Keepers of the Gate $2.99

Having no familiarity at all with the FantasyCraft adventure this music was composed to accompany, I don’t know who the keepers are, or what access their gate controls. But I do know that this track does two very distinct things, musically. For a little less than the first half of the track, it’s as if you’re watching a tribal shaman of some sort lead a ritual, perhaps a summoning or warding ritual; in the back half of the track, the summoned creature has come through or is trying to come through, and combat has ensued. The chants and screams are very evocative, but the dramatic changes in mood and intensity around 4:15 and 6:45 or so compromise the track’s effectiveness for looping under an RPG battle scene. The track is well-composed and well-executed, but seems more appropriate to pre-scripted action and dialogue than to the free flow of the gaming table—and since this isn’t the sort of thing you’d want to listen to on repeat while doing work, chores, or D&D prep, that’s a big drawback. (Oh, and the ID3 tags need work.)
