EverQuest II composer does Untold Legends music

Dramatic music for killingGame music is something that never goes away. From the memorable Aeris Theme in Final Fantasy VII to the insane opening music for the Katamari Damacy games, music helps to define the game you play and the emotions you feel while playing in subtle, entertaining ways.

That’s why it was an interesting surprise to hear about the soundtrack for Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom. Laura Karpman, musical composer for EverQuest II’s soundtrack and Steven Spielberg’s “Taken” miniseries, helmed the production of this game’s score.

Karpman even decided to take an interesting reference for their game. The game’s score features lyrics adapted from a piece of medieval poetry and performed by the FilmHarmonic Orchestra and Choir. Better still, the poem used was “William Wallace”, the source of the Braveheart legend that spawned a movie and a lot of melee battles featuring huge swords and men in kilts. Talk about an action piece with a heroic score.

Of course, we’re hoping our PS3 game would get shipped to us already so we can play the game. Better still, someone can play the game while the rest of us close our eyes and listen to some hero music, imagining ourselves running into battle with a giant hammer. Sweet. Now, if only Sony would come out with a soundtrack for sale.
