DmC: Devil May Cry Soundtrack Review: This is a review of the video game score DmC: Devil May Cry by Noisia.

Noisia is a band I am not familiar with, but they are a Drum n Bass band from Netherlands that dabbles with the occasional dubstep. Sounds like an awesome mix, but I wasn’t too impressed with their output when I listened to their music in Spotify. Still, everyone deserves a chance to excel and as far as I know, it’s their first game score.

The first cue ‘Crush Him’ was used in one of the trailers and it’s a pretty cool track with some decent vocal. So far so good. Then we come to ‘Found’ which is barely ambient noise, but it makes absolutely no sense on album. I can only pray that it does in the game itself. These first couple of cues are a good indication that it is a very unbalanced score and I would be correct in that assumption.

‘Poison Theme’ is what I had hoped this score would sound like. It’s an awkward beginning but it turns out to be a bad-ass dubstep track that ticks all the right boxes. What a shame then that this score doesn’t offer much of that. To add to the injury there are a few more ‘sound fx’ cues that is absolutely unlistenable.

This is not a score I can heartily recommend unfortunately. I wanted this to succeed, but as an album experience it’s quite bad. The score was written specifically for the game and as such it may work great there.

HIGHLIGHTS:
05. Poison Theme

GEEK SCORE: 55
