My attempt at mixing & re-mastering the first Orc theme from the first Warcraft 1 game (The one that came out in 1994). The first theme (of the three) has always been my favourite of the bunch.

I focused a lot on keeping the instruments sounding tight, so they would cut off in a sharp and organized manner as it plays, rather than something soft, which I think would feel out of place. I think it goes well with this style of music, given the war-like attitude of the race it plays for. The attempt was made to give it more of the feeling that was presented in the CD version of the music. I hope I pulled it off well enough.

I, personally, have not played the Warcraft games, but I have to say, this theme captures the Orcs well. From what I have seen other games and such depict them, this is definitely fit for them.

Thank you very much! Warcraft 1 and 2 Orcs were supposed to be pure evil, the anti-thesis to the Humans. I think the music for Warcraft 2 was a little comic-y, if you follow what I mean, but the music for the Warcraft 1 Orcs was better suited to what they really were.
