‘Hotline Miami 2’ OST Takes Samples From ‘Silent Hill’

If you haven’t heard of the Hotline Miami series, you’re missing out. Styled after 1980’s gangster/action films, the top-down game is viciously brutal, outrageously violent, and also features some incredible music! On the latest game, you’ve got artists such as Carpenter Brut, Perturbator, Mega Drive, Jasper Byrne, and a hell of a lot more. But one of the tracks has a nifty little sample in it.

It turns out that El Huervo‘s track “Ghost” uses samples from “Tears Of…”, which appeared on the Silent Hill 1 soundtrack. You can hear both tracks below to compare and contrast, although it’s pretty much near impossible to miss the relation.

    It works well! I’m the sort who sucks bad at games like Hotline Miami, so unfortunately despite enjoying the games even whilst sucking, I haven’t taken much in full-game wise. Hopefully credit for sample was given and all that! Is important.

    What people don’t realise is that Akira Yamaoka himself used a SHITLOAD of samples himself for the Silent Hill soundtracks – a lot of sounds I thought were original turned out not to be. It doesn’t take anything away from the splendor of his work, but still, it’s something to remember 🙂
