WHOA! Ramin composing Gears of War 4! Sign me UP!! can´t wait to hear it!! http: //www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2016/08/26/game-of-thr ones-composer-provides-score-for-gears-of-war-4.aspx?utm_con tent=buffer12d0e&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&u tm_campaign=buffer
Booooo why not Jablonsky?
on Ramins facebook there is a BTS video and there are few snippets of music, I must say the Gears Theme is pretty cool
That still sounds amazing!! I'll Miss Steve but woah, Ramin will kick ass alright.
ok, this is interesting...Room for ethnic exploration and rock guitars.
As long as it's better than Judgment. It would be hard not to be, in fairness.
Absolutely true Ed ! lol
If it gets any close to GOW 2 I'll be happy.
Ramin Djawadi is overrated
He's started his solo career what, 11/12 years ago. If he was, he wouldn't still be around.
He's a talented guy, works his ass off and delivers what he's asked to do.
So, I have already listened to it - from start to finish - multiple times now and I simply love it more and more with each time I press "play"! My god, the CD is only hour long and not only there is 6 prominent themes, but also - I think - more than 4 smaller ones that are built upon them. I basically discover new things every time I listen to it. How in the world was Ramin able not only establish, but develop them in such a relatively short time frame is beyond me. This is an amazing score and not only did it deliver everything I love about Ramin's style (with some callbacks to his previous work, such as similar approach and use of instruments with The Horde and with the Dothraki), but it has also expanded upon it (those woodwinds and mainly brass - oh my god, I want to hear more of those horns and trombones in the future). I adore it!
Also, bragging time - the suite here was done by me. I wanna thank Hybrid Soldier for providing me with the opportunity, I had a great time editing it! :)
The film was absolutely atrocious, but this score, in my humble opinion, is one of Ramin's best works (Pacific Rim is the only one that I can think of that is better). I would hope for a sequel just to hear more development on this score. :)
I like to share with you what I think (after watched the film) is the Chronological Order for the album tracks. First of all, I must to point that the album realese have a various "Theme Tracks", for example: Warcraft, The Horde, Medivh, Honor, Lothar or Gul'dan.... And many music that we can hear along the movie is missing in this realese. I made this tracklist based on my perception of which of this "Themes" sounds first in the movie or at least a piece of them:
1. The Beginning 2. Honor 3. The Horde 4. Lothar 5. Medivh 6. Forest Ambush 7. Strong Bones 8. Victory and Defeat 9. My Gift to You 10. Gul'dan 11. Half Orc, Half Human 12. The Book 13. Whatever Happenes 14. The Incantation 15. Two Worlds Colliding 16. Llane's Solution 17. Mak'gora 18. For Azeroth 19. Warcraft
And if you like to know on what part of the movie I based my tracklist, be careful
1. This track, or part of this sounds on the ”Production Logos intro” 2. A little bit of “Honor” theme can listen in one of the first scenes, between Durotan and his pregnant wife Draka. 3. Next to the scene with Durotan and Draka we can listen this track along the Prologue scene when part of The Horde travels trough the portal to Azeroth. 4. We met Lothar, and some scenes traveling to Stormwind or flying to Karazhan. 5. We met Medivh in Kalazhan. 6. Forest Ambush (exactly this) 7. The conversation in the night between Garona, Lothar and Khadgar while they are traveling to Orc Camp. She explain a little bit her origins and talk about her Strong Bones. 8. Durotan and his Orcs met with Lothar and the King but is all a trap, and the loss for Lothar is really bad. 9. Medivh is sick and have a conversation with Garona, and gives her a magical gift. 10. Gul’dan manipulates Orgrim to betray Durotan. 11. Lothar still sad about his loss, and Garona try to encourage him. 12. Khadgar travels to Dalaran and discover the true behind Medivh sickness. 13. Draka says goodbye to his baby. 14. Khadgar free Lothar and join forces against Medivh in Karazhan. 15. While, Orcs and Humans fight in the Orc Camp and Gul’dan open the portal again. 16. King Llane and his troops rescue the human prisoners but the portal closes and the end is very tragic. 17. After the end of the battle Lothar comes to make his part, and the Mak’gora scene is for sure one of the best in the entire movie. 18. The Alliance of Azeroth is born and it’s ready for fight. 19. End Credits
For those who have seen the film, is the OST presented in chronological order? And is "Warcraft" an end credits suite? It works well coming right after "For Azeroth"
I think there are a lot of theme suites in the there... Warcraft does come at the end, and I think "The Beginning" at the beginning from what I remember... The second half of the OST does look chronological to me...
"The Beginning" comes at the beginning? Guess I should've guessed that... lol
The "Warcraft" track is a little bit different from the end credit music, just like it was in Clash Of The Titans.
For once my fears not become real with a movie score.
Not. Warcraft Score is not Pacific Rim additional music.
Not. Warcraft Score is not Game of Thrones bastard.
Yes. Warcraft Score is just Warcraft Score, And what a original score that's Ramin Djawadi has wrote!
I love how the Main Theme is implemented in some parts of the tracks along the album. The music for the Orcs (A.K.A. the Horde) is a brilliant mix of beautiful and darkness. And I consider that this music is the central part of the album. That's good, ok, but this make that the music for the human heroes (Allianz of Azeroth) is really really scanty and not developed at all.
Not the case with Medivh theme, OMG what a magnificent theme! Listen how is mixed with the Horde music is just great.
My biggest surprise is the few action-tracks that this soundtrack includes. Coming from a movie that talks about WAR is surprising the slow pacing in a lot of tracks and in general is my feeling with the Album experience. Nothing bad I must say, only strange .
Now 8.5 out 10 is my score for this amazing work. Probably if this music work well in the film I will turn up to 9 or more, Who knows?
And yes, of course....listening this you can breathe Real Epic.
There's no way this score can be half as good as any of the World of Warcraft game scores.
I hope we'll get to hear the stormwind theme in its full form at one point during the movie.
I didn't say that, but it's true... :/
Your evil twin brother?.. @Edmund
That's why I advocate optional user accounts.
Thats funny you say that Edmardo, as I Think the ingame music of WoW is one of the worst aspects of the game. Whereas a Lineage2 has really really good ingame music.
I guess tastes differ ^^
Evil Twin Brother of Edmund Meinerts
Well, Macejko would disagree with you Edmardo. And stop using my brother's last name.
World of Warcraft has some of the best game music, period. Mists of Pandaria is particularly great, but they're all solid scores!
They get better with every expansion. I can't think of a game with more immersive music and that's saying something. I agree that MoP is the best yet, Jade Forest and Valley of the Four Winds have absolutely beautiful music.
For me, the most immersive game score (not best, necessarily...but the one that never fails to IMMEDIATELY transport me into another world) is Skyrim by Jeremy Soule. Mists of Pandaria (on which Soule was one of the composers) gets serious points from me simply because parts of it sound a loooooot like Skyrim, including the "Valley of the Four Winds" track you mention!
Agreed. "Serpent Riders" from the soundtrack album sounds like Soule all over the place btw. A lot of today's film scores can't live up to that if you ask me. Guild Wars 2 remains his best solo effort imo. Haven't got around to playing skyrim much, though the main theme is goosebumps-worthy.
@Ed M Perhaps, but I read somewhere that some of the themes from the game were used which got me extra excited to hear this!
