The Extreme by Nobuo Uematsu

Beginning with a low, intimidating chant of 'Fithos Lusec Wecos Vinosec', an anagram of the phrase 'Sucession of Witches' and 'Love', two major recurring elements to FF8's plot, we segue into a guitar-driven melody that harks back to 'The Nightmare Begins' of FF7, but quickly develops into a haunting, melancholy piece that feels like the calm before a terrible temporal storm. It is here that Sorceress Ultimecia, reduced to a faceless abomination hovering in a dark and formless void, delivers a chilling statement to her adversaries: their existence, as well as that of creation itself, will be rendered null and void; denied the opportunity to continue in any form, even that of the elusive (if ill-defined) Time Compression state she once intended.
And then, right around the 1:37-1:40 mark, the battle theme proper begins. As befits Nobuo's nostalgic compositional style, and the thematic time elements already in play, the older battle themes of the Final Fantasy series can be heard after the tranquil intro ends.
But make no mistake. 'The Extreme', while paying homage to Nobuo's past accomplishments, becomes a tour de time-nullifying force with a presence and personality all its own.

One of my favorite battle themes from Final Fantasy, right up there with Dancing Mad and Clash on the Big Bridge.

Normally I hate frantic jittery rock but Metal Gear Rising's soundtrack was pretty awesome.

Not one that I would sit and listen to, but Skyrim has a great ambient soundtrack. It has a way of keeping me immersed in this absolutely expansive universe. Easily overlooked, but highly effective.

There are a few songs in Skyrim, which are playing while I'm travelling around the world, I'll suddenly start singing LotR tunes because they are THAT similar. But I do like the ST ^^

I couldn't agree more.

I'm really enjoying the soundtrack of the Devil May Cry series. It is a cool mix of orchestrated and rock music.

Spec Ops: The line Also, the way they implemented is was brilliant, as a whole, the music itself was like it's own character.
