Rockstar Games is gearing up to release the Max Payne 3 Soundtrack, which was scored by HEALTH. Based on this new track “Tears,” the band have worked hard to channel the raw grit of a Brazilian ghetto.
I was a little surprised to hear that a gaming company had signed up the LA-based noise rockers for the task, but thinking about it further, I believe it shows that game developers really treat their work as an art. Why else would you enlist a relatively unknown indie rock band to score your work?
Clearly, Rockstar Games appreciate originality. Dark originality, at that.
