Ceremony is the theme associated with Thanatos. You first hear it at the ruins to the east of Pandora, then again at the ruins north of Northtown. The theme is played briefly at sunken fortress just before Hexas battle, and then it begins just before the final showdown with Lich in the Mana Fortress.

This song is track 32 on the official soundtrack.


The American and Japanese soundtracks use identical titles.
