Do you guys do it or do you prefer the clarity of in-game combat sounds?
If you listen to some jams, what kind of stuff do you prefer/think go along with the game?
I suppose this is the right place for this kind of thread.. ^^

EDIT: I myself rather enjoy listening to The Unguided. The band actually drew inspiration from Soul Reaver in their album art! Check it out: http://i.imgur.com/HOpB68d.jpg

Also, in my opinion their other album cover also has an uncanny feel similar to the LoK universe: http://pittsburghmusicmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/frzq.jpg

The band itself is found easily on Youtube. Melodic death metal, fits nicely with the brutality of the game!

EDIT2: On second thought, maybe this thread would be better off in the General section, seeing as it is kind-of about the game too. Can I get a mod-opinion on this? :D

I always listen to music while I play - I find Mastodon's Leviathan record to be really appropriate for it.

I personally mute the music and put Sarafan battle or other LOK music :D

That said I'm guilty of it. I never drown out Nosgoth's audio when I play. More like low-volume 'background' music while I fight, when I choose to listen to stuff. Generally, it's silly **** to keep me in a good mood while I play. Got this nasty habit of getting tunnel vision once tension sets in.

Otherwise: I'm good on music.

im usually listening to melo-death (and other kinds) of metal while butchering humans / impaling vamps :P
mostly i let the music dominate the entire game, affecting the style i play directly. just awesome when ye get some kind of euphoric burst after a few good kills, ha! :D

I don't, the game's audio gives a lot of hints and cues that I need to pay attention to. Plus I wouldn't want to drown out the awesome quotes and one-liners from the characters.

I tend to listen to rock music on Pandora with low volume so I can still hear the reaver growls, and so on ^^
