Heroes V Music for Download

Postby Angelspit » Mar 30 2006, 17:30

Ubisoft was kind enough to share four tracks from the upcoming Heroes V with us today. The four MP3 files (Main Theme, Academy Theme, Haven Theme and Sylvan Theme) can be found on the <a href="http://forums.ubi.com/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/1851065692/m/8891032824">official forum</a>. You are probably already aware of the fact that this music was created by Paul Romero and Rob King, who worked on the previous Heroes games.

Tell us in the comment section which track is your favorite.

Sylvan Theme is by far the best theme in Heroes 5, literally said: Refreshing! Many times while I was playing Heroes 5 beta in hot seat mode, me or one of my friends have always chosen Sylvan race just because of the superb music. All I can say: Paul Romero and Rob King did a great job again! Music is one of the features that always remained at best quality in Heroes series and is one of the main reasons why I play this game ;)

If nothing else, then at least the music will most likely make me buy the game :)

Main theme is mine favorite of those... it's almost completely remade too :creative:


No. On a second thought it's for the first time the castle music :D I deny to call it that horrible new name :mad:

Academy is the best, but Sylvan is awfuly close. The Academy has the cool remix quality that makes it seem ever so epic.

Great job by Rob King and Paul Romero! I especially loved the Haven theme--absoulutely beautiful! The Haven and Academy both had a real Heroes 2 (my fav score btw) feel to them.

I think the Academy theme is the best, then the Sylvan. I don't particularly like the main theme or the Haven theme.

I agree the ones below who wrote Academy having the best melody:) At least it was the most cathing song, but how am I suppose to get some sleep now that it´s stuck inside my head (with repeat-mode on)? ;) King should make a warning note-intro before his songs: "Might cause insomnia". ;)

Oooh, Haven is superbly excellent. I do love when a bit of Opera-singing is involved in the Heroes music. Academy is also good, it has that feeling of being all about wizards locked in their libraries! Sylvan has the right feel to it but I don't like it as much as the others. The main theme is very pleasant, feels so so very right.

As others have said HoMM has always been at the pinnacle of game-music. The classical style is very appropriate for the game but the wonders that Romero and King create go beyond just excellent. More games should have this level of musical accompanyment.

Actually, Rob King is...you know, Might and magic 6, 7, heroes 2, heroes 3 and 4, I wish he gives out a Might and magic collectors album, containing ALL tracks of ALL the games, it is excellent music. Good feeling. Can it be found? The music? Somewhere?

Haven't listened to the music yet (d/l now), but I'm glad to hear everyone likes the different factions (not just all liking one, and not another). Shows that there is a lot of variance in the themes etc. Should make for a very enjoyable playing experience.

The main theme was the best of those, cause I thought that the Sylvan theme sounded a bit wierd to me and it seemed to be going on-and-on with same rythm.
The Haven brings back memories from Heroes II with the opera singing, which is a good thing. The academy was good at teh start, but nearing the end it got a bit "dark" and that seemed to be too "evil" for one-of-the-good-guys...
Can't wait for the dungeon-inferno-necropolis themes :P

Did someone notice that they changed the vocals in the Haven theme? Before there were English lyrics, now they're Latin I think.

And I wonder what happened to the old main theme, which had the same melody as the Academy theme, but played in a more medieval way (@ all who didn't play the beta).

Btw, I love the music. HOMM had and still has one of the best game scores ever.

I just listened to the tracks and I must say Im stunned!!! These music scores really got me hooked, they gave such a wonderful fantasy feeling, well the sylvan theme could have been a bit less repetive and it should have been longer, like 3+ min. Anyway Paul and Rob really does a great work with the music. Hope the evil faction themes will be just as good!! =D
