Yep Back in the 80's, Conan the Barbarian and Destroyer records in the background (Along with Other Moody, Dark music, that I could find kicking around).

Re: Music in the Background

We always have something playing.  Could be Celtic/folk for sylvan settings, heavy metal or classic rock for darker themes.  I've also used the Lord of the Rings & Hobbit soundtracks as background music.  And yes, the Conan soundtrack is superb as well.

Re: Music in the Background

Great list Matteus. Check out The Descent by David Julyan - great twist away from traditional instrumentation and drawn out dread.
