The Barbarian Edition is a very nice addition to one’s digital library. I have enjoyed the two soundtracks quite a lot, plus I wear the t-shirt too.
The orchestral version on the web from 2008 is actually pretty interesting, but can be jarring to people fully enmeshed in the CE version. I won’t nerd out on the musicality of Mr Haugen, but the solo seems to almost “corrupt” a woodwind into something serpentine and unexpected. It’s almost a genre bender in itself.
The guitar-lead version from Conan Exiles is actually why I return to certain areas to build a permanent home! Glad you like it too.
