The Burning Legion's ongoing campaign to destroy all life in the universe originally brought the orcs to Azeroth. Now free of demonic corruption, the Horde nevertheless remains on the brink of open war with the Alliance. With the recent reactivation of the Dark Portal, the blood elves and the draenei too have joined the escalating conflict. Here then is the soundscape of the Burning Crusade: a symphonic journey through the farthest reaches of the Warcraft universe - and beyond.
