    Red face Special LOTRO soundtrack podcast

    Hey guys,
    I'm Sylvart from Laurelin EU server, MMO blogger and co-host at the relatively new Battle Bards podcast.
    It's a show about MMORPG music, where we talk geekstuff about our favorite MMO tunes.

    Our latest episode was dedicated to LOTRO and we were honored to get to interview Chance Thomas, one of LOTRO's finest composers on the show. so for all those of you who love the LOTRO soundtrack as much as we do, you can find it at: http://battlebards.libsyn.com/battle...-chance-thomas
    There is also a direct download link on the page.

    Thanks for tuning in or sharing if you enjoyed this!
    Sylvart, Laurelin EU

    Wow! That was great! This topic should actually be sticked up into the news page or in General discussion for more people to see than the Laurelin cave. This is such a treat for the people that play Lotro and love the music in it.

    Chance Thomas music is brilliant! I love the music, and then I am actually modest. I guess I am not alone in that.

    Great interview! Fantastic that you got him to the show. Is very nice to hear about the process he goes through making the music, and his thoughts about the music and game and Lotr..

    PS: Agree with the girls regards to music in LoneLands
    I also loved the story about Shire theme music . hehe

    Keep up the good work guys!!

    I definitely join the Lonelands Sountrack Apprecitation Society (even if I'm not a girl).

    Regards,
    Skro, still listening to the podcast, so more comments may arise

    Edit: and I'm not suprised at all that the Tom Bombadil (which I actually don't like that much) theme was initially designed to be a Hobbit theme. It always sounded more hobbitish to me than Bombadilesque...

    It was very interesting to hear Chance Thomas speak of the creative processes in creating those wonderful peices.

    And the more the pity to hear he hasn't been involved in the upcoming Helm's Deep; it was such a profoundly different experience to ride into Rohan enjoying the clear presence of a composer, adding that undefinable pinch of life to the plains.

    On a related note it has always struck me how some of the Rohan themes echoes a similar sound in 'Emigration Theme' by the Chieftains. Something I would have been interested in asking Chance about, especially after the extro music of the podcast reminded me of those similarities. Somehow I would both find it marvelous and wonderful if there is an inspiration as well as if it is purely random, the latter which would be very much in line with what he touch upon in the interview, about a shared coding in how we all add music to modern visual storytelling.

    Incidentally the Imigration Theme is one of my favorite pieces of music and likely one I already had underscoring my expectations of Rohan long before getting there (long before it was even announced). Moreso as I encountered it for the first time in an old documentary on the Viking exploration and migration across the Northern Atlantic, and Norse culture being one - among many - influences on the Rohirrim of the Professor. Listen to the music and you might find it having some of the same storytelling qualities as some the panelists describe in the podcast, with changing tunes and moods.

    Great and interesting stuff that only makes me appreciate Middle Earth and Lotro more. Heck, now I need to get back in there to roam some old haunts reliving the music!


    P.S: Nonsense! Tom Bombadil ROCKS!

    Thank you so much for posting this!

    I am listening to it right now.

    I have always loved the music from LOTRO and was happy to hear that Chance was brought back for RoR (still sad to hear he isn't involved in the HD expansion). It is great to hear him talk about the music.

    Chance you are the best!
