Conan the Barbarian (2011) Movie Suite

Conan the Barabrian 2011 Suite
Music by Tyler Bates

Certainly, this recent re-make cannot be accused of being anything other than an action adventure yarn, so when Mr. Bates penned the music he stayed to the tried and true formula. Plenty of percussion, plenty of brass and a spattering of choral voices along with a little synthesizer for some good measure. Shake it up (or stir) and we're left with this movie suite, our first from Mr. Bates, who is known for his scores to: 300 and Watchmen, among many others. This music really grows on you. Of course you have to give some measure of leeway, although it helps to have seen the movie to associate what it is about. With a timing of 24:02, I think you'll enjoy.  -MJ
