Information Edit

Classics Volume One, released in 2013, was the fifth public album released by Two Steps From Hell and the twenty-second overall. The version released to the general public featured 21 "classic" songs from Dynasty, Nemesis, Dreams & Imaginations, Legend, The Devil Wears Nada, Power of Darkness, Nero, Two Steps From Heaven and the extended version of SkyWorld. (Notably, two had already been released on Demon's Dance.) Somewhat ironically, two brand-new songs composed by Nick Phoenix were also featured. A sequel album was later released two years later.

There are a few interesting notes about this album. First off, there are two separate slightly different versions of this album that one can purchase. The one available on Amazon features Clash of Empires from Nemesis, whereas the one available on iTunes and CDBaby replace this track with Strength of an Empire from Two Steps From Heaven. Additionally, the version available on Extreme Music has yet another new song entitled The Darkness Unveils, also by Nick Phoenix.
