Dungeon Rock - Creating a Dungeons and Dragons Soundtrack

Here's a soundtrack for playing D&D by. It's a compilation of mostly Hard Rock/Heavy Metal tracks from the 70's and 80's. The soundtrack has a certain flow to it, with the idea being that a party is venturing into the depths where they encounter a variety of creatures and scenarios.

Here's the playlist:
