I always am fascinated when composers release material that’s their own and not part of a game or a film. Penka Kouneva, best known to us for her work on Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands & Gears of War 3, is releasing her own album entitled “A Warriors Odyssey” which will feature 18 tracks seemingly telling their own tale.
Having heard a smattering of preview samples I can tell you the album is absolutely epic. It feels like a constant battle theme with massive orchestral soundscapes, electronic bleeps and blips and some wonderful electric guitar solos. This is very much in the same vein as her previous video game works and anyone who picked up those soundtracks would do well by picking up this when it comes out 2nd October.
