Bad Here Day


Spirit of Fire is the first track in Halo Wars: Original Soundtrack.


Spirit of Fire was produced by different music organizations in three different cities, including Dallas, Prague, and Seattle.[1]

It starts with a very moody piano solo of the Spirit of Fire leitmotif, with atmospheric electronic backing, followed by percussions, strings, bells and a choir joining. After the first climax, the piece segués into vocals singing the Gregorian chant from the Halo Theme, with added piano, percussive and electronic elements. This reaches a crescendo, after which the piece ends with a continuation of the background instruments and sounds, which slowly fade out.

The Spirit of Fire leitmotif would be incorporated into other tracks:

The leitmotif returns in Halo Wars 2: Original Soundtrack, incorporated into the track Recommissioned.


The full track plays in the main menu of Halo Wars and in the ending of the Halo Legends episode Homecoming.
