ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Globus project was born out of one composer's passion for lush, dramatic and epic cinematic music. Composer and Producer Yoav Goren has made a career from this passion - he is co-founder of L.A's Immediate Music, the world's most successful production company specializing in music for film trailers.

Goren has taken his existing trailer music compositions and fused them with contemporary styles and vocals to create the album 'EPICON'. Having recorded over 3 hours of material with 100 piece orchestra and 70 piece choir, some at London’s famous Abbey Road Studio 1, Goren spent an additional year with many talented collaborating musicians in producing the 70 minute CD.

Talented film score soloist Lisbeth Scott (Chronicles of Narnia, Munich, Passion of the Christ) kicks off the album with “Preliator”, a track whose orchestral origin was heavily used in promoting Sony Pictures’ blockbuster “Spiderman 2”. In layering Lisbeth’s powerful Latin language vocal with driving percussion and aggressive choir, the track lays the groundwork for the unique sound and style of “EPICON”. Scott Ciscon provides an incredible tenor solo in “Madre Terra”, which features lyrics co-written by Frank Musker (Il Divo, Hayley Westerna, Josh Groban). Dann P from UK rock band Vanton fuses his gritty vocal style atop lush orchestral and choir selections such as "Orchard of Mines" and “Sarabande Suite” (based on Handel’s famous work). Anneke Van Giersburgen, lead singer from the heavy rock Dutch group The Gathering, provides an amazing vocal and lyric for "Might Rivers Runs", and is featured singing in Latin on the powerful "Diem Ex Dei". The choir takes the spotlight on "La Coronacion" and "Crusaders of the Light", which blend powerful melodies and soaring orchestral performances with a dramatic sensibility borne out of Goren's long and deep infusion in the cinematic world.

"EPICON" is the first release for Imperativa Records, with productions in the works for more "trailer music" and soundtrack releases in the near future. The CD comes with a beautiful booklet containing song lyrics, striking artwork and photos.

"EPICON" evokes so many different emotions set against an inescapable visual tapestry - from dark fantasy to hopeful romance and ethnic flavors from many corners of the world. It is a trailblazing CD which Goren hopes will spur mainstream interest in this stylized yet instantly identifiable, and addictive, brand of music.

James Garth

Epic, stirring choral music
If you enjoy E.S.Posthumous, Hans Zimmer, Craig Armstrong, or any of Immediate Music's trailer music cues, then I highly recommend this CD to you.
Globus have fashioned an album which is focused and accessable yet retains the distinctive orchestral might and propulsive, rousing chords of Immediate Music's signature trailer cues. The vocals add a unique and interesting lyrical dimension to the tracks, and are stirring in their own right, but it is the pure orchestral cues which are the highlights, delivering high quality variations on some very rare and exciting themes.
The recording quality is outstanding, as are the liner notes. All in all, this is a great buy; 'Epicon' holds its own alongside 'Unearthed' in terms of quality and originality, and is one of the finest examples of this genre available for commercial purchase.

Love it or hate it, this Album is breathtaking
I'll Be The First To Admit This Cd Isn't For Everyone, But To The Select Few That Long For This Sort Of Music, This Is A Gift From On High. A Number Of The Songs Actually Brought Me To Tears. Listen To The Samples, If You Love Em, Then You Need This Album, And Thats all There Is To It.

Effective (good idea)
Good quality arrangements, high quality choir and orchestra, recording! Great session drummer & Bass player. Boy band vocalist not so convincing! However great performance on female soloists' behalf. JENARIUM, new artist from Australia, (rock/metal Electro, Chorale concept album, with the Melbourne.Symphony.Orchestra) release date TBA, will show a more powerful idea which builds upon epicon, for those interested.

Great CD like Unearthed
Very enjoyable CD with some interesting touches such as spanish language tracks. Love the choral voices but would have preferred less of the other singing. Favorites include Preliator, Khayyam, Mines, Away and Sarabande. Highly recommended.

Epic, fantastic release
Excellent release. The vocals are a little 'poppy', but overall the album is great for people who are fans of cinematic scores. Definitely recommended, especially at the CD Baby price.

Great service and good album
Cd Baby has excellent service! I would have given the album five stars had it not been for the rock tracks which were ok, but I wanted more of the choral, trailer type songs. I love Sarabande Suite and Preliator the most. Overall its a good album. I hope they release more choral, trailer type albums.

EPICON is EPIC Rock
EPICON is a beautiful blend of orchestral style music with modern rock music. This unusual, but amazing combination of styles gives the album its distinct sound. The album opens with the track Preliator (my favorite track on this album) with a sound reminiscent of the classic “O Fortuna.” The track then progresses to a battle drum followed by a female soloist singing in Latin. She is then joined by the choir that opened the track, and the track culminates in an EPIC duet between the two. The album moves on to Mighty Rivers Run, a calming piece featuring once again a female soloist and a background choir, however the words are in English this time. Prelude (On Earth as in Heaven) brings the album to its first real rock-sounding piece as the first male soloist and an accompanying choir sing about a man’s undying love for his dead wife. EPICON continues to Spiritus Khayyam which begins in an Indian or Middle-Eastern language (I can’t tell which) and then brings back the EPIC sound that was heard in Preliator. The album then mellows out with a calming Spanish track “La Coronacíon.” The next track, Europa, is another one of my favorites, and is the most rock-sounding track on the album. Diem Ex Dei has a similar sound to Preliator, though with not quite as much choir. Orchard of Mines returns to the distinct EPIC rock sound of the album and is similar to (but better than) Prelude. Crusaders of the Light makes me think “this is what Chariots of Fire would sound like if it were EPIC.” Madre Terra is another beautiful Spanish track and has a sound similar to Josh Groban’s music. Illumination is a “mehh” track that sounds like Mighty Rivers Run, but is not nearly as good. Take Me Away is the final rock sounding track on the album, but will satisfy rock fans just as much as all the other rock-tracks. Sarabande Suite (Aeternae) is the longest track on this album, but easily one of the most beautiful. It begins with a light choir and some beautiful piano music, but quickly progresses to the EPIC sound that was heard in Preliator. This track is always a good request, except when the queue is long. The final track, Porque Te Vas is the most disappointing track on the album; not only does it sound completely unlike anything else on the album with its slow vocal-guitar duet, but it ends the album with a sound completely opposite of how it began. In my opinion, it would have been better to end EPICON with Sarabande Suite. Still, this is a wonderful album as a whole, and has quickly become one of my all-time favorite CDs. I look forward to what Globus will offer us in the future.

Breathtaking!
Wow. That's about the only way to describe this remarkable CD. "Epicon" is a wonderful way for Globus to start off, the orchestration, vocals and overall quality of the CD is astounding. If you're a fan of good music, buy this CD.
