Musical styleEdit

Globus' musical style range from orchestral arrangements to symphonic rock with elements of world music and symphonic metal. Some of their compositions have been used as trailer music, such as Preliator, which was featured in the trailers for Spider-Man 2[4][5] and The Dukes of Hazzard as well as the "Epic" promo for PlayStation Move. A portion of their Epicon "Preliator" track was used for the final sinking of the Japanese warship "Yamato" feature (2005).
