Mondo releases new vinyl special editions every single week. They are they ultimate edition of whatever they put out, featuring extensive liner notes, brand-new commissioned artwork, and always have a limited-edition size. The vinyl itself is usually colored or a photo disc as well. Basically, it’s like the Criterion Collection of movie and gaming soundtracks. This week sees the release of something truly special: Bear McCreary‘s epic score to the game God of War!
The wait is finally over! This past Friday, Sony released the highly anticipated GOD OF WAR for PlayStation, and Mondo is proud to present Bear McCreary’s (THE WALKING DEAD, COLOSSAL, 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE) incredible new soundtrack to the game on vinyl.
Mondo is proud to present the soundtrack to Santa Monica Studio’s GOD OF WAR.
This long-awaited sequel/reboot finds our titular hero Kratos – the violent, vengeful Greek God of previous chapters – settled down in Midgard, in a world of Norse mythology and monsters. The story hinges on the relationship between Kratos and his young son Atreus shortly after the passing of their matriarch. Kratos is forced to prepare his son for his future, while being haunted by the ghosts of his own past, both in form of new powerful enemies, and in his son’s worst tendencies.
Composed by Bear McCreary, the soundtrack to GOD OF WAR is truly epic and emotionally powerful. This album features some of Bear’s most beautiful compositions to date, bouncing back and forth between solemn and sublime.
Featuring original artwork by Jeff Langevin, and pressed on 2X colored 180 Gram vinyl (also available in 2X 180 Gram black vinyl), both the game and the soundtrack are modern masterpieces.
This one is not limited like other Mondo soundtracks have been in the past, but you can place a preorder now for when it ships in June! Do that right here.
