Original soundtrack from the video game Jotun, a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods in order to enter Valhalla.
Working with the Jotun team has been a complete joy and has inspired me to compose some of the most intense orchestral pieces I've written yet.
The soundtrack highlights all the great moments of the game, from the atmospheric exploration levels to the epic boss battles. A musical journey that will take you through the five corners of Norse purgatory, leaving you with a sense of wonder, excitement, hardship and triumph.
"This journey through the legends of Norse mythology is supported by utterly beautiful hand-drawn animation and a rousing soundtrack that all comes together to create a place steeped in mysticism and reverence."

"The music in Jotun is appropriately epic, resembling some of the best movie soundtracks of the past two decades."
