Jesper Kyd's chilling score for the Skaven horde invades digital and streaming outlets on September 26
New York (September 12, 2017) - Today, Sumthing Else Music Works announced that BAFTA award-winning Danish composer Jesper Kyd's dark and twisted acoustic soundtrack for the first person melee/shooter Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide, based on the popular Games Workshop Warhammer series, will be released via digital and streaming outlets on September 26. The 36-track album compiled by Kyd includes the core game's original soundtrack, new music from the DLC expansions as well as instrumental songs heard in the game's local tavern, Red Moon Inn. Pre-order the official soundtrack now at Amazon, iTunes and Sumthing.com.
"It's a dynamic, raw and violent score that belongs to Vermintide's dark medieval setting," says Jesper Kyd. "We wanted the score to sound like it was performed by a Skaven band on acoustic instruments mangled by some mad Skaven scientist in the dark ages. It's very different from anything I have written in the past."
Kyd also mixed the score's visceral tracks with more traditional folk music, performed by a three-piece band in an old English-style pub, the Red Moon Inn, to give contrast to the intense combat experience and Skaven music, and to further define the historical period of Vermintide's world.
Developed by independent games studio Fatshark in Sweden, Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide is a co-operative action first person shooter and melee combat adventure set in the End Times of the iconic Warhammer fantasy universe. Vermintide is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
