The Fighter Pilot Podcast - 2019 February - Helicopters

by Rantam



This song is a metal cover of the famous Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries", which is part of the second opera of the "Der Ring des Nibelungen". The fade in and fade out sections are original though.

Story behind is: there were plans to feature helicopters in the Aircraft Series of The Fighter Pilot Podcast, so we needed a song which could be linked to them easily.

It didn't take me too long to remember the famous movie "Apocalypse Now", where the original song was played through loudspeakers mounted on US helicopters while they attacked a North Vietnamese village.

Again, I didn't have a lot of time to record and mix this one, but It worked OK for the episode. Hope you like it.
