sorry for yet another post on this matter, but I really love picturing this scene in the final film.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z28lwyQjuTY watch from 0:25
I can imagine something similar to this being played during the sequence. Its fast, epic, and will work well for this scene in my eyes.
Plus being Howard shore, im sure we will get something 168 times better!!
let me know your thoughts too on how you think this scene should play out music wise Wink

Yes yes yes!! [In reply to] Can't Post

This was some awesome piece of Epic music :) thanks for that! Yes, i could imagine the paste of this music to be in the last EEEEEpic battle between them two, damn can't wait really. I could imagine a song like this or a more up beat and epic (i got to stop using Epic :P) Ringwraith theme. :)

" Why, O people of Noldor! Fėanor cried. Why should we longer serve the jealous Valar, who cannot keep us nor even their own realm secure from their enemy? And though he be now their foe, are not they and he of one kin? Vengence calls me hence, but even were it otherwise I would not dwell longer in the same land with the kin of my father's slayer and of the thief of treasure. Yet i am not the only valiant in this valiant people. And have ye not all lost your King? And what else have ye not lost, cooped here in a narrow land between the mountains and the sea? Here once was light, that the Valar begrudged to middle-earth, but now dark levels all. Shall we mourn here deedless forever, a shadow-folk, mist-haunting, dropping vain tears in the thankless sea? Or shall we return to our home? In cuivičnen sweet ran the waters under uncloaded stars, and wide lands lay about, where a free people might walk. There they lie still and await us who in out folly forsook them. Come away! Let the cowards keep this city!"

No [In reply to] Can't Post

I want something Dwarvish, Thorin-ish and Azog-ish by turns, not generic-sounding music. Howard will nail it, just like he did 'An Ancient Enemy'. I get goosebumps when Azog starts to battle Thorin, the male choir is fantastic.

Can't argue with you about that [In reply to] Can't Post

Damn, An ancient enemy is probably the best piece of music in AUJ soundtrack :)

When I first spied the title, I thouight that Two Steps From Hell was performing a cover of the Blue Oyster Cult song (I would still like to see an animated BOC music video with Elric's Strormbringer transforming into an electric guitar).

Yes, the music is quite dramatic. I can imagine something of the sort in the films.

It's good but sounds more sci-fi epic to me [In reply to] Can't Post

I do like it, it's got a great epic sound to it, but to me the sound or style is modern. I think it would be good in a sci-fi setting.

For Middle-earth though and particularly an Azog and Thorin showdown, I think it should be something that's more ancient-epic sounding rather, than sci-fi epic. Something that has a more gut feeling, a more physical feeling than this, which IMO has a somehow more high-tech feeling to it, to me.

It has a great sound but I keep imagining a 'Riddick' movie.

Priceless as always Darkstone // [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

...Is it bad that I can totally picture that? [In reply to] Can't Post

And now I've got a serious case of the giggles. Darkstone, you're messing up my headspace before I even see this movie!


....And now I really want to hear this over a Hobbit gag reel or fight montage. LaughLaughLaugh

Personally [In reply to] Can't Post

I see this as Smaugs intro song. At least from .25 to about the 1.00 minute mark. It's very grand sounding... which smaug is.

The other "Black Blade" [In reply to] Can't Post

Since I brought it up, here is the Blue Oyster Cult song "Black Blade" with lyrics by fantasty/s.f. writer Michael Moorcock. And, no, I can't see this being used in Jackson's The Hobbit films.
