Second volume of sci-fi shooter's score set to be released next month by Sumthing Else Music Works.
It looks like gamers are in for a long wait for Halo 3, but Sumthing Else Music Works hopes to make the wait a little easier with the forthcoming release of Volume 2 of its original soundtrack for Halo 2. Scheduled for release in the US on April 25, Volume 2 features more than 70 minutes of music from Bungie Studios audio director Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori. The album also features the work of guitar virtuoso Steve Vai. It will retail for $15.98. Sumthing Else has published a number of gaming soundtracks since 2000, including Age of Empires III, MediEvil Resurrection, and Kameo: Elements of Power.
That's funny, just the other day I was going to post something about how you should never name something like this "Vol. 1" because it's a jinx that makes it so there is never a second volume. Glad to see they're finally following up on it, hopefully the crappy bands like Hoobastank will stay far, far away this time.
I love the soundtracks. But its really to late for me. I mean I barely play halo 2 anymore so I'm not that excited about them. Maybe if they did it sooner, then yeah I'd buy it. I'll check from friends before buying this one...
um... if i want to hear halo music, i'll play the game. why would anybody want to listen to this music any other time? not for me at least.
FINALLY!!! soon I'll have both of Halo 2's soundtracks, already marked the day it'll come out, YAY!!!!
I love the Halo 1 Soundtrack, but was dissappointed with the 2nd one...Marty O'Donnel's work is amazing, but Breaking Benjamin? Putting a nu-metal band in Halo 2 really felt like it cheapened the whole experience, hopefully they let Marty just do his thing with volume 2 and/or Halo 3 :)
This is great. The other Halo albums were awesome, and I suppose this will fall along the same line.
Marty O'Donnell is the awesomest musician ever to grace the world of videogames. I've been waiting for this for a while.
