21:51 - moonflash Not familiar with much of Hitoshi san's work apart from Vagrant story (which was stellar) but the games he's worked on looks like a list of stuff I've been meaning to check out for ages! (like Tactics ogre and Dragon's Crown)
21:50 - !J.O.O.E.! Speaking of soundtracks, Alien Isolation's is exceptional. I had to turn down the actual music as it was making me too tense but that combined with the amazingly rendered ambient effects and sounds is something else.
21:41 - moonflash Yeah, Colossus and Silent Hill are brilliant. Also Assassin's Creed Brotherhood had a pretty good OST. Apart from that, literally anything by Nobuo Uematsu, Yasunori Mitsudia and Yoko Shimomura is masterclass.
As you all know Running Wild broke up in April last year. But it seems that the now ex-frontman, Rolf "Rock'n'Rolf" Kasparek, is still making music. You can check out a new song, entitled "Burning Wheels", online at this location. The music player is at your upper right, where you can listen to "Burning Wheels" featuring the vocals and guitar of Rock'n'Rolf.
More details about this supposedly new project as they surface.
