    Babylon: I like this theme, and don't think it should go until at least the top 10.

    Ottomans: I like the theme, but not as much as the ones remaining.

    England: I will say that the flutes makes this theme very epic. A very catchy tune just like the string instrument in Ethiopia's theme.

    Polynesia: I don't know about this one. It does have the warlike feeling in this theme. But like their peace theme, I don't know if their war theme can compete with the other themes in the list.

    Zulu: The theme must be higher.

    Polynesia: The Ottoman war theme is honestly more convincing than Polynesia's.


    I also want to say that I am starting to wonder if the elimination threads will last long enough to have a winner.

    Byzantium's war theme just kills me. That start is amazing. I love the darkness of this theme. Upbeat and terrifying. Deserves at least top 10.

    On the other hand, while this theme is good, like kingfish said, it just can't compete with the rest.

    Babylon: To help it along.

    Polynesia: Now that I think about it and listened to them again, the Ottoman war theme sounds much more brooding than the Polynesian one.

    Babylon: The beginning is already convincing. Whole theme kept its pace for the most part.

    Polynesia: Now do you see my point TheBoulderite?

    May I suggest increasing the strength of the downvote to help this thread conclude faster? Like, say, from now on, all downvotes will be worth -4? Could help, especially considering we're just finding excuses to downvote good themes at this point.

    Naturally, TheBoulderite would have to be the one to permit this.

    Polynesia's Haka War Theme is one of my favourites, and I won't let it die easily. I love how this music joins two distinct cultures, yet still remains catchy.

    Sweden's War theme is a tad all over the place. Their anthem fits the peace theme so much better.

    Sweden - 14 I like that it's an obvious corruption of the peace theme. That march segment is pretty nifty, too.

    This masterpiece must live!

    Edit: I say we take down Attila next. Not a bad theme, just repetitive and generic sounding. Who's with me?

    Arabia - 27-3=24 Needs to be taken down a notch. The Arabia theme is decent, but should absolutely not be the highest rated war theme.
