to write a review


Took a few listens to truly appreciate
Wasn't sure about spending $20 for the DVD Audio also but the songs are very good. Took listening to it on several occasions to really enjoy. Not as good as Unearthed which is kind of a standard for me for this kind of music but a worthy addition to the collection.


Simply magnificent
This CD is just magnificent. The participation of all those musicians have created an, as mentioned in the other reviews, epic score of unreachable accoustic. If you ever wanted to get your hands on something that sounds like the trailer music of "Immediate Music" or "X-Ray Dog", here it is. And stragely, it is legal as well.
Buy and enjoy


it is so good
my mom says this when we go through kansas city. she says she can see cars crashing and bashing and so on and so fourth. it is the best music ever!!!

Honestly amazing, a must have if you are into Movie Trailer Music. Even if your not, you still gotta hear it :).


A Great Release!!
This CD is one grand voyage. The production value is excellent. Although not every track features the choir, the CD has a epic feeling with captivating tunes throughout. The dramatic opening ’Tyrannos’ sets the tone for the entire CD. Other personal favourites include ’Hosanna’, ‘Pastoral’ ’Belgorod’, ’ Dryhten’s Spell’ which starts off with an haunting music box theme and becomes more demonic when the choir kicks in in the second part, ’Lamentoso’ ’Force Majeure’ and ‘Libere’. The songs are the most effective in melodic compositions like ‘Libere’, truly amazing!!
This CD is highly recommended for trailer music fans or anyone who enjoys lush, dramatic music. An extra neat feature is the additional DVD with has the songs in 5.1 surround sound, just waiting to be played in your home cinema set! 5 stars!
Thank you CDBaby for the excellent service!


A Splendid Listen
I quite agree with Arumon's review—it is some of the best music to listen to with a group of close acquaintances or alone. While many of the tracks here intend to rouse the listener, I am pleased to report that such songs as "Pastoral" and both versions of "Lamentoso" can bring you to a more relaxed state of mind.

To CDBaby I extend my gratitude for the service.


Meeting wonderful music
This artist CD powerfully has wonderful of the melody though it has listened to CD including the film music so far. The artist who writes a wonderful score so much is after a long time. The second base album is expected by all means. Thank you.

Worth adding to your collection
I purchased this album at the same time as Unearthed by E.S. Posthumus and although I enjoy The Savage Tongue it doesn't feel as complete or well orchestrated as Unearthed

That doesn't mean this isn't a good album - it's an excellent collection of music that will be familiar to anyone who watches movie trailers. The tracks are enjoyable and make excellent background music, but they don't engage the listener as much as they might.

If you like film music (especially Hans Zimmer or Marc Mancina) then you'll enjoy this album, but you should also try the Epicon album from Globus.

Excellent collection
You know all those times when you're at the movies watching the previews, and you hear that really cool music and think, "WHERE is that piece from??" Well, here's the answer! You'll recognize many of the pieces on this CD - it's a fantastic collection of orchestral & choral trailer music.
