Battle music playlist suggestions

I encountered a new (to me) piece of music the other day, called "Dance of Triump" by a Siberian artist, "Dance of Triump" Saydyy Kuo Fedorova

I was instantly struck by how martial this music is, and started me thinking about putting together a playlist of battle music.

Not patriotic tunes, not marching music, but music for the charge, music to be played as the regiment deploys into line; as the assault shuttle makes a 6G descent to an opposed planetary landing. Music for the archers at Agincourt. The Marines riding in their landing craft headed to Tarawa.

Of course, I have the "March of Cambreadth" in my list, but I am looking for suggestions for other battle music.

Thanks!

Three obvious ones spring to mind:

Anvil of Crom
Ride of the Valkyries
and the classic O Fortuna, best known these days from Excalibur.

Doc.

Mickey Mouse March from Full Metal Jacket.

That movie put a whole 'nother spin on it.

Lots of stuff by Vangelis, start with this.



And try stuff by Joseph LoDuca, who wrote the music for Xena.
