The Music Of Silent Hill: Downpour Sounds Familiar

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.

You guys can post all the Promises and Theme of Lauras you want, but what made the music in Silent Hill games so memorable was everything in between the title and credits songs.

That's when ATMOSPHERE was the number one priority, and Yamaoka did that in spades with SH 1~4. It gives that unending feeling of isolation and despair, while at the same time being beautiful.
