Here is the final batch of 2023 trailer music releases! December being a major holiday month, trailer music production slowed down substantially, but you'll still find 36 brand new albums in this post. And 3 of them are by trailer music companies I never mentioned on Trailer Music Hub before! The first among them is Epic Soul Factory, launched by Cesc Vilà and Fran Soto all the way back in 2011. December saw the release of Alpha, Epic Soul Factory's first album since Sigma, their successful 2015 release. Next introduction goes to Synapse Trailer Music, which has been around only since 2018, but already boasts a catalog of over 100 albums. The Blue Devil, along with the sound design release Dr. Tick Toxic 2, were Synapse Trailer Music's last releases of 2023. And finally, let me introduce Omniscore, an exciting new collaborative project of Antti Martikainen, with the first release from December – Crimson Saga – being a stellar collaboration with Ian Fontova. Hope you enjoy the new music as much as I did!
Get ready for a year-end trailer music galore! In November I discovered 52 new releases, which is the most in a single month this year and, in fact, the most I've ever mentioned in a post on Trailer Music Hub. And not only that, I also have 4 introductions of first-timers on my blog to make! The first label whose catalog I only listened to recently and which released a new album in November is Amplitude, a trailer music label of Adrenalin Production Music Libraries. Amplitude released the first 3 albums back in 2017, and the number has grown to 34 since then. Next, I checked out OneMusic, a production music company founded in the late 90s and acquired by Universal Production Music in 2007, boasting hundreds of albums produced over the two and half decades of its existence. OneMusic's albums are typically made publicly available not long after their initial release to the industry.
There are 44 new trailer music albums, released in October, waiting for you below to be explored! They come in all flavors, ranging from action to fantasy, and with October being the Halloween month, there is a noticeable increase in horror music releases. But worry not, you'll also find cheerful Celtic and winter holiday-themed ones in the mix! Looking at the post cover, it actually represents the variety of genres remarkably well! As for new introductions, I have two this month. More than 5 years after his last release, the Portuguese composer BrunuhVille released Atlas, his 11th album (not counting compilation albums and EPs), featuring the amazing Julie Elven on vocals on one of the tracks. The album is a compilation of various singles BrunuhVille had released since 2018. Next, the UK-based Hungarian composer Thomas-Adam Habuda put out an album of both new and old, unreleased and experimental compositions. Featuring 27 tracks, Space Works will entertain you for a good hour and a half! Tom has composed music for Audiomachine in the past, among other trailer music companies, and Space Works is his 3rd solo album, with the first two released all the way back in 2011 and 2014. Now, I will finally let you go and explore the music. Enjoy!
With composers – and all the other music production folks – presumably getting back from vacation, we're back in the 40s this month (in terms of the new trailer music album count)! 41 new releases, to be precise. I won't be introducing anyone new today, but with the bonus introduction posts over the past couple of months, I hope I've earned a break of one or two months in this respect. :) Let me mention though that Non-Stop Premiere has released their first album (or rather an EP) since April 2021, so it's good to know that this library is not deprecated, despite its description on the Non-Stop Trailers website saying "legacy catalog". Sergey Cheremisinov also didn't release any new albums after 2021, which, with one album and three EPs, had been one of his most productive years.
In this bonus August post, I introduce Industry Music, a Los Angeles-based trailer music company/label established at the end of 2022. They have released 14 trailer music albums since then, along with three sound design and several indie artists albums. But I will, of course, focus on the trailer music ones here, only skipping a few that I didn't find particularly cinematic or that were mostly sound design/horror albums. The current composer roster of Industry Music consists of big names on the trailer music scene, such as Mike Rubino, Gabriel Brosteanu, Mattia Turzo, Jochen Flach, Joep Sporck, René Osmanczyk and Ros Stephen, so you definitely have great music to look forward to!
It seems like it took a month for the effect of the vacation season to kick in. In August, I only discovered 35 new trailer music releases, which is quite a drop from the 45-50 you have gotten used to over the past several months. Despite that, I have one introduction to make! Frontier Trailer Music, based in Los Angeles, launched in early 2018, having released 8 albums that year alone. Published and distributed by 5 Alarm Music, their catalog is now 38 albums strong, with the newest addition from August itself, which is the first release of theirs that I write about on my blog. You can follow Frontier Trailer Music on Facebook, Instagram and X for updates on trailer placements and upcoming releases.
As promised, here is a bonus July post introducing a new trailer music library created this very month: The Lorne Balfe Collection. It is available exclusively from Audio Network, a British production music company founded all the way back in 2001. As the name suggests, this library is a product of Audio Network's partnership with Lorne Balfe (and a team of his composers), the veteran Scottish composer who was once Hans Zimmer's protégé, and whom many of you will know from the scores for some of the earlier Assassin's Creed video games, as well as a couple of entries in the Call of Duty series, and then movies, such as 13 Hours (2016) and Ghost in the Shell (2017), or more recently, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) and the upcoming Gran Turismo (2023).
Entering the vacation season hasn't changed anything about the rate of trailer music coming out this month, so there are 48 albums waiting for you to be explored below! After last month's four introductions of newcomers to my blog, I only have one for the month of July, despite the number of new releases in this post. The Spanish composer José Manuel González Núñez has been composing cinematic music under the name "Sounds of Neptune" for almost a decade now. After two solo piano albums earlier this year, he now releases a 3-track EP of reflective cinematic music that I encourage you to check out. And actually, there is a second introduction I should make too: The Lorne Balfe Collection, a brand new Audio Network trailer music library (or "collection", as Audio Network calls it). However, since this library didn't just release one debut album, but six of them, I thought I should write a separate short post on it. So stay tuned!
Welcome to the 30th monthly post on my trailer music blog! You'll find in it a list of 44 new releases, but first I have four introductions of newcomers to the blog to make. Andreas Kübler is a German composer, probably best known as the former creative director and lead composer at IMAscore, but making music for other trailer music companies too, including Colossal Trailer Music and Glory Oath + Blood. In June he released his second solo EP, after a debut EP in 2020 that had come out just shortly before I started this blog. Next, Instrumental Core (the alias of Piotr Adamski) adds the sixth album to his collection, the last one before that also having been released just a month before the inception of my blog. Instrumental Core, however, entered the trailer music scene with his debut "dubchestral" release already back in 2012, after which he started closely collaborating with Really Slow Motion on his subsequent albums. The viking composers of Epic North – a Finnish trailer music company that also collaborated with Really Slow Motion in the past – are back from their Fimbulvinter slumber that lasted not the proverbial three, but five, consecutive winters. Just in time to celebrate the company's 10th anniversary with a new epic album! And finally, Immediate Music has released their first public album since 2020. Founded all the way back in 1993 by Jeffrey Fayman and Yoav Goren, Immediate Music is a veteran in trailer music, however, until recently, there seemed to be no new music produced by the company after 2020. That seems to be changing now though, as I've noticed albums from the past three years being retroactively added on the BMG Production Music website linked above. So, there might be more "new" Immediate Music music (uh, that sounds awkward) to look forward to in the near future! Phew, this was probably the longest intro paragraph I've written in a post... but don't get used to it! Go ahead and enjoy the new music now!
Exciting news: there are exactly 50 new trailer music releases waiting for you in this post! That makes May the second most fruitful month of this year so far. But, before you start scrolling down and listening to this bounty of new music, let me briefly introduce Maximum Impact, one of Audio Network's libraries, created in 2017. The library boasts 13 albums composed by the likes of Mark Petrie, Erick DeVore and Harry Lightfoot, with the most recent one released just this May. Most of their albums are available on streaming platforms, so check them out if you have any spare time remaining after listening to the 50 albums below. Enjoy!
This April's post features 45 new releases, spanning the entire spectrum of trailer music genres, from epic/hybrid action, to inspiring/reflective/emotive drama, to fantasy adventure, with some albums offering a fusion of cinematic music with synthwave, Nordic neofolk or world music. This time around I only have Florian Bur to introduce, a Swiss pianist and composer, who previously also produced cinematic music under the pseudonym Tunes of Fantasy. He released his first couple of albums back in 2013, but his newest release, I'm a Dreamer, comes after a 4-and-a-half-year hiatus. Glad to see you back, Florian! That's it for the intro, have fun exploring new music!
Get ready for 49 brand new trailer music albums from the month of March! This year so far has been incredibly productive on the trailer music front, so much so that I have a hard time keeping up with all the new music, and have only had little time to explore new labels and catalogs. I still have three new introductions to make! Giant Apes Music, a label published by Really Slow Motion since 2014, released the first public album – an almost 90-minute compilation of tracks from several of their previous industry albums. Similarly to RSM, Giant Apes Music albums unfortunately don't get released to the public, not even years after being released to the industry, so this is the best we can hope for, I suppose. Next, Scorched Score is one of those labels that only produces albums sporadically, and this time they released three albums at once (first new music since 2020). Scorched Score, established in 2011, is a label under the UK-based Deep East Music, which was acquired by BMG Production Music a few years ago. Finally, I found a new release from Tenth Dimension, a Sencit Music catalog with its first album dating back to 2009. Go ahead and immerse yourself in epic and cinematic music!
January had set the bar high in terms of the amount of new music, and February certainly didn't disappoint, allowing me to present a selection of 46 new trailer music albums for you in this post. You'll again find a few newcomers to my trailer music blog. Introducing Artem Yegorov, yet another Ukrainian composer, who released his 5th cinematic music album after more than 4 years. Next, End of Silence, a label originally published by Really Slow Motion, then acquired by Dos Brains a couple of years ago and added to their catalog of several labels (alongside Silver Screen, Rogue Souls, Third Rail, and others). Unfortunately for us fans, most releases from the Dos Brains labels are industry-only and not even available for preview unless you're a client, and only tend to become available to the public about 3 years after their release. The most recent End of Silence album is, however, a collaboration with IMAscore and the album was released straight to the public, yay! And finally, I introduce a new album by Endgame, an APM Music library aimed at the video game industry. Enjoy all the new music!
Welcome to the first post of 2023! It sure looks like trailer music companies had delayed much of their music publication in December until after New Year, as I found 51 new trailer music releases this January! This is by far the most I have ever reported in a single post, and it took me quite a bit of time to go through all of them (and many other not-quite-trailer-music albums that didn't make it into this post) and to write up this post. Despite the greater-than-ever number of releases, I only have one new introduction to my blog this time. Olexandr Ignatov, a Ukrainian pianist and composer, released Motherland, an album dedicated to his home country in the light of the events of the past 12 months, and the first album with epic music since his two 2018 releases, Piano Scenes and Forgotten Reality. And, although not entirely new to my blog, let me also highlight Q-Factory, Soundcritters, and Tybercore this month, all of whom had not released any new music since early 2021, when I was just starting to write this trailer music news blog. Okay, I won't take any more of your time, as you have more than 50 albums to explore! Have fun!
It doesn't come as a surprise that in December music production slows down drastically, thanks to the holiday season. I still managed to find 29 new trailer music albums released in this last month of 2022 though! Among them is one new release each from Iván Torrent and Mattia Turzo, neither of which is an entirely new name on my blog, as they compose music for various trailer music companies. Iván Torrent has previously composed music for Audiomachine and Really Slow Motion, among others, and Onyria is his third solo album that came out almost exactly 5 years after his previous solo release. Mattia Turzo, on the other hand, has released several solo albums under Tony Tobolt Records and contributed music to the catalogs of Colossal Trailer Music, Glory Oath + Blood, and several others, including Position Music which released his most recent solo album, Prateria. Enjoy this last collection of new trailer music from 2022!
