Gears of War Sonic Melee - Epic shooter scores with an equally epic soundtrack

Gears of War was clearly one of the standout titles of last year's holiday season. While the eye-searing graphics may have been the biggest draw, gamers found themselves treated to equally brilliant sound design, tight, visceral gameplay, and a compelling world to claw their way through. Tying all the elements together was the dynamic musical score by Kevin Riepl - a score that will finally see a commercial release on July 31st.

"The soundtrack CD was always something we wanted to do for Gears," Riepl told IGN recently.

collector of VG music, and this one will be coming to me as well. This is still one of the best games, I have played. I love playing this game on Hard-Core with co-op. It has not gotten boring. I can't wait for GOW 2.

Does anybody knows if it has the Start menu tune>?
That tone really sets the mood, almost like before opening the door to the gates of hell..hehe

I'm a geek like that..hehe, I like music that sets the mood. Also, anybody wants to trade VG music.OC remixes, IM me.

whenever I think of Gears, it was the first game I bought with the 360, that tune comes to mind. Whats the name of it? on the soundtrack?
