Warner Bros and WaterTower Music announced today the November 1 release of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North that is composed by the award-winning composer, Inon Zur. The soundtrack will debut day and date with the Action RPG video game, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. After three highly acclaimed performances of the music at E3, Inon Zur has continued the tradition of iconic The Lord of the Rings music and crafted an epic and beautiful nineteen track score to the game, recorded at famed Abbey Road studios in the U.K.
Inon Zur said:
“Composing the music for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North was a very inspirational, creative process. The story is very compelling, and this had a direct influence on my music. As a long time fan of The Lord of the Rings, I always dreamed to be a part of this franchise, and when this dream came true, I was extremely motivated to tell the emotional story of this dark heroic adventure and its captivating characters. Bringing on board the London Philharmonia Orchestra at the legendary Abbey Road studios magnified the music to new heights. I am so grateful to Warner Bros. for their support and I’m very excited to have you, the players, be a part of this musical experience and hope you will be as engaged as myself.”
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North – Original Video Game Score will be available at all digital retailers and the CD will be available at Amazon.com on November 1, 2011.
