Ares AKA Mars

Ares – The Greek God of war. A scary being. Listen to what he inspires…

This is the most terrifying music I own.

“Mars – The Bringer Of War,” is the second movement of the orchestral suite, The Planets. It was written in England by Gustav Holst between 1914 and 1916. Bernard Hermann can thank Gustav for many of his most famous motifs. This version is the acknowledged contemporary standard – The Chicago Symphony Orchestra directed by the great James Levine. I suggest lights out, volume up, helmets on and mind wide open.
