From the leader of Saturday Night Live's band, to his collaboration with David Cronenberg, to the Lord of the Rings series, Howard Shore's career as a film composer has constantly led him to new and interesting places. The project came about when Shore was in Russia, looking for a way to collaborate with the National Philharmonic of Russia and the National Arts Choral Society of Moscow; the producers of SUN just happened to contact him at the same time.
As a result, Shore wrote an hour of music for the game based on preproduction artwork and utilizing the full talents of the orchestra, choir, and renowned theremin player Lydia Kavina. The result is an enormous symphonic sound very similar to Shore's Lord of the Rings, with one key weakness: the music lacks the thematic cohesion and structure of Shore's film works.
Thunderous tracks like "Menace of the Army Wings" and "Empire Geist" provide a wall of noise and the distinctive flavor of Shore's orchestrations, but without any central thematic material, they simply become sound and fury that signifies little.
There is some ethereal choral work in "The Epitaph" and elsewhere that is effective in an ambient Get Your Mind Made Up - The Flame* - The Flame, but still lacks the backbone found in so much of Shore's Lord of the Rings. There's a significant amount of theremin material, arguably the strongest music on the album, as in "Night of the Crescent Moon;" the instrument is played in a way that evokes a human voice more than the traditional spooky sound associated with the instrument.
Kavina's playing is easily the highlight of the album, and the closest that it comes to establishing any sort of thematic cohesion. Immortal Emperor - Howard Shore - Soul Of The Ultimate Nation the end, Soul of the Ultimate Nation is undeniably a disappointing work. While featuring Shore's trademark sound and an enormously talented group of performers, the work winds up being very difficult, dense, and disorganized. A missed opportunity for all involved.

Jul 10, · Commercial (CD) published by Howe Records on Jul 10, containing original soundtrack from Soul of the Ultimate Nation with compositions by Howard Shore performed by National Philharmonic of Russia, Academy of Choral Arts, Irina Komarova, Ecaterina Popova, Lydia Kavina, Vera Volnukhina, Ludmila Golub.
Written by Thomas Glorieux - Review of the regular release. It is full of resemblances to Middle Earth, Mordor and Shelob's lair and lays a foundation without stating the obvious themes to make it truly memorable. So if you want music that continues Howard Shore's victory quest, by all means give Lord of the Rings IV: Soul of the Ultimate Nation a spin.

Jul 21, · Soul Of The Ultimate Nation is a soundscape that was built from what Shore had done with Lord Of The Rings. If you think it sounds like Lord Of The Rings it's because it does. However don't take that as me saying that it's a carbon copy. What Howard Shore has done is create a massively beautiful world through his music/5(7).
