EPIC: Energetic symphonic, orchestral rock. An effort by a production music company to make their tracks more accessible to the public. Globus is comprised entirely of “producers, musicians and vocalists” from Immediate Music. All tracks w/ vocals. RIYL: E.S. Posthumus, Two Steps From Hell
1 (7:36) –Starts slow, soundtrack-esque electronica, slowly transitions to more dramatic orchestral bombast (think climactic movie scene). Airy female vocals throughout. Ends with a whimper.
2 (6:05) –Very full, very symphonic, with male vocals and rock interludes scattered throughout. Sounds like the credits of a summer blockbuster.
3 (3:37) –Dramatic strings, metal, chanting, female vocals. Definitely vibes of E.S. Posthumus and intense battles.
4 (6:30) –Medley: dramatic choir cuts to intense symphonic rock with male vocals and Adhan-esque PA singing. Diverse and interesting.
5 (5:55) –A giant crescendo of a song with prominent male vocals. Fits that moment before the storm, as well as the storm itself.
6 (4:24) –Music for a grand reveal or montage of progress, followed by conflict. Latin male vocals front and center, backed by dramatic choir.
7 (4:40) –Very different song smack dab in the middle of the album. Slow melancholic folk guitar with lamenting male vocals with sparse string backing.
8 (4:12) –Very poppy. Driving rhythm with male vocals, very up in your face. Catchy.
9 (5:19) –Spy suspense music with more Middle Eastern qualities, more Adhan PA vocals.
10 (6:29) –Slow paced pop rock ballad with female vocals. Sounds like music for a series finale.
11 (7:22) –Another very different song. Peaceful piano, whistling and vocals, lyrics of space and exploration. Surprise Great Gig in the Sky vocals about 3/4 of the way through. Almost jazzy,
Cowboy Bebop quality to it. Reminiscent of Desperado by the Eagles, but slower.
12 (7:25) –Like the happy ending to a grand adventure with bittersweet lyrics. Triumphant vocals. Bagpipes! Fake ending, with slow string epilogue. Best song on the album.
