Two Steps From Hell，主创人员是 Thomas Bergersen（托马斯·伯格森）和Nick Phoenix（尼克·菲尼克斯）。托马斯的音乐刚柔并济，特别擅长柔中带刚，Female Vocal是托马斯的招牌，他的个人Solo专辑Nemesis无与伦比、震撼人心！
关于Two Steps From Hell的中文译名，国内网络上有“两步逃离地狱”、“逃出生天”、“逃陷地狱”、“地狱边缘”、“地狱咫尺”等诸多译名，但官方没有正式给出中文译名，在此不做统一。

Two Steps from Hell was founded in 2006 when Thomas Bergersen and Nick Phoenix joined forces to write original music for movie trailers. Bergersen moved from Trondheim, Norway to the United States in 2003, along with Phoenix, who began composing in 1997, before moving to Los Angeles. The two formed the company in early 2006, and have composed music for over 1,000 major motion picture trailers.
Two Steps from Hell mainly produces trailer music and Epic Music, although recently it has also been used for television shows and video games.
Despite the company finding success for its music, the tracks were never officially released to the public until the May 2010 release of the commercial album Invincible. In addition to approaching Gold record status, Invincible became the first of several such albums to chart in the iTunes Top 100 Soundtracks.As of July 2014, Two Steps from Hell has published 8 public albums in addition to 20 demonstration albums, with almost 1,000 unique tracks in total.
The album, Sun, which was released on September 30, 2014, is the second solo album from Thomas Bergersen. Preview tracks were released from the album, titled Cry and Sun, the former of which can be downloaded from Bergersen's official website.An official music video for "Sun" was also released on YouTube,preceding the announcement of a signed limited deluxe edition CD release set to include additional tracks and notes from Thomas, as well as a large-size poster featuring his artwork.
Additionally, in July 2014 Two Steps from Hell released an e-book known as Colin Frake on Fire Mountain, which features a 75,000-word novel written by Nick Phoenix with illustrations by Otto Bjornik, as well as an original score also made available via a soundtrack release.
Two Steps from Hell's main graphic artist is Steven Gilmore,who has created album covers for almost every promotional and public release, including the logo of the company, with the only exception being the 2009 DVD release of their library, for which the album cover was created by Paul Zeaiter. Additionally, Thomas Bergersen's Illusions solo album features design by Jesper Krijgsman,while its sequel, Sun, features artwork created by Thomas himself.
