Echoes of War
Simply put, Echoes of War could be summed up as an album of orchestrated music from the games of Blizzard Entertainment – StarCraft, Warcraft, Diablo and World of Warcraft. But in reality, it's much more than that – Echoes of War marks the first large-scale game-music project in the western world.
We at Eminence are huge fans of the game-music genre, which is exactly why we formed. Game-music, like that of Blizzard Entertainment's awe-inspiring games, is some of the best and most varied in the world, but it is also some of the most under-recognized and under-appreciated. From the adrenaline-filled highs, to the tear-jerking lows, it's the music in our favorite games that truly guides our emotions.
So beyond being a simple musical album, Echoes of War aims to put the music of Blizzard Entertainment's games in the spotlight, to be appreciated on their own merits, with a full symphony orchestra, and backing choir to perform and pay homage to them. It is a project of love, made by fans of Blizzard Entertainment's games, and as such, the musical pieces are recognizable from the games, but ultimately different interpretations. Our arrangers and musicians have put a little piece of themselves into each track, and we think that the end result is nothing short of outstanding.
The Echoes of War contains a behind the scenes DVD featuring an Echoes of War documentary and two audio CD's which feature 15 tracks and over ninety minutes of orchestral music including exclusive arrangements from World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, StarCraft: Ghost, StarCraft II and Diablo III!
