Echoes of War: The Music of Blizzard Entertainment music CD announced


If you play Blizzard videogames, you know they don't mess around when it comes to the musical score of their titles. This games company is consistently known for releasing titles with fantastic music, and we figure it was about time they released a collection for fans. 

The only way you could make a collection of their music better is to have it all performed by the Eminence Symphony Orchestra. Amazingly, this is exactly what took place. This dream team worked together to pull together a fine collection of songs from Warcraft III, World of Warcraft (including music from the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King), StarCraft, StarCraft II, Diablo II, Diablo III, and even StarCraft: Ghost

Pre-sales of this CD set have already been launched. A limited edition "Legendary" CD/DVD compilation ($49.95) and a standard CD release ($29.95) will both be available for your pre-ordering pleasure at Echoes of War's Web site.

In the limited edition release:

  • Double-disc album
  • Inside the Echoes of War DVD
  • 32-page Wide Format booklet
  • Nine artcards from Diablo III, Starcraft II, WoW: WotLK
OriginalSoundVersion has a full feature on this album, including a great interview with Eminience director Hiroaki Yura.
