Remember the first documentary we saw from 343? Well, everyone was definitely looking for the song in the background and it has finally been released online in great quality.
This is pretty cool, but I hope in the finished version, the choir is improved. I'm not such a fan of this synthesised one. I love the fact the motifs of the original Halo trilogy theme are embedded throughout.
I think this is pretty good... but in my opinion, the original Halo theme is one of the best video game themes ever, and this doesn't even come close.
you're right, but technically it's impossible to top that music no matter how good it is, because the orginal halo didn't have anything to compare to, it was it's own thing and at the same time amazing.
Agreed. The 1st 33secs. had much promise. 1:26 to 1:33min mark much promise. 2:23 to end had much promise. Everything else sucked & had the sound of I dont know... not Halo.
The beginning reminds me of 'The Forgotten City' theme, from Final Fantasy 7.
Sounds good...but it sounds more like Uncharted to me.
Really??? If i could see any game throught this music it would be Crysis but i really dont feel that sort of music is what Uncharted goes for...
Yeah, has more of a crysis vibe than Uncharted
How the hell does it sound like uncharted?
This is not especially great. It may very well be fitting with a new direction but it's not in the least bit clever and sounds much like somone blessed only in the art of sequencing. Predictable. Previous Halo music is on another page frankly Gone is subtle replaced with obvious albeit experienced production values but with very little understanding for shape or harmony. Marty need not worry here but it's a real shame he didn't stay on board I'm all for new and fresh but this is decidedly average in places And it truly is a shame because the game is shaping up very nicely and has so far has impressed me outside of this Evolution of Halo's music my arse
This isn't the officially released track from 343i. Rather, it's a recreation from a youtube user, Tridyrium. Still pretty awesome though.
It seems as though Neil Davidge just went for the generic 'epic score'. I was hoping for more of the dark ambient music he's known for.
Halo music is always perfect for the cinematic moments that are in the game. I feel since this is a new start for Master Chief we need a new anthem for this Trilogy. The classic Halo music has been going on for 10 years... The mario series has managed to keep the same tracks for years but they are remixed in some fashion... If the keep the original anthem for the series it needs a new sound to give Master Chief a new feeling while keeping the same bad ass attitude.
They basically recreate it slightly with each new game (usually). Halo reach is so far my favourite :). It has a beautiful "tribal" theme to it if you know what I mean.
The video link to the song is not made by Neil, but is a remake of the music played in the background of the Working at 343 vidoc done by the Youtube user kash117 using his own equipment.
That was awesome......and people wonder why halo is so popular.
Not a fan of this at all. I really hope the original Halo theme is present in this game. You can't have a numerical sequel in this series without its signature theme song.
I don't think we'll be hearing any original Halo songs in the game. I think someone asked him about that and he said probably not. I mean he is the new composer for the game, why would he use older music. They've already release some snippets and a full song already from Halo 4, take a listen. It was pretty good.
