Description

HEXWORKS & CI Games have formed a co-op partnership with Laced Records to bring the towering soundtrack for action-RPG Lords of the Fallen (2023) to deluxe vinyl.

 

Music has been meticulously mastered for vinyl and will be pressed to heavyweight discs contained in spined inner sleeves, all housed in a widespined outer sleeve. Artwork is by the HEXWORKS art team.

 

The Lords of the Fallen soundtrack is a sumptuously recorded dark fantasy masterpiece. It draws upon the melodrama of Romantic opera; the requiem masses of Mozart and co; the dissonant strife of modernist 20th Century classical; and the great horror movie soundtracks.

 

Composition duties were divided between multiple award-winning composers Cris Velasco and Knut Avenstroup Haugen to achieve a unique timbre for each faction and realm in the game. Music for the Rhogar faction (handled by Velasco) is raw and violent, with guttural vocalisations, pitched-down instruments, and processed human breathing used as a rhythmic device.

 

Avenstroup Haugen was assigned to score the Radiant/Attestants faction, with his cues more sweeping and evocative of fervent worship with a sinister undertone.

 

The bulk of the live-recorded elements were performed by the Budapest Scoring Orchestra and Choir. Vocal soloists include soprano Eurielle and contralto Jess Dandy. Principal cellist of the London Symphony Orchestra, David Cohen, was recruited to express the melancholy of the world of Axiom. Keen listeners may recognise flautist Tony Hinnigan’s distinctive sound from some of the biggest Hollywood scores (Titanic, Avatar.)
