Music You Need to Own is a segment where I like an album so much I put my money where my mouth is and buy it for one lucky reader.
Two Steps From Hell is the name of a musical group comprising of Nick Phoenix and Thomas J. Bergersen. They have made a TON of incredible music for movies and trailers. I bet you’ve heard some of their tracks before, but never knew who was behind the music. Even if you did, most of their music was only available to the film industry.
In 2010 the pair decided to release an album to the public entitled “Invincible.” They followed it up with another release in 2011 called “Archangel.” I loved both of them and bought them on Amazon.com.
The first two albums were epic in their own right. The music slanted more towards the fantasy / classical genres — think 300, Spartacus or Harry Potter.
SkyWorld is more of a sci-fi / fantasy album. Each track has that signature Two Steps From Hell sound, but there are more modern elements thrown in. There’s a touch of the sounds and techniques used in electronic music. It’s Two Steps From Hell in the future, and I really like how it sounds.
You can listen to a few samples on Amazon.com to see if it’s your kind of music. However, if you work out or play games you should buy at least one of Two Steps From Hell’s albums.
It’s a great soundtrack for your personal epic moments.
