Analysis[edit | edit source]

  • Like most music tracks unlocked in the Kharidian Desert, City of the Dead draws influence from real-world Middle Eastern music. It is a slow, somewhat somber track, with some faster periods, reflecting Sophanem's struggling state following the arrival of Amascut's plagues.
