Hey folks!

I've been preparing an epic D&D campaign for my friends and me. It's going to be based around a world where the elements have gone out of control, and the heroes must fight the physical manifestation of each element to calm and temper them, and stop the world from destroying itself. Each one is going to be an epic boss battle that will really push us to the limit. I'm looking for music that is going to match just how epic these battles are going to be! Not only that, but I also want the music to really match the tone and the atmosphere of the elements. The elements will be Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Light and Darkness.

To give you an idea what I mean by matching the tone and atmosphere, here's a few tunes I already have lined up:

"Styx - Converge, Rivers of Hell" by Midnight Odyssey for Water.
"Caradhras" by Summoning for Earth.
"Antithesis of Light" by Evoken for Darkness.

The music can come from any genre! You can get creative. And there's no limit to how long each playlist, so suggest as much as or as little you can. It's all appreciated!

I really don't know if this is what you're looking for (you'll probably have to look through them all :( ), but hope this helps:

Fire
1349 - From the Deeps (black)
Cult of Fire - काली मां (black with folk/epic influences)
Kampfar - Tornekratt (black)
Ragnarok - Blackdoor Miracle (black)
Thy Antichrist - Where is Your God? (black)


Water
Bloody Tyrant - Ode to the Falling Rain (black with folk influences)
Sonata Arctica - White Pearl Black Oceans (melodic power/progressive)
Storm - Noregsgard (viking)
Wilderun - Storm Along (symphonic folk)


Wind
Galneryus - The Promised Flag (neoclassical power)
Gyze - Desire (melodeath)
Twilight Force - Powerwind (symphonic power)
Wintersun - Land of Snow and Sorrow (symphonic)


Earth
Ensiferum - Lai Lai Hei (folk)
Forest - Лютой Стуже (black)
Forest - Тьма (acoustic/folk)
Kalmah - Seventh Swamphony (melodeath)
Korpiklaani - Kirki (folk)


Light
Balflare - Downpour (melodic power)
Ghost - He Is (ballad)
maybe a Sonata Arctica song, actually


Duckness
Batushka - Yekteniya 7 (epic black/epic doom)
Blood Stain Child - Embrace Me (melodeath with electronic influences)
Dissection - Where Dead Angels Lie (black)
Emperor - Into the Infinity of Thoughts (symphonic black)
Windir - Destroy (black)
Wintersun - Sadness and Hate (technically melodeath, but very toned down)

Sorry if I screwed up an URL, I didn't double-check before uploading.

I only had time for metal. Maybe if I could come back I could do another genre.

Well they never had any talent or inspiration at any point in their entire career, but your statement is still true.

For attributes for the element of light, I like to think of it the same way Magic: The Gathering does with the color white. That is, being tied in with the ideas of order, morality, and structure. However, if viewed as an out of control force (as it seems it will be in this campaign), those ideas could evolve into oppression and fascism. So I thought some metal that has this sort of "wrath of god" feeling to it seems really appropriate.

Deathspell Omega's Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum was the first thing to come to mind when I thought of it that way. Very wrathful sounding like an army of angels sweeping the world clean.

Hey, I don't know if you're still looking out for music, but I just looked over this and realized that "light" should also have Galneryus - Angel of Salvation and a Theocracy song, like I Am, Hide in the Fairytale or The Gift of Music.
