Celebrate Halloween with Kingdom 2 Trailer Series: Apocalypse

October 16, 2013 5:00:00pm

World War Z. Pacific Rim. Star Trek, Elysium, and After Earth. This summer saw a list of blockbuster movies that told stories of the end of the world. Our costumed heroes in the Marvel and DC Universes alike managed to save the planet from evil foes whose only motive was assured destruction. Even the season’s two big comedies,The World’s End and This is the End capitalized on viewers’ apocalyptic fears and End Times notions.

While we at Kingdom 2 hesitate to psychoanalyze the public’s desire to see the the Earth destroyed over and over again, we did see a perfect project for one of our favorite composers, Mike G. And so, we proudly present: KING-0096 Kingdom 2 Trailer Series: Apocalypse. The latest release from our signature breed of epic, in-your-face trailer albums, Apocalypse features explosive drums, haunting atmospheric soundscapes, and electronic textures.

Every day film trailers become more of an art form of their own; short films with precision editing that have full story arcs. It makes sense, then, that music has become required that meets the complexities of the trailers. Particularly for the action movies Apocalypse was created for, the year has shown a retreat from heavy orchestrations and big melodies. Rather, trailers opt for sound design, huge drum hits, and suspenseful stop-downs and pauses. When more melodic moments are required, trailers often use electronic music.

The album will be released just in time for Halloween:
