Authors description: HOI4 Music Project Comintern

All my Hearts of Iron IV music mods:

This is the Comintern music mod which has songs for the Soviet Union, Mongolia, and adds music to anyone joining the Comintern. Samples of the music are above.

There are 428 songs in this mod, broken down into 354 Soviet Union, 14 Mongolian, and 60 Comintern songs. All of them have their peace and war music. The mod is tailored to play music depending on your war score. If you are losing the war, sadder, more depressing songs will play, whereas winning will have in general more uplifting music. The Comintern songs is faction music in which anyone who joins with the Soviet Union will then get to hear that music.

It greatly surprised me to find that there was civilian dance music made in the pre-war times before the Germans invaded the Soviet Union. These were done by Ferdinand Krish, Leonid Utyosov, Vadim Kozin, Peter Leshchenko, and several others. Nadezhda Obukhova, plays before and just after the war 46-47. Also, do not worry, for the great classical music composer of the Soviet Union, Dmitri Shostakovich, has his four Leningrad compositions here as well.

These songs are meant to immerse the player into the feel, theme, and setting with the music that was played at the time. Military music both played by military bands and music from movies, as well as video games have a strong presence here too. Civilian music dominates during peace time, and then when at war, historical military music, or music created for since the war to fit that nation and theme then dominate.

This is also the end version of this mod. It is as far as I am concerned 100% completed and works great and sounds great with perfect quality music for all the songs within. However, keep in mind that some were taken off of old records, so it may sound like you are listening to an old record. If it was really bad quality, I chose not to use it. Only the best for my mods!

No other music mods for HOI will have undergone the research and effort that was put into the HOI4 Music Project. Famous singers of the time are in for their respective nations, as well as historical music that fits the time period; if a pop song was from the 50s, 60s, or later, you won’t find it here. However, music made since the war, for the period of the 30s to 1948 has been placed in this mod. Putting together this many historical songs and or songs made for the time period wasn’t easy. Sometimes hours of effort just selecting the right music from the correct artists went into these mods.

The Hoi4 Music Project will have over 3000 songs with originals from 1913 up to the end of the game time of 1948. The entire collection of music has been gathered together for nearly all of the combatants in World War II.

All music is set to play for their proper dates, so if a song historically came out in 1941, it will not play until then for the nation/language it was created in. Same languages share civilian music amongst each other, while military music is specific for that nation. The exception to this would be US music only being shared with Canada.

This mod is around 1.4 GB, so make sure you have space. All together, the HOI4 Music Project will be over 10 GB. So it has been broken up into specific regions and alliances such as the UK, Commonwealth, and France all in one. I originally began gathering music back in 2004, and in early 2018 I made it my mission to gather as many as I could to fit together into the ultimate music mod. In total, this was such an ambitious project, that it took me months to gather, and hammer out the bugs I’ve run into.

Let me know if there is an error, like if a song doesn’t play, or has the wrong title attached to it. I’ve done my best to mod and research the songs that are added, to get everything done correctly but something’s may have slipped past.

If anyone feels that there is an essential song missing, please let me know. I am open to suggestions.

Don’t forget to rate it with a thumbs up if you like my mod!
