Gothic Storm: Epicstep

Epicstep is Gothic Storm’s latest industry release.

With this new album, the company makes a step away from dubstep genre, which is currently very popular in trailer music  – as well as in many other musical spheres. Epicstep remains close in style to dubstep, however – the notion of “step” is still here: drumstep, brostep… This new album features a lot of electronic, industrial and futuristic sounds, enhanced by orchestra and choir.

With massive percussion, live strings, real choir and wild electronic productions, EpicStep is the electronic trailer album you were waiting for”, Gothic Storm says. “The next step that destroys dubstep, Gothic Storm brings you the sounds of 2014 and beyond – drumstep, brostep and industrial in a mind-melding display of production virtuosity. With live choir and world-class string players from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, this is as amazing as it gets.”

Epicstep was composed by Chris Haigh, Dan Popplewell, Matt Welch, Audio Android and Rob Oxenbridge.

The album cover artwork was made by Sam Hayles (DOSEProd).

Finally, don’t miss this month’s “Free track of the month” at Gothic Storm, since the cue in question – “Planet Destroyer” –  is featured in Epicstep. This piece was composed by Chris Haigh and AudioAndroid and is available for free download, along with a wallpaper. Download it here.

UPDATE – May 10, 2013 – EpicStep is now available to the public for purchase through iTunes and Amazon.

    hmmm… an “acquired taste” for me. 😉 I can’t help thinking it would sound better without the electronic experimentation which kinduv gears it towards a robot hitting robot trailer! But I think the music should experiment and I guess this pushing expectations. Waiting for the trailer concept album (aren’t all concept albums just soundtracks in another guise?)
