It was announced last week that Dutch drum and bass / dubstep giants Noisia would be scoring a large portion of the new Devil May Cry game. The fifth game in the series, entitled DmC: Devil May Cry, is due for release in January next year and will feature three hours of music from Noisia, who have been working on the project for around a year already.
A few days ago, the group released a sample track on their Soundcloud, sparking massive interest in the forthcoming release and reaching well over one hundred thousand plays in less than a week.
Noisia said about working on the project:
“It’s been an awesome experience working with Ninja Theory on the game. We had great freedom but were also bound by certain criteria typical in the game world. These are challenging boundaries (for example; consistency in sonics over 180 minutes of music) but also lots of space in terms of dynamics & progression and instrumentation, being able to create soundscapes without having to worry about holding the attention of a dancefloor. Their music director was great to work with, good vibes. It’s great when you get to play to your strengths. Also, the game kicks ass!” – Noisia, June 2012
The sample provided by the group is a heavy dubstep track that would fit perfectly onto one of their albums and also into the previous Devil May Cry games. They have managed to create a sound that is typical of the Devil May Cry series whilst also making it their own. The
track is available for free download from the Noisia Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/noisia
