Berserk is one of those things in my mind I can literally apply to any music.
I agree!

This makes me think of Puck: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRV534hBS_0

I know its maybe too mainstream but just think the first segment were Casca's thoughts pre-eclipse and from the chorus were Guts post eclipse.

I knew this could fit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJkrzr-8CEc

For me it is ''Metallica - The Unforgiven'', the perfect music for Guts!  :beast:

many themes in this album make me think of Berserk.  This song Lex Talionis starts the album

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmFULBoFZao
"The world is full of gods and beasts
Some to serve and some to feast
Avert your eyes from the sky
The lies of God and the God of lies
And even forests once lush and green
Have the stench of murder and children's screams
But bird of prey in your eyes is where our heavens lie
But bird of prey in your eyes is where our future lies"

From the song Lex Talionis from the album Lex Talionis by Tony Wakeford of Sol Invictus.

I always think of this song when I reread the early Black Swordsman episodes.

While reading once, Whale Fall's music and berserk felt like one thing. The emotional up and downs and epic momentos fitted perfectly the scenes, it was quite strange but pleasing, The Madrean album if I'm not mistake (both thir albuns are great)

 Other than this, mostly instrumental music seems fitting for me, but Agalloch music does sometimes blend very well, especially Not Unlike The Waves when Guts is really angry

Always a very intriguing topic

here some of mine:

Vol 11: I love this celtic song (most known for the movie 'Last of Mohicans'). I admit that sometimes I re-read this volume listening to this   :ganishka:  so Epic

Vol 14: When Guts starts his war. In the first part I have in mind his walking towards the dark... from 1:09 I imagine the different battles from the Black Swordman and Conviction arcs:

Vol 37: I imagine this Enya's song when the mermaids save Guts.
and a special one..
What song do you like to imagine that Irvine is playing in the woods? (with Sonia, vol 29)
Personally I think to a sweet melody but, as Sonia stated, a little bit sad. here's my choice:

Reminds me of the bond Guts and Griffith shared and all the battles they faced. I love the part that follows the 3:17 mark.

Whenever I listen to Hero by Machinae Supremacy I always think about Guts.

I've always associated this with Gaiseric's ancient capital since the first time i heard it. It just fits too well the Greek-Roman theme of the city. Or maybe i'm just associating Anor Londo with the ancient capital.

I'm not sure what the rules are on necroposting, reviving a dead thread or whatever here, so I'm gonna post here and hope its not wrong. Honestly I'm starting to associate the Beatles with Berserk and for a very chance reason. I just happened to have music on my phone when I was reading Berserk for the frist time and The White Album came on, so I continue that, whenever i decide to read a few episodes/chapter I put on the Beatles. It's a very strange association.

New fan, and first time poster, here!

Last month I read the manga over the course of a week (planning to do a second, more in depth, read soon). I didn't listen to only one album/playlist/track while reading through it, but I did listen to one in particular over all others: Overkill's The Years of Decay from 1989.

I think they fit quite well together. The cover art looks like the sort of demonic altar I'd expect to see in the manga. Musically, they nail the atmosphere of Berserk's world; dark, pessimistic, and violent. I think lyrically, they manage to inadvertently express a lot of the worst thoughts and feelings that Guts ends up experiencing. In my mind, the manga and the album evoke images/sounds of the other.

I've been a metal fan far longer than I've been a Berserk fan, though, so it's possible I'm just unconsciously insisting on the undue importance of my musical preferences. :troll:

You could think that Coldplay was actually inspired by Berserk for their song 'Fix You'. The lyrics are eerie in how much they describe Berserk in detail, about Guts' quest to fix Casca, how he lost something irreplaceable etc.

Here's a very nice MMV with the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJkrzr-8CEc
