If you haven’t heard the name Cris Velasco there is still a good chance you’ve played one of the games he’s scored. Such titles as Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, Darksiders, Tron: Evolution, Prototype and Clive Barker’s Jericho are just a few in the long list of games he has scored. Well he will be adding one more to his resume by creating the score for the WiiU exclusive ZombiU. Velasco is going to haunt our dreams with such sounds as “detuned toys and instruments, carnival organs, distorted guitars, and haunting ambient textures, contrasted with the intimate emotion of piano and string quintet compositions.” That right there is almost enough reason for me to buy a WiiU. November 13 the game will be released.
If you’re not fully aware of exactly what Lollipop Chainsaw is, then you obviously don’t visit this site as often as you should.

If the over-the-top action and outlandish cast of characters didn’t quite give you a good enough idea of just how awesomely bizarre this game is going to be, it’s eclectic mix of music should.
The boss fights are being scored by Jimmy Urine, and Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka’s composing some original tunes for the game as well. On top of that, there’s a plethora of music licensed for the game, from groups like The Chordettes, Skrillex, and Five Finger Death Punch. Head past the jump for the full track list and a neat little behind the scenes video. READ MORE

The song below is the main theme song, and I’m definitely a fan. I wouldn’t mind slaying zombies with a few friends while this played in the background. Would you?
The other two songs, “Surrounded By Zombies” and “Zombie Uprising” can be found after the jump. Just make sure your ears are limbered up first, they’re pretty thick. READ MORE
