Resident Evil: Revelations 2
Official Soundtrack


Composers: Daota Suzuki, Nima Fakhrara and Ichiro Kohmoto
Label: Sumthing Else Music Works
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 17 March 2015

Sumthing Else Music Works, through its licensing relationship with Capcom, release the official soundtrack for Resident Evil: Revelations 2. The album features over three hours of original score, defining a new musical direction for the series. The music was created and supervised by Capcom's composer and sound director Kota Suzuki in collaboration with film composer and multi-instrumentalist Nima Fakhrara as well as composer and sound designer Ichiro Kohmoto...

For those that have played and enjoyed the latest installment in the Resident Evil series, you'll already know what a treat you're in for. The music is an integral part of the game, helping to add another layer of suspense and outright creepiness and that doesn't change when listened to outside the confines of the game.

The album contains 95 tracks (3 hrs, 12 min, 26 sec), and while there are a lot of music cues, tracks like 'Lost - Enchained'; 'Distant Memories'; 'Neil 1'; show the beautiful, yet very creepy side of the score. Likewise, tracks like 'Revenant', which accompanied the appearance of big bad beasties, also works on its own merits... It still sends a cold shiver down my spine.

And if you're looking for beautiful themes, then look no further than 'Revelations - Previous Story 2'; 'Determination'; 'Theme of Barry'; 'Despair'; 'Lacrimosa: Mozart Requiem K626'; 'Ending Pattern H'; 'Revelations - Cliffhunger'; and 'The Struggle'.

Then we have the funky, upbeat 'Heat on Beat 2015/RAID MODE' which is the main music to be played in the Raid Mode of the game. It's wonderfully retro and it's upbeat club-style throws you off a little. This is followed by several other dubstep-esque tracks. It was also nice to have the 'Cheap Sweets' track (which is playing on the jukebox in the Wossek).

Yes, this could have been boiled down to under an hour of the highlights, but if you're a soundtrack fan, like me, then you'll cherish the fact that Sumthing Else Music Works are spoiling you by giving you the whole score to paw over.
