Waerloga Records and Radio Rivendell present a fresh fantasy
music compilation. Fans of dark ambient, orchestral, neo folk,
video game, fantasy music will enjoy this compilation. Radio
Rivendell has gathered the 16 artists carefully with the goal
of revealing some of the best up and coming acts in the genre.
Almost all of the tracks are previously unreleased. In short
a dark, moody and varied compilation, with a high quality
of music. You can see the compilation as an instrumental soundtrack
to several (not existing) fantasy music films or games...
is a non-commercial, non-profit making web-based radio station
dedicated to playing fantasy music. The station has been online
since 2001 and its music content is mainly from fantasy films
like Lord of the Rings, Conan, Willow,
etc. It also features music from well known computer games
including Warcraft, Baldur's Gate, Dungeon
Siege and many more.
core listeners are either roleplay fans who want some ambient
background music when they are playing, or fans of soundtracks
recently the station has also started to play music from unknown
artists who have either scored music to obscure games that
never made it into the mainstream, or from artists who compose
for the love of it.
of this collection, for me, include:
the Green - The Heroes Return: This is possibly the collection's
most mainstream style theme tune and has a lot of energy.
of Seraphim: As impressive as any movie soundtrack you'll
hear. In fact I was reminded of Patrick Doyle's music - especially
from the movie Eragon.
Pavillion: An interesting slow track that builds nicely.
from the Dragon's Lair: A great track which gets the blood
pumping - ideal to listen to when playing a game that involves
a race against time, or some sort of chase.
Mermaid: Part I: The Storm: Arguably this compilation's
most beautiful piece. By far and away my favourite track.
It sounds not unlike Danny Elfman's incidental music for Edward
Scissorhands. In fact there are more than a few Elfman
beats used through out this piece.
this compilation is pretty impressive and showcases a lot
of new talent I wonder how many people will actually want
to purchase this when they can listen to an endless stream
of music for free on Radio Rivendell's website.
I think it's worth buying and will find a welcome home amongst
any soundtrack, or roleplay fan's collection.
