Trogen is best remembered for his ever popular
Tomb Raider-inspired musical compositions. The
Swedish composer has just returned from a two-year
hiatus with a brand
new composition and a previously unreleased
track. Marcus also sent over this update on his
current endevours, including his new project Faithful
Raider is the first new Tomb
Raider song in some time and contains musical
elements from the original Tomb Raider, Tomb
Raider III, Tomb
Raider Legend, The
Last Revelation, and Tomb
Raider Anniversary. It could be considered
a sort of Tomb Raider theme anthology since it
has elements from all three Tomb Raider composers
(Nathan McCree, Peter Conelly, and Troels Folmann).

Croft can be heard featuring the voices of
all those who have portrayed Lara in the games.

from all of the Crofts. Obviously, the whole "Anniversary"
concept was in the back of my head during the
pondered on a suitable song title that would fit
a composition of this character and after some
dialogue with people on the outside, the song
title "The Raider" was finally decided, referring
to Lara Croft having survived numerous dangers
throughout all of the games. I had a lot of fun
creating it and I hope that listeners out there
will enjoy the tune.
side of this, I have also been working on a musical
project for the last couple of months which is
now in the process of being launched. This project
is an attempt to stand on my own two feet, and
three music tracks finished and many more ideas
in the pipeline.
my name was more or less connected to the Tomb
Raider community, I wanted to distance my fan-based
work from my original work. My family name "Trogen",
being the Swedish word for "faithful", was basis
for the project being called "Faithful Vibes"
and my web site is currently located www.faithfulvibes.com.
project relies heavily on donations from music
fans and a
special campaign page has been created to
support this. By creating a campaign I want to
make the listener feel they're an active part
of the project.
been absent from the music scene for quite some
time, it feels exciting to be back, and this time
- with the help of the online community - I aim
to stay with full energy focused on the music.
So, spread the word... all support is welcome."
