Knights Prepare for Battle – new Epic Medieval Battle Scene Music by Ricky Molina

Knights Prepare for Battle is a cinematic epic piece written for a battle scene. The knights are preparing for battle, and they engage in fierce fighting. The music ends with a climactic tutti, as the action scene ends. It is written in a minor key, but has a lydian tonal sound, especially at the beginning. There are storm and snare drums but they are not overdone. Horns, winds and string sections also help build the tension in the second half of the piece. The rhythmic pace of the piece is set by pizzicato double bass and viola parts, with percussive interjections made by timpanic storm drums, woodblocks, tambourine, triangle, ratchet effects and harp for the build-up to the battle scene.
