It is actually unlocked in Sophanem when you enter the city for the first time.

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.

This track was reorchestrated on 5 June 2017.


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.
