City of the Dead is a music track that is unlocked in Sophanem when entering the city for the first time. Once the player starts Contact!, Back to Life replaces this.


Like most music tracks unlocked in the Kharidian Desert, City of the Dead draws influence from real-world Egyptian and 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.


  • The track was reworked with the release of Menaphos.
