What would a great video game be without its music? It can uplift our spirits, captivate our imaginations, and inspire us to create wonderful works of art. In this Artisan Showcase, we take a look at a musical composition by Vathyr, who was so charmed by the Diablo III and Reaper of Souls™ soundtracks that he forged a melody for Sanctuary all his own.
Vathyr has a passion for music—the piano in particular—and finds inspiration in video games and movies, especially those of the dark heroic fantasy genre. He discovered Diablo at a young age, thanks to his father, but only started developing an interest in the lore with Diablo III. It was with the release of the Book of Cain and his discovery of "I Am Justice" from the Diablo III soundtrack that he found the inspiration to create "A Defeated Evil," an original piece of music that's both haunting and beautiful.
The theme of the track is the defeat of Tathamet, the Prime Evil who is reincarnated in the form of Diablo, threatening the existence of angels and humans alike. Listen to "A Defeated Evil" below, and be sure to check out other original pieces by Vathyr on his official YouTube page.
