Good evening GTAGamers!
I do hope you’re enjoying your Mass Effect 3 eve. It’s like Christmas, but better because it involves a Shepard…
Enough of that though. News leaked about the new Silent Hill game being released on the 13th for the PS3 and The XBOX 360, Silent Hill: Downpour. Konami released the first track off of the soundtrack for the game, and for the first time since the series has started, it will not be composed by Akira Yamaoka.
You may remember that Yamaoka left Konami in December of 2009 after working for the company for sixteen years. The composer left to focus more of his time elsewhere, while continuing to do freelance compositions on the side.
The new composer, Daniel Licht, has signed on to do the composition for both Downpour and Book of Memories, the PS Vita game due out on March 28th. The game will finish off Silent Hill month and looks to be promising.
You may remember Licht from previous works which include the main title theme for Hellraiser part IV, and more recently, the blood theme from the popular HBO series, “Dexter.” Below is said blood theme, and is the tune which makes me believe Konami may be onto something.
It’s not Yamaoka in the slightest, but Konami did say they wanted to keep the franchise popular for old fans, but spruce it up for new fans. Without further ado though, here is Licht’s first piece for Silent Hill: Downpour.
For newcomers to the game who’ve maybe never played before, but are thinking of starting this month with the relaunch, here is a classic piece from Yamaoka. This song/theme is from the original Silent Hill, and is still one of the creepiest compositions to this day.
Do you like the sounds of the new theme, do you hate it, or do you not care at all at this point you just want to get your hands on the game? Let us know.
Cheers for now dear readers,
