Triumph is the third chapter in the Trailerhead trailer music album series which features epic trailer music for The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Twilight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Assassin's Creed and The Chronicles of Narnia...

Trailerhead: Triumph is a collection of acclaimed trailer music, representing over twenty tracks of anthemic, cinematic music that has been featured in many of today's biggest blockbuster trailers including The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Twilight, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.

Trailerhead: Triumph continues the tradition of featuring modern orchestral and choral compositions blended with contemporary electronics and synthesis. The album was recorded in the finest concert halls and studios worldwide, including the famed Abbey Road in London, and the featured tracks have since been heard by millions of people daily in cinemas and television.

The album also includes two bonus tracks featuring up and coming remix artist Moniker fusing modern, cutting-edge dubstep with Immediate's signature orchestra and choir recordings.

Tracks like 'Ode To Power' feature a powerful choir and suspenseful orchestrations, you know the usual cliched sound that accompanies trailers for action adventure movies. Having said that, while it sounds familiar, it's still an impressive piece of music.

'State Of Endless Grace' starts off slow and quiet, but soon builds to an impressive climax.

Then there are elements of music where the choir and orchestra builds to a crescendo, there's a slight pause, and then we kick in again (usually used in film trailers where there's a brief wise crack or special effect shot before the action kicks off again) 'Incensus' and 'Ageless Empires' being the most notable.

The album contains 23 tracks and lasts for 1 hr, 16 min, 08 sec. All the music, with the possible exception of 'A Nation Born' (which feels like the music to a movie about one person's struggle to fight for their beliefs) are intense, action packed themes that sound very similar in style, but are worlds apart in terms of execution.
