  • It's me, Kevin. :D I thought I'd give a little more frame of reference behind my comments on the "traditional Jeremy Soule" horns. I think what I was trying to communicate may have been more the way that Soule uses horns. They're soaring and have a tendency to be a centerpiece of his more driven pieces. Some other good examples: Overture from Eye of the North (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejafLR6jb0g) Serpent Riders (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EESTHLq2BA) And since there was some questions about me, I don't really blog (blog.kevinbrill.com is a placeholder really), but you can follow me on twitter @kevinbrill. Thanks for featuring my submission and keep up the good work!
