On this page you can find what I like to call the playlists of Rider of the Black Horse. Many of the scenes in the book were inspired by music and I tend to listen to music when I'm working on the books. So it's only natural to compile a specific playlist of songs for each volume of the series. It's similar to a soundtrack in some sense. If you're a fan of metal, especially power metal, chances are you know many of the songs below. If you haven't read the book yet, then I would advise against reading the playlists below since some songs can act as minor spoilers for the story. For the time being, only the playlist of Emptiness is available, but I will update the page with the rest of them as well in time.
