With the release of Myth III: The Wolf Age imminent, Gamespy.com has released the entire Myth III soundtrack. Available for download via Fileplanet, the MP3 soundtrack weighs in at a hefty 64.4 MB.
Componser and sound designer, Zak Belica, has penned an acompanying article for Gamespy that provides extensive details on the soundtrack. Belica, who has composed soundtracks for hit games such as SiN, Heavy Metal: FAKK 2, and Blair Witch 3, describes the Myth III soundtrack as his "most ambitions orchestral score to date." Here's a brief snippet from the article:
Since the game takes place 1000 years or so before the first Myth game, we wanted to make the music a tad more primitive and tribal. To achieve this, we went for a more spare sound, with a few more basic instruments per track instead of giant orchestras. The percussion used is also primitive; I used shield hits, metal strikes and leather/skin drums to give the parts a home-brewed feel. Scott Campbell and I went through the game and created an outline of the kinds of music needed for each section of the game. We came up with headings such as "Journey," for when the player is traveling, "Mourning" for sad events, and "Hero" for when Connacht is in charge, etc. These headings are reflected in the piece names and in the music itself.Myth III: The Wolf Age is scheduled to be released on the PC by the end of the month, with the Mac version following shortly after, probably sometime in early November.
