Max Payne 3’s TV ad has a pretty slick song which you can listen to above. Not to mention the ad is pretty cool, debuting during the Lakers v. Spurs game on ESPN.
The interesting thing about this games soundtrack is the use of a band and not a composer. Health is an LA-based band formed in 2006 and has “created hundreds of hours of amazing music for the game’s score, and distilled it into a devastatingly moody and atmospheric soundtrack album,” says Rockstar’s soudntrack supervisor, Ivan Pavlovich. “By using a band instead of a traditional composer, we’ve created a sountrack that sounds completely unique.”
Max Payne 3 will drop on May 15th which is just around the corner. I’m looking forward to the game as well as the soundtrack that releases on May 23rd.
