New York - November 16th, 2009 - Sumthing Else Music Works, through its licensing relationship with Gearbox Software, LLC, proudly presents the Borderlands Original Soundtrack featuring the original musical score from the highly acclaimed video game Borderlands TM . Developed by Gearbox Software, Borderlands TM delivers this year's most explosive and entertaining role-playing shooter (RPS) by combining the most addictive gaming elements found in action-packed first-person shooters with the deep character development of role-playing games (RPG). The album includes music from the game composed by Jesper Kyd, Sascha Dikiciyan, Cris Velasco and Raison Varner as well as bonus music tracks by these artists and Tim Larkin. The Borderlands Original Soundtrack is released on December 8th to retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works www.sumthing.com, and will be available for digital download on Sumthing Digital www.sumthingdigital.com and iTunes®.
"The Borderlands soundtrack was a tremendous collaborative effort between Cris Velasco and Sascha Dikiciyan, Jesper Kyd and myself," said Borderlands Audio Director Raison Varner. "From the very beginning we wanted to provide a score to Borderlands TM that would stand out as unique and fresh. Borderlands spits attitude from the opening scene until the end of the game and we needed to match that energy. I hope that listeners will enjoy the mix of ethnic instrumentation, heavy electronic influences and driving beats that help keep Borderlands TM in your face all the way through!"
