Full Tilt: Saga
Saga is the first public album from the famous Full Tilt catalog, started by Kaveh Cohen and Michael Nielsen.
After receiving many requests from fans, the duo decided to release a compilation of some of their best tracks. “After years of requests from legions of fans worldwide, the greatest hits from Full Tilt are finally coming to iTunes in one blockbuster release, Saga.”
Saga offers “Pure, unadulterated EPICNESS!”, according to Full Tilt. The cues have been used in various advertising campaigns for movies and games; recent placements include The Lone Ranger (“Coup de Grâce”), Lincoln (“Convergence”), The Bourne Legacy and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (“Still Water”), Spec Ops: The Line (E3 Trailer) (“Shellshock”), Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (“Interstellar”)…
One of the best uses of Full Tilt’s music so far is probably the one with “Conviction” in the last part of the Robin Hood trailer (from 1:27 to the end), which went out in 2010:
The Full Tilt catalog, originally owned by Ninja Tracks, the trailer music company founded by Michael Nielsen and Kaveh Cohen, is no longer runned by them, and is now the property of Warner/Chappell Production Music. Ninja Tracks is now developing a new catalog, Revolution, which already includes the successful Zero album.
Saga is available to the public for purchase through iTunes and Amazon. Physical CD releases might follow – it will depend on the reception of the album and the number of people wanting CDs. “It’s possible… if there’s enough interest from the fans. Let us know!” Full Tilt says.
