Vikings is a Canadian-Irish historical drama television series, written and created by Michael Hirst. Filmed in Ireland, Vikings is inspired by the tales about the Viking Ragnar Lodbrok, one of the best-known mythological Norse heroes and notorious as the scourge of France and England. It portrays Ragnar as a Viking farmer who pioneers the first daring raids into England with the support of fellow warriors, his brother Rollo, and his wife, the shieldmaiden Lagertha.

At its heart, Vikings remains a family saga, following the fortunes of Ragnar, his extended family and the people he represents now that he is an earl. Ragnar's own desire to sail west, to explore new kingdoms, in alliance with King Horik, leads to a storm-tossed landing on the coast of Wessex, an important Saxon kingdom ruled by a king not unlike Ragnar. Season 2 is all about crises: of faith, of power and of relationships. Kingdoms are at stake. Lives are at stake. Love is at stake. And all under the watchful eyes of the gods.

The soundtrack for Vikings II features selections from the original music of the second season of the series composed by award winning Canadian composer Trevor Morris, best know for his work on scores of The Tudors, The Borgias and  Immortals. Morris' score elevates the action and emotion experienced throughout the series. His music is at times dark and brooding to reflect the mystery and danger of the Viking world. Often, it's full of thunderous percussion and brass for scenes of conflict; while it's sensitive and touching to illustrate romance.
