Whether you enjoy the Halo games, appreciate them from afar, or despise Bungie’s wildly successful first person shooter franchise, you have to admit one thing: it’s got some fantastic music. Apparently, this will continue with Bungie’s wildly anticipated Destiny.
Initially, there appears to be a Ben Prunty-lite electronica influence, but that doesn’t last. But it only takes a few seconds before Martin O’Donnell’s beloved epic, sweeping orchestra kicks in. At 1:06, when the violins and chorus take over, it becomes clear the man who composed the iconic Halo theme is back.
If this is any indicator of how the full soundtrack will sound, we’re in for a real treat. Can you imagine fighting in a Bungie-developed combat sandbox with a track like this playing in the background? What do you guys think?
