Do you like trailers’ music? Sometimes, we see movie or game trailers and hear their magical and epic sound. Last year, I met with Two Steps from Hell on Youtube. After I heard their music first time, I though it was a part from Hans Zimmer soundtracks. If you are a fan of epic music and movie or game trailers, Two Steps from Hell performs music satisfy your expectation from epic music. Actually, it is not a music band. Two Steps from Hell is a music production company founded by Thomas Bergersen and Nick Phoenix. Los Angeles, California based company produces trailer music for movies, TV series, computer games, and so on. The name of the company resembles a rock or heavy metal band’s name. After you meet their magical music, you will feel the atmosphere from ancient era.
Their music used in trailers for some movies like Star Trek, Prince of Persia, Pirates of the Caribbean, No Country for Old Men, The Fighter, X-Men: First Class, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, X-Men, The Town, Matrix, Inception, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Dark Knight, 2012, Avatar, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. It is a successful list, right? We also heard their music in trailers for some TV shows like Game of Thrones, Frozen Planet, Merlin, Doctor Who, and Blue Mountain State. And, computer games! I am a fan of computer games soundtracks. Hearing their music in some perfect games’ trailers fascinates me. You could hear their music in trailers for Mass Effect 2 and Killzone 3.
The company does not produce albums for public. They only have two public albums under the name Two Steps from Hell. They also released two public albums under Thomas Bergersen’s name. The company has many music catalogs used by film producers. Although they are not public albums, it is easy to find them on the internet. Their public albums are compilations of those catalogs. Their public discography is;
- Invincible (2010) is the first compilation. You should hear Protector of the Earth, Freedom Fighters, Heart of Courage and 1000 Ships of the Underworld are my favorites. I suggest the album extremely. Do not lose the magical album.
- llusions (2011) is an album published under Thomas Bergersen’s name.
- Archangel (2011)
- Sun (2012) is an album published under Thomas Bergersen’s name.
I suggest all albums of Two Steps from Hell and albums under Thomas Bergersen name. Epic music, choir, and fascinating atmosphere will take you to another world. If you are a fan of epic music, Two Steps from Hell creates music for you.
