Blizzard is ondanks de komende release van WarCraft III toch een beetje in de Diablo II stemming. Gisteren kregen we de mogelijkheid om een exclusief kunstwerk van Keith Parkinson te kopen, vandaag mogen we genieten van een Diablo II Mp3. Het nummer heet Ice Caves en is geschreven door Matt Uelmen. Matt was zo vriendelijk om iets te vertellen over het nummer, zodat het meer tot leven komt.Though I was hoping for a combination of some of my favorite moments from Bernard Herrmann's "Vertigo" and a sequence in Orff's "Trionfo di Afrodite" with this one, I ended up with a rather frustrating product which really didn't work as well as either of my two models. The jarring breaks between the hypnotic harp ostinato and the brass hits succeeded more in breaking a consistent mood than creating one. If I were to step back into the time machine and rewrite this one, I would try to keep the pacing away from the extremes used here, and would have also used a bit more of the electronic and choral textures which I consciously avoided in these sessions. What remains after too much editing only goes half of the way there - a bit of a shame seeing as how interesting an enviroment like "ice caves" should be.
