Epic and dramatic maelstrom of orchestral texture, building into an intense climax. Featuring the whole orchestra in a well constructed, well paced action sequence, it's full of percussive hits, fluttering tremolos, cascading wind runs, brass stabs and a whole pit of underlying menace. Wonderfully dynamic and packing a real punch.
A hard hitting, cinematic powerhouse of a track - epic in nature but with an added dissonance to turn the feeling away from the usual majesty and heroism and towards the unnerving, foreboding and impending aggression. Massive drum hits, solid brass punches and a relentless synth bass pulse converge with ever growing marcato strings to develop into a solid paced expression of force.
A dark and brooding track of epic, cinematic menace. Mixing the deep tones of beating synths with the power of orchestral brass for a slow burning theme, the creeping doom draws closer with ever growing layers of strings and driving rhythms. A dramatic tension builder with something lurking in the shadows.
Orchestral track on a voyage of discovery, where the unexpected could be lurking around each corner. String ostinato keeps up the momentum while meandering and tense melodies from violins and choir search out a path to follow. Brass swells and rich horn and trombone lines add gravitas to an already dark and brooding atmosphere, forming a track that is steady paced but never really settled. Intriguing.
Enchanting orchestral epic. Magical and mysterious in its gently flowing piano lines and shimmering high strings, it builds on the theme with faster string ostinato and legato melodies, gradually turning into a deeper, more epic interpretation with added brass, woodwind and percussion. Without limiting yourself to the fantasy genre as it works for many other situations, think more 'fairies and elves showing their powers' than 'horsemen of the apocalypse'.
Tense orchestral track. Unsettling offbeats and ominous descending themes, mixed with fast, jagged strings, create a world of swirling intensity that cycles round, only momentarily pausing at times to rebuild again. Supported by a backbeat of percussive hits and interjecting brass stabs, it has high energy and movement with a strong gothic, epic feel.
