"Tales of the Thorns" is an album that chronicles the dangerous odyssey of the 'Vile Thorns', a band of elven rogues. On a journey from their homelands through the barren wastes of the southern tundras they uncover the plan of the powerful and evil Ice King to summon the colossal energies of the worlds core and in so doing transform himself into a god. The lands will be devastated, the world will shatter and nothing will survive. Only the Thorns, a despised and outcast group, can save their home world from obliteration.
Trekking amongst treacherous mountains of Ice, and evil forsaken foes they must battle their way deep into the ice kingdom, fighting against armies of the undead in a race against time. This tale is told in the style of a film/game score. So put on your best headphones, disconnect the phone, close your eyes, and hear the thrilling themes of the Vile Thorns as they adventure through the realms of dreams and imagination.
A symphonic adventure!
Composed and performed with the Vienna Symphonic Library, Hetoreyn's latest Opus "Tales of the Thorns' promises a roller coaster ride of drama, heroism and fun filled adventure. Primarily a musical story of the guild 'Vile Thorns', but also music for role-play and gaming. A short role-play based story will be posted soon on Hetoreyn's website which gives a deeper explanation of the music. But we feel that the listener should also be able to hear the music without too much explanation so that the imagination is allowed full reign to enjoy the adventure.
More of Hetoreyn's music can be found here on CD baby and also from his website: www.hetoreyn.com
Hetoreyn is currently involved in writing modern symphony and continues to blur the lines of film music and symphony to bring a new generation of orchestral music lovers the kind of music they would hope to hear in the 21st century.
