As a continuation of this series, let's look at Chapters 03 and 04.
Comments on Chapter 03:
Another chapter where the playlist tries to cover both establishing a mood for the character (Flynn) and a location (Palicosta). Many of the tracks are either progressive rock/metal (Thought Industry, Cynic, Gorija) or ambient dub/industrial. My one regret is that I had not yet discovered Fever Ray's debut album, which would have been perfect for Palicosta. Those who have seen History Channel's Vikings will understand as "If I Had a Heart" is used in the show's opening credits.

Comments on Chapter 04:
Chapter 04 is a mixture of jazz-influenced tracks and darker, grittier techno/industrial that best frames the mood of the metropolis of Trone Stenan. I found the jazz/blues-styled rock of Morphine was a perfect fit for Zane Grymore.
