Excellent.

It's possible that Vendetta may not hook the Epic Score faithful since most of the cuts are about twice the length of Epic. This would really be a shame though because Vendetta illustrates a sort of depth that is lacking in the Epic Score formula. Songs stand on their own quite nicely, and there is a thematic development that doesn't sound like it is just a rehash of a previous one. If you love trailer music but would prefer it to be just a touch more cerebral, Vendetta is your cup of tea. Enjoy.

Best by Position Music

This album was put together so well. Every piece is at least good and many are great. I am a melody guy and this album has very strong melodies and also great rhythmic sections. If you like big and bold trailer music you will like this album.

Position Music's Best

Position Music, which includes the composers Veigar Margeirsson, Jo Blankenburg, James Dooley, and Erik Erkholm, has never really succeeded in impressing me. Having listened to the three 'Orchestral Series' albums, I concluded rightly that this group is the epitome of generic epica; each album seemed to contain 1 track repeated, copied, and edited 22 different times until they had something resembling an album, and the quick, repetitive violins, choral screams, and percussion loops gave me a headache especially as I knew exactly how beautiful this music can be. I hoped for more as I investigated 'Untold' by James Dooley, and the 'Cataclysm' albums by Erik Erkholm, but I was met with the same brand of repetitive, generic music and went away in disgust. After being led to Jo Blankenburg's 'Elysium' by the TrailerMusicNews website, I encountered this album and discovered that Blankenburg has slightly redeemed my image of Position Music. This album is quite good and is even a contender in the major epica world, and is by far the best release by Position Music which I have come across.
