Heroes Medley by Paul Romero

Postby Angelspit » Aug 23 2010, 16:20

Here's a lovely medley of some of the Heroes of Might and Magic classics performed by Paul Romero himself in Pianestival in France on Tuesday July 6th 2010. It includes the Grasslands melody from Heroes II, the Heaven melody from Heroes V and the Academy Theme from Heroes I.

Thanks Marzhin! Let's hope that the Heroes Music duo (Romero and Rob King) will be back once again for Heroes VI.

Last night before I went to sleep I thought about playing through a few HoMM II campaigns (greatest game of the series that it is). This settles it :)

I want the sheet music! My favorite part of Heroes is the music. I still play Heroes II just to reexperience it.

the Academy Theme from Heroes I

Heroes IV, you mean? :) But I didn't hear much of it, there was only one short piece I recognised from it.

Very nice. I have almost every piece of music ever used in a HoMM game on my iPod still :P If Paul and Rob do end up doing the music for the 6th installment (which they better!) It would be awesome if they had a lot of little subtle notes from the old music mixed in with the new tracks. (Kinda like they did with the end credits track for Heroes 5=a nod to Sorceress theme from heroes 2).

Besides being an amazing piece, it shows the degree of passion he has for the music in the games...out of all of the things he could've played, he chose Heroes. That says something.

Well, of course he's going to choose to play music he personally composed, isn't he. :P
In any case, thanks for posting. I sincerely hope he'll be back for H6.

Meh, i never could listen to the whole music outside the game... always feels like something is missing.

Such a great musician. I'ver heard a lot of good music in games but nothing can compares to some of his themes. H2 has the best soundtrack I've ever listened.

It's great to hear it this way, with only a piano, so pure... I love it.

Yes, Heroes 2 has some fantastic music, especially the "Grasslands theme".
I wonder where I can get the sheet music?

Suddenly I feel a great urge to play HOMM 2...Quite surprised to see that I'm not alone!
Best game EVER for me.

Yeah, H3 was in many ways the pinnacle of the series so far, but Homm2 was my favourite. I loved the wizard campaign where you had to get through all the gateways to that artifact before all of the other players did.
