Official Website Description:Edit

Two Steps From Hell Legend, released in 2010. Powerful and dark with some really powerful and brooding tracks. Lots of hidden gems on this album that have not yet found their way into film campaigns. Recorded by Capellen orchestra in Czech and Los Angeles.

YouTube Channel Description:Edit

Power Of Darkness was released March 12 2010. One year in the making, it features 32 compositions recorded with the Capellen Orchestra in Czech, drums recorded in Los Angeles, various soloists from around the globe and choir recorded in Utah.

Power of Darkness comes on a specially-designed Two Steps From Hell flashdrive and features choral and non-choral versions of all compositions. Early versions of Power Of Darkness cues have already found their way into the ad campaigns of Prince Of Persia and 2012.

Power Of Darkness is an epic trailer music release that is the best sounding, most focused music that we have ever recorded. It combines artistry with impact.
