Elden Ring
Original Game Soundtrack


Composers: Various
Label: Sony Music Soundtracks
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 09 September 2022

Sony Music Masterworks releases the original soundtrack to FromSoftware’s video game Elden Ring. The Golden Order has been broken. In the Lands Between ruled by Queen Marika the Eternal, the Elden Ring, the source of the Erdtree, has been shattered. Marika's offspring, demigods all, claimed the shards of the Elden Ring known as the Great Runes, and the mad taint of their newfound strength triggered a war: The Shattering. A war that meant abandonment by the Greater Will. And now the guidance of grace will be brought to the Tarnished who were spurned by the grace of gold and exiled from the Lands Between. Ye dead who yet live, your grace long lost, follow the path to the Lands Between beyond the foggy sea to stand before the Elden Ring. And become the Elden Lord...

Elden Ring is a 2022 action-roleplaying game with a soundtrack written by a team of composers consisting of Yuka Kitamura, Tsukasa Saitoh, Shoi Miyazawa, Yoshimi Kudo and Tai Tomisawa. Over the course of 67 tracks (3 hr, 23 min, 12 sec), the album transports listeners back to the Lands Between with some of the game’s most iconic themes.

Not only is this an engaging soundtrack of themes for fans of the game, it also works as a standalone collection of interesting set pieces for those who have never played the game. The diversity on offer, not to mention the composers' various styles, ensure that there's plenty to digest and enjoy here.

It touches on so many themes and covers just about every base you can imagine. Whether you seek out your favourite themes, or soak everything up like a sponge, you won't be disappointed by the quantity or the quality.

Obviously, for fans of the game this is a lovingly crafted musical souvenir of the music from the game. It also has a lot to offer to casual soundtrack collectors.
