Diablo III: Free Music From Russell Brower and the Eminence Symphony Orchestra

You heard me right. Blizzard has posted the “Diablo III Overture” we mentioned a couple months back at the Worldwide Invitational on iTunes for free. This is quite an unexpected surprise for fans, and is an awesome promotional move if I may say so myself.

Also note the credits here. Our good friends at the Eminence Symphony Orchestra appear to be involved with the recording, although it’s unannounced as to whether they’ll be involved with other tracks from the game. Doesn’t Russell Brower and the Eminence Symphony Orchestra sound like a pretty nifty band name?

So go and get it. It’s got the acclaimed Tristram theme included, although the epic orchestral approach may or may not be your thing. Do I smell a “more ambient music” petition brewing? Do you think it’s good to see a game company finally using music to promote their game?
