Panu Aaltio’s score for The Home of Dark Butterflies, released on CD by MovieScore Media in 2009, received a lot of acclaim from fans and critics alike. The Finnish composer is now back with an impressive score that showcases another side of his musical vocabulary: this is a big, epic, majestic, exciting and powerful adventure score where an outstanding thematic approach to the heroic aspects of the story forms the backbone of the score.
Also known as Paladin, Dawn of the Dragonslayer is a fantasy epic that is released on DVD in UK on February 13, co-inciding with our soundtrack album release. There is some truly ear-shattering, ‘on-the-edge-of-your-seat’ action scoring in Aaltio’s score, but it’s probably the driving and up-beat heroic themes that will make this score very popular among fans of big and epic film music. Enjoy!
