Today’s featured track, from the recent reboot of Tomb Raider, is called “A Call For Help,” though you recently won’t be doing that yourself while listening to this fine composition.

While a lot of the track consists of solid if slightly forgettable tension-building, occasionally there pops up a beautiful and unique rendition of the chorus used in Lara’s theme, one that succeeds in making the piece feel frantic and urgent. Meanwhile, the use of tribal drums in places helps to give it that oh-so fitting survivor feel. Check it out below and let us know what you think!

The track was composed by Jason Graves, an American composer who has also scored games like the Dead Space series, F.E.A.R. 3, Section 8 and Alpha Protocol, among many others. You can check out his official site here.
