Dead Island 10th Anniversary
Giles Lamb


Performed by the Scottish Session Orchestra and Giles Lamb. This is a new recording of the theme for the iconic game trailer which caused a global sensation 10 years ago and still remains one of the best Trailers ever made. The original recording was a mixture of real and virtual instruments - so to get it performed by an orchestra is a dream come true and really fulfils the compositions potential! This recording has been done with a full strings section by the amazing Scottish Session Orchestra Recorded and produced by Clockwork Sessions in Glasgow.
