playlist. Hope you enjoy!
