'Leitmotif' is a word I wish was used more often.

Leitmotifs are my favourite musical convention, especially when used in media like games, movies or shows. You know a song has great power when it becomes synonymous with a character, an emotion or even an entire franchise. Think Darth Vader with the Imperial March, or the main Star Wars theme.I got shivers hearing the "Arthas, My Son" leitmotif in this song. It convinces me that this'll be the song that plays during the epic finish, perhaps when Arthas takes his dying breath. It's so sad and moving that it's making me wonder whether Arthas feels the last tinge of humanity in his heart as he dies.Regardless, this song would be an amazing piece to see off one of Warcraft's most influencial characters.

"An Karanir Thanagor, Mor Ok Angalor. Mor Ok Gorum Palahm Raval" (which according to WoWWiki is the recurring leitmotif in the song) sounds slightly orcish. Perhaps it is the lament of a lost part of Ner'zhul. And maybe Matthias Lehner is doing the singing, he probably has a nicer voice.Also, if it weren't for the complete lack of apostrophes, I'd say that also looked a little like the Nerubians' language.
