The surface of the Earth may be a blasted wasteland, its music shops and symphony halls reduced to smoldering ruins. But as long as humans survive, so too will music. It's in that spirit that I enjoy the music of Metro 2033 and its equally post-apocalyptic sequel, Metro: Last Light. The games have a distinct musical sensibility, as the grim men and women surviving in the irradiated Moscow Metro carry on the musical traditions of… well, mostly of folk guitar and heavy metal. Cool by me.
Earlier today, Chris observed how many of the everyday-life details in Metro: Last Light can make the game's cities feel uniquely lived-in. I agree, and the music plays a big part in that. In Last Light's early goings, you'll make a tour through a well-known entertainment city, sort of the last bastion of the theatre for post-apocalyptic Russia.
