Mondo Presents Bear McCreary’s score to GOD OF WAR game reboot on double LP vinyl
The wait is finally over! This past Friday, Sony released Santa Monica Studio’s highly anticipated GOD OF WAR for PlayStation, and Mondo is proud to present Bear McCreary’s incredible new soundtrack to the game on vinyl.
This long-awaited sequel/reboot finds our titular hero Kratos – the violent, vengeful Greek God of previous chapters – settled down in Midgard, in a world of Norse mythology and monsters. The story hinges on the relationship between Kratos and his young son Atreus shortly after the passing of their matriarch. Kratos is forced to prepare his son for his future, while being haunted by the ghosts of his own past, both in form of new powerful enemies, and in his son’s worst tendencies.
Composed by Bear McCreary (THE WALKING DEAD, COLOSSAL, 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE), the soundtrack to GOD OF WAR is truly epic and emotionally powerful. This album features some of Bear’s most beautiful compositions to date, bouncing back and forth between solemn and sublime. (For more information on the score, see: https://musiquefantastique.com/genre-film-music-news/ (scroll down to March 22, 2018).
Featuring original artwork by Jeff Langevin, and pressed on 2X colored 180 Gram vinyl (also available in 2X 180 Gram black vinyl), both the game and the soundtrack are modern masterpieces.
