Title - 'Hercules' (Sony Classical)
Artist - Fernando Velazquez

Having been composed by World Soundtrack Award nominee Fernando Velazquez, 'Hercules' is an incredible musical soundtrack to the huge Hollywood movie of the same name.

'Hercules' stars Dwayne Johnson as both man and myth, leading a band of mercenaries to help end a bloody civil war in the land of Thrace and return he rightful king to his throne.

Released on Sony Classical records, Velazquez's 'Hercules' traces the strength and nobility of the main character throughout the movie. Recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, his musical beats capture the kindness along with the great strength of Hercules just perfectly.

Velazquez, a Spanish-born orchestral music, television and film composer - 'Mama,' 'The Impossible,' 'Backwoods,' etc. - as well as an accomplished cello player who was once himself in various orchestras, has ensured that tracks like 'Arrival At Lord Cotys' City,' 'Athens,' 'The Battle' and amongst others both 'Cotys Brings Out Arius' and 'The Statue Falls' still manage to sound modern, updated, strong and never weak of musical emphasis.

Incorporating electronics and all kinds of modern drums into such other tracks as 'Pirate's Camp,' 'Bessi-Battle' and 'Centaurs,' is just further proof that Velazquez knows how to create the perfect score. The stirrings, the broad strokes are just that, but they evoke just the right amount of combat and excitement within them. In a way that helps each track, each scene they back to rise perfectly to their collective cinematic occasion.
