Songs, Albums, and Media For Characters! (Beware, potential Spoilers!)

Recommended Posts

I had a thought the other day and wanted to share with everyone: What songs, albums, or media could poetry characters, scenes, or other aspects of Wheel of Time?

I'll go first!


Damane: Freak on a Leash - Korn



Also for Damane: Pet - A Perfect Circle



Semirhage: Reptile - Nine Inch Nails



Lews Therin: Diary of a Mad Man



I'm sure I'll think of a few more, but I'd love to hear what everyone else is thinking!

I was thinking about the use of music in any upcoming screen version of the series.


When the Aiel lift their veils I think some old school techno seems appropriate...maybe The Prodigy?

What about for the Aiel I love You....I'll Kill You by Enigma. Zen Rand at Dragonmount must be Dumond's God Music Cosmic Gate Remix or Hemispheres by John OO Fleming and Solarstone.

Has anyone heard of Blind Guardian? They are a power metal band, and have two songs about the Wheel of Time. One appropriately called "Wheel of time" and one called "Ride Into Obsession." I know that is not exactly what this thread is about, but they are pretty good songs.

Here's another:


Graendal: You Give Love a Bad Name




I know I've been using a lot of the 80s Greatest Hits.  But sometimes, when it applies...


This is a more personal thought, but I always imagined what it must be like to embrace Saidar and if I were a man, how to seize Saidin.  These two songs always come to mind when I imagine it:


Embracing Saidar/Seizing Saidin: Parabol/Parabola by Tool off their Lateralus Album.  I felt the dual songs (While not equal in time) show an excellent audio example of what I would imagine the experience to be similar to.



Also, for Seizing Saidin: Through Fire And Flames - Dragonforce

So I actually posted in a similar BT thread, but a couple by a band called Beast in Black make me think WoT.


They have one called Eternal Fire that lyrically sounds a lot like the One Power being referenced (and also mentioned rebirth and triumph, makes me think of Rand).


They also have one called Blood of a Lion about a King reclaiming their crown, which makes me think of the whole Elayne arc.


There is also a band called Neverland with a song called Voice Inside I think about Rand/LT.
