Necropolis, also known as Melchiah's theme, is a musical track which first appeared in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, composed by Kurt Harland. It reappears in Legacy of Kain: Defiance.

Occurences[edit | edit source]

Necropolis primarily serves as the theme music for the eponymous region in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, the Melchahim Clan Territory, and as the track played when Raziel battles Melchiah. In the PC port of the game, it also replaces Ozar Midrashim in some instances as the boss battle theme, notably during the confrontation with Kain at the Sanctuary of the Clans. In Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Necropolis plays throughout the Cemetery.

Necropolis is included in the Bonus Materials section in Soul Reaver 2, but not on the promotional soundtrack.
