This week I am going to talk about the music I most recently purchased, which is the album entitled SkyWorld by Two Steps From Hell. Their music is always epic in its own way and considering that all of it is composed with the one goal of licensing for film trailer and TV use, this is not really surprising. Each track has a unique identity, varying from full-blown massive orchestral pieces with profound choir vocals to more experimental mixes of electronic sound effects combined with a selection of classical instruments like strings and brass.
I have to say that this is one of the purchases this year that I am most pleased with since there is such variety in the music itself and each composition takes your imagination on a journey. My favourites so far are Titan Dream, Blackheart and Blizzard. In addition, the track which easily sends shivers down my spine is Breathe, which has such a gently building climax with a feeling of growing power and beauty.
My overall favourite, if I was forced to pick just one track from the album, is Blackheart. Perhaps it’s the slightly celtic nuances that appeal to my Scottish heart or the lilting quality of the music. See what you think yourself by watching (or should I say listening to) the video below.
