Video game developers Capcom and Ninja Theory have confirmed today that both Noisia and Combichrist are the composers for DmC: Devil May Cry, the upcoming hack n’ slash action/adventure game for Xbox 360 and PS3. There will also be licensed Combichrist songs within the game. A sample of the soundtrack can be heard below (you can download it for free here).
Noisia states, “It’s been an awesome experience working with Ninja Theory on the game. We had great freedom but were also bound by certain criteria typical in the game world. These are challenging boundaries (for example; consistency in sonics over 180 minutes of music) but also lots of space in terms of dynamics & progression and instrumentation being able to create soundscapes without having to worry about holding the attention of a dancefloor. Their music director was great to work with, good vibes. It’s great when you get to play to your strengths. Also, the game kicks ass!”
Combichrist lead singer Andy LaPlegua adds, “As an avid gamer myself I was honored to be asked to work on this project. I had a lot of fun digging myself into Dante’s psyche in order to create music to match the battle scenes and am equally as excited to license existing Combichrist music. I’m looking forward playing the finished game when it comes out.“
