Kyd has written the music for the upcoming Darksiders II, and has shared some tracks on his YouTube channel. As you'll hear in that top track, "Into Eternity," the music has more than a little bit of Assassin's Creed in it—but it tweaks things with just enough shambly darkness to conjure Death, Darksiders II's protagonist. It's like Assassin's Creed via Danny Elfman.
Which feels appropriate, considering that Death himself looks like a cross between Skeletor and Jack Skellington.
