From hammers crushing skulls to swords hacking limbs, the medieval period was one of the most brutal in history. MEDIEVAL MELEE captures all the clashing of steel and raw, bone-crunching gore in one of our largest-ever collections of sound effects.
All sounds were recorded either in the pristine sound environment of our studios or onsite in the soot and heat of our sourced armourers. Sounds include various impacts, deflects, equips/un-equips, finishers and more.
EXTREMELY RAW The ringing steel and bass-pounding thuds of this collection truly highlight the destructive power of medieval weaponry. With these sounds alone, the full, bloody brutality of combat can truly be felt, if not seen.
FURIOUSLY DETAILED We used our trusted Sennheiser, Sanken CO-100K and Schoeps mics – to capture all the brutal, crushing detail of these cold iron masterpieces.
SAVAGELY CRISP Medieval combat has never sounded more real. We traveled across Europe in search of a massive variety of weapons to slam into wood, steel, and more. We even used analogous materials to recreate the sounds of weaponry but in a much bigger, larger-than-life way.
