Every now and then, I'll come across a piece of video game music that leaves me enthralled. Whenever I come across such delights, I intend to post them here. I don't intend to make a general habit of uploading these videos, but I'll try to update it as often as I can. The phrase "Crowning Music of Awesome" comes from TVTropes.org, for those who frequent that site.
"A Journey Into Darkness" is a brief passage played during Dr. Edwin Lindsey's exploration of the Angkor Thom ruins in Cambodia. As he uncovers a secret passage that leads deep underground, a wall of strings begins to play immense chords. They wobble back and forth, growing more and more dissonant as a choir joins in. As the piece closes, a team of male chanters echoes a brooding series of notes over the rattlings of what sound like ancient Khmer instruments.
