The Red Opera

Enter a place of macabre display, where performances are made with living actors until they aren’t anymore… Join the first row as a spectator, or the stage as part of the show… I wrote this song for the Red Opera and became once again part of The Goblin Explorer’s Endless (and Amazing) Dungeon. Check him […]

Dark Encounters

Both the talented artists from Mikwewa and I are great fans of Baldur’s Gate 2. And what better way to pay homage to that classic than by making a collab to its name? This song is part of these collaborations we did together. Check it out at Mikwewa’s patreon: https://patreon.com/mikwewa

Wasted Blood

This a synth-based rendition of my previous song: Wasted Blood. Meant for vampire combat in modern nights.

Fangs

Yet another song for my Vampires Music Pack. This particular song is a dark combat one.

Sabotage Aboard the MNO

Today’s song is product of a collab with Venatus Maps and inspired by another addition to Venatus Maps’s Great Expanse setting and a direct accompaniment to last month’s Pugolite Crossing map, which had in turn been built specifically with the MNO Train Cars in mind. Unfortunately, those same Train Cars have taken a bit of […]

Wasted Blood

Yet another song for my Vampires Music Pack. This particular song is a dark combat one. Relies a lot on strings and a church organ, two type of instruments I relate a lot to gothic horror and vampires. I hope you enjoy and find many uses for it.

The Skeleton Battle

This song was written for a free request made by the amazing guys and patrons from Cast Die Podcast. Check them out here: https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Cast-Die-Podcast-Podcast/B08K573LVH

Aceroc

This song was requested by Wkavengers and it’s about a character he plays. Here’s Aceroc background: Basically, he was abandoned as a baby in the middle of a warzone, the horseman War took him in, and he is now a God Killing Prophet/Guild Master of a Cult that Worships the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. […]

Godzilla vs Kong

I know, I normally write fantasy music, but what are King Kong and Godzilla if not fantasy? I remember being a very young kid and watching the very old King Kong movies again and again, always loved that tender monster. Godzilla always had a special place in my heart as well. I can’t remember how […]

Persian Battle

This song is product of a free request. It’s meant to be epic in nature with elements from Persian music.

Battle Ambience

This song is part of my Atmospheres album, covering an array of fantasy ambients. I’d call it fantasy elevator music, meant to suggest a place and mood. Ideal for writers, D&D players or anyone wanting to be transported somewhere far away. IMPORTANT: this ambience includes royaly free SFXs that were licensed to me, I wouldn’t […]

Varangian

The Varangian Guard was an elite unit of the Byzantine Army from the tenth to the fourteenth century and its members served as personal bodyguards to the Byzantine Emperors.

The Sea Wolves

This Viking song is about the struggle in the Vikings Age: combat, raiding, and whatnot. For this song, I ended up recording some vocals and a real tagelharpa I recently bought.

Drengr

This songs is inspired by the old norse word Drengr. According to Jackson Crawford, there is no higher compliment in Old Norse than to call a man or woman a ‘drengr,’ which in the sagas implies both reckless courage and a code of fair play. The word is also common in Viking-Age runic inscriptions.

Trollocs!

The trollocs are a constant menace in the Wheel of Time series. Completely brutal and primal. I went for a very aggressive mood with the song that represents them.

The Last Stand

Yet another epic combat-oriented song. I imagined an army standing its ground in the face of almost inescapable doom for this one.

Jungle Combat

For this one, I went for a very primal percussion and some woodwinds. I thought it could be a good underscore for jungle combats and hence the name.

The Horde

This song is definitely frenetic, couldn’t tell you what’s the real inspiration for it. I sat down at the piano and the frenetic motive came to me.

Bloodied Sword

This song is paying homage to Basil Poledouris’s Conan. It’s a soundtrack I love and I’m considering working on a music pack focused on that very classic epic vibe. That said it is one of my oldest songs and I also had to recycle it quite a bit.
