If you were disappointed by the absence of new music in Lord of the Rings On line's last couple of expansions, then today is a good opportunity to break out the headphones in celebration. Composer Chance Thomas has announced that Turbine contracted him to create an "all-original orchestral, choral and acoustic ensemble score" for this fall's Riders of Roan. It's not just Lotto audiophiles who have cause to rejoice, either: Thomas is also on board with creating the music for Dungeons and Dragons On line's first expansion Menace of the under dark. Thomas' career in video game music dates back to the late '90s with Quest for Glory V. LOTRO Gold players know him best as one of the composers for both Shadows of Ingmar and Mines of Maria. Menace of the under dark will release June 25th, while Riders of Roan is scheduled for sometime this fall.
