THQ have confirmed the details about the eagerly anticipated soundtrack to the MX vs ATV game. In a press release today, THQ goes on to explain both a bit about the game, what we can expect from it and outlines the details surrounding the soundtrack and the process behind its creation. It is as follows:
THQ Inc. today announced the official soundtrack for MX vs. ATV Reflex, the latest edition to the multimillion unit-selling franchise, is now available for purchase and download at online retailers worldwide. The soundtrack, helmed by renowned music industry veteran Raymond Herrera (Fear Factory, Arkaea) through his company, 3volution Productions, unites a powerful blend of original, hard hitting creations with the games cutting edge features, including intuitive, dual-stick control and real-time terrain deformation. In addition, the soundtrack is compatible with most MP3 players (including with iPod®), iTunes® and Windows Media Player.
Recorded at Temple Studios in Chatsworth, Calif., which Herrera co-owns and operates with B-Real (Cypress Hill), the soundtrack came to fruition through collaboration between Herrera, his industry colleagues and the team at THQs Rainbow Studios. The end result impressively reflects a variety of heavier music styles, with influences such as Killswitch Engage, Soilwork, Corrosion of Conformity and Fear Factory. Collaborators on the MX vs. ATV Reflex soundtrack included Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory, Arkaea), Jon Howard (Threat Signal/Arkaea), heavy music industry professionals Jeff Kendrick and Mike Spreitzer, as well as emerging hip-hop artist Young De.
The MX vs. ATV Reflex soundtrack is a perfect example of great synergy between the right music and a compelling gameplay experience, said THQ Vice President of Global Brand Management Brian Coleman. The overall product is certain to have appeal with a widespread audience of game enthusiasts, off-road fans and mainstream consumers.
We wanted the soundtrack for MX vs. ATV Reflex to sound like a full-fledged album, and as a long-time fan of Motocross, it was great to help add the realism to this already amazing game and franchise, said Herrera. All in all, it was a fun project to work on, and the end result sounds great especially every time I play the game!
