BOOM Library Medieval Melee Construction Kit

Feel the bloody brutality of Medieval combat.  From hammers crushing skulls to swords hacking limbs, the medieval period was one of the most brutal in history. BOOM Library MEDIEVAL MELEE captures all the clashing of steel and raw, bone-crunching gore in one of their largest-ever collections of sound effects.

All sounds were recorded either in the pristine sound environment of our studios or onsite in the soot and heat of our sourced armourers. Sounds include various impacts, deflects, equips/un-equips, finishers and more.

The ringing steel and bass-pounding thuds of this collection truly highlight the destructive power of medieval weaponry. With these sounds alone, the full, bloody brutality of combat can truly be felt, if not seen.


We used our trusted Sennheiser, Sanken CO-100K and Schoeps mics – to capture all the brutal, crushing detail of these cold iron masterpieces.


Medieval combat has never sounded more real. We traveled across Europe in search of a massive variety of weapons to slam into wood, steel, and more. We even used analogous materials to recreate the sounds of weaponry but in a much bigger, larger-than-life way.

Designed, Construction Kit, Bundle – What’s The Difference?


A CONSTRUCTION KIT generally contains thousands of sounds as raw as possible and only as processed as needed for a specific topic, perfectly organized to make it easy for you to use them. Carefully selected, those sounds give you all the freedom and possibilities you need to design your own sounds within the given topic from scratch. For some topics it is difficult to provide recordings only, so you will find some pre-processed or synthesizer based sounds in those collections as well, but still only basic material, since we don’t want to offer it compressed to the maximum or similarly mutated. After all, the CONSTRUCTION KIT serves as such for ourselves, namely in the following process of creating the respective DESIGNED collection.


The DESIGNED collections feature fully designed sounds which originate from the CONSTRUCTION KIT stock. The sounds are of a specific topic and ready to use: mixed, processed, compressed, mastered etc. They can be easily put into all kind of projects, for example trailers, commercials, movies, TV shows and so forth or used as in-game sounds. This collection provides a quick and easy workflow and you can still use those sounds as a basic and layer, stretch or otherwise adjust them to suit your specific needs.


The bundle is the best option as it contains both, the DESIGNED and the CONSTRUCTION KIT at a reduced price.

What we recorded

We searched across Europe for the best armourers we could find. When that epic journey ended, we even dug through scrapyards and archeological sites. All this to capture as realistically as possible the sounds of medieval close-quarters combat. Ranged weapons were not included, only the raw brutality of hand-held steel and iron.

For each weapon category, we recorded a variety of sounds, including whooshes, deflects, equips/unequips, finishers, impacts, impacts, and more.
