Dwarven City

"Dwarven City" is another good offering from Randin Graves, who also contributed "Dark Ritual" to the Sonic Legends line. Take everything you stereotypically think about dwarves—a little harsh, preferring underground or undermountain dwellings, working in forges—and translate that into music. That's what Graves has done for you in this track. The music and sound effects evoke that "dwarven feel" very well. However, the track exhibits a greater volume range than most of the other Sonic Legends soundscapes, making it a little more difficult to use; also, after a while, the instrumentation chosen for the melodic line might start to grate a little. Also, the ID3 tags, which give the name of the track as "Dwarf Mountain," don't match the product description, which calls the track "Dwarven City." Even so, I'm glad to have this soundscape in my collection, and expect to use it later in my current campaign when the PCs visit an underground colony of dwarves.

It begins with low, droning horns, almost the sort of thing you find in a lot of Tibetan music, almost like throat singing. We get some militaristic snare drumming, punctuated with the clanging of anvils. There are long, drawn out strings typical of "sense of wonder" travelogue piece, to evoke the feeling you're travelling over, under and through the mountain. It works, but could use some more variation; once we get into banging anvils, that's the dominant voice of the piece until it quiets down a bit at the end. It works as a gimmick, but the anvils don't work for me as the main theme. I know, they're dwarves, the mine and make stuff, but pounding anvils gets overbearing pretty quickly.
