Plus, developer Gaia Interactive’s Monster Galaxy soundtrack hits the top 20 on iTunes and renowned composer Howard Shore releases a second volume of his Soul of the Ultimate Nation soundtrack.
This week was nuts with new game music announcements, and I’m going to try to wrap all of them up for you. There’s a lot to get through, so let’s do this:
Bear McCreary scores shooter Moon Breakers: The Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead composer lent his talents to the free-to-play space shooter from developer Imba Entertainment. You can actually grab the Moon Breakers EP on iTunes now.
You guys really like the Monster Galaxy soundtrack: The 26-track album from composer Jeremy Soule climed the iTunes charts this week. Could it be because publisher Artistry Entertainment is practically giving it away for $0.99?
Lord of the Rings conductor Howard Shore releases Soul of the Ultimate Nation Vol. 2 on July 10th: Shore provided the music for this Japanese online fantasy game and now the music is making its way to the United States. It’ll be available in stores and digitally on July 10th from Howe Records.
You can check out samples of the score from the 20-track album on their site.
Going to Comic-Con? So is “The Legend of Zelda™: Symphony of the Goddesses” Tour: The tour will be heading to San Diego during the convention, playing music across the Zelda franchise on July 12th at 8:00 PM at the Embarcadero Marina South. You can find out more including ticket information on the tour’s official site.
Gearbox brings back Jesper Kyd, Cris Velasco and Sascha Dikiciyan for the Borderlands 2 Soundtrack: That’s according to an announcement from the developer that reveals the trio as behind the music for he upcoming shooter RPG. Kyd will also be providing the score for an upcoming series based on Euro sci-fi coming Heavy Metal.
Devil music: Artists Noisia and Combichrist compose Devil May Cry reboot: Dubstep comes to DmC, which I always thought would have more of a punk or metal thing going for it but Capcom and developer Ninja Theory have gone the dubstep wub wub wub route. Capcom passed along a download link if you’d like to sample one of Noisia’s tracks from the game and it’s not bad at all (requires Facebook account).
