Epic Themes II


Composers: Various
Performed by: London Music Works and The City of Prague Philharmonic
Label: Silva Screen Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 02 February 2018

Epic Themes II is the follow-up to Silva Screen’s 2015 Epic Themes album. This 16 track (1 hr, 10 min, 47 sec) digital album collection features the best recent epic themes from films, games and 3 exclusive, specially commissioned tracks from up and coming composers Evan Jolly and Rick Clark - ‘Breaking Through’, ‘Striding Forward’ and ‘This Earth’...

Opening with Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL’s high octane theme from the DC character cross-over movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the album also includes Jablonsky’s sweeping and evocative ‘My Name Is Lincoln’ from The Island, Daft Punk’s explosive, minimal ‘Outlands’ from Tron: Legacy, Hans Zimmer’s electronically morphed tribal drums in “Mombasa” from Inception and concludes with the lustrous 10 minute City of Prague Philharmonic’s version (arrangement by Evan Jolly) of ‘Light of the Seven’ from Game Of Thrones.

If you're a fan of epic themes then this album showcases some of the most memorably pieces of music from the last few years. Daft Punk's 'Outlands' is always a pleasure to hear. It was also interesting to discover three new pieces of music, all of which fit well here with the more well known pieces.

It's the perfect album to dip in and out of; put on in the background while you engage in some fast-paced First Person Shooter action, but for me it's flagged up a few albums which I'm going to have to seek out.
