I know some Garbage songs that are perfect for certain situations:

"I'm Only Happy When It Rains" when your Sisters are raining boltshells and burning promethium on the enemy, "Push It" when they're pushing towards an Objective, "I Think I'm Paranoid" when they serve alongside the Inquisition and/or fight the forces of Chaos, and "Stupid Girl" when punishing wayward Sisters for losing their way (the lyric "Can't believe you'd fake it," referring to the wayward Sisters' faith in Chaos' false gods, of course).

Thoughts?

Honestly, you need ‘Deadly Sinners’ by 3 Inches of Blood in your life as a Sisters Player.

As the song is in the soundtracks of 'Tony Hawk's Underground 2' and 'Brutal Legend', did you kitbash Sisters on (what were once Space Marine) bikes and/or wielding electric guitars with integral combi-flamers, to go with the song?

I'm finding a lot of the posts rather tenuous in relation to Sisters, especially the last post (which I've removed). Please post music that relates to directly to the feel of Sisters, or I'll be prompted to close the topic.

In the darkness between the stars, the weak and the faithless find no deliverance. We are raised to believe that the God-Emperor watches over us all. And so we are charged to cleanse the mutant, the heretic and the alien. We must not falter. We are His sword. We are His wrath. Even in the face of death, we shall not submit. Suffering is our prayer. Faith is our armour. In Battle He offers us redemption. And for those who proves their worth, the Emperor sends sends forth His Angels!

I just had a morbid idea to rewrite the lyrics to "Someday My Prince Will Come", from Disney's Snow White, to better reflect an Adepta Sororitas member's true desire:

Someday my death will come,

Someday I'll prove my love,

And how thrilling that moment will be,

When honorable death finds me.

Standing at the Emp'ror's side,

Golden Throne shining bright,

Through Terra is far away,

I will prove my faith someday.

For a Sisters playlist? I'd recommend looking into E Nomine/Schlafes Bruder. They have quite a few songs that fit the Sisters, as a lot of their songs are using lyrics that are lifted from the bible, such as Ave Maria and Vater Unser, Psalms 23 and those that aren't using biblical passages for lyrics still have religious overtones like Heilig

Loving this topic! So I'm an old-school anime fan (I mean...my handle is Crusher Joe...) and musically I'm all over the place.

 

Now this is pure 80s rock bliss, but I find myself humming Tommy Shaw's Girls With Guns while painting Sisters or making lists with them. This remaster of the original AMV of that song to the Dirty Pair is pure nostalgia for me.

 

Also, the chorus:

 

Stand tall, don't think small
Don't get your back against the wall
Shoot straight, I can't wait
Aim for the heart and fire away

 

Come to think about it, Kei's quote from one of the Dirty Pair novels also works for Sisters: "Explosions, infernos, a few thousand casualties here and there... and, incidentally, a solution to every case."

 

Big Bad WolfComanche and Iron Army -- all by In This Moment -- set the right tone. "Even in these chains you can't break me" woohoo! Also, I swore undying loyalty to Maria Brink many years ago...

 

Two Steps from Hell's Invincible album makes good Sisters theme music (well, pretty much any Two Steps from Hell does, really).

 

Let me think about it -- I'm happy to know I'm in the good company of fellow metalheads here (not that it's a surprise).

Does anyone think Bebe Rexha's "I'm Gonna Show You Crazy" (warning: language) is appropriate- maybe after some lyrics are rewritten, e.g., replace "crazy" with "devout" or "faithful"? It really suits Lady Inquisitor Tanya von Degurechaff, as demonstrated in this AMV:

Mell's "Red Faction", used in the Black Lagoon anime, is a good war song- if you can tolerate the innuendo and the obscenities. "I have a big gun, I took it from My Lord!" is strangely appropriate as an opening line, don't you think?

MYTH & ROID's "Voracity", from Overlord Season 3, is great- once you understand the singers use "eating" as an analogy for wars of conquest. (The light novels-turned-anime's protagonist is a lich- undying, like the God-Emperor- he no longer has a digestive system, a need to eat, or the ability to feel physical hunger.)

Dua Lipa's "Swan Song", from the Alita: Battle Angel soundtrack, is a good choice, in my opinion. The lyrics are appropriate for a Sister of Battle.

What is the point
Of my lips if they don't make noise? Uh!
What is the point of doing nothing at all?
Watching it fall.

We will not stay quiet. We will not do nothing.

We will give voice to our faith. We will pray to the God-Emperor. We will fight on.

And we will PUNISH all enemies of the Imperium He built, for having the audacity to defy His will.

The flicker burning,
You know the time is runnin', runnin' out.
Only I see,
All the diamonds, diamonds breaking down.
I won't stay quiet, I won't stay quiet,
'Cause staying silent's the same as dying.
I won't stay quiet, the flicker's burning low.

This is not a, this is not a
Swan, swan song.
This is not a, this is not a
Swan, swan song.
We just gotta, we just gotta hold on tonight.
This is not a, this is not a swan song, swan song.
Swan dive.
Yeah, it's a new life

A new life at the God-Emperor's side.

No lyrics at all but the atmosphere in the OST of the Mechanicus game is excellent. Proper organs recorded for it combined with some tasty electronica.

Magia was already mentioned in the OP but I feel Credens Justitiam might be the most Sororitas anime song in existence. Even if it's in a fictional language (inspired by Latin, mind) it really does call to mind the "avenging angels" image that accompanies the Battle Sisters.

 

Likewise, Mami's theme from the first movie, Mirai, sounds extremely Sisters-of-Battle-y, and even the Japanese lyrics are quite fitting. The song is about Mami no longer having fear because she isn't alone anymore, which if you replace Mami with a Battle Sister and Madoka and Sayaka with her fellow Sisters and belief in the Emperor, is poignant, uplifting and incredibly 40K.

 

And now I need to make a small Sisters army with colours and Canoness inspired by Mami Tomoe. biggrin.png

No, but it's attached to an AdMech Skitarii Alpha body.

Poor Sister Superior Mami suffered grievous injuries when the Daemon Prince Charlotte destroyed her Leman Russ Vanquisher Tiro Finale. She hasn't allowed the tragic loss of her crew, or the fact augmetics have replaced 80% of her body, stop her from continuing to serve the God-Emperor's will.

And she will not accept the honor of martyrdom until she has punished the Daemon Prince for having the audacity to defile the God-Emperor's realm with its very existence.

The rhythm and the lyrics are most inspiring. The images in the video, though, make me think it's more appropriate for a Space Wolves army. Have you posted in the Your Anthems for your Company, your wolves thread?
