[s.c.o.u.r.g.e] Swift Strike - combat

Let me show you the next track in the chain of Scourge music cues! Replacing the old looping combat music of Scourge gave the idea to pull in some variety - after all the combat is one of the most important parts in this fantasy RPG! So a new chaotic combat track has been born, with a lot of tension/disharmony/chromaticism and atonality, and some more balanced speed than in the previous quick paced one.

It consists of 2 major ideas plus some chaotic passing parts to give the basic urgent feeling. I have used strings and brass at start and later added some woodwinds (clarinets and contrabassoon) for a better orchestral sound and variety. Also a set of very heavy drums is used. One of the major ideas is a quite fast, impulsive and combatant part, while the other is something like the battle dance of a mad but pitiable being somehow dragged into the flowing of the story.

Have a listen: Link.
