World of Warcraft
Russell Brower, Neal Acree, Jason Hayes, Tracy Bush et al
New entry. Another video games composer makes his debut in the Classic FM Hall of Fame.
This stirring epic video game music, reminiscent of the Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean scores, comes from the mind of Russell Brower. He brings to his compositions more than three decades of experience as an award-winning composer and music director — working in film, TV, theme parks and games.
Asking any fan of Warcraft for their favourite soundtrack selection from the game is a tough question. First of all, with over seven million players there are an awful lot of differing opinions. Playing together online in a fantasy world filled with orcs, night elves and dwarves, World of Warcraft is as much a social gathering as a game for many gamers. Secondly, with five additional add-ons expanding the original game there are hours of music from which to choose. Perhaps Brower's Invincible, a track imbued with emotion and portent — taken from a pivotal moment in add-on Wrath of the Lich King — will strike a chord with those familiar with the epic story of Arthas, the fallen prince.
