It’s rare for me to run across a movie soundtrack that sounds as... well, epic as this one does. The film was about the clashing of two barbarian armies, and the music very aptly reflects this. Most of the tracks are comprised of heavy kettle and bass drums backed up by just the right amount of strings and woodwinds. Some tracks have chanting of various kinds in the background as well. To me, this album simply screams “orc army on the move.” I’m especially impressed by the third track, Do You Think I’m A Saxon. Often when it’s after midnight and I’ve just had a particularly hard day at work, I pop the album into my truck’s CD player and skip right to this track, playing it as loudly as my speakers can handle. The music sounds exceptionally harsh and violent, which I could easily see a need for at any gaming table.
