Today’s track is titled “Hydro Dam” from the upcoming Crysis 3, and will play during what we can only guess will be a section of the game with a hydro dam. It starts off well enough, with a calm but worrisome piano solo that implies impending trouble. It then starts escalating alongside a violin, drums and what seems like eloquent and distant chimes. It escalates even further, until… a pause. Everything is silent for a moment, and then…
BUUUUUUURRRRR-UURR-DRUM, BUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRR-URRR-DRUM! BUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRR-URRR-DRUM, BUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRR-URRR….BOOOOOOP!
It’s hard not to feel in the moment of the action when those heavy synthetic pushes come along. No doubt players will feel like total badasses when they shoot up CELL forces while this plays in the background. It feels quite similar to the tempo, pace and tone of “One Way In” from Crysis 2, which is definitely not a bad thing considering that the buildup and heavy synths worked wonders for that one too.
This piece was composed by Bulgarian composer Borislav Slavov, who also created much of the score for Crysis 2. You can check out his Last FM profile here.
