Anyone else feeling a 1940’s Mafia/gangster vibe right now? Gangster Squad and Omerta: City of Gangsters recently came out, and we also published a “Most Wanted Next-Gen” article focusing on a possible Mafia III. In that case, why not make an offer you can’t refuse and coincide all of that with an excellent track from Mafia II?

The piece is simply titled “Main Theme” and was composed by Matus Siroky, Adam Kuruc and the FILMharmonic orchestra in Prague. It can be found in the game’s main title screen. What starts off as a gentle piano piece is quickly given a faster tempo by a rising violin piece, and before long a soaring sense of ambition and discovery is presented by a beautiful orchestral ensemble. It actually feels like quite a hopeful and feel-good piece during that segment, only for the track to soon sink into a more melancholy state for the finale.

Matus Sirosky and Adam Kuruc are both Slovak composers. In addition to Mafia II, Sirosky has worked on the scores for more obscure/indie titles like Empire of the Gods and War on Folvos, while Kuruc regularly works in film and television. You can check out Sirosky’s official site here.
