Many thanks for the link! Now this is what HoMM should sound like! A pity the original of 'Flight of the Griffin' isn't included though, would have loved to have that.
How come they surfaced, did You ask Romero or something?

I wrote him while trying to find this track. Unfortunately, Paul couldn't help me. But he sent me these ones and allowed to share them.

I'm happy they won't be making music for Ubisoft anymore. Ubisoft are incompetent and Heroes VI is a below average game. Maybe Paul Romero and Rob King will make music for other, better games. If not - Paul plays piano and composes since the age of 3. Toured at 11. He's highly competent and I'm excited to hear his work unconstrained by Ubisoft.

Maybe now HOMM fans will wake up. HOMM used to be great games, where each would stand out on its own. It was a combination of excellent graphics, excellent music and sound, and very good gameplay. HOMMVI is mediocre in all of the 3 areas. It gets no attention outside HOMM fanbase (!!). So stick to Heroes I-IV (the 4th is okay for multiplayer) or move on. Try Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic.

lol you guys are funny. The only comments I ever got about the music on the townscreens were very much negative. And once their creators go they are suddenly the angels that made this series? Please. I'm pretty sure other people than those 2 can create good music.

Not to say that their music is bad, btw. Always liked their music. But their leaving isn't dramatic yet. It'll be regrettable if the music turns out bad in the expansion though.

They should recruit Mateo Pascual to do the battle themes.
The guys that did most of the H6 score certainly didn't do anything for me.

If you can settle for music that's merely 'good', then fine. HOMM music (1-4) is not good, it's not great, it's exceptional. Paul Anthony Romero has a passion for music, he started playing at 3, toured at 11 with his own compositions, and today is a successful piano player and composer with multiple awards.

Starcraft 1 music is memorable (and that's coming from someone who doesn't like the game). Starcraft 2 music, by different people, is completely forgettable and inspires no one. Great musicians are few and their work is not easy to imitate.

Ubisoft is on a quest for cutting corners. They hire cheap developers, set stupid deadlines. In all other aspects Heroes V and VI have degenerated, what makes you think they'll make an exception for music ?

The town themes for Heroes VI weren't done by Paul & Rob, but Jason Graves and some other randoms. All you've done is cemented my point. The only tracks that were used of theirs were remixes of old tracks, which is something that Rob told me straight from the horse's mouth, so there is no point in arguing about it.

Yeah. The series has gotten progressively worse since Heroes V, which was actually on a good path with Tribes of the East. The decisions made with the series took a plummet almost immediately after Nival was dropped and Black Hole was brought in to develop Heroes VI. Now there have been two new developers for the series even since then--it's a slippery slope and I think it's too far gone at this point, unless Ubisoft does a complete overhaul. The flip-flopping of developers is more evidence of the lack of stability and irresponsibility with the series. If they had stuck with Nival, they would have a team of developers with a history of developing for the series, now it's just being handed to some random-ass, no-name French developer with no credibility that makes card games for iPhone to spearhead the development of an iconic franchise. Screw that, man.

The producers at Ubisoft with creative control are made out to be true fans of the series who know what fans want, which I think is probably true, but odds are that now that they have control of the series they've lost their way and feel their obligation is to put food on the table instead of crafting a truly faithful Heroes experience, which is a shame.

Heroes VI in the lowermost list in the left, then the third folder from top to bottom on the left, then the green arrow on both available downloads.

Unsurprisingly, the themes from this link are much better than what we have in-game.

I really doubt it is the case that anyone in Ubisoft is a true fan who knows all the games in the Might and Magic legacy let alone understand them. Marzhin maybe but I think he is the level designer not the producer. Producers are just totally clueless, I doubt they even played all the Heroes games. I mean Erwin is like an even worse version of Toriyama to Final Fantasy and Ashan is his Lightning, clearly cares only about imposing his Ashan brain fart no matter if it actually does damage short term to the game and long term to the franchise.

We were barely in H6. All the music in that game was re-recorded and re-written from the original music we actually turned in. It was pretty much remixes of the originals. I wanted to go in a different direction, something different and edgy. Im all "Latin choired out" lol. Heroes 1-4 I was the audio director and sole decision maker in the creative audio department. That is not my role any longer so I don't make those decisions. We wish Heroes the best! It was a cool 17yr run and the fans have always been very kind to Paul and myself. Cheers

The original Necropolis Theme by Romero is much better than its remake. Can't say the same about Sanctuary, the new arrangement is really closer to the Eastern cultures.
