Banner Saga 1 (Original Soundtrack) by Austin Wintory
Distributed Title: We were blown away by Stoic's The Banner Saga when it first launched in 2014! It’s an epic role-playing game inspired by Viking legend that brings skillfully crafted art, story and strategy to a genre all but forgotten.
Much of the epic adventure is conveyed not only through visuals, but also the game’s powerful music. Composer Austin Wintory has masterfully created some of our favorite game soundtracks ever, including the Grammy-nominated score to Journey (a first for any soundtrack album, to be sure) - and Banner Saga follows suit.He held nothing back when crafting the score for The Banner Saga - its beautiful and haunting - and we’re so pleased to be minting it on gorgeous 180-gram vinyl for the very first time!
Think the cover art looks familiar? That’s because Banner Saga’s own art director, Arnie Jorgenson, designed this original piece specifically for the vinyl.
