Hey! Listen – “The Guardian” (Darksiders II)

4

And now, time for something completely epic.

Composed by the legendary Jesper Kyd, this track for Darksiders II is titled “The Guardian.” It accompanies the boss fight for the gigantic Guardian and has been frequently praised as one of the best songs in the game. It’s easy to see why, given the fast-paced violin tempo and the use of what sounds like horns. Overall, a very lively composition that could have very well been the main theme for the game. In fact, we’re surprised it wasn’t.

Jesper Kyd is a danish composer that has worked on the soundtracks for the Assassin’s Creed, Borderlands and Hitman series’. He has a formidable collection of work by now, which extends to several films as well. Check out his site here.

Darksiders II is out now for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. You can read Nick’s review of the game here.
