That’s why I was immediately hooked when I came across Two Steps From Hell, a music production company that specializes in composing music for film trailers. Man, talk about some intense music. Listening to this stuff makes me want to go out and storm a castle:
Okay… so maybe it’s not the most effective music to listen to while working. But hey, it sure makes me feel like a badass while I’m staring at my display and typing away at my keyboard….
