The Shadowgrounds soundtrack is a big part of the game experience and consists of different genres, such as atmospheric ambient, cinematic orchestral scores and fierce action music
influenced by such genres as aggressive breakbeat and hard electronic.
While the styles differ, each track is designed to support the game experience.
The music (and the sound effects!) were created by Frozenbyte's incredibly
talented in-house musician Ari Pulkkinen
. In addition, the guitarist from Finnish monster metal band Lordi
, Amen, worked closely with Ari on the aggressive action tracks and performed live guitar to create several awesome riffs that are used on the Soundtrack. Lordi the band won the Eurovision song contest in 2006, marking the first time Finland has ever won the contest (or placed in the top-5). Frozenbyte congratulates Lordi on making Finnish music history - and hopes there's more co-operation possibilities in the future!
The Soundtrack has been reviewed at GSoundtracks
, where it received 3,5 out of five stars. There is also an interview
with Ari at the same site.
