Against Giants

This was commissioned by Logan from Death Angel Entertainment. He’s been working on creating some awesome card games and fantasy content. You should check it out at http://DeathAngel.Online

The North Wind

This song was inspired by The Hidden Blade. A new and great book by author Marie Mullany. The music tries to capture the main protagonist, which is a very interesting character and a breath of fresh air on what is the fantasy genre. You can get the book here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B099Q5YPVB?ref_=pe_3052080_276849420

The Void Dragon

This week I did a collab with the amazing Cze and Peku. They specialize in fantasy maps for roleplaying games like DnD and have been sharing their talent with the TTRPG community for a long time now, creating some of the most amazing maps. So it was really an honor for me to put music […]

To The North

I wrote this song while thinking of an epic journey. A trip to the far and freezing north. Through mountains, snow, and mist.

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


This Viking song is about blacksmithing, the Norse didn’t have a Viking god per se but Wayland the Smith was a strong figure related to smithing, and so I chose to write this song inspired by him.

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 […]

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 […]


This Viking song is about the jötunn Ægir from Norse mythology and host of the Æsir. Will writing it I imagined the gods having a feast, gathered at Ægir’s court.


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.

Glimpsing Into the One Power

This song is inspired by the Wheel of Time Series, particularly The Eye of the World, and is about the One Power, I tried to capture the idea of the characters glimpsing into it for the first time.
