 HD DVD Review: Backdraft | High-Def Digest
Universal actually released 'Backdraft' once before in high-def, on the short-lived D-VHS format (remember that?) So while this new HD DVD transfer is actually a bit old, or at least minted from an older master, I certainly couldn't tell.
'Backdraft' benefits greatly from aggressive sound design, which is all the more impressive as the film is now fifteen years old.
Unfortunately, despite the interminable length (which could have easily turned 'Backdraft' into a TV miniseries), there is no text or video/audio to help explain the excised material or its context.

 Filmtracks: Backdraft (Hans Zimmer)
In fact, to create the kind of dominance (or prominence) of the snare, I would guess that there were multiple (3 or 4) drums involved, and/or a heavy-handed mixing of them in the final product.
Between the snare drums, the chorus, and Zimmer's strong themes, the Backdraft score is exactly what Zimmer wanted it to be: an ode to firemen.
Zimmer's favorite cue accompanies the funeral procession at the end of the film, and it is an emotionally charged and elegant piece with bold brass, percussion, and choir together.
