Pick a song you think would fit well over the end credits (or whenever you think it could be played)


Warning Label by BIXBY
http://bixby.bandcamp.com/track/warning-label
"She'll be the one"
"Don't ever tell me you can get higher, 'cause then I'd have to compete"
"Don't ever tell me that you might love me, cause I'll turn my back, you see."
"...Thinking you were better, but you're not better yet"
- This song really fits to Lara as well as having a "survivor" feel to it.

Phobia by BIXBY
http://bixby.bandcamp.com/track/phobia
"Phobia... Panic"
"dark halls and quiet walls"
"candle flames killed the wick"
*something about in the trees, the lyrics escape me :hmm:*
- To me this fits the feel of a mysterious island as well as the dark and horror like feel to this game.

Haunted by Evanescence
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mauH_uQZRY
"Long lost words whisper slowly to me"
"Hunting you..."
".. I can smell you- Alive"
"I know you're still there"
-This has an ancient dark feel to it. Feels like it matches what we know about the location so far.

Break Your Knees by Flyleaf
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vey-m_vLjPI
"Breaks your knees and leaves you so the sun can burn you up and wear you out"
"The sun will set on this"
"Your wounds are gonna heal"
"Just keep your eyes ahead"
"Don't look at the past again"
"The first and last have made everything new, and you are too"
"Let your story be told"
- This is probably my favorite choice because it feels like an ending. The lines about being new describe how Lara evolves in this story.

This is definately worthy of being played over the credits for something as Tomb Raider. (Also fans will recognize it nearly instantly which will result in intense heart attacks.)

Evanescence YES :D I've been a fan since a very long time for them and I think their music fits with the new lara theme

I'll say Evanescence cause I do enjoy there songs but can I just make a quick suggestion? Sorry and all but can't resist.

With Tomb Raider now gaining the feel of a survival Horror game, I used to enjoy the Silent Hill games (the only games that I think can still manage to scare me), but the sound tracks to the silent hill games are brilliant. Your in the horrible place yet the music adds even more creepiness to it whilst being somewhat relaxing at the same time.

But yes, from your selection I'll go with Evanescence.:D

None of the above.

Irfan - Otkrovenie

Would be my choice. It's haunting, beautiful, lacking lyrics. Yeah, it's Middle Eastern, but it shouldn't matter. ( I've been obsessed with Middle Eastern music lately, sue me.)

I say none. Something original, but not generic epic LOTR music a la Underworld. Out of those Evanescence though

Anything with subtle japanese instruments, like a sanshin.Not forgetting the well known soft chimes that Tomb raider sound tracks always include :3

This one! It's just perfect to conclude a dark, violent horror game:

It'd be cool if they got Amy Lee to write and/or perform a song for it.

Or any artist really. "Still Alive" from Mirror's Edge was wonderful

I could see Nick Cave having an awesome song written about Lara Croft. Something that reflects the theme of survival in the game as well as Lara's epic badassery.

Not sure which song though
