The next Silent Hill won't feature the musical stylings of series mainstay Akira Yamaoka. Dexter composer Daniel Licht is filling the void in Silent Hill: Downpour... and doing a pretty good job of delivering the same musical vibe.

Konami has released a sample of Licht's contribution to Silent Hill: Downpour, about 90 seconds of moodiness, mandolin and dissonance. And, so far, it's good. Take a listen while re-reviewing the game's latest screen shots. The eighth major Silent Hill game is slated to come to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this autumn.
