Re: Wilhelm Bearnhardt - Opus
Holy crap. I decided to take a listen at the first three tracks. This is so familiar that it's refreshing, yet, it exudes a style that I can't exactly define. It's really Wagnerian in some ways, and bears lots of Shostakovich-ish elements too.
Opus is so darn powerful. I can imagine this playing to some war scene from a medieval-themed movie. And that's amazing. I love the Wagnerian feels so much. And of course, the orchestra is so well-automated that it feels like a live recording. You should score this for a piano concerto and choir haha :p.
I can't exactly pronounce the next two tracks, but they are so darn gory. It's emotionally gripping in so many ways. Gothicism at its finest. This is amazing stuff.
I might buy this haha :p. I'll just wait a while for it to sink into me~
