For some time I've been collecting epic orchestral music, mainly from games. Maybe you could help me with that a little :D


Some examples (did you need any really?):

Eh, Battlefield theme... getting annoying for those who know it, no?

Jeremy Soule...

Bob & Barn & stuff...

There's soo much of stuff out there and I need to catch up, filter out to fit at least a part of it in my lifetime.

So if you happen to have some pieces you could recommend (maybe your own? yeah!) - throw them at me!

And knowing that my musical experience is quite limited in fact, you're welcome to add some of your own favorites.

Kthx ;)


P.S. Encounter With Mass Destruction by Chotoro is on this very playlist as well :D

Morrowind had some good music (limited though, only 6 tracks of 3 minutes apice...

Alice had some amazing music too, though not exactly what I would call epic. It was dark and a little scary.

An example of true epic would be the redbook audio from Descent2. That stuff was amazing.
