He Who Brings The Night

For those of you who prefer the harder, darker, edgy stuff, here’s an exclusive preview of a yet unfinished track from the upcoming album “The Power of Darkness”. Symphonic Horror Metal like you’ve (hopefully) never heard before!

He Who Brings The Night

Freedom Fighters

There has been a lot of interest in the Freedom Fighters music in the new Star Trek trailer (thanks!) so here’s some more information for you. The executives at Paramount studios ultimately had the final say in what music was used for the trailer. They ended up liking the music so much they wanted exclusive rights to use it (to avoid us from licensing it to other advertisement campaigns). This does however not mean that the music cannot be published on CD, and we’ll likely include the modified version on one of our future public releases.

Make sure you catch the trailer at your local theatre, as the surround sound mixing is EPIC!

GENESIS

Posted in Uncategorized on March 6, 2009 by nemesistjb

Many thanks for all your comments, guys! Just to clear up some misunderstandings:

NEMESIS II will be available for purchase and not exclusive to the trailer music industry. This is the product of all your relentless emails, petitions and other attempts to make us release something to the public, and as you can see it’s paying off 🙂 Thanks for your support!

In addition to Nemesis II there will be an additional album called GENESIS which will also be available to the public. It will contain our most popular tracks from NEMESIS I and LEGEND as well as some completely new tracks.

Best,

Release dates

I’m getting this question a lot. When is Nemesis II due out? Truth is, I don’t know for sure. The music is still being written and produced, and a lot of work remains. I’m hoping to have it done before the end of 2009. Meanwhile Two Steps From Hell will continue to release new albums. Our next album is codenamed “Power of Darkness” and will please many of the more hardcore epic trailer music fans.

Best,

Vocals recorded on Ocean Princess

Posted in Uncategorized on March 6, 2009 by nemesistjb

Yesterday we completed the final vocal recordings on a track titled “Ocean Princess” for Nemesis II. Merethe Soltvedt performed beautifully as always and took the music to new heights. She wrote elven lyrics for the piece, which gives it a very ethereal and smooth edge. The piece is a continuation in style and a counterpoint of the already well known piece “Merchant Prince”.

My music in the new Star Trek trailer #3

Posted in Uncategorized on March 6, 2009 by nemesistjb

You may have noticed there’s a new Star Trek 11 trailer (#3). What a beautifully done trailer! I’m proud to be a part of this production. The music used is a modified version of the “Freedom Fighters” track on TSFH’s “Legend” album.
