Max Payne 3 Soundtrack Releases May 23
Composed and recorded by LA-based band HEALTH, the soundtrack blends rock, powerful drums and electronic soundscapes, taking influences from Brazil, New York and the themes of the original games.
John Famiglietti of HEALTH said:
“Working on the soundtrack to Max Payne 3 was a great experience. Rockstar gave us the freedom to bring our own sound to Max’s dark story, and we’re really proud of the results.”
Why go with a band instead of a composer? Rockstar soundtrack supervisor Ivan Pavlovich said:
“By using a band instead of a traditional composer, we’ve created a soundtrack that sounds completely unique. HEALTH have created hundreds of hours of amazing music for the game’s score, and distilled it into a devastatingly moody and atmospheric soundtrack album.”
Excerpts from the soundtrack can be heard in the new Max Payne 3 TV spot; have a listen:
