Soundtrack to Rogue Blood

Felt a stirring need to post the soundtrack that I listed to—dozens of times over, hundreds of hours worth—when I was writing my first full-sized novel (go nominate it now!), Rogue Blood. I can't help but think of scenes from the novel when I hear these tracks. Each one is significant of a feeling that dresses certain scenes from the book in the perfect tone. This list comes highly recommended as a companion piece of listening when reading the story.
