It’s big and bombastic from the word “go” in this dramatic, orchestral action/adventure track. The whole string section is sawing away nearly the whole time, from the double basses all the way up to the violins. French horns and trombones play the melody at first, with the strings and winds in countermelody, and then they switch roles, giving the music direction and momentum. Along with the driving nature of the horns and high strings, a syncopation is built into the bass line (double basses and cellos) which provides accents that, along with some epic drum sounds, might just make your pulse quicken a bit! “The Conquering Hero” is not for the faint of heart!
