Ren'Py specific questions should be posted in the Ren'Py Questions and Annoucements forum, not here.
A. there are any like this here
B. it's just a turn off to most people
I myself love metal music, and the game I'm currently working on could probably pull it off. I don't expect say Katawa Shojo to have metal music, but from the VNs I've played, the music is all poppy and techno-y (though techno is pretty cool too). I was just wondering why metal music just seems to be missing.

You can most likely find some free music to use on Jamendo. Here's a search for metal music that you can use in your project: http://www.jamendo.com/en/tag/metal?lic ... month_desc I can't guarantee the quality of the albums, but, one good quality album should do the trick.

I actually plan on using more instrumental metal, which should solve the problem to some extent, anything with lyrics distracts me. However, most metal is a little...I'm not going to say wrong, but there is a huge variety. So far I've used Dio and Dragonforce, h=which are both power metal, there is an entire genre of more melodic metal music, though I've stated this before... Stairway to Heaven for example is considered metal, and it's a very relaxing tune http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKg4g9zMeHIPugfarts wrote:Something like dragonforce, maybe, but for me most metal would probably make it hard to concentrate on reading.
Edit: Also, I love Dragonforce too. Body Breakdown... just yeah.
@Fawn, thanks for the site. I wish I could get some of the songs in my head played, but I don't play guitar, and my knowledge of music theory is limited (I'm taking a class though).
@nd Edit: Holy! I can use some of this stuff commercially! Hell yeah!

Just try not to use metal with vocals, because like you said, it distracts the reader.
And hmm... just wondering, but have you noticed how lots of movies and shows (Hey, Evangelion) use classical music during really chaotic scenes? What if you used chaotic metal during really mundane scenes?
